 Scientific studies confirm the benefits of coconut oil

Some studies show the ability of coconut oil to control cravings for food and appetite.

A 2009 study at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Australia showed that a diet rich in Coconut Oil protects against insulin resistance in muscle and fat. According to the study: “A diet rich in coconut oil, which contains many fatty acids of Medium-Chain(1), also prevents the accumulation of body fat caused by other types of diet rich in Long-Chain fatty acids(2) of similar energy charge.”

 

A study was conducted in 2011 related to capric acid, one of the Medium-Chain Triglycerides present in coconut oil. This natural fatty acid can serve as a regulator of blood glucose levels(3).

 

“The Lauric acid present in Coconut Oil can protect against the dyslipidemia induced by diabetes.” That is, coconut oil protects from the concentrations of lipids in the blood.

Coconut oil regulates blood sugar

Coconut oil has a very low GI (glycemic index) of about 35. For example, the glycemic index of glucose is 100 (it is the highest value in the table) and white bread has a value of 69 or cooked carrots is 92, the greater measure of the highest glucose in our blood. This GI helps prevent fluctuations in blood sugar by regulating the amount of insulin produced with the amount of sugar in the blood. Its consumption improves glucose control and even reverts insulin resistance.
