15. Fight the Flu
According to a study from Khon Kean University’s Faculty of Public Health, coconut oil can also be used to ward off flu bugs. The study monitored the effects of coconut oil (combined with ginger and massage) on 66 cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
Study findings revealed that those patients who consumed coconut oil (along with ginger and regular massage) experienced an increase in white blood cells, which are associated with warding off bacteria and viruses, and stronger immunity.
