It has about 50% lauric acids, having qualities similar to mother’s milk, thus confirming its disease-fighting ability.
When lauric acid enters human body it gets converted to Monolaurin, which has the ability to enhance immunity.
Several studies have confirmed that this compound has the ability to kill viruses including herpes and numerous other bacteria. Its antiviral effect has the ability to considerably reduce the viral load of HIV patients.
VCO is not subjected to high temperatures, solvents or refinement procedures and therefore retains the
fresh scent and taste of coconuts. It is rich in vitamin E, is non-greasy, non-staining and is widely used in soaps, lotions, creams and lip balms. The health benefits of VCO are second to none; ranging from speeding up body metabolic system and providing immunity against a horde of commonly prevalent diseases.
