I AM not lifting my chair but I say VCO is perfect for health and beauty maintenance. I’m not a business woman by profession, in fact I have very poor skills in sales and I don’t have the charm to sweet talk a person into buying a product. That said, I’m not surprised PR firms won’t hire me. However, my mother was able to persuade me to sell VCO (Virgin Coconut Oil) which is manufactured by a Chinese biochemist and a good friend of our family.
As the country continues to face the dreadful oil price hike and rice shortage, our biochemist friend has every reason to raise the price of his VCO goods. But he did not. That’s why I’m still offering my 250 ml VCO at P130 and each VCO bar at P100. On the other hand, multinational companies that order from him in bulk have increased by P10 to P15.
You might think that this is all about business. Not so. I just hope I can encourage men and women alike to use VCO because of its wonderful benefits. Aside from being a yummy beverage and dessert, coconut contributes to our total well being.
Using coconut oil regularly creates gradual improvement on your skin’s tone and texture. By applying it religiously on your face, neck, arms and legs, you strengthen the skin and underlying tissues on these areas. Coconut oil also promotes speedy healing of wounds, cuts and insect bites. As a matter of fact, it’s what I use on my daughter every time she has insect bites. You don’t have to wait long for the red mark to disappear. What’s more, coconut oil proves to be helpful in fending off invading germs that cause infections and illness.
Aside from its topical application, VCO can also be taken into the body. Daily consumption of VCO will reduce the risk of heart disease. People who experience discomfort due to their digestive system’s irregularity are advised to take a spoonful of VCO before every meal. You have the assurance that it will normalize that tummy of yours.
Three and a half tablespoons of VCO is the general recommendation for average-sized adults but if you want to have more, help yourself. There’s not a recorded case of VCO overdose so you can take as much as you like. It’s just like having your favorite fruit. Others mix their VCO with their vegetable or salad.
If you want to experience the wonders and magic of VCO, head to the nearest drugstore or health section of a mall. But before you pick up that bottle, check out its label for the line that says it has passed the Halal Certifying Board of the Muslims. By being Halal certified, the product is rest assured permissible since harmful ingredients are nonexistent. See, the Muslims are very cautious. They only take in what is proven pure and that is what makes them admirable. A VCO in the market that is not Halal certified isn’t made from 100% coconut oil. It has incorporated additives which do not guarantee the benefits only a genuine VCO bottle can offer.
