Coconut oil sprain benefits? The oil of the coconut can heal just about any bone or soft tissue damage that you can think of, and fast.
Injuries to skin, bones, muscles, tendons or cartilage can’t help but improve in the presence of Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA), the primary fat molecules found in coconut oil.
MCFAs accelerate the healing process as these unique fatty acids can feed your cells quickly. They also serve as powerful antimicrobials to ward off potential infection.
Immediately apply ice to the injured area for 10 minutes, then give it a 10 minute break. Repeat several times for a great start!
Massage warm coconut oil deep into affected area. Do this 5 to 10 times daily or use a coconut oil bandage for best results. You’ll be amazed how swift your sprain will disappear.
You can throw a few herbs in the mix if you like for extra kick, but don’t get me wrong. Coconut oil, alone, is potent enough to take care of sprains, fast.
