Coconut oil is one of the few foods that can be classified as a “superfood.” Its very unique combination of fatty acids can have profound positive effects on health. This includes, better brain function, fat loss and various other amazing benefits.
A recent studies show incredible results that coconut oil kills 93% of colon cancer cells after just two treatments.
Laboratory study results has shown that lauric acid which makes 50% of the content of coconut oil eliminated more than 90% of colon cancer cells after two treatments.
What is very interesting is that lauric acid(main component of coconut oil) contaminated cancer cells by releasing a lot of intense oxidative stress and by effectively reducing the levels of glutathione in cancer cells at once.
Glutathione is used by cancer cells to protect from oxidative stress.
There are only few studies that have highlighted the anti-cancer properties of coconut oil.
Therefore, coconut oil is famous for the healing properties and health benefits for numerous years.
It is a important fact that coconut oil can successfully eliminate parasites, bacteria, fungi, various viruses and harmful microorganisms.
Coconut oil also supports digestion, improves skin health, aids liver metabolism, reduces inflammation and accelerates wound healing.
Also some studies suggest that coconut oil can also be very helpful in cases of diabetes because it has ability to increase the levels of good cholesterol (HDL) in women, regulate the HDL – LDL ratio and support weight loss efforts of both men and women.
Coconut oil is now important part of clinical trials focused on balancing of cholesterol levels in patients who are affected from chronic heart disease, for stabilizing blood sugar levels and blood pressure and preventing and fighting Alzheimer’s disease.
Coconut oil is one of a kind when it comes to the presence of lauric acid because this acid takes about 50% of its content.
Lauric acid is a type of triglyceride that is very difficult to find in any other food. And that makes coconut a unique, super food. Another very interesting fact is that cow’s fat consists of 2% lauric acid and about 6% of human milk is lauric acid. This means that humans need more lauric acid than other living beings.
Of course, all these scientific studies don’t mean that coconut and coconut oil are the natural cure for cancer.
However, this is a reminder for all scientists that work in this field that Mother Nature has provided many means and tools to fight disease and that we should invest more in research of natural remedies.
