Using Coconut Oil To Improve Immunity, Hair, Skin Quality


coconut-oil

In my few years as a practicing nutritionist with a government establishment, I am yet to find another healthy food item that has been multi-effective in nature other than Coconut oil. It was just like yesterday when the nutrition department of the establishment I work with kick started the inclusion of coconut oil into the diets of children with special needs as available in our centre. Improved immunity to illnesses particularly among susceptible group was seen with a reduction in the frequency of seizures among the children particularly the non ambulatory ones (Bed bound).

Let me make it clear, when I say coconut oil, I am not by any indication referring to the common “Adi agbon” (Yoruba); which is usually the oil obtained from deteriorated, deteriorating or rotten coconuts. This is the type used by our mothers as body and hair cream. In their time, even up till now, “Adi agbon” has remained an effective solution to many external beauty concerns that we are faced with.

Having said that, Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil; the one I am actually referring to is clearly a super oil that is effective both for external and internal treatment. It is made from mature coconuts (edible) as against the “Adi agbon” type which is made from deteriorating coconuts and as such is inedible and has limited health benefits. In the reality of some Nigerians despising against this oil, many foreigners and foreign based Nigerians and Africans are embracing the use as its benefits are without limit. See the top three benefits.
