"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.
Does not contribute to atherosclerosis or heart disease.
Does not contribute to weight problems.

What Coconut Oil DOES Do:

Reduces risk of cancer and other degenerative conditions.
Helps prevent bacterial, viral, and fungal (including yeast) infections.
Supports immune system function.
Helps control diabetes.
Provides an immediate source of energy.
Supports healthy metabolic function.
Improves digestion and nutrient absorption.
Supplies important nutrients necessary for good health.
Supplies fewer calories than other fats.
Promotes weight loss.
Helps prevent osteoporosis.

Is highly resistant to spoilage (long shelf life).
Is heat resistant (the healthiest oil for cooking).
Helps keep skin soft and smooth.
Helps prevent premature aging and wrinkling of the skin.

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...
