But improvements in blood pressure may only be the beginning to the beetroot’s scientific application. Within the beetroot is betacyanin, which has been found to slow the growth of tumors by percent in patients with prostate and breast cancer. The importance of slowing cancer growth shouldn’t be underestimated. Many cancer patients are dubbed “cancer free,” but only in light of the fact that the cancer has not returned over a certain period of time. Anything that might slow the growth of cancer within a patient will always allow more time to treat or even discover the disease before it becomes fatal.
Hi Jo, an unrefined coconut oil is sometimes labeled as “virgin” or “cold pressed virgin”, although many manufacturers also add “unrefined”. Almost all the coconut oils available in your grocery store or vitamin store are refined unless they specifically say otherwise on their label. I would try to find a brand that specifically mentions “unrefined”.

This is not a real coconut oil but a derivative of coconut oil. Read more about it here – http:///liquid-coconut-oil-mct-
