Coconut Oil and Dental Care
Contributed by Leo Tat of Authority Diet
Coconut oil comes from the flesh of the coconut. It consists mainly of saturated fat as well as medium chain triglycerides (MCT) known for its benefit to our metabolism.
Around 50% of the fatty acid is made up of lauric acid which is antibacterial. By fighting the decay and gum disease-causing bacteria, coconut oil improves our dental health.
