Key Take Away
“There are different kinds of coconut oil. The word coconut oil is loosely used”
When we look at the different coconut oil. We need to make sure that we get what we pay for. There are some brands that will market their coconut oil as a specific type but in actual fact, it might not be a 100% correct. A better quality coconut product would have a lot more health benefits and is also more likely to last longer.
