      Coconut oil contains medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are healthy fats that have the ability to target harmful microorganisms that can negatively affect health [1]. Caprylic acid and capric acid have antifungal propeties, while caprylic acid also has anti-cancer properties [2, 3]. The body can also use the MCTs in coconut oil for mental and physical energy and these fats also boost overall health [4-7]. Coconut promotes brain, organ, joint, muscle, and skin health [8-11].

      Caprylic acid is a potent antifungal that strengthens the immune system's ability to fight Candida overgrowth. Research also suggests that caprylic acid kills Candida cells and restores the acidic pH of the stomach, which supports digestive function and also makes it harder for Candida to survive or multiply [2]. Coconut oil is made up of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are healthy fats that go straight to the liver, where the body can use them as a quick source of mental and physical energy or turn them into ketones [4]. MCTs have numerous health-boosting properties including improved cardiovascular health, enhanced weight management, improved cholesterol readings, and heightened brain health [4-7]. Coconut oil supports moisture retention on dry, irritated skin (e.g., scalp) and it helps targets skin inflammation [8-11]. In addition, it contains healthy saturated fats that nourish and moisturize the skin and hair. It also contains lauric acid, which has antimicrobial properties [1].
