Coconut Health Scientific Papers

Diet is the single most important factor under our control in health and the prevention of disease. In sharp contrast to only 10 years ago, health authorities today are recommending patients to replace their regular cooking oils with Virgin Coconut Oil to fight obesity, reduce the build-up of oxidized cholesterol in the arteries and to maintain immune health.

Coconut Health Science ArticlesWhat has caused this complete 180° shift in attitudes to Virgin Coconut Oil? We are faced with a dietary crisis globally that has forced a full rethink on the outdated food pyramid model and recommendations of the past 40 years. Cutting-edge nutritional experts agree that modern diets contain far too much refined carbohydrates as well as an excess of Omega 6 cooking oils that rapidly oxidize upon heating and contribute to free radical damage and inflammation in our bodies. As a result of this change in dietary perceptions, there is an increased appreciation that coconut products are in fact functional foods that have multiple health benefits and can play a role in preventing much of the damage done from the incorrect dietary information of these past 40 years. This is most evident in those communities that consume more Coconut Oil and Coconut Milk having not only lower serum cholesterol but also lower obesity rates and lower coronary heart disease rates, in both prevalence and mortality.
