The value of coconut oil is impressive. Seniors and others benefit from making coconut oil a part of their daily diet.
Last year we wrote an article called Coconut oil the facts.
The facts have not changed. What was true a year ago is still true today.
The real news about coconut oil, is the number of people who agree. As coconut oil believers increase, so do the number of products, recipes and innovative uses.
Facts Still Valid
The Saturated Fat Myth
More and more articles are being written to explain the truth about saturated fats. Authority Nutrition, a ‘go to’ website for healthy food information explains that people have been eating saturated fats for a millennia or two.
It was only fifty years ago that “bad” science demonized it.
Authority Nutrition lists eight reasons why we should not worry about saturated fats. I like the science. Authority Nutrition spends the time to examine what the science really is. Their articles are precise. The data is good, They are trustworthy.
In the 8 Reasons Not To Fear Saturated Fats, they take the time to explain the LDL cholesterols and then the HDL cholesterols.
In our article last year, we touch on the two types of cholesterols. LDL is often called the bad cholesterol and HDL is called good cholesterol. Reading about saturated fats we learn that even the ‘bad’ LDL, is not the problem many want to make it.
Coconut oil is a saturated fat.
The new science that allows us to think like people did thousands of year ago, has proven that natural oils like Coconut oil are healthy.
One writer calls coconut oil one of nature’s true healing Superfoods.
Cooking with oil
When reading through an article on cooking oils, specifically deep frying, I learned why certain oils are better than others. Factors considered included the stability of cooking oils as well as cooking temperatures.
When all was said and done, The number one oil for deep frying was Coconut oil. Read the study here.
Other Benefits Of Coconut Oil
Our previous article addressed the value of coconut oil in reducing belly fat. It hasn’t changed. The properties of Coconut Oil allows for certain calories to burn faster when levels of the saturated fat in coconut oil are present.
Last year we reported that a daily one ounce dose of coconut oil can aid in reducing belly fat.
The example we reported, cited that women had a significant loss of belly fat in just twelve weeks.
Men taking a similar dose lost an inch of belly fat in only four weeks. There was no exercise regime as a part of the study.
We recently reported on a very beneficial plan for burning belly fat. In our article and review piece, Seniors Lose Fat Fast – Lean Belly Breakthrough, we reported on a very sensible plan to quickly reduce belly fat.
Belly fat can be dangerous. It is the worst form of fat we can have in our body. The fact that coconut oil is a way to reduce the dangerous fat does not mean that other diet measures should be ignored.
We did a review piece here on the 2 Week Diet. While the diet is not an easy one, nor is it traditional, it does in fact, work. Those who are not successful usually abandon the plan early before they achieve results.
The point of mentioning the 2 Week Diet plan is how coconut oil can help in finding success in just two weeks.
Coconut oil helps in two ways. It is a natural fighter of belly fat as mentioned here. It is also a natural appetite suppressor. Those taking an ounce a day, consume fewer calories.

Back To Coconut Oil
There may be no greater health issue facing seniors than that of losing memory. We all know someone suffering from Alzheimer’s. It is the most common form of dementia.
A line of thought believes that Alzheimer’s patients have less ability to use carbohydrates as an energy source in the brain. A solution may be to substitute ketones as the energy source.
The belief is, ketones can help brain cells to function better, lessening the effects of Alzheimer’s.
The fatty acids in Coconut oil can increase blood levels of ketones. The effect is to supply more energy to malfunctioning brain cells.
Studies seem to indicate that by consuming the fatty acids in coconut oil, there is a reaction in the body affecting ketones.
The studies support the theory that by taking Coconut oil, the people studied, consumed fewer calories during the day. An example pointed to men taking coconut oil in the morning, consumed fewer calories at lunch. All of it of course, supports weight loss.
