Wonders of the VCO

Posted by Sandi | 3:35 PM

During this time, accused of coconut oil as a "troublemaker" all sorts of diseases. Of elevated blood cholesterol, to increase the fat in the body. However, with Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO), charge it sank. To what extent are the benefits of VCO to health?
Bad image of palm oil to health has adhered for many years at the head of every man. Therefore, the necessary effort to break the myth. "Coconut oil has long been considered to not be consumed as a cooking oil, especially as pharmacitical product," explained Dr. AH. Bambang Setiaji, M. Sc, chemist and lecturer at the F-MIPA Universitas Gajah Mada University, Yogyakarta.
According to Bambang, the assumption of "wrong" this is the part of developed countries that incessant provocation to market oil from other materials, such as corn and soybeans, the result of their production. "Actually," continued Bambang, "Until now the theory that says coconut oil contains high cholesterol, have never been proven. Furthermore, for pure coconut oil."

Expensive drugs The image of palm oil growing up, after 2002, the United States who used to popularize the benefits of vigorous non-oil cooking oil, began to lift the image of this oil. This was stated by Prof.. Jon Kabara, and pharmacologist Professor from Michigan State University, as the central agricultural research there.
Now, in America, coconut oil used as medicine coronary heart disease and other degenerative diseases that exist today. "Included for energy enhancer for premature infants who can not drink milk. There Cocos oilum known, "said the man origin Waterford, Central Java.
According to Bambang, the United Coconut oil is used as a very expensive drug. Packaging in the form of gelatin capsules, or wrapped like fish oil. "A capsules cost about 8 U.S. dollars. The Americans buy pure coconut oil from the Philippines. Yet Indonesia is known as the largest coconut producer in the world. Why do not we develop it?"

Without Heating 
Actually, Bambang has started to take this virgin coconut oil research since 1979 in the laboratory F-MIPA UGM. Unfortunately, the bad image of palm oil had been so strongly embedded in Indonesia. New year 2003, Bambang again be able to continue penelitannya and funded by the Local Government of Yogyakarta.
"I've always made of pure coconut oil without heating process. Originally wanted to create a clear coconut oil, not rancid and durable," he said. Just so you know, coconut oil is produced through the heating process, as practiced by traditional societies and oil klentik known, was eventually contain cholesterol. In addition, the heating process can also cause smell and taste rancid. That happened because the anti-oxidants and other vitamins in coconut lost or damaged by the heating process.
Before Bambang managed to produce virgin coconut oil, he had to first conduct various experiments. "Initially there was the use of enzymes, microbes, vinegar, and others. There are so many methods I use to make coconut oil is not rancid. However, a more practical now virgin coconut oil can be produced using only the inducement of oil."
That is, the light of Bambang, who comes from coconut milk juice of grated coconut which has been given a 'teaser' pure coconut oil he produces from the laboratory. Then stirred and aged for 4-5 hours. After that virgin coconut oil will separate itself from the dregs of oil and water.
"After the provocation, the result will be divided into three parts. At the top, pure coconut oil, the middle part is the bottom dregs of oil and water." If the oil quality pancingannya bad, better results can be rancid.

Coconut oil is located at the top and is then separated into pure coconut oil or virgin coconut oil (VCO) which has many properties for health. One old coconuts virgin coconut oil can produce as many as 120 ml. According to the research, Bambang, if using young coconut, VCO will not be formed.
Bambang asserted, is different from the oil VCO klentik. "Palm oil is processed through the heating so that the content of his koleat and palmitate most widely so that it can increase blood cholesterol levels. Coconut oil used cooking even if it is so old and aged, a lot of free radicals and should not be consumed again. This information should be disseminated in the community, "said Bambang.

Similar Mother's Milk
As a researcher VCO, new in 2004 Bambang researching the health benefits of VCO. He also found that the compounds contained in this VCO was the same as those contained in Mother's Milk (ASI).
"VCO contains lauric acid as much as 48%. Meanwhile, Mother Milk, containing only 38%," explained the master of science graduates majoring in chemistry at Manchester University, England. Actually, said Bambang, lauric acid is not too much needed human body. However, "Mother's Millk" function, right, as a means of protecting the baby from the attack of various diseases. Breastfed baby will become more immune to diseases and more healthy body condition. Thus, for adults who consume VCO contains lauric acid as much as 48 %, certainly very good, right? "
Lauric acid is based on research conducted Bambang can turn off the virus that causes various diseases, ranging from common cold to HIV / AIDS. Includes a variety of degenerative diseases such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, and hepatitis. Even long been famous for palm oil may discolor hair and smooth delivery. "People who fall off hair or balding VCO can eat regularly."
Parents from the old days had been suggested that pregnant women drank coconut milk to the baby clean and smooth delivery. "It's not just a myth. And there is no taboo to pregnant women to menginsumsi VCO. Even from the study if the VCO can whiten your teeth often used to gargle," Bambang said that recovery from coronary heart disease after two years VCO drink regularly.
 
No Make Fat
VCO also has other features, that does not make fat people who eat them. "Hence this VCO can also be used as a diet drug to help. Because lauric acid can not be deposited as body fat, but easily removed from the body. Consuming VCO will make the cycle in the liver to be easily digested."
For people with diabetes, very good VCO consumed, easily digested so that the insulin because the body does not have a lot to get out and could be accommodated by the pancreas. Thus, insulin can actually be used to regulate blood sugar.
VCO can also create a bowel movement to be smooth because the oil flowed digestive tract, so that the VCO can also cure disease or hemorrhoids haemorrhoid. "The function of VCO is almost identical with vitamin C which will be out of the body along with a bowel movement," says this father of two sons.
However, Bambang warned, "If the VCO is too much to drink, the oil content in the digestive tract into lots and will cause diarrhea. But it will not become dehydrated or lack of bodily fluids." 

Honey mixed 
VCO should be taken at 3-4 tablespoons per day for adults and enough teaspoon 1-2 times per day for children. "To avoid feeling nauseated during swallowing VCO, can be mixed with honey or syrup. It will not affect the content of its VCO-kok," Bambang suggestions.
Eating VCO-shaped capsule, continued Bambang, are actually more difficult. "For a number of tablespoons of VCO is approximately 12-15 cc. Meanwhile, a capsule containing only 1 cc alone VCO. If constrained 2 cc, the size of the capsule will become very large and increasingly difficult to swallow," Bambang light.
Later, after the VCO is introduced as a product pharmaticical, Bambang also started researching the content of VCO-based formula to a range of beauty products, like body lotion, bath soap, face soap, facial cream, shampoo, lipstick, and massage oils. "It turns out from research results, VCO can refine and rejuvenate the skin, eliminating black spots, and strengthen skin tissue." 

Until now the research is still underway to find out more about the benefits of VCO to health. (Source Miracle of VCO, Bambang Setiadji)

Colecteral cancer ranked fourth in the majority of cancer incidence and cause of cancer deaths worldwide. In 1996 the estimated 875 000 cases occurred. The mortality rate caused by this cancer is estimated to continue to increase, in most cases in developed countries and urban areas in developing countries (American Institute for Cancer Research, 1997)

But fears that we can prevent. It turns out the simplicity behind bananas, there are some very big benefits. One of them has the potential to prevent cancer bananas colecteral it. To prevent it simply by eating two medium-size bananas and drinking milk every day. Why do bananas have the potential to prevent cancer? Because the banana is the source of vitamin B6 and folate are very good, plus fiber good enough, and bananas contain this vitamin more than other fruits commonly consumed, in addition, the banana is also known as one of the fruits that can be launched bowel movement (lack of fiber is still the only candidate mentioned that are suspected to cause cancer colocteral)

Eat two bananas everyday, meets the needs of vitamin B6, a medium-size bananas weigh 120gr containing 0.7 mg of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 also supports the availability of energy for the brain to everyday activities.
In addition to these benefits of banana is also good eaten by patients with anemia because bananas contain high iron. Even for patients with liver disease, also recommended to consume two bananas daitambah 1 tablespoon honey, will memb. Banana milk mixed into a cure for intestinal diseases, stomachache, and colic to neutralize stomach acid. Bananas are also recommended for pregnant women consumed because they contain folic acid, which is easily absorbed by the fetus through the uterus.
So there's nothing wrong if we colocteral prevent cancer or other diseases by consuming two bananas and milk every day.

Not many people know the health benefits behind the delicious pineapple. In fact, not rare fruit that scales are accused of whiteness so no wonder if many women are unwilling to consume fruits on this one. In fact, recent research shows the pineapple with a powerful antioxidant and fiitokimia overcome premature aging, hemorrhoids, cancer, heart attacks and stress prevention.

Pineapple contains vitamin A and vitamin C. Both these vitamins are known to have activity as antiocsidan able to protect the body from various attacks of disease, including cancer, coronary heart disease, and premature aging.

Activism played oxidant activity of vitamin C and A could inhibit the oxidation rate of molecular targets, which in turn may stop the chain reaction formation of free radicals in the body believed to be the mastermind, or provocateurs of various diseases.

Results of scientific research shows the content of phenolic compounds such as myricetin anatar, quercitin, tyramine, ferulic acid in pineapple fruit can reduce free radical chain reactions in the body, which in turn can reduce the occurrence of cancer. Various natural antioxidants are believed to be a very powerful free radicals that did not stop hanging around looking for unsaturated fatty acids in the cell.

The same is done antioxidant vitamin-and beta-carbonic acid that can stabilize the carotenoid-lens cell membrane (eye) and keeping the concentration of glutathione. Thus, can prevent the oxidation of lipids in cell membrane so that we can avoid the lens of a cataract.

Existing bromelain in pineapple is believed to accelerate wound healing and the magnitude of the operation on joint pain. For hemorrhoid sufferers are encouraged to consume 4-5 times daily pineapple because bromelinnya can stop the bleeding and can destroy the fibers contained in defecating. 

Serotonin, in addition to a role, preventing cancer can also cause a phylogenetic banish stress is a neurotransmitter that plays a role in connecting the primitive and brain food.

With diligent eating pineapple, the body has an opportunity to stay young and avoid diseases associated with premature aging such as stress, cancer and coronary heart disease.

Do Not Forget Vitamin

Posted by Sandi | 3:23 PM

There are many people who assume that vitamin efficacious for relieving tired or exhausted, and also for the fattening and nutritious healthy body. Is this true?.
First we must know first what vitamins, what properties, what kind, and others.
Vitamins are actually organic substances the body needs in very small quantities. These substances are needed for growth and maintenance of the body. These substances can not be manufactured by the body, so it should be there at the foods we eat. There are also vitamins that are made in the body rather than by a body such as vitamins B and vitamins K.
Normal body can store enough vitamin supply for 4 -12 months time. So if someone does not take vitamins for that period, there will be no effect nothing towards their health. And if we already consume enough nutritious food, it is no longer appropriate when we take drugs that contain vitamins. Except when our bodies in certain circumstances, such as intestinal disease (diarrhea), at the time of pregnancy, on children's growth period and at other infectious diseases. Because at the moment supply of vitamins in our body decreases.
Vitamins are divided into two major categories, the water-soluble vitamins (Vit B1, B2, B6, nicotinamide, B12 and Vit C) and oil-soluble vitamins (Vit A, D, E and K). If we consume too many vitamins, the vitamins are soluble in water is wasted through the urine (urine), while vitamin that is not soluble in water will continue to collect in the body which over time will lead to unfavorable effects on the body. For example the use of excessive vitamin A can cause changes in the bones, swelling under the skin and itching. Use of excessive vitamin D can cause calcium and phosphate mobilization from the skeleton, and calcium deposition of fatty tissue as blood vessels and heart.
Therefore advisable not to eat vitamin vain if they are not necessary. If foods contain enough vitamin the body needs a variety, so no longer need to waste money to buy vitamin pills or tablets.

Beta Karoten and Cancer

Posted by Sandi | 4:18 PM


Beta carotene is an antioxidant, a pro-vitamin that the body converts into vitamin A, and are mostly found in vegetables, yellow, red and dark green. Beta carotene is now available in supplement form and often in high doses. Because the antioxidant properties, previously believed that high doses of beta carotene supplements may help reduce the risk of cancer.
 
Various studies to date have been carried out to assess the benefits of beta carotene supplementation on the incidence of cancer. The expectation is the provision of beta carotene can help reduce the risk of cancer. But whether this is true? A meta-analysis studies (studies that examine the various studies) recently published in International Journal of Cancer earlier this year revealed a new fact. The study assesses nine previous studies and then summed to obtain a conclusion.
 
The result, overall beta-carotene supplements was not beneficial in reducing the risk of cancers, including pancreatic cancer, colon / colorectal, prostate, breast, skin (melanoma and non-melanoma). However, beta carotene supelementasi of 20-30 mg / day increased the risk of lung cancer by 16% and 34% of gastric cancer. For more realistic impact on the population of smokers and asbestos workers.
 
Finally, the study concluded that beta carotene supplements did not provide benefit in reducing the risk of cancer and even increase your risk of lung and stomach cancer. Therefore, I do not recommend taking supplements of beta-carotene for cancer prevention purposes.
