24 Apr 2017 (TNN): It is part of Angelina Jolie’s breakfast and a metabolism booster for Jennifer Aniston. Indian yogis have always highlighted its holistic healing properties. No wonder, coconut oil is regaining its day in the sun. A natural alternative to lip balms, a healthier substitute to refined cooking oils and a time-tested immunity booster, coconut oil is holistic.


After being dismissed as a heart-unfriendly agent for years, unrefined extra virgin and virgin coconut oil are ruling the market shelves. Research proves that virgin coconut oil is beneficial in increasing HDL or good cholesterol, which helps in preventing coronary heart diseases. What’s more? Capric acid in the oil stimulates the thyroid gland, speeds up metabolism and lowers resting heart rate.


Jennifer Aniston apparently was a devotee of the Coconut Diet for a period of time and was even spotted with a shopping cart full of coconut oil. The Coconut Diet is low carb and includes plenty of coconut in all its forms for weight loss. "Coconut is one fat that helps you lose weight by increasing metabolism. It is easily absorbed and digested in the body and goes straight into the liver aiding metabolism," shares Arti Gaur, an Ayurveda expert.


An ancient Ayurvedic dental remedy, oil pulling is suddenly all the rage. The practice whitens teeth by reducing plaque and improving gum health. Swish three spoonfuls of virgin coconut oil in your mouth for 20 minutes before rinsing every day! According to Luke Coutinho, MD, alternative medicine, this morning ritual is a must. "Our mouth is the doorway to our system and cleansing it prevents our body from a lot of bacterial and fungal infections," he says.
