COCONUT OIL AS BRAIN FOOD , TERMINALIA ARJUNA BARK THE AYURVEDA HEART TONIC , SHORT CHAIN FATTY ACIDS OF NON-HYDROGENATED COCONUT OILS , FALSE PROPAGANDA BY FOREIGN GM SEED COOKING OIL MANUFACTURERS – CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL
Before India got independence heart attack , kidney problems and Alzhiemers disease was unknown in Kerala. Today Kerala is the head quarters of these killer diseases, as we consume bad for health GM seed vegetable oils..
In olden days , people of Kerala used VIRGIN coconut oils for cooking. Almost all the houses, including my own , dried their own coconuts in the back yard and took the copra to the nearby crusher mill to extract fresh oil. Those days ready made powdered atta wheat was NOT available in the shops. So every nearby mill has a motorized crusher and grinder. Fresh coconut oil made food very tasty and healthy.
With Independence , we had “lobbied up” corrupt ministers who imported vegetable oils from abroad. They joined the false Western propaganda that Coconut oil is bad for the heart. Deliberately these foreign laboratories used HYDROGENATED coconut oils for their tests, to convince people with their lies. .
Coconut oil is hydrogenated so that the freezing point is raised, and the oil does NOT freeze on a cool day of less than 24 deg centigrade. In Kerala we all know that in the months of Dec and Jan when morning temperatures fall less than 24 deg centigrade , we had to put a spoon into the coconut oil bottle , to scoop out the white solidified oil. In winter we stored our oil in wide mouth bottles, exactly for this.
Today if you suspect the virgin coconut oil you buy in the supermarket, just put the bottle horizontally in the freezer to solidify it , and then place it a warm place vertically to melt the oil with a thermometer inserted. It the oil takes a high 38 deg centigrade of heat to UN freeze it means the oil is hydrogenated.
In the high heat of Indian cooking of >250 deg Centigrade fancy oils like Canola, Olive , Corn, Safflower, Sunflower , Soya etc , gets unstable with free radicals abuzz from pulverised molecules and become carcinogenic. In India we do NOT stir fry our foods at low heat.
“Virgin" coconut oil is organic and unrefined with NIL additives . It is undeodorized, unhardened coconut oil, with high levels of natural anti-oxidants , NIL trans fats . Coconut oil can be used to deep fry because it is a stable oil that can withstand high temperature cooking.
Coconut oil is a source of short-chain fatty acids which are easier to digest than long-chain acids of other cooking vegetable oils. Short-chain fatty acids help to strengthen and develop cell membranes while long-chain acids of oils of Canola, Olive, Sunflower etc increase risks of blood clots and cancer. Our bodies metabolize short-chain fats differently than long-chain ones. The short-chain fats of fresh coconut oil are NOT associated with cardiovascular problems in the same way as the long-chain ones are.
All health studies on coconut oils have been done on hydrogenated oils DELIBERATELY , so that the West can have a immoral and foul trade advantage with their own GM Canola, Sunflower and Olive oils.
Health benefits of coconut oil-
Causes weight loss
Reduces diabetes/regulate blood sugar
Increases bone and dental health by improving calcium absorption
Fights inflammation and free radicals with its ferulic and p-coumaric acid components
Decreases risk of heart disease
Fights infections due to the lauric acid content
What makes coconut oil so different from other saturated fats?
It's all about the molecular structure.
All fats are made of fatty acids which are made up of long carbon chains with hydrogen atoms attached. Different types of fats can be classified by their level of “saturation” of hydrogen. A saturated fat has no possibility to attract more hydrogen atoms and is therefore very stable.
A polyunsaturated fat has many free spaces for hydrogen atoms and is therefore reactive and not a stable structure and a monounsaturated fat has only one available space for hydrogen, making it relatively stable. Coconut oil is a saturated fat, which can be safely heated to high temperatures.
Unlike saturated fats from animal sources, coconut oil does not raise cholesterol levels in the body or contribute to cardiovascular disease. In fact, it does the opposite. It can effectively lower LDL cholesterol and has a protective effect on the arteries. It does this because of the size of its molecule.
There are short chain fatty acids (SCFAs), medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) or long chain fatty acids (LCFAs). The size of the fatty acid is extremely important as the body metabolizes the fatty acids differently according to their size. Coconut oil is comprised of SCFAs and MCFAs.
It's the long chain fatty acids that lead to weight gain, raised cholesterol levels, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease and put a strain on the liver, pancreas and digestive tract. Short and Medium chain fatty acids on the other hand lower the risk of these conditions.
The long chain fatty acids are also known as long chain triglycerides (LCTs) and the body needs to package them with carrier proteins requiring special enzymes to effectively metabolize them.
Virgin coconut oil, which has not been chemically treated, is a VERY good for health, as it contains medium-chain triglycerides. The medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) found in coconut oil are smaller and can easily cross cell membranes without the need for the special enzymes or carrier proteins.
MCTs go straight to the liver where they are converted to energy that the body can use rather than being stored as fat. The MCTs don't even need bile or pancreatic enzymes to be used by the body and are therefore perfect for those who have no gallbladder.
Coconut oil, like mother's milk, is rich in lauric acid. Once inside our bodies, lauric acid gets converted to monolaurin, which has powerful anti-viral, anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties and does not harm our natural defenses, like medicines can.
Coconut oil really is a miracle food. It stabilizes blood sugar levels, helps balance hormones, stimulates thyroid function leading to increased metabolism and fat burning, reduces stress on the liver and pancreas and boosts the cellular healing processs of the body by destroying dangerous microbes and enhancing tissue repair, hence its ability to aid the healing if skin wounds, cuts, burns and bruizes. As it is so easy to metabolize, it effectively boosts our energy levels.
Coconut oil is the perfect anti-aging treatment keeping the skin soft and supple and the connective tissue strong. It has an antioxidant effect which protects the skin from free radical damage and helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Coconut oil can effectively treat dandruff and dry scalp.
India is the biggest importer of edible oil on this planet . The only reason is kickbacks for politicians and political parties. This black money MUST be halted and the corrupt guilty punished. Indians must start using "virgin" coconut oil for cooking.
It is good for the heart and for general health. Patients in Alzheimer in USA drink table spoons of coconut oil daily, neat, as a health tonic.
The Caprylic Acid inherent in coconut oil destroys Candida yeast . This acid basically "pokes holes" in the Candida yeast cell wall, causing it to die.
The illegal assets of Kerala Ministers who were bribed by the Palm oil lobby must be siezed. They made millions in way of bribes.
Doctors and cardiologists also agreed with them, stating that Coconut oil has very high saturated fat content ( 92%) and hence it is bad --LDL cholesterol BLAH BLAH.

In India Hindus essentially offer Coconut to the gods in temples and pujas , due to its inherent goodness.
Virgin Coconut oil helps prevent modern diseases like Crohns disease, fatty liver disease , kidney diseases , Parkinsons , high BP and cholesterol , Alzheimer’s , obesity, fungi , viral diseases , diabetes , breast cancers , PMS syndrome etc.
Now let me talk about Arjuna tree bark.
First watch this video below.
The use of Arjuna tree bark as a heart tonic is explained by the father of Medicine Charaka 4200 BC in his text . Charaka & Sushruta who wrote the Ashtanga Sangraha and the Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita.

Arjuna tree is mentioned in the Rig Veda of 5000 BC. (It has nothing to do with Arjuna of Mahabharata) . (R.V.1/122/5). Hindu mythology documented that this tree has its origin when lord Indra killed a demon by name Vritra.
The Arjuna tree is about 25 metres tall and forms a wide canopy . It has a life span of more than 600 years. It blooms pale yellow flowers between March and June.
It has 4 cm fibrous woody fruit, divided into five wings, appears between September and November. The Antheraea paphia moth likes to feed on its leaves which produces the tassar silk .
It is easy to identify with its outer grey bark stiff flaking off in pieces. Inner bark is thick flesh colored when cut, exuding red resin. Arjun yields up to 50 kg dry bark chips on a three year cycle without damaging the tree.
The bark of the tree is used in Ayurvedic medicines. The bark contains usually a large quantity of tannin and calcium. It also contains good quantities of aluminum, sodium, magnesium, zinc and copper.
Arjun Bark decoction prevents build up deposits , and also dissolves the existing deposits in the arteries. Hence it reverses hardening of the arteries. It had blood lipid lowering activity and thins the blood. It is good for alleviating “hritshool” (angina) and helps maintain cholesterol levels due to lipid lowering effects. The bark enhances heart muscle tone and prevents heart palpitations.
The bark is used to prevent liver cirrhosis and liver enlargement.
The bark is used to treat STD and gonorrhoea . It is used for treatment of wounds, ulcers, scorpion bites and bleeding piles , applied topically.
It is useful for abdominal disorders such as diarrhea
It pulverizes the calculi stones in urinary tract and kidneys and flushed it out. It is good for bile duct disorders.
The bark is used to prevent early ejaculation and impotence .
It prevents accumulation of fluids, thereby reduces edema.
Arjuna leaves are used to cover ulcers & sores externally, while leaf juice is used for curing earache (Otalgia).
Arjuna bark powder metabolizes cellular energy
The whole tree is so rich on calcium that even the soil it grows on becomes rich on this element too. The bark composition is 34% Calcium Carbonate. Calcium carbonate also is used as an antacid to relieve heartburn, acid indigestion, and upset stomach
The powder of the bark is useful in cleaning teeth.
There is a 1000 year old Arjuna tree in the Melpattu tribal village in Jawadhu Hills the circumference of the trunk of the tree alone is around 45 feet. This tree is called Neer Marithu in Malayalam.
The best way to use the bark is to pound it till it releases a butter juice. This juice can be mixed with 2 teaspoonfuls of Amla juice and some honey and consumed regularly.
In about a litre of water put 2 teaspoonfuls of splintered bark. Bring it to boil and then lower the flame to let it simmer till the water becomes 500-600 ml (about half). Let it cool. Filter it. Drink about 200-250 ml in the morning and evening. You can prepare a larger quantity to store it for 2-3 days. Do NOT store it in plastic bottles.
Its stem bark is antioxidant , anti-inflammatory, anti-pyretic, anti-bacterial , anti-viral, anti-mutagenic and as an astringent.
No wonder Rig Veda praised this tree 7000 years ago.
India had the widest variety of organic medicinal herbs and plants on this planet. After the white Christian invader got their hands on our ancient texts, they patented all this knowledge in their names.
Grace and peace!
Certain herbs which they could never procure outside India , they developed inorganic cures, with side effects galore..
Today in USA , the pharma lobby ensures that parents are slapped with criminal charges and jailed ( for child neglect ) if they do NOT use western allopathic medicines on their own children .
So the big brother owned pharma lobby cares for your own children and loves them more than you .
I am touched by such abundant -nay extravagant altruism , so I must cry.
Grace and peace!
