how does it do all of this?

Coconut oil is nearly 90% saturated fat, evident in its solidity at room temperature, just like butter.

40-50% of this fat is made up of lauric acid which has a potent antimicrobial effect, and can kill harmful pathogens such as viruses, fungi and harmful bacteria.

Coconut oil is also extremely rich in MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides), which go directly to your liver where they are easily transformed into ketones. Ketones are a powerful energy source and are the only energy source other than glucose which can cross the blood brain barrier. Ketones are in fact being shown to be the brain’s preferred energy source, leading to their applications for Alzheimer’s and their effect on overall cognitive function.

It is also these readily created ketones which boost the body’s fat burning and can be helpful in a calorie deficit to aid weight loss.
