Virgin Coconut Oil: The Oldest and the Healthiest Superfood

The power of virgin coconut oil

A common misconception is that one must invest in exotic food to help boost your immunity levels and ensure good health.

One such superfood is a old standing tradition known to all Indian households, and commonly found in every kitchen– Virgin coconut oil. While the craze for superfoods has evolved rather recently, Virgin Coconut Oil is the oldest superfood that is trusted by every Indian.

Researchers have found that coconut oil is recommended for its myriad health benefits. Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil is extracted using natural means or no heat process from the fresh and matured kernels of the coconut.

The important MCFAs present in Coconut Oil is lauric acid, caprylic acid and capric acid.

Lauric acid and its monoglyceride found in coconut oil are effective in obliterating a wide variety of lipid-coated bacteria by disintegrating their lipid membranes.

The function of Monolaurin is that of an antivirus that targets enveloped viruses (viruses encased in a protective layer of lipids and phospholipids). It kills the virus by dissolving the protective lipids surrounding it.

Studies show that monolaurin markedly reduced the viral count on patients with HIV, herpes, measles, and vesicular stomatitis, among other viruses
