How is Diabetes Caused and How Coconut Oil Helps Treat and Prevent One
How is diabetes caused? Believe it or not, diabetes is almost entirely caused by poor diet and lack of exercise.
Contrary to popular belief, diabetes is not a disease of blood sugar. Diabetes is a disease of nutrition and it is the science of nutrition that must treat it.
Each cell in your body requires a steady supply of either glucose or fatty acids to keep them alive and power metabolic functions. Without sufficient glucose, cells weaken and die.
Insulin is essential because it acts like a key to a lock. Every cell has a locked door that needs to be unlocked to allow glucose to enter. If the lock is no good and breaks, the key (insulin) becomes useless and the door (cell) stays padlocked. Cells starve even though there is adequate blood glucose available. That’s diabetes!
There are many believed individual causes of this dreadful metabolic disorder. But if you’ll look closely, you’ll notice that virtually all of the following factors come from having a “poor diet” and “lacking exercise.”
- Elevated blood triglyceride (Fat) levels
- Obesity or being overweight
- Sedentary lifestyle
- High-Fat diet
- Drug induced
By exercising regularly and eating right according to your metabolic type, you absolutely can take control of diabetes.
MCFAs Don’t Need Insulin!
Coconut oil is one of the best foods a diabetic can eat. Heck, it is one of the best foods a human being can eat! It can feed cells without insulin because it is the richest natural source of Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) on the planet.
Unlike Long Chain Fatty Acids (LCFA) and glucose, MCFAs don’t need insulin to nourish your cells. These rare fat molecules can unlock, without assistance, and enter the double membrane of the energy producing organs (mitochondria) of your cells.
It doesn’t matter if your pancreas is not producing enough insulin (Type 1) or if your cells are insulin resistant (Type 2). MCFAs can still fuel your cells!
MCFA-rich coconut oil stimulates metabolism and helps improve insulin secretion, insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance. Priceless for diabetics dependent on daily insulin injections.
So, how is diabetes caused? You now know the answer to that. Exercise religiously and eat a diet suitable to your nutritional type. Minimize, if not forget, processed foods.
Use coconut oil daily and rest assured YOUR cells are getting the nourishment they need.
