Coconut Oil is a colorless oil that is taken from the flesh of a coconut. Coconut oil is a tropical oil with many applications. It is extracted from copra (the dried meat, or kernel, of the coconut). Coconut oil constitutes seven percent of the total export income of the Philippines, the world's largest exporter of the product.
Coconut oil is also said to be a strong anti-viral. When a tablespoon is mixed with a shake or fruit smoothie, it has no flavor and can be quite effective in keeping you well during flu season when consumed in an 8 oz serving daily.
