Potential Health Benefits

As we mentioned in our article on the best vitamins for the hair skin and nails, some studies indicate that coconut oil has multiple benefits for the hair and skin, among other more general health benefits.

For example, one study concluded that coconut oil is effective and safe as a moisturizer. (1) While that appears to be true, this study was on using coconut oil topically rather than orally.

On a related note for the skin, coconut oil is high in lauric acid content, which is thought to be a safe and therapeutic treatment for acne. (2) (3)

Coconut oil has general health benefits too: in populations around the world where coconut oil is a prominent part of the diet, the people tend to be very healthy comparatively. (4) (5)

Product Overview

This is a unique and interesting product worth considering.

However, the known potential health benefits of coconut oil relating to the hair, skin, and nails are when applied topically. More studies need to be done on ingesting coconut oil orally because the two don’t necessarily translate.

There are many positive consumer reviews of this product, which makes us more inclined to recommend trying it with the stipulation that you keep track of your results.

As always, consult with your doctor before taking any new health supplements.
