10 Surprising Benefits Of Coconut Oil

5. Antacid
Coconut oil also helps with common stomach problems such as indigestion, heartburn or irritable bowel. It counter-attacks stomach acid and calms your system. It can also help lower the amount of bad bacteria in your gut, and help regulate your digestion.


6. Deodorant
If you are tired of buying deodorants that are filled with chemicals, parabens and artificial colors, make your own deodorant with coconut oil as a base. You’ll also need some baking soda and essential oils to provide texture and to make the deodorant smell good, but the fact that coconut oil fights bacteria is the key.
