Coconut oil is a natural food source that is rich in medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). Medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil are compared with powerful antibiotics. They are also known to be effective in killing the bacteria which can cause infection in the throat and nose, including pneumonia, ear infections, stomach ulcers, venereal disease and tooth decay.
Coconut oil consists mainly of saturated fatty acids , which have amounted to 94%, but the amount of medium-chain fatty acids is greater than 60%. Coconut oil is composed of 45% to 52% of Lauric acid (12 chain saturated fat), 4% to 8% of Capric acid (10 chain saturated fat), 5% to 10% of Caprylic acid (8 chain saturated fat) and 0.5% to 1% of Caproic acid (6 chain saturated fat), all while capturing and cause triglyceride molecules, and make coconut oil has antimicrobial properties.
These components can not be found in all vegetable and animal fats, including butter, except that we find these elements in human breast’s milk and milk from animal mammals. Milk of these animals will have medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that can protect infants from germs that are harmful and it is easy to digest. Mothers who eat coconut oil will increase the amount of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in her milk that protect and nurture her baby.
The results of the study in the laboratory showed that the medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut oil have anti-viruses that cause influenza, measles, herpes, hepatitis C and HIV, including the bacteria that cause. stomach ulcers, strep throat, pneumonia, sinusitis, otitis, rheumatic fever, dental cavities, food poisoning, urinary tract infections, falls, gonorrhea, etc. There are many researchers and hospitals that are patented formula derived from medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil for this purpose (Enig, 1999).
Now you should be able to decide how to use coconut oil instead of consuming hydrogenated and processed vegetable oils which it is known that it is a source of many diseases including premature aging . Although coconut oil may not prevent or treat any of these conditions directly, but it can limit the amount of hydrogenated oil and polyunsaturated poisoning. This will help you reduce the chances of suffering from a premature aging disease.
