Earlier this year, we shipped out 53 cartons of coconut oil to Lesotho to help combat malnutrition in children. In August, we flew out to Lesotho to be a part of World Vision's nutrition program to hand out pouches of Medella Coconut Cooking Oil and nutrition packs to families in Lesotho.
Why coconut oil?
Apart from helping to fight various diseases (it’s even being tested as a cure for HIV, Alzheimer’s, and several cancers), coconut oil also increases the amount of essential nutrients and vitamins that we absorb from what we eat. And it boosts the immune system, which is vital in places where even minor diseases can kill or cripple due to a lack of available healthcare. In fact, more than 1500 studies have shown that coconut oil is one of the healthiest foods on Earth – with benefits and uses that go far beyond what most people know about.
Coconut oil is nature’s richest source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) – also found in mothers’ milk – which dramatically reverse malabsorption of nutrients and cause rapid, well-documented improvements in overall health as a result.
