Coconut oil benefits

Coconut oil:

▼ Builds immunity- against viruses and bacteria: coconut oil does  wonders for the immune system due to the antifungal, antibacterial and  antiviral properties in the antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, capric acid and  caprylic acid elements of the oil. We will talk more about these acids later but, in  particular, lauric acid turns into monolaurin which is scientifically proven as an  effective way to fight viruses and bacteria (such as listeria monocytogenes and  helicobacter pylori, and harmful protozoa such as giardia lamblia) that result in  herpes, influenza, measles cytomegalovirus, ulcers, throat infections, urinary  tract infections, pneumonia and gonorrhoea. It does so by destroying the lipid  layers of viruses and eventually destroying them altogether. Such has been its  success in this area that it has even been talked about as a potential weapon  against the HIV virus.

Monolaurin has been found very effective in killing bacteria which thrive on  the skin mucous membranes and in the internal body organs. When applied to  infected areas, coconut oil forms a chemical layer that protects the infected body  part from external dust, air, fungi, bacteria and viruses. Coconut oil is known to  be effective in the elimination of fungi and yeast that cause ringworm,  tapeworm, liver fluke athlete:s foot, thrush, and diaper rash. But coconut oil is  not finished there! When taken regularly, coconut oil can also help to accelerate  the healing of cuts and a variety of internal injuries, and will also enhance the  repair of internal tissues.

▼ Cures Candida: Coconut has proved efficient in preventing and even  curing Candida which is a serious disease that is also known as Systemic  Candidiasis. It is caused by uncontrolled and excessive growth of yeast called  Candida Albicans in the stomach. It is not the mere presence of the yeast that  causes problems, as this yeast exists in all stomachs to a greater or lesser degree,  and any negative impacts are usually counteracted by the existence of helpful  bacteria which also exist in every stomach. Problems can start when the growth  of yeast is not adequately controlled. This can occur when destructive bacteria, or  even antibiotics are introduced to the stomach which unintentionally eliminate  these bacteria. Alternatively, such acts as the bleaching or washing the stomach  by medicines, extensive use of chemical laxatives or the swallowing of poisonous  material can make the yeast or fungi to start growing exceedingly fast – this  commonly results in Candida.

It is important to know the symptoms of Candida so that the correct treatment  can be taken as soon as possible. Symptoms include:

o infection in the genitals, urinary tract and bladder, stomach and intestines,  ear, nose and throat;

o inflammations of internal organs and skin;

o dryness and itchiness of skin;

o skin which shows signs of patching and peeling off (especially in the scalp  area);

o issues with hair and nails;

o digestive problems;

o excretory disorders;

Europe and America are the areas of the world where the disease appears to be  the most prevalent. This could be attributable to the fact that the climate is cold  and moist climate, in addition to certain general food preparation, storage, and  consumption habits. Diet may also play a part in these locations, because a  significant proportion portion of their daily intake is made up of food stuffs which,  in different ways, are processed with yeast or fermented matter. Examples of such  products would include bread and other baked items, cheese and especially wine  and other alcoholic drinks. Ingesting such items will add to the amount of  naturally occurring yeast in the body.

So how does coconut oil work to combat this disease? The answer is in more  ways than one. Firstly, it gives much-needed relief from the inflammation that is  caused, both on the inside and the outside of the body. Secondly, its ability to

retain lots of moisture prevents the skin from cracking or peeling off. Of great  benefit is that fact that coconut oil is unique amongst all potential treatments,  including pharmaceuticals, because its impacts are felt gradually and not over  an inordinately short period of time. This has the effect of letting the patient deal  with withdrawal symptoms that can occur when the body reacts to reject the  toxins that are produced when these fungi are being exterminated. As a general  rule, this condition should be treated by the planned and gradual increase of  coconut oil. Although it may seem to be the correct course of action, one should  avoid the temptation of immediately beginning with a large amount.

What are the various components of the oil that work so effectively? There are  various fatty acids found in the coconut oil which are very beneficial in these  circumstances. One of these is Capric acid, which is a medium chain fatty acid,  which is also contained in breast milk. In that scenario, it protects the baby from  harmful bacterial, viral and fungal infections. In the body, it reacts with certain  enzymes that are emitted by other bacteria. This reaction produces a powerful  antimicrobial agent, which is known as monocaprin. Capric acid has been found  to be very effective in killing the yeast which can cause Candida.

Caprylic acid, caproic acid, myristic acid and lauric acid are four additional  components all found in coconut oil and which have similar characteristics and  effects.

▼ It aids digestion: It is amazing how many people suffer with various  kind of digestion these days, perhaps it is due to increased use of additives and  preservatives or more occurrences of harmful bacteria, fungi and parasites. The  good news is that coconut oil helps to improve your digestion – the simplest way to  benefit from this is to use it as a cooking oil. As well as preventing a number of  stomach and digestion-related ailments such as IBS (“Irritable Bowel Syndrome”)  and acid reflux, due to the anti-microbial properties, it can also help the body to  absorb nutrients such as vitamins, amino acids and minerals. Additionally, using  coconut oil for cooking will actually enhance the flavor of your food rather than  detract from it.

▼ Remedies pneumonia: A study presented before The American College  of Chest Physicians on October 29, 200S showed conclusively that coconut oil was  able to give people who were suffering from pneumonia more speedy and more  comprehensive relief from the major symptoms. Not only is that a major plus, but  there are also connected benefits which flow from that including: less time  needing to be spent in the hospital, lower medical expenses and reduced exposure  for the patient to a hospital environment, where “super-bugs” are becoming  increasingly prevalent. Additionally, it is an inexpensive alternative or  supplement to traditional antibiotics and has does not have any known side  effects.

▼ Fights diabetes: Coconut oil is very useful to people struggling with  diabetes because it helps in controlling blood sugar and also improves the emission  of insulin. In addition, it also help the body effectively utilize blood glucose, as well  as easing neuropathies and itching that are side-effects of diabetes.

▼ Reduces the risk of HIV and cancer: Although still in the relatively  early stages of research, preliminary research appears to indicate that coconut oil  can play a key role in reducing a person s viral susceptibility to HIV and cancers.

▼ Supports vital internal organs: Coconut oil can really help those  important parts of your body function effectively. For example, medium chain  triglycerides and fatty acids help to stop liver diseases – these elements readily  convert into energy when they arrive at the liver, which reduces the liver’s  workload as well as limiting the accumulation of fat at the same time. Coconut oil  can also play a role in preventing kidney and gall bladder disease, in addition to
