Breast milk is the healthiest and most precious nourishment for our babies. CoccoMio coconut oil with its essential nutrients and MCFA’s enriches a woman’s breast milk to help develop a strong immune system and a healthy growth for your baby.
Mother Nature has created breast milk in exactly the right composition.
Vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and antibodies that help your baby to sustain themselves and grow at an optimal level during the first years of life.
Breastfed babies have well-formed teeth and jaws, fewer allergies, a better digestive function and a stronger immune system.
A very important component of breast milk is Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA). In particular, Lauric acid and Capric acid are the richest antimicrobial agents.
These MCFAs improve nutrient absorption, aid digestion, help regulate blood sugar and have important antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic properties, essential for the baby’s immature immune system.
Obviously, the quality of the mother’s milk depends on the health and the eating habits of the mothers. If the diet is deficient in MCFA, the milk will be too, which means that the immune system, that is still developing, can be more prone to infections.
The good news is that CoccoMio’s Lauric Acid content is very similar to that of breast milk.
Mothers that consume coconut oil from pregnancy and continue taking it during breastfeeding, can have as much as 18% Lauric and Capric acids, compared to the 3% and 1% respectively if they don’t have a rich MCFA diet.
A mother who consumes coconut oil makes sure her baby is drinking a rich, nutritious and full of anti-body milk to ensure healthier and stronger growth!
CoccoMio, we’re just nuts about coconuts and only the best will do!
- Coconut oil was used as an ingredient for powdered milk before being replaced by the MCT artificial oil which is cheaper.
- In a study of 46 severely weight-bearing babies born an additional dose of coconut oil to infant formula was added. It was found that all children gained weight faster due to physical growth and not because of excess fat.
- In one study they divided 2 groups of pregnant sows. To the first, they gave coconut oil naturally rich in MCFAs and the second vegetable oil containing Long Chain Fatty Acids (LCFA). The piglets whose mothers ate coconut oil grew faster and healthier than the piglets whose mothers ate vegetable oils.*
The survival rate has also increased to 68% for mothers who ate MCFAs against 32% of LCFA.
