Experts Often Comment That Saturated Fat Is Bad Not Anymore With Coconut Oil Reasearch Reveals
Coconut oil: The best source of healthy fats
Some time ago, scientists would have advised against consuming coconut oil because of its saturated fat levels. However, the saturated fats in coconut oil are actually beneficial to the body.
Saturated fats are made up of long chain fatty acids or medium chain fatty acids. While people should be avoiding long chain fatty acids because of their association with bad health, they should be consuming medium chain fatty acids or MCTs.
The body treats MCTs completely differently to long chain fatty acids and consuming these types of fatty acids can have many positive effects on the body. Study after study has shown how beneficial these fatty acids can be, helping the body to fight many different types of disease.
When consumed, medium chain fatty acids are converted into a substance called monolaurin. Monolaurin has a proven anti-viral effect and can help to keep many viruses in check, including many common childhood viruses such as measles.
Aside from fighting viruses, coconut oil has gained a lot of media interest in recent years due to the many other health benefits that it offers. What makes coconut oil so different from many of the other varieties of oil is that coconut oil contains mainly medium chain fatty acids.
The high levels of MCTs make coconut oil a superior nutritional product to many other types of oils, and its numerous health benefits have been well documented through research, studies and clinical trials.
