Coconut oil is one of the most important ingredients we use in all of our products at Hail Merry. From Merry’s Miracle Tarts to the Raw, vegan, orange cranberry granola. We love the flavor, we love the texture, and we love the way it your heightens the senses as you eat products with coconut oil in them… but, of course, we here at Hail Merry are also aware that coconut oil is quite a few health benefits, too. In fact, some oils, like coconut oil, actually have healing properties! That’s why we add these healthy oils to our products.
But, what’s that you say? You heard that oil was bad for you? Well, don’t take our word on it. Let’s ask the experts… how about… Dr. Oz?!?!
The benefits aren’t just on the inside. Coconut oil has been used for centuries as a skin treatment, and today is a main ingredient in natural lotions and sunscreens. But, says Dr. Oz, it can also replace some expensive medications that treat eczema and psoriasis, and even some fungal infections due to the presence of lauric acid, a natural antibiotic. That lauric acid also contributes Dr. Oz’s third health benefit of coconut oil: ulcers. Lauric acid is proven to kill the bacteria that causes many common stomach ulcers.
So, what’s the best way to get all these great benefits? No, eating more Mounds bars probably isn’t what the doctor ordered. But, adding a little Hail Merry in your diet is a great place to start.
