The Many Health Benefits of Coconut Oil
by Dianne Ronnow
Coconut oil is full of healthy benefits. Next to mother’s milk, it is nature’s highest
source of medium chain fatty acids (MTC’s), which raise the body’s metabolism,
leading to weight loss. It has fatty acids such as lauric acid and monoglycerides,
similar to mother’s breast milk.

When lauric acid is consumed in the body, whether through mother’s milk or coconut
oil, it enhances the immune system to help the body fight infections, diseases, bad
bacteria and yeast invasions. Lauric aid is known to be anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-
bacterial.

Coconut oil raises the metabolism, which helps people who are trying to lose weight
and people suffering from thyroid problems. Coconut stabilizes the blood sugar levels,
helping with diabetes. It also protects the heart cells from damage.

Coconut oil helps relieve the symptoms of menopause, and pre-menstrual syndrome
(PMS). Many women who suffer the effects of PMS have found the symptoms
lessened when coconut oil was consumed often in their diet.

Coconut oil does not raise cholesterol. Studies have shown that people who use
coconut oil have lower cholesterol than those who do not, even when the people
consuming coconut also eat other high cholesterol foods like eggs and meat.

Unlike refined vegetable oils, coconut oil does not become rancid easily. When oil
becomes rancid it becomes toxic as it oxidizes and causes free-radical damage in the
body. The unsaturated oils in cooked foods can become rancid within hours of
cooking it, even in the refrigerator. Coconut oil is so stable that it can be left a room
temperature for at least a year, and it will not become rancid. Some coconut oil
producers say coconut oil will last at least 3 years at room temperature before
becoming rancid. Since it is such a stable cooking oil, you can use coconut oil in place
of other oils, margarine, butter and shortening, for all your cooking needs.

Coconut oil smells good, tastes pleasant and is so good for our bodies that some
people consume it straight, by the tablespoon, and use it in place of other oils on their
salads. Many people also use it as an ingredient when juicing or making smoothies.

If all this good news isn’t enough, coconut oil one of the best things you can apply
directly on your skin and hair. It not only gives temporary relief to skin problems like
rashes, but it aids in healing and restoring skin to a younger appearance. It has also
been known to help with people who suffer from yeast infections in the skin, and
there is solid research that shows the MCTs in coconut oil do overcome yeast
infections. Coconut oil also makes an excellent massage oil.
