While celebrities have been associated with a number of health and diet tips and tricks, supermodel Miranda Kerr's tip seems to be one of the easiest to live by!
The 28-year-old new mum, who is famous for her organic lifestyle, swears by certified organic coconut oil for everything from her healthy glow to her after baby weight loss.
Kerr, who recently launched her new certified organic products for Kora Organics in Sydney and Melbourne, said she includes the healthy oil as part of her daily routine.
"I will not go a day without coconut oil. I personally take four teaspoons per day, either on my salads, in my cooking or in my cups of green tea," she said in a recent interview.
Writing about the benefits of using coconut oil on a daily basis in her Kora Organics blog, Kerr has listed the oil as one of her favorite supplements. She also posts recipes which include the oil on the blog.
"Living a busy life as a working mum I recognise the importance of balancing our wellbeing; from making time for rest and relaxation, taking care of our skin and focusing on a diet that includes healthy, natural foods," she wrote on her blog.
So how does coconut oil work?
Although the oil was once mistakenly found to be unhealthy because of its high saturated fat content, it has been found to be a healthy fat.
The difference in coconut oil compared to other natural oils is the fat molecules called fatty acids. The fatty acids found in coconut oil are more easily absorbed and metabolised by the body than other fatty acids.
Coconut oil does not have a negative effect on cholesterol and helps to protect against heart disease. The oil has also been attributed to giving hair and skin a healthy glow and shine.
Miranda's favorite supplements
Apart from coconut oil, Miranda attributes her super slender body to a few other supplements. Here are a few of her favorites.
Grants Liquid Chlorophyll: This product offers a vitality boost along with vitamins, minerals and every essential amino acid. It helps increase energy and improves wellbeing.
Tahitian Noni Juice: Miranda credits this vitamin-rich supplement to boosting her immune system and keeping her skin looking soft and beautiful.
Floradex: Suffering from low iron, Miranda uses this supplement to give herself an iron boost, along with eating iron rich seeds and nuts such as pumpkin seeds.
