Coconut Oil - Certified Organic Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions
Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions Wet-milled Traditionally Made Coconut Oil How We Discovered this Unique Coconut Oil When I first read about the wonderful benefits of coconut oil, I asked my wife Marianita, who grew up on a coconut plantation in the Philippines, if there was a more natural way to extract the oil from the coconut, so that we didn’t have to buy the refined coconut oils found in all the stores in the Philippines. She said there was a method the older generation used to extract the oil by grating the fresh coconut, extracting the coconut milk, and then letting the coconut milk stand in a covered container for about 24 hours. Before long we had businesses contacting us asking how to order it in bulk. Today, more than 10 years later, there are other companies now selling coconut oil again in the US, most of them mass-produced by machines. Brian Shilhavy, Founder, Tropical Traditions, Inc.

That is because these types of juices, freshly made, are rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and trace minerals which help to alkalize and normalize the bodily processes which speeds recovery. Fresh juices are also easily assimilated into the bloodstream without putting a strain on the digestive organs. Mineral alkalizing broths are also used for their huge amounts of highly absorbable bioavailable minerals. See Potassium Broth recipe. Why juice and not just eat raw foods instead? Is Fasting Safe?
