 Definition of Virgin Coconut Oil

Virgin coconut oil means, oil extracted from well matured and fresh coconut meat (not copra) by mechanical or natural means. It’s best be obtained without using heat, does not undergo chemical refining, bleaching, or deodorizing, so as the oil’s essential properties,  is well protected and preserved, as they were present in their original state in the coconut.




Processed by natural means without heat and any chemical. Composed of at least 9 fatty acid (Medium Chain Fatty Acids) namely caproic, caprylic, capric, lauric, myristic, stearic, oleic and linoleic acid. Study shows that it's really beneficial to mankind regardless of age range. Suitable to be consumed, applied on skin, as a massage ointment, and also good for couples.

According to the standards, virgin coconut oil must be colorless, sediment free with natural fresh coconut scent and free from rancid odors or tastes. It is required to have a maximum of .20% moisture and volatile content to prevent rancidity and not contain any food additives.

How virgin coconut oil is processed?

BIO-ASLI's virgin coconut oil is produced organically by natural fermentation process  without applying any heat so as its natural fat structure ( fatty acids, particularly its lauric acid and capric acid are preserved as those in its natural form (in well matured and fresh coconut fruit).

We adopted traditional fermentation method - Coconut milk extracted from the fresh coconuts is fermented for 1-2 days for the oil to separate from the water and solid contents (which are mostly protein). Special method is being applied to reduce moisture content and be filtered.


What makes Bio-Asli's VCO manufacturing process secured its quality ?

To ensure the natural MCFA and the existing antioxidant in VCO are preserved, we purposely  adopt traditional fermentation, but with innovative modern concept. Therefore, do not use enzymatic reaction as it may disturbed the VCO lipoprotein bonding, do not apply any heating process as it may dispel VCO’s antioxidant. And also by mean of acid catalyst which maight untie MCFA. Furthermore, Bio-Asli offers marvelous technique for discarding moisture, as we could have maximum of 5% (compare to standard 20%) moisture and volatile content to prevent rancidity.

VCO's quality


What is VCO, what is the content of VCO and how could wide range of diseases can be healed and why VCO could benefits our body? This question seems to be discussed regularly and everywhere these days. Thus, many parties are now really eager to get a better understanding of VCO, particularly its content.

Many research proved that VCO contains a unique form of saturated fat that is different from those found in animal and some vegetable fats. Virgin coconut oil is the best source of medium and short chain fatty acids, proven to be rich in natural antimicrobial (antivirus, antibacterial, antifungal and antiprotozoa) and equivalent to breast milk. The presence of abundant antioxidant in VCO, makes it to be something that no  one should resist.

Eventhough coconut oil had been used and consumed for generations, but no standard being set which the world had agreed upon. The only available satandard are The Asia and Pacific Coconut Community (APCC) and The Philippine National Standard (PNS) with the code PNS / BAFPS No.22:2004. Both cover the standard quality of VCO, as well as the  manufacturing processes.

As a comparison, schedule 2 shows the quality standard of VCO according to SII (1979). Meanwhile schedule 3 shows the quality standard of VCO according to APCC (2005).  Schedule 2 and 3 show the fatty acid content in VCO and coconut oil. The medium chain fatty acid is higher in VCO compared to coconut oil.

According to AFCC, in VCO's manufacturing, it does not matter  whether process with or without heating, provided that it does not destroy the antioxidants and does not denatures all the chemical structure of the MCFA components.

 Therefore, VCO which are produced by traditional fermentation or by gradual heating could be categorized as VCO. Anyway, PNS outlines a more precise criteria; VCO is produced without undergoing of chemical refining, deodorizing and bleaching (RDB).

The benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil

1- Similar to fats in mother's milk and have similar nutriceutical effects.

2- For mothers who breast-fed  their child, taking Virgin Coconut Oil as part of their nutrition will discover that the levels of lauric acid and capric acid increase significantly. (see detailed information Removal Impact of Virgin Coconut Oil to lactating mother)

3-Act as a superb Anti Oxidant  agent (Protect or prolonging the life of cells)

4-Antimicrobial (Antivirus and antibacterial)

Lauric acid and capric acid in virgin coconut oil which are 'medium chain fatty acid', the precursor of monolaurin and monocaprin in human or animal body respectively. Both monolaurin and monocaprin  possessed antiviral, antibacterial and antiprotozoal properties. Lauric acid and its monoglyceride derivatives combating lipid-coated viruses (LCVs) such as HIV virus, measles virus, herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1), vesicular stomatitus virus (VSV), visna virus, and cytomegalovirus (CMV), influenza, and a variety of pathogen bacteria including listeria monocytogenes and helicobacter pylori, and protozoan such as giardia lamblia.

The antiviral action attributed to monolaurin is that of solubilizing the lipids and phospholipids in the envelope of the virus causing the disintegration of the virus envelope. In effect, it is reported that the fatty acids and monoglycerides produce their killing or inactivating effect by lysine the (lipid bilayer) plasma membrane.

However, there is evidence from some recent studies that one antimicrobial effect of monolaurin is related to its interference with signal transduction in cell replication.

5- Increase metabolic rate in human or animal body

6- Classified as functional food.

According to ILSI NORTH AMERICA SPECIAL CONFERENCE functional food is defined as food that provides a health benefit over and beyond the basic nutrients.

 As a functional food, coconut has fatty acids which provide both energy (nutrients) and raw material for antimicrobial monoglycerides (functional component) when it is eaten.

Approximately 50% of the fatty acids in coconut fat are lauric acid. Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty acid, which has the additional beneficial function of being formed into monolaurin in the human or animal body. Monolaurin is the antiviral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal monoglyceride used by the human or animal to destroy lipid coated viruses such as HIV, herpes, cytomegalovirus, influenza, various pathogenic bacteria including listeria monocytogenes and heliobacter pylori, and protozoa such as giardia lamblia. Some studies have also shown some antimicrobial effects of the free lauric acid

Also, approximately 6-7% of the fatty acids in coconut fat are capric acid. Capric acid is another medium chain fatty, which has a similar beneficial function when it is formed into monocaprin in the human or animal body. Monocaprin has also been shown to have antiviral effects against HIV and is being tested for antiviral effects against herpes simplex and antibacterial effects against chlamydia. (Reuters, London June 29, 1999)

Dr. Halldor Thormar, the Icelandic scientist, who previously showed that monolaurin, which comes from the fat in coconut, kills lipid coated DNA and RNA viruses including HIV and herpes viruses as well as other microorganisms including gram positive bacteria has just announced the potential effectiveness of monocaprin dissolved in a gel in killing HIV. Monocaprin also comes from the fat in coconut. Thormar and his colleagues plan to continue the tests with monocaprin against chlamydia and herpes simplex virus.



Virgin coconut oil (VCO) is really effective to soften and moisturizing dry skin. When it is applied, skin will be smooth and moisturized. VCO is natural and it does not leave the thin fatty layer on your skin like other lotions and commercial oil. VCO is not only leave your skin moisturized, soft and smooth; it also removes dead cells and leave your skin nourish and younger, because VCO could help the new cells growing healthier.

Many people agree that VCO could give you the UV protection; it could avoid whitehead and skin cancer. VCO is really good in protecting your skin from the sunlight; it could keep your skin long lasting and healthy even under the sunlight. Unlike sunscreen, VCO is suitable for all skin types. It leaves the sun protection naturally on your skin. Sunscreen has certain degree of Sun Protection Factor (SPF), however not all skin types need the same degree of SPF. Sunscreen also does not help your skin to be naturally protected, because it does not leave the natural sun protection on your skin.

Why virgin coconut oil (VCO) leaves your skin remedies and revives? It is because medium chain fatty acid (MCFA) in VCO has the metabolic effect on skin and the cell activity such as wound healing process is done by metabolism. The higher degree of metabolism could help skin cells activities such as poison elimination, wound healing, dead cell removal, and damaged cell remedial to be done rapidly. It is because MCFA gives an instant energy on skin cells for metabolism and rapid healing.

Virgin coconut oil has the specific benefit; it could reduce the chronic skin infection only in a few days. A study that was done by Dr. S Sadeghi, stated that virgin coconut oil could reduce the pro infection chemical in body. He suggests people to use virgin coconut oil for serious disease infection treatment. Virgin coconut oil should be taken as a supplement food to get an effective treatment; this will give the same treatment in the body as we apply on our skin. The other skin disorders that are categorized as irritation in channel gastrointestinal disease are colitis, boil, hepatitis and hemorrhoids. These diseases can be treated by taking virgin coconut oil. Virgin coconut oil also could heal the irritation of the other parts of body, such as multiple sclerosis, arthritis, and phlebitis.

From the information above, it describes that virgin coconut oil can be used in or outside of our body to get an exciting health benefits.


Metabolism and Energy

When a person is inflicted by a serious or critical injury as a result of a car accident until he/she should be rushed to the hospital to undergo emergency treatment, or seize by a life threatening decease say in connection with age diopname to cure a degenerative disruption. In this situation of life and death, it greatly depends on the treatment receive in the hospital. Often it depends on infusion. At the emergency unit there may be another patient, who suffer from complication due to a hereditary illness like cystic fibrosis or epilepsy or premature baby fighting for his / her first few weeks of life. In each of the above situation, actually these patients can actually count on the Virgin Coconut Oil for their recovery. Yes indeed, in one form or another, virgin coconut oil is part of his / her remedy.

Despite it's content, remedial needs good nutrition. Many nutritionist see the usefulness of MCFA for a long time. Virgin coconut oil was an alternative, used in the hospital as mixture in milk to feed the baby, or as lactation dilution included to the body patient through infusion or drip or through the throat. In case of emergency when commercial dilution not found, doctor in the tropical areas will use coconut milk. It is often considered as “ coconut milk “, fresh coconut water which is free from bacteria. Moreover, it contained salt mineral, sugar and medium chain fatty acid (MCFA) which are able to give sustenance to a patient incapable of taking or digest common food. Coconut water reported already save the life of hundreds who are seriously ill and hurt. Among the greatest benefit is, it overcomes dehydration and electrolyte depletion to injured soldiers. During the II World War, Japanese used water coconut for treatment in the state of emergency.

Questions may arise, why we must use it? This is because MCFA in virgin coconut oil is easily digested and absorbed by our body. Virgin coconut oil is really good for those who get illness or seriously injured. It is not wonder why MCFA is added in baby’s milk formula, because breast milk is also contain MCFA. MCFA is not only found in virgin coconut oil, but it also found in breast milk. MCFA is really essential for infants and digestive disorder (cystic fibrostic) treatment. MCFA is really good for all, even for those who don’t have any health problem. It could improve your health performance. Besides, athletes are also use virgin coconut oil to improve their body balance and weight management. Nowadays, there are just a few foods known that contain MCFA. In that case, virgin coconut oil is the best solution for those who want to keep up their health.


Protection from disease

The other benefit of breast milk is it can protect the baby from disease infection. This is compulsory for the baby to be protected from disease and get the immunity before they could have the perfect immunity system. Antimicrobial in breast milk can protect the baby from bacteria and parasite. If they don’t get the sufficient MCFA, they will be easily infected with diseases and it would be highly risk for them. It is different for adult; they can fight disease and infection with the immunity system in their body, so that they won’t be easily infected by any disease.

When a lactating mother was infected by a disease, her child will be infected by the disease. The viruses that attack the mother will affect her child by lactation. So that, mother who was infected by dangerous virus such as AIDS was not recommended to milk her child. Researcher suggested mother to take virgin coconut oil as a supplement, because it contains acid laureate and caprate acid, it will decrease the risk of infection to her child. Usually, mother who was infected by HIV virus is not recommended to milk her baby to avoid infection towards her baby. However, in some country, they have no choice; they have to milk their baby because of their economic problem, so that they are suggested to add coconut oil in their food. This is the only way for women to avoid their child from being infected by AIDS virus.

Recommended that the mother infected by HIV while nursing his child used 24-28 grams /  day laurate acid and 3–4 grams / d day caprate acid to prevent the virus from spreading. This is because coconut oil contains almost 48 % laurate acid and 7 % caprate acid. So that, the mother need to take 50-55 grams coconut oil daily. But then, 3.5 tablespoon of coconut oil daily will be enough.

Other viral infections that cause smallpox, herpes, mononucleosis and others is also a threat to the baby who suckle. Pregnant women and lactating mother could protect their child by taking a lot of coconut oil or coconut product that contain coconut oil, like coconut milk.

Mother or mother-to-be who want a healthy baby and their baby grow perfectly will consider this oil added to their food. This not only will ensure good health for their child, in addition it is also beneficial for them.

MCFA is a vital nutrient and protector found in breast milk. MCFA is very effective in killing AIDS virus. It is also really good in providing nutrient to the premature baby to grow healthy. From the moment human grow up and start aging, the body condition would start to decline. At this moment MCFA is able to give the nutrient beside protection, either for contagious disease or degenerative disease, similar as what happen to the baby although the baby does not undergo degenerative process. In conclusion, coconut oil gives much benefit to those young and old people.


Substance digestion and absorption  

Over 50 year, researchers had identified that MCFA digestion is different than other fat. This difference had an important application for remedial of digestive and metabolic disorder and since then MCFA is used routinely in hospital and for infant formula.

Well-being benefit digestion of medium chain fatty (MCFA) or long-chain fatty acid (LCFA) is contact with variations of body system to metabolize this fat. Because of its smaller molecules, it only need fewer and smaller enzyme energy to split it for digestion, than dissolved and absorbed quickly with a minimum energy.

MCFA is broken down directly by the enzyme in the saliva and stomach acid, therefore the pancreatic enzyme that digests the fat doesn’t need to struggle. Thus digestion process in pancreas and digestion system is lesser. This situation had an important influence on patient who had digestive and metabolic disorder. Premature infant or sick baby especially with underdeveloped digestive organ, will be able to absorb MCFA sufficiently, rather than other fat which will pass through the system without much can be digested. Therefore people who suffer digestive disorder such as cystic fibrosis will found difficulty in digesting or absorb fat and vitamin which can be soluble in fat, unlike with MCFA. MCFA is also important for people who suffer from diabetes, obesity, ill bladder, pancreatic, Crohn disease, inadequacy pancreatic and several form of cancer.

Once when we are getting older, our body will not function as good as when we were young. The pancreas no longer produce enough digestive enzyme, intestine does not absorb nutrient properly. All digestion process subside until it's efficiency decline. Consequently, old people often suffer vitamins and minerals deficiency and need to add MCFA in their in food because MCFA can be digested easily and improve digestion of vitamins and minerals. This is easy to do if their food is made of from virgin coconut oil.

Unlike other fatty acid, MCFA is directly absorbed from the intestines into tube back portal and goes directly to the heart where a large part will be burn as fuel as carbohydrate. In this matter MCFA burn more easily as compared to carbohydrate or other fat.

Other fat need pancreatic enzyme to split it into smaller units. It will be absorbed into intestinal wall and in fat package (lipid) and those proteins named lipopotenis. Lipoprotein are brought by the lymphatic system , then circulated to the whole body. From the moment it moves in the blood, fat component will be divided into whole network of the body. Lipoprotein becomes small and smaller, until a few remained. When it is taken by the liver, it will be broken down and used to make energy if required, shuffle into other lipoprotein and return into the blood stream to be sent to the whole body. Cholesterol, saturated fat, non monosaturated fat and non saturated poly fat, all will be jointly arranged in lipoprotein, enter the heart and are transformed into energy until it never remain as body fat.

In every cell there is an organ called mitochondria. Mitochondria are required by cells to carry out its function. Mitochondria have two membrane cells which need specific enzyme to carry nutrient to get through over it. MCFA is unique where it can easily penetrate the second mitochondria membrane without enzyme and give quick and efficient energy to the cell. However, long chain fatty acid (LCFA) needs specific enzyme to go trough the membranes of mitochondria. It also processes the energy production slower.

Because of its benefit, virgin coconut oil considered to be life saving for people, especially for baby and old people. As a treatment, it is used in specific food preparation for people who suffer from pollution and having difficulty in digesting fat. For the same reason, it can also be used in infant formula to cure undernourishment because it can be absorbed quickly to provide nutrition in body. 

Eating foods which contains MCFA is like using a high octane fuel for a car. The car will accelerates faster and get cover a longer distance / refuel. That's what happened, with MCFA the body can work more because it had more energy and greater immunity, because MCFA is channeled directly to heart and transformed into energy getting extra. This is because MCFA is easily adsorbed by the energy producing cell and metabolism increase by itself. Finally this energy increase will predominate stimulation on the whole body.

MCFA can be directly digested and generate energy and also stimulate the metabolism intrigue is a fact. So that, there are many athletes utilize it to improve their performance. Recently, research shows this fact is truly possible. Many researchers use mice in their experiment. Their experiment is about the immunity between the mice that were given MCFA as their daily food and the mice that weren’t given MCFA as their daily food. The experiment was held for six weeks. Regarding to the experiment, the mice are tested on their ability to swim in a reservoir for every two days. The result shows that the performance of the mice that are given MCFA as their daily food is better than the other one. This shows that MCFA has the ability to improve the immune system of the mice. In the other study, the researchers used cyclist athlete as their sample. The cyclists cycle 70% of his maximum's speed for two hours. Then, they need to immediately attempt for 40 Km (they are given an extra hour). In this study, each of the cyclists is given MCFA solution, sport beverage, and the other is MCFA mixed with sport beverage. As the result, the athlete who drinks MCFA mixed with sport beverage shows the best performance in the study. He cycles fastest than the other two cyclists. The researchers make the theory that MCFA supplies glycogen and gives an extra energy to the athlete. The glycogen that is supplied is completely used during the three hours of the experiment. The extra glycogen that was supplied by MCFA helps the athlete to perform well. Then, in the next study, the researchers try to find the theory of glycogen production. The samples are among cyclist and each of them are given the same drink as the study before. They need to cycle 60% of their maximum ability for 3 hours. According to the same training, the rate of glycogen in their muscle was measured and the result shows that the rate of glycogen in their muscle is same. This shows that MCFA doesn’t supply glycogen, but it improves the athlete performance. Their performance doesn’t relate with glycogen supplement and it might be relate with other mechanism.

As the result of this study, there are many sports drink and energy drinks that contain MCFA to give instant energy being sold in pharmacies. Usually, MCFA was used in athlete drinks and energy drink. The other is medium chain triglycerides (MCT's oil) in oil form. Usually, it is indicated as MCT on supplement and infant formula label. For those who want to improve their performance, especially athletes, they should take supplement food but not drugs.

Yet, in daily observation, the results are more significant. So that, the best way to boost energy and stamina is by consuming MCFA daily and not just during competition.

So that, not only athlete, but all people can take virgin coconut oil to boost their energy for their daily activity.

Besides, it also could improve the metabolism and protect from illness and accelerate the remedial. The cells in body could be more efficient, wound could be healed faster, and the dead cells could be replaced with new cells faster.

Several health problems such as obesity, acute myocardial infarction and osteroclerosis are easily happen to people with low metabolism. Health condition will worsen if metabolic rate is lower than normal metabolism, because the cell can never get cured and turn over a new leaf quickly. By increasing the metabolic rate, it could improve the protection from degenerative diseases and contagious diseases.
