Coconut Oil General Information
Coconut, fruit of the coco palm (Cocos nucifera), is a tree widely distributed through tropical regions. Coconut also called Niyog is cultivated throughout Philippines. Mt. Banahaw, being in Quezon Province, being the Coconut capital of the Philippines, is rich in Niyog trees. The seed is adapted to dispersal by water because the large pod holding the nut is buoyant and impervious to moisture. The trees therefore establish themselves naturally on small islands and low shores bordering the tropical seas. The tree grows to a height of 60-100 ft., with a smooth cylindrical stem marked by the ring like scars of former leaves. It has at the top a crown of frond like leaves and yellow or white blossoms.

For thousands of years, Coconut Oil has been used as cooking oil, and is still a staple in the diets of many people living in tropical areas. Americans used Coconut Oil as well until shortages of imported oils during WW II made it necessary to look for domestic oils such as soybean and corn oil. Although soybean and corn oil make good substitutes for use in the kitchen, over time the polyunsaturated fats has started to take their toll on the health of Americans in the form of obesity and higher cholesterol levels.

Coconut Lore and Magical Uses
Among the Melanesian Islands is a creation myth in which the first four men throw coconuts upon the ground. From these arise the first four women. There is very likely some correspondence with the four elements to be found among these four pairs of the first humans.

The peoples of the Caroline Islands believe that the coconut is sacred to their god Lugeilan and represents life. Lugeilan taught them all ways in which this food and useful herb could sustain life. Through the coconut they learn of both life and death. Frazer in The Golden Bough informs us of the following:

In northern India the coco-nut (sic) is esteemed one of the most sacred fruits, and is called Sriphala, or the fruit of Sri, the goddess of prosperity. It is the symbol of fertility, and all through Upper India is kept in shrines and presented by the priests to women who desire to become mothers.

Many Hindu people place four coconuts into the coffin to bring the deceased good luck while the deceased is on the way to heaven. This is done before the coffin is cremated.

Coconut Oil Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Research shows extra virgin Coconut Oil to be a stable, healthy saturated fat that can reduce the symptoms of digestive disorders, support overall immune functions, help prevent bacterial, viral and fungal infections, and does not elevate "bad" (LDL) cholesterol. Some people, who consistently use Coconut Oil, have reported changes in their ability to go without eating for several hours without the effects of hypoglycemia.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate come from Coconut Oil. There has been dispute that this chemical is hard on the skin. Since it is coming from Coconut Oil, which has been proven to be beneficial oil to the skin, SLS from this source is not harmful to most people. Sodium Laureth Sulfate is milder than SLS. Those with allergies may have a difficult time.

It has been said in the US that high level of saturated fat is very negative. However, modern research has shown that not all saturated fats are the same. The true Coconut oil has been discovered to contain a unique form of saturated fat, which helps prevent heart disease, stroke, and hardening of the arteries. This Coconut oil has what are called MCTS, medium chain triglycerides, which are a special type of saturated fat separated out from Coconut Oil that range in length from six to twelve carbon chains. Unlike regular fats, MCTs do not appear to cause weight gain; they actually promote weight loss. This precious oil is also used in sports drinks to boost energy and enhance athletic performance, and is found in many natural cosmetics to promote healthy skin, and eliminate dandruff.
