"If there was an oil you could use for your daily cooking needs that helped protect you from heart disease, cancer, and other degenerative conditions, improved your digestion, strengthened your immune system, and helped you lose excess weight, would you be interested? This is what coconut oil can do for you.

What Coconut Oil DOES NOT Do:

Does not increase blood cholesterol level.
Does not promote platelet stickiness or blood clot formation.

We love it and cook almost exclusively with coconut oil - so healthy and yummy. It's also excellent to use on your skin.

Coconut oil is excellent. We buy it at the food co-op here in the states. Is it available in San Pedro, and if so, where?

Thank you!

I saw it today at Super Buy on back street. Probably is in most of the larger super markets. It did cost quite a bit more than the regular cooking oil though.

Thanks for the info! Same here in the states -- it's pricy. Glad to know it's available there. Seems like with all the coconut palms there, it would be an excellent local business, and then be reasonably priced locally. Maybe eventually...
