Benefits of Coconut Oil

One of Mother Nature’s best gifts to the human society is Coconut Oil. Starting from medicinal purposes to Household usage or as a beauty care product, Coconut Oil seems to have the answer to all the problems of life. In this article, we will be studying the varied uses of coconut oil – starting from its medicinal qualities to its use as a beauty care product to a domestic sanitizing and cleaning agent.

Coconut Oil – A potent antigen

Owing to its high lauric acid content, Coconut Oil acts as a powerful deterrent to a host of pathogenic organisms from viruses to bacteria and protozoa. The human body converts lauric acid into a complex chemical compound – monolaurin  , a monoglyceride that has the capacity to destroy lipid-coated viruses such as HIV and herpes, influenza, measles, gram-negative bacteria, and protozoa such as giardia lamblia .
