Coconoil is quickly growing to become a widely recognised brand recommended by some of the biggest names in celebrity culture including, Tinie Tempah, Alesha Dixon and the Senior England Rugby Team.

Why? Because of its versatility and amazing health benefits!

But don’t just take our word for it: International health and nutrition expert Dr Bruce Fife has spent many years researching coconuts and coconut oil and has devoted much of his work to educating people about the health properties of pure virgin coconut oil.

“I spent a couple of years doing research and pretty much read every study that was published on coconut and coconut oil and I realised that most people outside the research community had no idea about these wonderful benefits associated with it.

“There is a lot of misconception because there are lots of different types of fats; coconut oil is different and it’s unique.

 “All the fats and oils in our diet are composed of fat monocles known as fatty acids.

“You can put these fatty acids into three basic categories depending on their length of carbon chain: long chain fatty acids, medium chain fatty acids and short chain fatty acids.

 “About 97 per cent of the fats and oil in our diets are composed of long chain fatty acids, coconut oil is unique in that it is composed, predominately, of medium chain fatty acids.

“It is these medium chain fatty acids that give coconut oil most of its unique health properties which make it different to from the saturated fats you will find in meat and vegetable oils.

These fats actually promote good heart health, they protect against heart disease so they are healthy saturated fats.”

Pure virgin coconut oil is known to nourish, condition and protect skin, keeping it healthy and supple.

According to Dr Bruce Fife pure virgin coconut oil also has amazing antimicrobial properties, in laymans terms that’s the ability to kill disease causing bacteria, virus and fungus.

“You can use coconut oil internally to help protect against, and fight disease.

“You can [also] put it on your skin to help prevent infections, it’s very good for fungal infections such as ringworm, athletes foot and nail fungus.”
