What are the health benefits of coconut oil?
 

 Information from: Dr. Oz and Dr. Pinnax
 

Coconut oil has a positive effect on our hormones for thyroid and blood sugar control. Coconut oil can boost thyroid function helping to increase metabolism, energy and endurance. It increases digestion and helps to absorb fat-soluble vitamins.
 
Can coconut oil reduce cholesterol? Coconut oil has a saturated fat called lauric acid, a type of MCT. It has been shown that lauric acid increases the good HDL cholesterol in the blood and helps to lower overall cholesterol ratio levels.
 
How does coconut help keep weight balanced? Coconut fats have special fats called medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). It has been shown that breaking down these types of healthy fats in the liver leads to efficient burning of energy. One 2009 study found that women who consumed 2 tablespoons of coconut oil daily for 12 weeks lost weight and actually had lowered amounts of abdominal fat, a type of fat that is difficult to lose, and contributes to more heart problems.
 
Is it true coconut can help with aging? The oils found in the coconut have a positive antioxidant action in the body. This means they help our body stop the damage to other healthy fats and tissues in our body. Oxidation is considered a major contributor to cardiovascular problems and skin aging. Is coconut oil good for my skin and hair? We tell our patients that from the time of infancy through the senior years, coconut oil is a wonderful moisturizer for skin and hair. It has good amounts of the antioxidant vitamin E. We even recommend new parents massage infants with coconut oil after a bath. One 2005 study of 120 babies showed that a coconut oil massage is safe and has health benefits.
 
A cure for Alzheimerís? This theory has to do with substances called ketones. The damage caused by Alzheimerís disrupts the brainís ability to use its primary energy source, known as glucose. The brain naturally gets a portion of its energy from ketone bodies when glucose is less available. Ketones may provide an alternative energy source to the brainís cells to moderate the damage caused by Alzheimerís disease. The body produces ketones when it metabolizes coconut oil.
 
How can I use coconut oil? Coconut oil works in both baked goods like zucchini and banana bread and with vegetables. It is especially tasteful when paired with bitter greens like kale. You can use it as part of the onion and garlic sautť, where it offers a surprisingly different and pleasant full-bodied taste. It is also a wonderful addition to oatmeal to make it even creamier, while staying healthy. Coconut oil can withstand the heat Ė making it a better cooking option.
 
Can coconut oil be used as a natural hair conditioner? Yes! Apply coconut oil directly onto your scalp. If you live in an arid climate, consider lightly misting your hair with water first. Then massage hair from hair roots to ends. Leave on for at least 30 minutes before washing. For deeper penetration, apply directly onto your scalp, massaging from roots to ends before bedtime. Then leave on overnight (cover your head with a cap or towel, or lay a towel across your pillow). Shampoo and rinse well in the morning. For best results, leave on for as long as you can and apply at least three times a week.
