We have all heard that fat is bad, however this is not true since there are many "good" fats that the body needs to properly function and some good fats can actually help the body lose weight! There are bad fats of course such as trans fats (eliminate from diet) and many saturated fats (reduce consumption).
Coconut oil is a saturated fat. While saturated fats have also received a bad name, not all saturated fats are created equal and coconut oil while a saturated fat is one of the good fats and makes one of the best home remedies for psoriasis.
Coconut oil is obtained from the fruit of palm tree and there are no identified side effects whether it is applied directly on the skin or scalp or consumed making it one of the best home remedies for psoriasis. The smell of coconut is very pleasing for most people and it tastes wonderful. It can withstand high heat so it can be used effectively in cooking and baking. Since it is a saturated fat, it is usually solid at room temperature unless you reside in very hot climates. It quickly melts when heat is applied including body heat when it is rubbed between the palms.
In order to consume coconut oil and receive the various health benefits of this oil, 3 tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil are recommended on a daily basis. As mentioned previously, because it can withstand great heat, use it in place of various oils or butter that you would normally use. Use as a spread on bread instead of butter, use when popping popcorn, etc. Spread it on the skin especially soon after taking a bath or shower and see those psoriasis lesions disappear. This is an awesome product with many uses and is one of the best home remedies for psoriasis.
