Coconut Oil Is An Effective Treatment For Candida Yeast Infections

Coconut oil was found to be effective in killing some forms of Candida, which causes candidiasis in humans during a study performed at the University College Hospital in Ibadan, Nigeria. This study was later published in the Journal of Medical Food. For those that suffer with candida, Coconut oil is an anti-fungal by nature, which means it is a yeast-fighter as well. The yeast on the inside is fought by coconut oil and when eaten it relieves these symptoms on the skin as well. It is a natural enhancer of the immune system since it is both anti-bacterial and anti-viral. The use of Caprylic acid for candida has been done for years and it is one of the medium chain fatty acids that are found in coconut oil. Capric acid and lauric acid, the same as what is found in mother's milk, are both effective as a long-term cure for candida. They work together with the caprylic acid to achieve the destruction of the yeast. Coconut oil takes care of a variety of candida symptoms.Symptoms of Candida*vaginal yeast infection an...

The Nuts and Bolts on Torque Wrenches

A wrench that is used to set the torque of a fastening such as a nut or bolt to a great degree of precision is called a torque wrench. It is actually a socket wrench that comes with special internal mechanisms and is of great use where you need to be absolutely sure about the tightness of the screws and the bolts. You can measure how much torque is applied so that you are sure that the tightness is up to the specifications. So, you can ensure that there is proper loading and tension of all the parts. So indirectly, it is measuring bolt tension. However, thanks to the friction between the mating hole and the fastener, this technique does suffer from inaccuracy sometimes. So it is better to measure the bolt tension or the bolt stretch and very often torque is the only measurement that is possible and accurate. Let's take a look at what it looks like. The simplest one is a long lever arm that runs between the handle and the wrench head and is made of a material which bends elastically under the applied torque. T...
