10 ways of using coconut: from oil to construction material.

1.One of the most widespread uses of coconut is to obtain cooking oil or margarine. Coconut fats are resistant to high temperatures. It should be consumed in moderation because it contains saturated fats.

2. The mix of nutrients from coconut water – minerals, vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, and antioxidants – make it an isotonic or rehydrating drink that athletes can consume. It can also be fermented to produce vinegar.

3.The fiber that is extracted from the shell is very resistant, so it can be used in the fabric of ropes and moorings for boats, mats or even brushes. On the other hand, the leaves of the palm tree are used to weave baskets, hats and to make brooms.

4.The wood that is extracted from palm trees is used as construction material or to make furniture and pots. One of the best examples is the Coco Palace in Manila, Philippines.

5.The husk is used in the cultivation of vegetables as fertilizer and is especially nutritious for orchids. The fiber that is left over after processing it for other uses and the leaves of the palm can be used as livestock feed in times of drought.

6. The coconut contains lauric acid, which when processed is used to create soaps, detergents, and shampoos. Coconut oil is also used by the industry to make creams, fragrances, and various cosmetics.

7.Among its diverse medicinal properties, it stands out that it helps to regulate the sanguineous pressure and the levels of sugar and cholesterol in the blood.

8. In addition, the water is sterile while it remains inside the coconut, so it is possible to use it as an emergency intravenous solution in cases where the blood volume decreases, such as hemorrhages or dehydration.

9. The shell can also be used to produce coal. On the other hand, perhaps the most surprising use of coconut involves the automotive industry and the oil industry …

10. … because coconut oil can be used as fuel in diesel engines. Under high-temperature conditions, it can be completely replaced, and in places with a temperature lower than 25 °, it can be mixed with diesel to prevent it from solidifying and damaging the engine.
