2. Coconut Oil Lowers Inflammation and Helps with Arthritis
There was one study in India that showed the high amounts of an antioxidant in coconut oil (VCO) lowered inflammation and worked on arthritis better than the top medications.
Another study showed that coconut oil stopped inflammatory cells from wreaking havoc. Coconut oil tastes nice, too.
You can have a teaspoon in the morning to get many of its positive effects, or you can mix it with your morning breakfast cereal or oatmeal. If you’re worried about eating raw coconut oil, don’t be.
It’s not unhealthy to consume it raw and straight, but you might not want to do that with other types of oils.
