Why does the oil have to be organic, pure, unrefined and virgin? 

Here is the deal. When any food product is refined it loses its nutritional benefits to a large degree. Any food product that is grown with the use of pesticides and chemicals in the soil will contain some of these harmful agents because it draws these from the soil in which it is grown. When ingested these chemicals will end up in your body. Chemicals in your body make the food you ingest hard to digest and introduce toxins that are harmful and prevent your body from absorbing the food properly. Toxins prevent the body from being able to heal itself as it was intended.

Refined coconut oils lose their natural flavor and scent in the refining process. Virgin Coconut Oils are able to keep their coconut fresh taste and smell. Refined coconut oils are frequently labeled as having a coconut flavor but the flavor is not of coconut but more of a burned and bitter taste and not coconut as it is naturally.

Drink one or two tablespoons every day and then increase the quantity, especially if you suffering from a serious ailment. You should start to see a noticeable difference.
