THE AMAZING COCONUT: HOW IT PROTECTS YOU ALL AROUND
We live between a million dust particles floating around all the time; when we walk, when we talk, when we sleep, when we eat. It is quite easy for a small microbe, to get into our healthy system and create a mess leading to bigger malfunctions in the body. The security guard of our health, which is the immune system, basically serves and protects from all of those impurities on a regular basis. What not? From recognizing and neutralizing harmful substances from the environment, to neutralizing pathogens like bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi that have already entered the body and removing them forever.
And which one is rich enough to pay the guard? Which other that the tropical emperor, the superfood Coconut itself? Coconut oil is known for it’s rich Lauric acid content, which the body converts to Monolaurin, an agent which is a natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasite and anti-viral. This is a huge important factor, as many diseases today are caused by the overgrowth of bad bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites in the body. Other than creating a hostile environment for viruses, it also helps a body with weak immune system to directly fight them, by improving white blood cell counts. The ability that coconut oil has, to prevent viruses and pathogens, which creates hazardous situations ranging from Influenza to HIV, is more than phenomenal.
Various studies have indicated that coconut oil is a rock-solid soldier for your immune system.
