Mother Nature is incredibly generous in the way she provides - offering a bounty of fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrients to nourish your body so you can enjoy a long healthy life. One fruit in particular - the Coconut - is so abundant in its healing properties it's referred to as "the tree of life."
Coconut oil has been shown to protect you from viruses, bacteria, infection, cancer, thyroid, brain and heart problems... plus beautifies your skin and hair - and even burns fat!
In this article, we will explore why coconut oil is a powerful addition to your diet and body care regimen. Coconut Oil has Anti-microbial, Anti-fungal, Anti-oxidant and Antiviral properties.
Coconut Oil is the oil that has been extracted from the “meat” inside the hard-shelled coconut (Cocos nucifera). Coconut oil is solid at room temperature and has a very long shelf life.
Coconut oil is produced mostly in Asian countries and, as well as the food industry, is used widely in cosmetic formulations. Coconut oil contains short-term, medium-chain saturated fatty acids. Our body metabolizes these fats in the liver, immediately converting this into energy (fuel for the brain and muscle function) rather than it being stored as fat.
