Medical research and clinical observations have shown that the medium chained fatty acids from coconut oil may provide a wide range of health benefits, some of which are summarized below.
The cholesterol-lowering properties of coconut oil are a direct result of its ability to stimulate thyroid function. In the presence of adequate thyroid hormone, cholesterol (specifically LDL-cholesterol) is converted by enzymatic process to the vitally necessary anti-aging hormones pregnenolone, progesterone and DHEA. These substances are required to help prevent heart disease, senility, obesity and other diseases associated with aging and chronic degeneration. Coconut oil also contains up to 50% lauric acid which has powerful anti-microbal and anti-fungal properties. (Definition of anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties; 'an agent which destroys or inhibits bacteria, fungi, protozoa or viruses that are pathogenic'.)
