What is Coconut Oil?

 

The Story...
The Banabans are an indigenous people from a small Pacific island called Banaba or Ocean Island. In 1900 Banaba was discovered to be made of pure phosphate. This fateful discovery would see the beginning of eighty years of phosphate mining and the virtual destruction of the Banaban's beloved homeland.

In 1945 the people were relocated to Rabi Island over 2,000 miles away in the Fiji Island Group.
The Banabans and their island have now been left forgotten still suffering from one of the world's greatest environment and human rights injustices. The phosphate rich deposits of Banaba are now scattered across the farms of Australia, New Zealand and Great Britain.

Coconut has been used throughout the Pacific and Asia for thousands of years as both a food and a medicine. Only recently has modern medical research confirmed the many health benefits traditionally attributed to this remarkable oil.

Medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil also speed up the body's metabolism) burning more calories and promoting weight loss. The weight-loss effects of coconut oil have been clearly demonstrated by many researchers. These fatty acids do not circulate in the bloodstream like other fats, but are sent directly to the liver where they are immediately converted into energy, just like carbohydrates.

So the body uses the fat in coconut oil to produce energy, rather than store as body fat.
Virgin Coconut Oil helps increase the 'friendly bacteria' on the skin and will not destroy the natural pH balance which is necessary to promote healthy skin. Hair also benefits from Virgin Coconut Oil which will penetrate deep into the hair shaft to soften the hair while moisturizing the scalp at the same time.
