11. Improve your immunity

Imagine how amazing it would be to not fall ill during the winter? For many people that’s a possibility, thanks to a great immune system – but if you don’t eat particularly well, then you may well find yourself falling ill right throughout the winter months.

Coconut oil can stop that. Lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid are all found in coconut oil, and they have antifungal, antiviral and antibacterial properties. These acids can help the immune system fight off infections. The fatty acids in lauric acid also help the body turn fat into monolaurin, which is effective in treating a multitude of viruses.
