According to the latest laboratory research, medical experts have found that lauric acid eliminates more than 90% of colon cancer cells just after 2 days of treatment. Coconut oil is loaded with lauric acid – it’s almost half of the content of coconut oil. The most interesting thing is that the lauric acid contaminates the cancer cells by releasing intense oxidative stress. So, with this process, the lauric acid reduces the levels of glutathione in cancer cells very efficiently. The glutathione in cancer cells is used to protect them from oxidative stress.
Not many studies have pointed out the anti-cancer properties of coconut oil. But, coconut oil is known for its healing properties and benefits and it’s used by many people in the world for many years. Few medicinal studies have confirmed the fact that coconut oil is extremely efficient in eliminating bacteria, various diseases, parasites, fungi and harmful microorganisms. It’s also extremely useful with: promotes digestion, aids liver health, improves skin health, reduces inflammation and accelerates wound healing.
Some medical experts say that coconut oil can be also extremely useful in treating diabetes. This is because the coconut oil has the ability to increase the levels of HDL (the good cholesterol) in women and regulates the HDL – LDL ratio and it support weight loss efforts in men and women. Today, the coconut oil is a part of few clinical trials focused on stabilization of cholesterol levels in patients suffering from chronic heart disease. The medical experts also work on preventing and fighting Alzheimer’s disease and in stabilizing blood sugar levels and blood pressure.
This oil is unique when it comes to the presence of lauric acid. This is because the lauric acid takes about half of the coconut’s oil content. Actually, the lauric acid is a specific type of triglyceride that is very difficult to find in other foods. You should also know that the cow’s fat consists of 2% lauric acid and about 6% of human milk is lauric acid. This proves the fact that human beings need more lauric acid than other living beings.
All these scientific studies don’t mean that coconut oil is the natural cure for cancer, but it’s a reminder for all the scientists in the world, who work in this field, that Mother Nature has provided many means and tools to fight disease. And we all should invest more in the medical researches and studies of these natural remedies.
