Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO)

Postby speed110 » Wed, 30 May 2007 11:03 pm

Hi, anyone got any knowledge or experience with Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO)?
I am being introduced to VCO which is claimed to have many benefits; including reducing cancer and heart disease risks, promotes weight loss, control diabetes and many other benefits. If anyone has any knowledge, please share on this forum.

I think you are mistaken this oil does not reduce the risk of cancer. It helps in case of obesity by maintaining cholesterol level. It can also fix digestive disorders. My doctor has advised me to use this oil in order to reduce my weight and I must say it is working. The fatty acids in this oil is converted to energy rather than stored as fats in the body. If you want this oil then you need to contact Canada Pharmacy; I got mine from there. You can use this oil for cooking or as moisturizers (it has a sweet smell)

VCO can help in weight loss?

Postby speed110 » Wed, 06 Jun 2007 12:43 am

Thank you bubbly2222 for the info. I was originally introduced to the VCO becos of my overweight problem. I just started taking it about a week ago ... too soon to see the results, I guess. Where is this Canadian Pharmacy? In Singapore? The 1 bottle I got cost me $25. It's a 250 ml bottle. Anyone knows if I can get it cheaper elsewhere ..? :)

As we have no problem with recommendations of business that have been used by our readers, we would appreciate it if you would just post the name of the shop and contact/location so our other readers can drop by or call for appointments/purchases. Otherwise we might think.........

I would take it that posting such information would make it more like it.. haha..

Anyway, my beautican is homebased and do not have a shop. Anyone who is interested can email her at jcpassion@singnet.com.sg ;-)

haha..... :roll:

there is a difference between a 3 party recommending something and a 1st party advertising.

And why does it not surprise me that your beautican :o is home based. Wonder where she/he gets their supplies from?

What is wrong with my beautican being homebased? In fact, i find some homebased services are better than those that have salons or shops.

Would anyone care to share more the benefit of the virgin coconut oil?
I saw the show in Channel News Asia recently, the Philippino beutician is recommending it for beauty care.
I wonder if it is really true, it is also said that many of the Philipino ladies used the product.

Thanks for sharing.

Cheers,
Cherry

NTUC Fairprice sells Virgin Coconut Oil at its branches at Bukit Timah Plaza and Thomson Plaza.

I'd be interested to know as well if anyone finds cold pressed or expeller pressed coconut oil.

yes, i have read alot about VCO
my aunt recommended she is a gp , she suffered from cancer but she because she did alot of research foods on cancer cells , she has been very careful with her selections of food, her cancer cells are under control
it is actually considered as a weight management product.

VCO is among the foods she encourages to use to cook, she uses it for frying, drizzling on salads and yes it can also be used for skin.

my aunt, myself and a few colleagues order organic VCO from Life Extension once a month,
http://www.lef.org/

there is also VCO selling at mustafa, but its not organic

According to this guy, it helps tremendously for clearing up your acne.
And please don't think that is a money-making site. It gives real info on how to get rid of acne and sells NOTHING. It's all free info.
