Coconut Oil, fractionated
What is Fractionated Coconut Oil?
As the name implies, Fractionated coconut oil is a fraction of the coconut oil from which almost all the long chain triglycerides are removed, thus leaving mainly the medium-chain triglycerides and making it an absolutely saturated oil. This saturation gives it a very, very long shelf life and greatly increased stability.
In addition, fractionating raises the comparative concentration of Capric acid and Caprylic acid, thus giving it more of antioxidant and disinfecting effect.
Preparation of Fractionated Coconut Oil
For this, hydrolysis of coconut oil is first carried out. Then, the product is passed through steam distillation to obtain the fractionated coconut oil. The result is a thin oil full of medium-chain triglycerides.
Composition of Fractionated Coconut Oil
Fractionated coconut oil is predominantly composed of Capric and Caprylic acids.
Uses of Fractionated Coconut Oil
Being thin and stable, it has plenty of uses which can be broadly categorized in the following applications.
It is widely used in the preparation of soaps, lotions, ointments and other cosmetics.
It is used as a carrier oil, since it facilitates the absorption of other oils and herbal extracts.
It is used due to its antiseptic and disinfectant properties.
It is also used in a number of hair care applications.
It is used in cooking, as it does not go rancid easily and is very stable.

Yes, we all need it, but why, and what is it and what does it do?
Some basic Magnesium facts…
Magnesium is the 8th most common mineral in the Earth’s crust. It is important for humans but equally as important for animals and plants. In fact all of life on Earth is based around the Magnesium atom, the organising ion in Chlorophyl, which is responsible for the process of photosynthesis.
Magnesium facts for the human body.
We all need Magnesium which is required for more than 300 functions of the human body’s biochemistry. We need it for energy, brain function, DNA function, muscle and nerve function and blood glucose levels as well as the proper functioning of the heart. Magnesium can also prevent Eclampsia during pregnancy. So why aren’t we getting enough through our diets?
More Magnesium facts.
The soils in most countries is woefully deficient in Magnesium. Therefore it simply does not enter the food chain in adequate amounts for ongoing health. Additionally, almost every single drug from headache tablets to antibiotics cause a significant drainage of Magnesium from the body. Any use of energy also uses large amounts of Magnesium. We need to take it regularly just to keep up our normal levels. Yet tablets and powders simply can not provide an adequate replacement due to their bioavailability being as little as 10% of intake. (Cohen.) Transdermal Magnesium (Applied to the skin) provides an answer for all these problems. Neither is it something that requires experimentation. Most pain in the body responds to transdermal Magnesium within a few seconds. It truly is an amazing mineral.
Lugol’s Iodine, also known as Lugol’s Solution, first made in 1829, is a solution of elemental iodine and potassium iodide in water, named after the French physician J.G.A. Lugol. Lugol’s iodine solution is often used as an antiseptic and disinfectant, for emergency disinfection of drinking water. Lugol’s Solution has been used more rarely to replenish iodine deficiency. Likewise, in the Chernobyl disaster some Lugol’s solution was used as an emergency source of iodide to block radioactive iodine uptake, simply because it was widely available as a drinking water decontaminant. Since the 1970s Lugol’s Solution has been available in tablet form, generally buffered. However, compounding chemists (pharmacists) had probably been creating tablets containing Lugol’s Solution since the early 1900s.
Bring Back the Universal Nutrient Medicine International Medical Veritas Association
Medical textbooks contain several vital pieces of misinformation
about the essential element Iodine, which may have caused
more human misery and death than both world wars combined.
Dr. Guy Abraham
The present situation we find ourselves in at the very beginning of the 21st century demands that we quickly reengineer medicine, not only mainstream allopathic but all the branches and alternatives. Consciousness is just forming around the conclusion that the majority of humans today are suffering from chronic poisoning. It is not just the fact that the tide of toxic chemicals is rising and accumulating in our cells and blood streams, wrecking physiological, emotional and mental havoc, but there is also a sheer drop in the quality and quantity of key nutrients being consumed. Iodine is a perfect example, in today’s world the last thing you want to be short on is iodine.
Iodine is detected in every
organ and tissue in the body.
We might debate about the optimum dosage but we should find quick agreement that iodine is absolutely necessary for a healthy thyroid as well as healthy ovaries, breasts and prostate. Beside the greater risk for breast cancer in iodine deficient women, there is convincing evidence that iodine deficiency increases also the risk of thyroid cancer. These are just a few of the reasons to become interested in iodine. In an age of increasing toxic exposures we all need more not less iodine because it has very specific protective effects against several common poisons like fluoride, bromide, and to a lesser extent it helps eliminate lead and mercury from the body. Dr. Sebastiano Venturi, in Evolution of Dietary Antioxidants: Role of Iodine, makes it clear that iodine is a crucial antioxidant and apoptosis-inductor with anti-tumoral and anti-atherosclerotic activity. When we supplement with iodine we will see increased antioxidant activity [i] and immune system function [ii].
Iodine, Cancer and Fibrocystic Disease
Several studies have demonstrated a relationship
between low iodine intake and fibrocystic disease of the
breast (FDB), both in women and laboratory animals.[iii]
Dr. David Derry said, “Lugol’s solution is an iodine-in-water solution used by the medical profession for 200 years. One drop (6.5 mg per drop) of Lugol’s daily in water, orange juice or milk will gradually eliminate the first phase of the cancer development namely fibrocystic disease of the breast so no new cancers can start. It also will kill abnormal cells floating around in the body at remote sites from the original cancer. Of course this approach appears to work for prostate cancer as prostate cancer is similar to breast cancer in many respects. Indeed, it likely will help with most cancers. Also higher doses of iodine are required for inflammatory breast cancer. As well we know that large doses of intravenous iodine are harmless which makes one wonder what effect this would have on cancer growth.”
Because iodine deficiency results in increased iodine trapping
by the thyroid, iodine deficient individuals of all ages are more susceptible to radiation-induced thyroid cancer.
Iodine plays a crucial role in the body’s elimination system by inducing apoptosis, or what is called programmed cell death, and this is vital because this process is essential to growth and development and for destroying cells that represent a threat to the integrity of the organism, like cancer cells and cells infected with viruses.
Women with goiters (a visible, non-cancerous enlargement of
the thyroid gland) owing to iodine deficiency have been found
to have a three times greater incidence of breast cancer.
A high intake of iodine is associated with a low incidence breast
cancer, and a low intake with a high incidence of breast cancer.
Dr. Donald Miller Jr.
Iodine is a very important primary nutrient in regards to people’s health and healing. So essential is iodine for life that those who are deficient in it suffer from a wide variety of afflictions (including cancer) that are difficult to trace back to this trace mineral. Iodine used to be considered much more importantly, so much so that up until 20 years ago, it had been routinely added to bread as a supplement. “Just how likely is an iodine deficiency in cancer? In an in-house study, 60 cancer patients (various types) were given the iodine-loading test and then measured for urinary excretion. All 60 patients were found to be seriously deficient in body stores of iodine and some had great excesses of bromine. The best case excreted only 50 percent of the load and the worst excreted only 20 percent (that means they were retaining a very high 80 percent). Folks, these are some serious numbers. One hundred percent of these cancer sufferers were deficient in iodine! I assure you the problem is population wide,”writes Dr. Robert Rowen.
60 million mainland Japanese consume a daily average
of 13.8 mg of elemental iodine, and they are one of the healthiest
nations based on overall well being and cancer statistics.

Some excerpts from the Doterra website include:
Founded in 2008, doTERRA was built on the mission of sharing therapeutic-grade essential oils with the world. Having seen for themselves the incredible benefits that can be had from using these precious resources, a group of health-care and business professionals set out to make this mission a reality. They formed a company and named it doTERRA, a Latin derivative meaning “Gift of the Earth.”
The first hurdle to overcome, however, was to establish a standard of quality in an industry that had never had one. It wasn’t enough to simply provide essential oils to homes around the world; the doTERRA founders were committed to providing only the highest quality and purest essential oils so that families could know with surety that they were using only the best to promote health and wellness for their loved ones. This commitment lead to the creation of a new standard of therapeutic quality:
To achieve such a grand vision as bringing essential oils to the world required a team of dedicated people. This team would need to be made up of people dedicated to hard work, commitment, passion, and vision. That team has grown since its initial inception, but the mission remains the same—to provide essential oils that appeal to everyone from the novice to the expert, and that can be used safely on your loved ones.
Sharing essential oils is a unique experience, and the founders of doTERRA recognized that a sales model just as unique would be needed. In order to best facilitate personal essential oil experiences, doTERRA utilizes a direct selling model that allows distributors to work with customers as opposed to mass marketing. This more individual approach allows individuals to experience for themselves the incredible power of essential oils while also developing relationships of trust. This model also created the opportunity for individuals and families to achieve their dreams of financial independence. Over 2 million Wellness Advocates, now use and sell doTERRA products around the world.
The first offering of doTERRA essential oils included 25 single oils and 10 blends and was introduced for sale on April 25, 2008. Since that time, the doTERRA product offering has added many more single oils and oil blends as well as nutritional, spa, and healthy living products based on essential oil technologies and a comprehensive wellness philosophy. Of course, that offering couldn’t be possible without a Global Botanical Network of artisans and distillers. As doTERRA has become a trusted partner in the essential oils industry, it has also been able to help communities improve their own economic futures through its Co-Impact Sourcing® model and the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™.
Based in a state of the art facility in Pleasant Grove, Utah, doTERRA continues to work toward achieving its vision of providing all families everywhere with the health-promoting benefits of essential oils.
