Saya memang amalkan makan minyak kelapa dara (VCO) ni sejak mengandung anak pertama sampailah sekarang. kalo waktu pregnant khasiatnya untuk mudahkan bersalin. Saya penah mengesyorkan seorang kawan saya untuk ambil VCO untuk mudahkan bersalin, Alhamdulillah dengan izin Allah berkesan. Tapi tak berkesan untuk saya sebab dua-dua anak saya dilahirkan secara c-section. hehehehe.
Kelebihan VCO ni saya petik dari satu artikel:-
The unique composition of human breast milk fat includes the fatty acids, lauric acid and capric acid, which have potent antimicrobial properties. These fatty acids offer the nursing infant protection from viruses such as herpes and HIV, protozoa such as giardia lamblia, and bacteria such as chlamydia and heliocobater.
A study published in 1998 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has shown that lactating mothers who eat coconut oil and other coconut products, have significantly increased levels of lauric acid and capric acid in their breast milk. Thus, the milk supply has increased amounts of the protective antimicrobials , which will give even greater protection to the nursing infant.
Pregnant females store fat to assure successful lactation. Any lauric acid and capric acid in the diet becomes part of the adipose stores. The milk fat of a lactating mother is made up of these stores as well as her current diet. If her diet doesn´ t contain lauric acid, then generally her milk fat will contain around 3 lauric acid and round 1 capric acid.
When a lactating woman adds foods rich in lauric acid to her diet, the amount of lauric acid available in her breastmilk increases substantially to levels three times the original level and nearly double the amount of capric acid. In countries where coconut oil is a diet staple, levels of lauric acid in the mother´ s milk can be as high as 21 and capric acid can be as high as 6 giving her infant even more protection against viruses, bacteria, and protozoa.
Subhanallah... hebatnya anugerah Allah.
Kalo dulu kemang tekak nak telan minyak ni, sekarang dah senang dah ada yang dibuat dalam bentuk soft gel i.e HPA and Halagel. Cuba lah... :)
