Blood?
 Quoting: AtsuiPanda


Coconut Water has been heavily advertised on the market for a while now (not to be mixed up with Coconut Milk) as a hot health-drink, but did you know that it has the SAME electrolyte balance as our blood plasma? Coconut Water is one of the biggest sources of electrolytes out there and is almost identical in composition to human blood plasma. In fact, during the Pacific War, coconut water (taken straight from a coconut, it acts as a universal donor) was used as emergency blood plasma transfusions to wounded soldiers. Apparently, this is still done in some third world countries. Wild, right? Since coconut water is always nestled into a coconut, it is always sterile and ready to drink (or inject), because the layers of the coconut act as a filter. (Disclaimer: these are facts about what some people do in EMERGENCY situations, mainly in the past. In today's world, coconut water is around for us to rejuvenate our blood with electrolytes by drinking it.)

My Dad told me this too. It was also later confirmed by my uncle.

But seriously, this is correct and I have a newfound love of coconut water.

My family uses unrefined coconut oil as a moisturizer for our bodies and to keep frizz out of my daughters hair.

We cook with refined coconut oil, which is awesome! A little goes a long way and there is no "coconut" flavour, just all the benefits that come with it.

We also use coconut oil for oil pulling with a lot of success too!

Oil pulling is great for teeth and overall health. Alzheimer's and most other chronic illnesses (including cancer) are infectious diseases and since coconut oil is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal it helps in many ways.

when my kids get a cut or bruise, they used to hate me applying hydrogen peroxide to clean it, so I started applying coconut oit with a bandaid on top, the next day the cut or bruise is clean and healed more quickly, and it doesnt sting at all, amazing.

Actually it's they're, not their, or there, in that sentence you were using.

But yeah, they are finding many benefits to coconut oil, but of course the establishment wants to tell you it's bad for you and then propagate the lie that their GMO oils like canola or soy are good for you.

Coconut oil/butter and all the new agey stuff has to be partially to blame.

I saw coconut butter deodorant with a nice label that says non-toxic and it didn't have aluminum in it or something or another. People are going crazy for health eh?

I have been using coconut oil for the past 12 years for everything. Alternative medicine has used it for a very long time and I'm happy it's starting to become more mainstream. It's amazing. My dentist now recommends oil pulling to all her patients. Of course she is a wholistic dentist so she knows her stuff. :)

Soap? WTF are you talking about?








Also, there is NOTHING better for diaper rash then coconut oil. I mean NOTHING! Be careful though for some strange reason when I put it on my kids in the morning the diaper seems like it explodes? It's weird but works amazingly.


And put it on your dry skin. It'll turn your skin back to being baby soft.
 Quoting: daydreamin


Coconut oil is definitely an anti-fungal, I have used it for this before. I know my skin gets really, really dry in the winter though and while I use it to moisturize my face, I think my skin personally needs something a bit heavier for the dry air. Was going to do olive oil after coconut oil.

If you haven't already tried it, I find hemp oil works awesome during the winter time. My feet also get extremely dry and I find it really helps.

daydreaming - we are starting to remove it from our grocery selection. it is really only meant for candles and soap... our most popular brands have had it.. like our beloved mayonese....but it is no good. they are starting to replace it with soya oil.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28751458


Soya oil is cheaper. THAT is why they're likely replacing it. Just another company cost-cutting and jeapordizing your health. Bet you don't even see those savings in the cost either.

You're talking about hydrogenated coconut oil. We're talking about Extra Virgin (non-hydrogenated) Organic Coconut Oil. Big difference.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28751458


Couldn't be farther from the truth. It is the best oil for consumption - both internally and topically (eat and apply to skin). If you don't use animal fat for frying and high heat cooking, the *only* oil you should be using is EVCO (extra virgin coconut oil; cold pressed, not centrifuge extracted).

With all due respect, you should really do some research into this and not swallow, unchallenged, what the MSM and Big Pharma feed you and try to scare you with.
There must be a law that people can't lie.
