Coconut Oil can help you fight infection
Fighting off potential infections is a job that your body has to take very seriously because you are almost always under assault from germs and bacteria. A little infection can go a long way toward making you feel unhealthy and sick. Fortunately coconut oil contains the 12 carbon, Lauric Acid. Coconut oil, upon being digested enzymatically, also forms a little monoglyceride by the name monolaurin. The monolaurin and lauric acid both kill potentially harmful and deadly pathogens that consist of fungi, bacteria, and even common viruses. Having these two fighters on your side by ingesting them in your diet can be a quick way to help alleviate potential infections in the future. Studies show that they will even kill Staphylococcus (Staph infection) which is very deadly, indeed!
