Celebrities are jumping on the coconut oil craze and Vanessa Lachey is no exception. Vanessa is currently pregnant with her second child with Nick Lachey and is making every effort to stay healthy during her pregnancy. She recently shared on her instagram a photo of her drinking straight from a coconut with the caption, “Coconut oil and coconut water are a superfood for pregnancy. So drink up, Mamas!” And we agree Vanessa! Coconut oil can be used for everything from stretch marks to cradle cap to helping boost the immune system of mom and baby. Check out the picture for even more great uses!
“Coconut oil contains large amounts of lauric acid, a powerful anti-microbial fatty acid that protects the immune system of the fetus and newborn. Pregnant and nursing mothers should eat coconut oil to increase the quality of the womb environment and breast milk.”

“I’ve been using organic coconut oil on my body to alleviate stretch marks.”
– Actress Rebecca Romijn, InStyle Magazine, December 2008
