Copra is a product of the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera), one of the world’s most important oil-bearing crops. Demand for coconut oil is currently rising, mainly for its healing properties. The oil positively aids treatment of some nervous diseases, such as epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease. Furthermore, its preventive effects have been demonstrated in some infectious diseases; the oil reduces the risk of heart disease and lowers blood cholesterol. For cosmetic purposes, coconut oil is highly regarded for its natural hydration capabilities as well as hair-protective properties. The bulk of coconut oil is, however, processed in biofuel production.
