What Benefits Can Coconut Oil Bring to Our Health
Coconut oil can be used in many type of food cooking. Do you know why it is so popular or what benefits do coconut oil consumption bring us?
1.Coconut oil is a kind of efficiently metabolized oil. This is due to unrefined coconut oil, made mostly of rare medium-chain fatty acids, are a type of saturated fats that are easily broken down by the body and turned into energy. This means good things for people with hypothyroidism, type 2 diabetes, weight loss goals, and who want to regulate blood sugar. One 2009 study founds that women who consumed 30 milliliters (about 2 tablespoons) of coconut oil daily for 12 weeks not only did not gain more weight, but actually had lowered amounts of abdominal fat, a type of fat that is difficult to lose, and contributes to more heart problems. The MCFAs in coconut oil are even suggested to have antioxidant and anticoagulant benefits.
2.Coconut oil does good to immune system. Lauric acid, the primary MCFA in coconut oil, accounting for about half of its fatty acid content, is a rare fatty acid that has been determined to support immune function. In addition to that, Lauric acid even kills viruses, fungi, and harmful bacteria while being non-toxic and safe. No wonder it’s so good for the digestive tract and even for the skin when applied externally/topically. A study in the Journal of Medicinal Food also showed Lauric acid’s antimicrobial properties: by converting to monolaurin in the body, it kills bacteria associated with stomach ulcers.
3.Coconut oil can help reduce cholesterol. Study shows that lauric acid in coconut helps improve cholesterol ratio levels by increasing the good HDL cholesterol in the blood. Coconut oil can help restore normal thyroid function. Once thyroid function doesn’t function optimally, it can contribute to higher levels of bad cholesterol.
Besides, for unrefined coconut oil contains the highest ratio of saturated fats compared to other oil, it is highly stable for cooking. So it is better and healthier for baking and frying.
