Did you know coconut health benefits?

 Did You Know...

 . . . that coconuts are one of the wonder foods on earth that amply
provides for all human needs?  They can even save your life!  


      Few people (even fewer doctors) understand
how important the coconut is to stabilizing
blood sugar; lowering cholesterol; healing; hydration; and even replacing blood plasma in an emergency.

(Sanskrit for "the tree that supplies all that is needed to live") in
ancient India, the coconut palm has been recognized as a top immune booster,
antifungal, antibiotic, antiviral and antibacterial

remedy for thousands of years all over the world.  Yet, it has only been
recently that modern researchers have begun to fully discover the massive
health benefits
this amazing fruit seed offers.


      To give just one example of coconuts'
live-saving properties, they were used extensively in the Pacific during World
War II.  Since blood plasma supplies were scarce, it was very common for
medics to siphon pure
from young coconuts to be used as
emergency plasma transfusions for soldiers who were injured.  Since
coconut water is nearly identical to human blood, it was suitable for people of


      Because of its strong antioxidant
properties, the coconut can be used to:

==> Lower cholesterol

 ==> Improve digestion

 ==> Ward off wrinkles

 ==> Stabilize

 ==> Fight off viruses

 ==> Build cells

 ==> Regulate hormones

 ==> Increase thyroid production

 ==> Lose weight

 ==> Increase metabolism

 ==> Fight infections

 ==> Stave off memory loss

 ==> Kill bacteria

==> And



    Considered one of the most treasured
foods of all time, coconut products -- including coconut flesh, coconut water,
coconut oil, and coconut
-- each deliver superb health


      Coconut oil, for instance, is considered
the best and safest oil to use for cooking -- even superior to
extra virgin olive oil when it comes to giving the body what it needs for optimum
health.  Unlike other fats and oils that we  typically use for
cooking and baking, coconut oil does not form polymerized oils or dangerous
trans fatty acids in our bodies, which can raise our cholesterol levels; clog our arteries and even make our skin sag and wrinkle.

 Plus, this ultra-safe oil can give your body important antioxidants that
can help build stronger cells and improve your overall health and well being.


      Here are a few ways that you can use
coconut products to stave off disease and to recapture the look and feeling of


 Coconut Water - The coconut is a
natural water filter.  It takes almost 9 months for a coconut to filter
every quart of water stored within its shell.  This makes the resulting
coconut water completely pure and sterile, which is one reason why it can be
used for


      Another benefit of coconut water is the
fact that it has the highest concentration of electrolytes than anything else
found in nature. This makes it an excellent source of hydration.


 coconut oil.bmpCoconut Oil - In addition to being superior for cooking
and baking, coconut oil also makes a superb topical oil that can help to
naturally rid the skin of dangerous toxins.  It also gives the skin the
perfect mix of hydration and antioxidants that it needs to stay healthy, smooth
and younger-looking longer.


      Another great benefit of coconut oil is in
protecting your teeth from the bacteria that can cause cavities and disease.
 Simply rubbing a little fresh coconut oil on your gums and teeth can keep
them stronger and healthier than virtually any other dental treatment.


      Most people don't realize that coconut
oil can actually help you lose weight
!  Yes, simply changing your
cooking oil from the unsaturated fat variety to coconut oil can help
you lose those extra pounds.  Here's why:  
Unsaturated fats found in canola, corn and other vegetables oils, as well as
margarine  suppress the metabolism, which makes it harder to lose
weight -- and easier to gain it.  Over time, this metabolism suppression
may result in 20-30 pounds of excess weight that your body cannot get rid of.

 Coconut oil, on the other hand, helps to increase thyroid function and boost
your metabolism
-- 2 important components to shedding unwanted pounds.


 Coconut Cream - The best skin treatment product one can use
to achieve
may quite possibly be coconut
cream.  Unlike traditional skin creams which can actually introduce fats
and oils to the skin that will break it down over time, making it look older, creams
derived from the coconut can actually replenish the skin, giving it a more
youthful and healthy glow than most other
skin care products
on the market.


      When it comes to buying coconut products,
coconuts are not all created equal.  Wild coconuts are always best,
but can be hard to obtain if you don't live in a tropical country.
 Whether you are using this wonder food to boost your immune system;
increase your metabolism or fight wrinkles, using products from young
will help you reap the most benefit.


 coconut young.bmp    Young
coconuts contain the purest unsaturated fat, compared to the fat found in the
more mature varieties.  This is why they offer the most rejuvenation
for the body's tissues.  But how can you tell how old a
coconut is?  Young coconuts are usually green in color and oddly shaped.

 The brown hairy ones are mature coconuts, and while they offer a lot of
healthy benefits, they aren't nearly as good for you as younger varieties.
