Dried coconut flesh is called copra, and the oil and milk derived from it are commonly used in cooking – frying in particular – as well as in soaps and cosmetics (skin, baby care & hair care).

It helps in dealing with viruses and bacteria that cause diseases such as herpes, influenza & cytomegalovirus. It provides defenses against harmful bacteria such as listeria monocytogenes and helicobacter pylori, and harmful protozoa such as giardia lamblia.
