Health Benefit of Coconut Oil
I have for years encouraged my clients to use coconut oil for the shear fact of it many health benefits. Here are some example of what some studies have linked coconut oil to the following health benefits:
- High lauric acid content can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. It doesn’t increase LDL and helps keep arteries flexible and prevent atherosclerosis
- Studies show that coconut oil may help increase thyroid health because of its unique combination of nourishing properties and the fact that it travels directly to the liver without the need for hormones or enzymes in digestion
- Coconut oil can help boost metabolism. Since it travels directly to the liver, it is used for energy and not stored as fat. It also helps a feeling of satiety and can assist in weight loss.
- Can increase bone strength by allowing better absorption of calcium, vitamin D, and other minerals
- It’s antifungal properties have been shown to help reduce candida and yeast in the body and fight yeast infections
- Can help fight infection and flu due to its antibacterial, antiviral and antimicrobial properties
Keep this last bullet point in mind, since we are still in the winter season, many people are starting to get flu like symptoms. When I see this happening, I reach for my coconut oil… If you are like me I cannot afford to get sick…
So how much should you take to fight a flu?
Here are some guidelines:
If you’re already a seasoned virgin coconut oil eater…
Take 1 tablespoon every 2 hrs while you’re awake. By taking so much on the first day, the flu symptoms may subside dramatically or even vanish within a day.
But if you feel that’s too much and too frequent for you, you can reduce to taking 1/2 tablespoon every 3 hours. Or, at least take 3 tablespoons per day, every day and spread out the amount like this – 1 Tbsp at breakfast, 1 at lunch and 1 at dinner.
Your antibodies are essentially outnumbered, so you need at least that amount of virgin coconut oil to boost your immunity level. However, if you feel you can increase to 4 tablespoons or even more, by all means.
But make sure you spread out the amount. Taking 3 or 4 tablespoons (or even just 2 Tbsps) in one sitting may make you feel nauseous or cause some peculiar reaction in your stomach as coconut oil expels toxins (detox). Detox is good no doubt, but it may appear too strong for some people to take it, so it’s best to spread out the doses.
If you’re a first-timer…
Take 2 tablespoons for first 48 hours – 1 Tbsp at breakfast and 1 at dinner.
Although virgin coconut oil may initially cause diarrhea-like effect on first-timers (because your body system has yet to adapt to its bowel-loosening effect), as the medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in the oil that fight flu viruses are the same as those that loosen your bowels, you should not feel the runs easily since most of the MCFAs are busy fighting and killing flu viruses, leaving very little behind to loosen your bowels.
Please note that because you’re taking only 2 tablespoons for the first 48 hours, the flu-fighting effect may not turn out as strong as when you take 3 tablespoons. However, just to be on the safe side, eat only 2 tablespoons for the first 48 hours. And then observe your body for any unusual reaction.
If you feel okay with your stomach (no diarrhea-like symptom) and you don’t feel nauseous at all, you’re safe and move on to increasing the dosage to 3 tablespoons per day after that, like this – 1 Tbsp at breakfast, 1 at lunch and 1 at dinner. And stick to just 3 tablespoons daily until your flu is completely cured.
Which coconut oil should I use?
Simply choose virgin coconut oil for your flu treatment and nothing else. I highly recommend one from Purium, the product is called Organic Tropic Oil – 16 oz.(SKU: 2040) It retails for only $17.50 per jar of 16fl oz. However, since I’m a wholesaler…
