The scientific name for coconut is Cocos nucifera. Early Spanish explorers called it coco, which means "monkey face" because the three indentations (eyes) on the hairy nut resembles the head and face of a monkey. Nucifera means "nut-bearing." Coconut is rich in fiber, very versatile and indispensable fruit for most people under the tropical belt. They are antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-parasitic, meaning they kill harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. It is classified as a "functional food" because it provides many health benefits beyond its nutritional content. The coconut palm is highly valued as both a source of food and Traditional and Modern medicine that it is called "The Tree of Life."
