heart and blood vessels. Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) is by far the
most common cardiovascular disease. It is of great concern because it sets the
stage for hypertension (high blood pressure), heart attack, and stroke.
Cardiovascular disease is and has been leading cause of death in Western countries
for decades.

Heart disease is a consequence of diet and life style. So, if you eat the right types of
food, you can prevent heart attack. In this respect, coconut and particularly coconut
oil, appears to be an effective weapon against heart illness.

Coconut is used as both food to sustain life and as a medicine to restore health.
Tradition has it that eating the fruit of coconut tree is one of the secrets to good
health and a long life.

Using coconut oil for all cooking and food preparation needs reduces the amount of
omega-6 fatty acids in your diet, thus reducing the effects of prostaglandins that
raise blood pressure. If blood pressure is elevated due to the over consumption of
omega-6 fatty acids, simply removing these fats from the diet will lower it. This is
exactly what people experience when they substitute coconut oil for the oils they
have been using in their diet. Thus, heart diseases can be prevented.
