The Science Of Coconut Oil…
The scientific name for coconut is “Cocos nucifera”.
Early explorers began calling these fruits “coco” meaning “monkey face” because they thought the three eyes on a hairy round object in a tree resembled the head of a monkey peering down at them from the palms. “Nucifera” means “nut-bearing.”
The Nutrition Of Coconut Oil…
Coconut is classified as a “functional food” due to the fact that it is rich in nutritional content & thus – health benefits.
