Coconut oil AND breastfeeding. Nature's supreme dietary oil AND nature's impeccable food. Creation's super fat AND creation's super food. Yup! BOTH incredibly nutritious.
Breast milk was designed to provide all the nourishment a newborn will ever need early on in life.
What other natural foods do you know of exist and contain a flawless combination of vitamins, minerals, fats and proteins for optimum growth and development? If you know one, please share it with me.
Now what kind of food, or oil in this case, do you think would come out from The Tree of Life? The Oil of Life, exactly! The coconut palm has, is, and will always be called the tree of life because of its many uses and benefits to mankind. And at the forefront of this greatness is coconut oil.
A major component of mother's milk AND coconut oil is medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA), primarily lauric acid. In fact, the proportion of lauric acid to other MCFAs in coconut oil is identical to that of breast milk.
Monolaurin, the monoglyceride of lauric acid, is the most dynamic antimicrobial found in coconut oil. It's so potent that it can slaughter lipid-coated microorganisms like:
|LIPID-COATED VIRUSES||LIPID-COATED BACTERIA|
|Human immuno deficiency virus (HIV-1)||Gram-positive bacilli|
|Hepatitis C virus||Helicobacter pylori|
|Herpes simplex virus (HSV-1,2)||Staphylococcus aureus|
|Cytomegalovirus||Streptococci A, B, F and G|
|Epstein-Barr virus||Listeria monocytogenes|
|Measles virus (rubeola)||Hemophilus influenzae|
|Leukemia virus||Chlamydia pneumoniae|
It can take some time to present the striking resemblance. But doesn't it at least leave your mouth slightly open when reminded of just some of the similarities between coconut oil and breast milk?
It's unfortunate when you consider the decades-long wicked and malicious criticisms of the powers that be against highly-saturated coconut oil, whose only fault really is it happens to be an ultra tough competition.
