LUKE COUTINHO shares some of the amazing health benefits of the humble coconut.

Mother Nature is incredibly generous in the way she provides – offering a bounty of fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrients to nourish your body so you can enjoy a long healthy life.

One fruit in particular – the coconut – is so abundant in its healing properties it’s referred to as ‘the tree of life’. And before World War II, people living in island countries, like the Philippines, consumed a diet that consisted mainly of rice, root crops, vegetables and an abundance of the ultra-healing superfood, the coconut.

The coconut is a ‘functional food, rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber – the essential nutritional building blocks for perfect health.

For generations, island people considered it ‘the cure for all illness’ and consumed the meat, milk and oil of the coconut daily. Although this diet was high in saturated fat, western conditions like diabetes, cancer and heart disease were virtually unheard of.

Filipinos and islanders were instead rewarded with a lovely youthful complexion, soft wrinkle-free skin, almost no skin cancer – even with excessive exposure to year round sun – and abundant good health.

Coconut oil in particular has been shown to protect you from viral and bacterial infections, cancer, thyroid, brain and heart problems; plus it beautifies your skin, and even burns fat!

Coconut oil – a saturated fat – is chock-full of health-promoting properties, and is in no way responsible for high cholesterol, obesity, heart disease and the bad effects you’ve been led to believe.

Finally, modern medicine and science are starting to realize this fundamental truth, and it’s been a long time coming. But sadly not before heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity and a whole host of other catastrophic diseases have reached epidemic proportions!

Before World War II, the miracle-healing coconut had been used to help alleviate:

Coughs, constipation, malnutrition, skin infections, toothaches, earaches, flu, Alzheimers, dementia, Parkinsons, fat loss, skin and hair, and more!
