Coconut Oil Could Help With Bone Loss That Can Ultimately Lead To Bone Thinning Disease Osteoporosis
Study reveals how coconut oil can help prevent bone loss
However, research has demonstrated that coconut oil could help prevent this bone loss. A study published in the Hindawi journal shows that virgin coconut oil could be a natural way of treating the bone thinning disease. The study is particularly relevant to post-menopausal women as this is a time when the estrogen levels decline and this can pave the way to the development of osteoporosis.
The study, which was carried out by the University Kebangsaan Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur, set out to investigate the theory that oxidative stress and free radicals could contribute to the development of osteoporosis. The researchers wanted to discover if supplementing the diet with antioxidants could help prevent or reduce the risk of developing the disease.
During the trial, the scientists fed female rats with virgin coconut oil; coconut oil was chosen due to its high antioxidant content. It was discovered that virgin coconut oil could reverse the effects of estrogen deficiency on the bone structure and that virgin coconut oil could help to restore bone volume. It was also found that supplementing the diet with virgin coconut oil was as effective as taking calcium.
The scientists believe that the effectiveness of coconut oil in preventing bone loss is due to the antioxidant properties of virgin coconut oil. However, more research is needed before it can be determined how much virgin coconut oil would need to be consumed every day in order for it to be effective, but the researchers say that using coconut oil could provide an "interesting approach" to preventing bone loss in post-menopausal women.
