By now I’m sure you have noticed the increase in popularity of coconut products. You have likely jumped on the bandwagon, but I know there are still some people out there who are questioning the hype.

Well, I’m here to tell you that the rumors are TRUE: Coconut products – and specifically coconut oil – is a GOLD MINE when it comes to health and wellness!

5 Reasons Why YOU Should Include Coconut In Your Daily Life

  1. Coconut products are anti-aging.
  2. They contain healthy saturated fats and medium chain triglycerides (MCT) that help reduce cholesterol and support heart and brain health.
  3. The healthy fats found in coconut oil also support weight loss by how they keep you fuller longer and help stabilize blood sugar levels.
  4. Coconut oil also has anti-bacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.
  5. Coconut products are amazing for your skin and hair, delivering moisture and hydration.

What Are The BEST Ways To Use Coconut Oil?

For Skincare And Beauty:

  • Use on skin and lips as moisturizer.
  • On eyes as eye makeup remover.
  • In your hair to restore its shine or manage those little frizzies.
  • Use on cuts, scrapes, wounds and rashes to help fight infection and expedite recovery.
  • Use as a light and natural layer of protection from the sun (equivalent to SPF 4-8).
  • Blend with essential oils and baking soda for a natural deodorant.

In The Kitchen:

  • Replace olive oil and vegetable seed oils for higher-heat cooking with coconut oil, which is more stable at hotter temperatures.
  • Add a tablespoon into your morning coffee, smoothie or organifi green juice for a healthy fat boost in the morning. Use in baking.
  • Mix with turmeric for a 10 minute oil pulling session to extract toxins from your body.
  • AND… you can use it as a natural lubricant!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
