It’s said to have antibacterial properties that can heal, and even kill bacteria in the mouth.
And not only can you use it for its medicinal properties on your skin, by eating it you can help to protect against high cholesterol, and it also tastes pretty nice!
I have heard that it's good for you if it's the real unrefined stuff but not so good if you get cheap imitations. So read the label carefully. Also, I do wonder how ethical this stuff is. Shipping coconuts from halfway across the world just to please our health requirements....quite a lot of carbon emissions there.
My girlfriend bought some of this a while ago and I couldn't stop eating it by the spoonful. Gorgeous stuff, and didn't know it was so good for me
Same, I didn't know it had this many uses! >
I have a pot at the back of the cupboard and haven't used it for ages. I shall be getting it out again thanks for reminding me why I bought it!
