Shocking discovery about daily consumption of coconut oil for weight loss and reduced blood sugar…

Dr. Eveangel Savage, Ph.D.

My curiosity  takes me on a journey to discover new healthy and enjoyable weight loss methods that I can implement daily.

In pursuit of my curiosity today…  I heard many wonderful things about the benefits of coconut oil.  I use coconut on my hair after washing and seal it with a leave in conditioner.  I literally do nothing to my hair except use my fingers to detangle the hair as I wash to remove build up and normal hair loss.  There are many organic facts about the benefits of coconut oil.

I have been actively improving my health and weight loss through daily exercise and dietary changes.  This journey has turned my lens to the benefits of coconut oil.  At 55 my body just does not process insulin like it did in my youthful days. While there are many blogs and commentary discussing the benefits of coconut oil, I rely on  relevant research studies because I actually understand the scientific method that have been used and how to measure the validity of the methods. So here is what I found out about the benefits of coconut oil…  

Aside from the amazing results with my natural hair, the benefits of coconut oil include:  skin care, weight loss, treating yeast infection, improved digestive and immune health, Coconut oil is creating wonders and gaining popularity around the world.  

For those living in tropical countries, daily consumption of coconut is normal.  Until recently, the benefits of coconut oil on human health had not been studied.  In a comparison study, Vijayakumar et al., (2018) studied the effects of saturated fatty acid and fiber versus monounsaturated fatty acid from groundnut oil and groundnuts on insulin, glucose, and human measurements.  Using a random sample of healthy volunteers in two groups, one with standard diet along with 100 g of fresh coconut or an equivalent amount of ground nut oil for a 90-days.

After the supplement period, insulin, glucose, blood pressure, and human body measurements were made.  According to Vijayakumar et al., (2018), the benefits of coconut for weight loss were significant in the coconut group.  There was significant reduction in the fasting blood sugar for both groups and finally, a significant increase in diastolic pressure for the groundnut group.  The benefits of coconut saturated oil is proven to reduce blood glucose levels and body weight in normal healthy individuals!!!
