1) Hair care
Oil is an absolute must to nourish and maintain good hair. Otherwise, we risk having hair problems such as hair fall, frizzy hair, split ends and other hair issues. VCO is one of the best solutions for long and nourishing hair. It is an expert in conditioning damaged and unhealthy scalp. Furthermore, it can act as a hair mask to protect our hair and improve scalp health.
Hot oil massages with Nutriplus VCO further help in eliminating dandruff and aids in the regrowth. It also strengthens hair strands from root to tip. In turn, it is highly beneficial for improving the density and texture of hair.
2) Skin health
VCO is rich in antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. It acts as a natural skin barrier and skin conditioner. Moreover, it provides faster and better absorption on the skin, this is especially important for people with sensitive or oily/dry skin as it can help prevent potential adverse reactions.
One of the most important benefits of regular usage of VCO is that it protects the skin against the harmful effects of UV rays. In turn, VCO acts as a natural sunscreen. However, it might not be ideal for an entire day in the sun, so an individual would need to apply it at regular intervals to suit their needs.
VCO is also known for slowing the skin’s ageing process by keeping it healthy over a long period. Overall, it is soothing and nourishing on the skin.
3) Cooking and Nutrition
Using coconut oil for cooking is not a secret as we’re aware of its benefits. However, what makes it so good is that it is suitable for almost all recipes. It is ideal for baking and frying due to its higher smoke point. This is mainly due to a unique combination of fatty acids, as it contains over 90% of saturated fat, which makes it resistant to oxidation at high temperatures.
In terms of nutrition, VCO contains high amounts of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), such as lauric acid. MCTs may help us burn more calories compared to the same number of calories from longer chain fats. These are absorbed easily by the intestine and can be used by the body to produce energy. As a result, it increases the body’s metabolic rate and results in better nutrient absorption. Therefore, VCO is more beneficial to our health when we compare it to regular cooking oils.
Furthermore, VCO is a healthy biochemical that boosts our immunity. On the whole, VCO has antioxidant properties, essential vitamins and minerals for improving overall health.
