PRACTICAL STEPS IN MAKING YOUR OWN COCONUT OIL

There are a lot of commercially prepared coconut oil sold in most supermarkets but the problem with commercially prepared coconut oil is that one is not too clear on the substances that may have been added as preservatives .it is allways advisable to prepare your own coconut oil since the process is straight forward and equally quite easy to follow.
The reason I would want you to try and follow this do-it-yourself process of making coconut oil ,is so that you can enjoy the full health benefits of pure coconut oil.so lets get started
ITEMS NEEDED

  1. Coconut about 5
  2. Grater
  3. a sieve
  4. bowl
  5. pot
  6. warm water
Crack the hard part of the coconut and brink out the soft inner side.
wash very well,and using the most tiny part of the grater, grate the coconut to very tiny almost powdery form.
Add warm water to the grated coconut.The amount of water added should be enough to bring out the milkiness of the coconut. squeeze the grated coconut very well and transfer the coconut chaff to another container and add more warm water and squeeze  more to ensure that all the milky part of the coconut is completely removed
Then pour the milky extraction through a sieve to remove all coconut chaff.
Place the extraction in a pot and cover it.
Allow it to stand for 24 hours.
After 24 hours, when you open the pot,you will see  that the milky portion of the coconut extract has collected at the top with clear water under.
collect this top milky portion carefully with a cooking spoon into a small cooking pot.
biol this milky portion under low heat.after a few minute you will begin to see the oil emerging.
Once the oil in the pot is very clear,remove from the fire and allow to cool
pour the pure coconut oil into a bottle, and it is ready for use.
As you can see making coconut oil is not really a complex process. so try making it and let me have your comments on any challenges you may have encountered or if you know other ways of making it that is simpler than the process I have just outlined.
ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINUOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT

Surprising causes of high blood pressure, simple strategies to manage hypertension By: Bel Marra

How healthy is your blood pressure? And exactly what causes high blood pressure, anyway? It rises with each and every heartbeat and then falls as your heart relaxes between beats. It can change from minute to minute with exercise, stress, sleep, even your posture. The important thing is you want to keep it in the healthy range: Less than 120/80 mm Hg – less than 120 systolic and less than 80 diastolic – for adults age 20 and over. Most Americans, though, are reading closer to 140/90 or higher, which puts them in the high blood pressure range. That news is grim. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that the proportion of Americans reporting they have high blood pressure rose nearly 10 percent from 2005 to 2009. High blood pressure, or hypertension, affects nearly one-third of Americans. And nearly half of those cases are out of control, health officials say. Furthermore, nearly one in three Americans has prehypertension – a condition which shows elevated blood…
