      Coconut promotes skin health, including the scalp, and enhances the body's ability to prevent and/or repair UV-induced hair damage [1-4]. Coconut oil supports moisture retention in dry skin including the scalp, especially when it is used topically [1-4]. It also has the ability to target harmful microorganisms that can negatively affect scalp health [5]. Coconut oil also contains healthy fats that the body can use for energy and these fats also boost overall health [6-9].
      Skin and hair health [1-5]; Cooking and baking [6-9]
      Coconut oil supports moisture retention on dry, irritated skin (e.g., scalp) and it helps targets skin inflammation [1-4]. In addition, it contains healthy saturated fats that nourish and moisturize the skin and hair. It also contains lauric acid, which has antimicrobial properties [5]. 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 energy or turn them into ketones [6]. MCTs have numerous health-boosting properties including improved cardiovascular health, enhanced weight management, improved cholesterol readings, and heightened brain health [6-9].
