Breast milk, or breast feeding designed to supply all the best nutrients a baby needs for the first few years of life
Please pass this massage to your love ones and friends who needed this information ...
Mother's milk contains a perfect blend of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fats for optimal growth and development
Breast feeding children are the healthiest because they fed on important nutrients from the mother's milk, and receive antibodies and other substances necessary to protect them against childhood illnesses
They have better teeth and jaw formation, they are less prone to allergies, have better digestive function, and are better able to fight off infectious disease.
Research suggests that breastfed children may even develop higher intelligence
An important component of mother's milk is medium-chain fatty acids (MCT), principally lauric acid
Lauric acid is also the primary saturated fatty acid found in coconut oil
They also help to regulate blood sugar levels
Another very important function is that medium-chain fatty acids (MCT), protect the baby from harmful microorganisms.
The baby's immature immune system is supported by the antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic properties of these vital fatty acids.
In fact, without these unique saturated fats, the baby would probably not survive long.
It would become malnourished and highly susceptible to a myriad of infectious diseases
Breast Milk is, without question, the best choice of food for babies
Mother's milk also have antimicrobial properties, they give the infant some degree of protection against viruses such as HIV and herpes, bacteria such a chlamydia and H. pyloris, fungi such as Candida and protozoa such as giardia
A significant portion of the saturated fat in human breast milk can be in the form of medium-chain fatty acids,(MCT)
MCT not only allow infants to absorb needed fats but they improve the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, and protein
Human milk fat has a unique fatty acid composition
The primary fat is saturated, comprising about 45-50 percent of the total fat content
The next most abundant fat is monounsaturated which makes up about 35 percent of the milk fat
Polyunsaturated fat comprises only 15-20 percent of the total
A significant portion of the saturated fat in human breast milk can be in the form of MCT
The foods richest in medium-chain fatty acids are the tropical oils, principally coconut oil
The levels of these antimicrobial fatty acids can be as low as 3 to 4 percent, but when nursing mothers eat coconut products (shredded coconut, coconut milk, coconut oil, etc.) the levels of MCT in their milk increase significantly
For instance, eating 40 grams (about 3 tablespoons worth) of coconut oil in one meal can temporarily increase the lauric acid in the milk of a nursing mother from 3.9% to 9.6% after 14 hours
The content of caprylic and capric acids are also increased.
If the mother consumes coconut oil every day while nursing, the medium-chain fatty acid content will be even greater.
Preparation by the mother should start before the baby is born
Pregnant women store fat to be used later in making their milk.
After the baby is born the fatty acids stored in the mother's body and supplied by her daily diet are used in the production of her milk.
If she has eaten and continues to eat foods which supply ample amounts of MCFA, particularly lauric acid and capric acid (the two most important antimicrobial medium-chain fatty acids), her milk will provide maximum benefit to her baby.
These mothers can have as much as 18 percent of the saturated fatty acids in their milk in the form of lauric and capric acids.
If the mother did not eat foods containing MCT and does not eat them while nursing, her mammary glands will only be capable of producing about 3 percent lauric acid and 1 percent capric acid.
Her child will lose a great deal of the nutritional benefits as well as the antimicrobial protection the infant could have otherwise had.
Mother's milk reduce the occurrence of malnutrition and birth defects in children.
Pregnant women can get better nutrition so their babies aren't born with birth defects
Nursing mothers are able to provide their babies breast milk with a higher level of nutrition so their children can grow and develop properly
Mother's milk is food, it does not have adverse side effects, as many drugs do
As people learn about the health benefits of coconuts they will start using them
Now that you understand this facts, please do not give excuses "that mothers do not or cannot produce milk for the new born"
It's our duty to share this knowledge with expectant mothers
I encourage you to read and share this book "The Coconut Oil Miracle" with your family, friends, and neighbors.
Give them copies and encourage them to give copies to others
When you do this you are giving them the gift of health, the most precious gift you could ever give
A portion of the proceeds of each book sold, goes to funding the "Save the Children Campaign"
