Here's the rundown. Coconut oil can be used for:
- an antiseptic for cuts or teeth brushing
-cooking (its healthier than most oils for cooking)
-burning fat, preventing disease/disorders, providing energy
The list goes on. The coconut is a mighty thing, where a persons health is involved.. except for the fact that it ones falling from trees kill more people than sharks do. There are even some companies that use the oil as a fossil fuel alternative to power heavy machinery.
These days, I usually drink some coconut water before or during a set to keep hydrated. The potassium is good for the muscles too, especially if you're a drummer and cramp up during a set. Stay healthy and rock on.
