Immune System

Protective maskHow? Coconut oil has antimicrobial lipids, Lauric acid, Capric Acid and Caprylic Acid.  All these acids have antifungal, antibactenerial and antiviral properties.  Our bodies convert lauric acid into monolaurin which is claimed to aid in fighting and eliminating harmful viruses and bacteria causing diseases such as herpes, influenza and even HIV.
When? Take 1 tablespoon of OVCO in the morning or before meals.
Where?  Keeps the liver and lymphatic system strong.
Why? Our first line of defense is our stomach acid.  It can usually get rid of harmful pathogens that we may have ingested from the air or from the food we eat. Should it fail, the the liver will step in as its main function is to get rid of toxins.  Since monolaurin is absorbed directly to the liver, it acts as a booster to help our liver destroy any toxins that may sometimes survive our stomach acid.

A true story

When I was staying in my mother-in-law's place just after marriage, she served us fresh coconut water as she has coconut trees growing in the backyard.  The white coconut flesh was soft, sweet, jelly like and so delicious.  I ate so much that I was too full to eat dinner. 

Come midnight, my stomach was growling so loudly, I thought I would wake up the whole household. Being a farm house, the toilet was outside and is a bucket system.  It was pitch black. With a torchlight to shine the way,  I had a fearful thought that  I would encounter snakes, flying bats, insects and creatures of the night.  As the cramps were getting stronger , I had no choice but to be brave.  

To make the story short,  I survived and vowed never to eat too much coconuts in one sitting. Unless of course if you want to detox....this could be one way of doing it.  Just make sure you have a brightly lit toilet that flushes.

My next topic of discussion which you may have guessed by now is, HOW TO DETOX SAFELY.
