I just thought of another... organic coconut oil can be given to our pets to help keep them healthy, too. The best kind to use is organic coconut oil which is cold pressed, unrefined, and extra virgin. This kind may be found in any organic food market or online through Amazon. Who knew there could be so many health benefits of coconut oil when used internally and externally.

I am lucky enough to not have any major illnesses but I do have to say organic coconut oil kept me healthy throughout the winter. It definitely protected my immune system as well as improve my dental health. Yes, just another use... for oral health.

There are just so many uses for coconut oil, it's amazing. I brush my teeth with it in the morning and night and it helps prevent cavities, eliminate bad breath, and much more. You just have to try it to believe it. I'm so happy to have discovered all these wonderful health benefits of coconut oil.
