7 Benefits and Uses of Coconut Oil

March 07, 2015 2 min read

To date, there are over 1,500 studies proving coconut oil to be one of the healthiest foods on the earth! This miracle food is rich in healthy fats called medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs):
  • Caprylic acid
  • Lauric acid
  • Capric acid
Unlike other fats, MCFAs are easier to digest, not readily stored as fat and instead are quickly converted to energy AND have powerful anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. 1) Coconut oil is one of the safest cooking oils- Because it is a saturated fat, it remains stable at higher temperatures where other oils turn into a toxic sludge. 2) Coconut oil helps to balance blood sugar- Try as scoop in your smoothies, elixirs or just a spoonful between meals. 3) Boosts the immune system and wards off illness- Many diseases today are causes by the overgrowth of bad bacteria, funguses, viruses and parasites in the body. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which is known to reduce candida, fight bacteria, and create a hostile environment for viruses. 4) Improves memory and brain function- MCFA are a powerful and quick acting fuel for the brain. 5) Improves energy and endurance-If you need a boost before a long grueling workout, coconut oil and a little raw honey will do the trick! 6) Cure-all for skin problems- Coconut oil is not only handy in the kitchen but in the bathroom too! It’s the most amazing skin moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup remover. Many people sure coconut oil as a topical treatment for rashes and burns. 7) Maintains dental health- Yes, you can use coconut oil here too! Try the ancient dental care technique of oil pulling with a teaspoon of coconut oil. Removing all the germs from between your teeth, it’s the ultimate detox for your mouth!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
