The Ideal Food

Coconut is considered to be the ideal food for human beings. The reason: the arrival of Homo sapiens on the planet is reported to coincide with the appearance of coconut palms.
In traditional households, coconut is strongly recommended for the expectant mother as it provides all the essential ingredients such as vitamins, minerals and enzymes for the growing foetus. Coconut is considered a great preventive medicine. It prevents the occurrence of smallpox, intestinal infections, tumours, etc.


Coconut
The Oil
There are two ways of extracting oil from the plant.
Commercially, oil is extracted by crushing copra, the kernel of the dried coconut fruit. For medicinal use and also for use as hair oil, oil obtained by boiling coconut is, however, recommended by the native physicians.
