– Coconut oil is good for hair

The topical use of coconut oil plays an important role in preventing and regenerating damaged hair and is an excellent natural conditioner. This is primarily due to its hydrophobic characteristics (which prevent the penetration of water and particles from the surrounding air into the hair strands) and their effectiveness in reducing protein loss.
One study has shown that capillary swelling is limited by the presence of coconut oil, which has a greater penetrating power when compared to mineral oils. As the swelling/discoloration process is extremely damaging to the hair (because it causes fatigue to the hair fibers, weakening them), it was found that coconut oil provides better protection to damaged hair than other oils.

Another study has shown that coconut oil helps reduce protein loss by binding to the protein molecules of the hair fibers, supporting them. In practical terms, this translates into healthier and more lucid hair. It is no coincidence that many hair conditioners and beauty products use coconut oil in their formula. However, due to their dilution and mixing with other ingredients, they end up not having the same effect as the application of pure coconut oil.
– Coconut oil helps to minimize the effects of osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a progressive disease. As you get older, the bone regeneration capacity decreases and they lose density. This condition is more common in women than in men because of the reduction of estrogen after menopause.

A recent study suggests that supplementing the diet with coconut oil may reverse the effects of estrogen deficiency, including loss of bone density. Antioxidant compounds (so-called polyphenols ) present in coconut oil have the potential to maintain bone structure and prevent loss of density due to hormonal changes.
– Coconut oil is especially effective in reducing abdominal fat

Considering that coconut oil helps to burn fats and reduce hunger, it would be expected that their consumption could have a significant impact on body measurements.
What the studies reveal is that it is particularly effective in reducing the famous ” tires ” that accumulate in the abdominal cavity and around the internal organs. This type of fat is the most dangerous of all and is associated with a number of diseases linked to poor diet and sedentary lifestyle.

The waist circumference is easy to measure and a good control parameter for abdominal fat assessment. In two studies in patients with abdominal obesity, a daily dose of 30 ml of coconut oil was administered. In the first one, performed in 40 women, there was a significant reduction in both BMI (body mass index) and waist circumference after a period of 3 months. In the second study, performed in 20 men, an average reduction of almost 3 cm was observed in the waist circumference after only 1 month.
It should be borne in mind that these results were obtained simply by adding coconut oil to the normal diet of the patients. If this was associated with a physical exercise routine or a calorie restricted diet, the results would probably be even more significant.

Perhaps you already know some of the benefits of coconut oil, but do you know the top 10, and what scientific studies do they rely on?

– Coconut Oil Helps Improve Cholesterol Levels

Coconut oil is full of saturated fats, which, contrary to what was thought in the past, do not damage the sanguineous lipid. In fact, saturated fats raise good cholesterol (HDL) and turn bad (LDL) into a benign.
Good and bad cholesterol
In a study of 40 women, coconut oil reduced the total cholesterol level along with LDL, and increased HDL. Other studies have shown that in addition to reducing total cholesterol and LDL, virgin coconut oil also plays an important antioxidant and improves blood clotting.
This improvement in long-term cardiovascular risk factors can mean the difference between a healthy heart and an infarcted heart. Let the inhabitants of the archipelago of Tokelau, in Polynesia, where the heart and vascular diseases are practically nonexistent: more than half of their diet comes from the coconut.
– Coconut oil helps to burn fats

?Obesity is not only a matter of quantity of calories but also of its quality. Coconut oil does not contain the long chain saturated fats present in most high-fat foods. No, the fat present in coconut oil is composed of medium-chain triglycerides (TCM).

The MCT can increase energy expenditure when compared with the same amount of calories from fat longer chain (common in other types of oil, including olive oil).
Man with body on fire
A respected clinical-nutritional study found that daily intake of 15 to 30 grams of MCT produces an increase in energy expenditure of 5%. That is, regular intake of coconut oil can lead to significant weight loss in the long run.
