Coconuts; Not just monkey business

Natural Lifestyle Blog

In some countries on our remarkable planet, grows a wonderful nut, which doesn’t only attract monkeys. Some of us might have seen the special way in which the agile little fingers of diligent monkeys , skillfully twist these “nuts” from the palms. The unique silhouette of the tree it harbors, is one of the typical characteristics of a tropical climate. Which extraordinary “nut “ are we talking about?

The coconut – one of the truly most remarkable and wanted fruits on earth!
However, competition is at hand! The nut loving monkeys must be aware of another lover of these nutty fruits. It is the coconut crab. This little villain not only secretly hides in burrows during the night, but also climbs and hides in palms and bushes. It does not only feast on the nutritious fruit of the coconut, but it certainly can use the nutshell of the nut as well; these coconut crabs are hilariously spotted here and there with a little coconut shell house on their backs. So, all kinds of animals are eager to hunt for the coconut. But what about humans? How do humans eagerly benefit from this nut as well?

Benefits of coconuts

People in Indonesia claim that the benefits of the coconut can be compared with the amount of the days in a year. In the Philippines people have a common expression; “The man who plants a coconut tree, will plant clothing, food, drinks, a house for himself and a heritage for his children.”
This saying is not exaggerated! It offers not only food, or a drink, but so much more! The coconut can supply all of the above; and we even haven’t mentioned the wonderful coconut oil yet.

But what is so special about coconut oil? Or maybe you can ask yourself another couple of questions. Can your breath use some refreshment? Is a burned skin bothering you? Or your hair is split from dryness? Do you have extremely dry skin? Are you fed up with the stretch marks on your skin or the cellulite? It’s a well known argument that coconut oil can help you deal with all of these beauty problems and it might be the only item you’d like to have in your bathroom closet from now on. Or maybe not…
