Coconut Oil Malnutrition: The Right Oil for Proper Nutrition
The coconut oil malnutrition association is more like a DISassociation. Coconut oil has never in the past, does not in the present, and will never contribute to malnutrition in the future. It’s just impossible. Why?
Because each and every molecule of coconut oil has its role in nourishing your body. And with plentiful Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) leading the way, malnutrition doesn’t stand a sick chance.
I believe mother’s milk is one food that towers above all other foods, including the mighty coconut oil. It was designed to supply all the nutrients babies require early in their lives.
Guess what? MCFAs are an important component of breast milk, particularly lauric acid. Coconut oil is nature’s richest source of MCFAs.
Lauric acid is by far the most abundant MCFA found in coconut oil. Monolaurin, the monoglyceride of lauric acid, can kill a wide range of disease-causing organisms that include viruses, bacteria and fungi.
A four-month study was conducted here in the Philippines involving children divided into two groups. Each group was given identical diets except for the fat. One group was given soybean oil and the other coconut oil.
At the end of the study, the group that received coconut oil gained weight significantly quicker and improved their nutritional level. Coconut oil’s ability to make more nutrients from the foods you eat is like eating a multivitamin and mineral supplement.
Do you have digestive problems? Coconut oil can help because it doesn’t need digestive enzymes and bile to be digested. Fats are indispensable for the proper digestion and absorption of many vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
