But first, to understand how a fat can
help you enjoy a life free of illness
and weight problems, you first need to
take a little trip with me.
So let's drift back in time to World War
The War is Over we can have our Coconut Oil again!
The Japanese military occupied the Philippines
and other South Pacific islands, where bloody
battles were being fought.
The supply of coconut oil was effectively cut off
from the United States.
Although coconut oil had been popular both as a
cooking oil and ingredient in numerous food
products, the occupation continued to interrupt the
supply for several long years as the war slowly
Enter good old American ingenuity (in this case, not
so good for your health).
Manufacturers began to develop alternative sources
of cooking oils, and the polyunsaturated oils phase
was born. By the time the war was over, there was a
lot of money at stake in the promotion of these
polyunsaturated vegetable oils.
By the end of the 1950's, public opinion had turned
totally against saturated fats like butter (and
coconut oil). Saturated fats were blamed for raising
cholesterol, and cholesterol was now viewed as the
evil enemy, the culprit responsible for the steep
rise in heart disease.
Butter, eggs and coconut oil were out.
The new vegetable oils were in ... and erroneously
viewed as "heart-healthy".
Coconut oil continued to be demonized by the
vegetable oil industry throughout the ensuing
decades. Adding insult to injury, the soybean
industry began to condemn the use of tropical oils,
particularly coconut oil.
And I'm sure you realize the reason why --
competition ... and millions and millions of
Unfortunately, the tropical oil industry, centered
in poorer nations like the Philippines and
Indonesia, could not afford to counter the negative
propaganda spread by rich American industrial
Science and good health took a back seat to profits,
as they have on more than one occasion ...
The Hidden Truth About Coconut Oil
The truth about coconut oil is obvious to anyone who
has studied the health of those who live in
traditional tropical cultures, where coconut has
been a nutritious diet staple for thousands of
Heart disease and obesity are rare in tropical
populations who follow traditional diets high in
coconut oil and coconut products.
Back in the 1930's, Dr. Weston Price, a dentist,
traveled throughout the South Pacific, examining
traditional diets and their effect on dental and
overall health. He found that those eating diets
high in coconut products were healthy and trim,
despite the high fat concentration in their diet.
Similarly, in 1981, researchers studied populations
of two Polynesian atolls. Coconut was the chief
source of caloric energy in both groups. The
results, published in the American Journal of
Clinical Nutrition, demonstrated that vascular
disease was uncommon in both populations. There was
no evidence that the high saturated fat intake had a
harmful effect in these populations.
Sadly, it was not until our Western diet began to
intrude on these coconut-eating cultures that
residents began to experience significant problems
with heart disease, diabetes, obesity and tooth
decay -- the same problems that are so widespread
Why Coconut Oil Deserves Your Respect
(and Your Body Deserves Coconut Oil)
So, now that you have heard the history behind
coconut oil's unfortunate "fall from grace", you
should also know today's good news: coconut oil is
finally beginning to get the respect it deserves.
The numerous health benefits of coconut oil are
finally again reaching the mainstream.
Reducing your risk of heart disease ...
Promoting weight loss when and if you need it ...
Supporting your immune system health ...
Reducing your risk of cancer and degenerative
Supporting a healthy metabolism ...
Providing an immediate energy source for you ...
Helping to keep your skin healthy and prevent
age-related damage ...
Supporting the proper functioning of your thyroid
Preventing infections due to harmful bacteria,
viruses, yeasts and other micro-organisms ...
With all of these fantastic perks from pure coconut
oil, it probably won't surprise you to ...
Peek Inside My Pantry To See The
Only Oil I Cook With ...
I must confess ...
"Coconut oil is transforming my health! Not only am
I losing weight, but my skin (more ashen and acne
prone), hair (damaged with spit ends), and nails
(soft and brittle) are healthier. And it didn't take
that long. I just put the coconut oil in fruit
smoothies in the morning. Imagine what health
improvements my body would have if I (and I will)
increase my coconut oil intake to cooking with it!
"Also, my biggest health success with coconut oil
has been that my immune system dramatically
improving: way less fatigued, sleeping less,
hormones evening out, and able to ward off
flu's/viruses/colds much better. And, given my
body's health in life so far, that speaks volumes!
Thank you, Dr.
-- J Newman from Monterey, CA
If you could peek inside my pantry, you would find
two oils that I use in food preparation.
The first, extra-virgin olive oil, is a healthy
monounsaturated fat. It works great as a salad
However, it is not the healthiest oil to cook with.
Due to its chemical structure, cooking makes it
susceptible to oxidative damage and increases the
risk of disorders such heart disease, among others.
And polyunsaturated fats, which include common
vegetable oils such as corn, soy, safflower,
sunflower and canola, are absolutely the worst oils
to use in cooking. Omega-6 oils are especially prone
to this because of all the double bonds they have
which are highly susceptible to heat damage.
Reason #1: Most people believe that frying creates
trans fats. That is not the major problem; although
some are created, they are relatively minor. There
are FAR more toxic chemicals produced by frying
omega-6 oils than trans fats.
Frying destroys the antioxidants in oils and as such
oxidizes the oils and causes cross-linking,
cyclization, double-bond shifts, fragmentation and
polymerization of oils that cause far more damage
than trans fats.
Reason #2: They contribute to the overabundance of
omega-6 fats in your diet, and the imbalance of the
omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. As you know from my
extensive writing on this subject, excessive omega-6
fats contribute to many chronic diseases and are
essentially a prescription for poor health.
There is only one oil that is stable enough to
resist heat-induced damage, while it also helps you
prevent heart disease, lower cholesterol and even
lose weight -- coconut oil.
So, whenever you need an oil to cook with, use
coconut oil instead of butter, olive oil, vegetable
oil or any other type of oil called for in recipes.
Curiously, coconut oil contains the most saturated
fat of all edible oils. We continue to be inundated
by media portrayals of saturated fats as dangerous,
but now you know better ...
Surprise! Coconut Oil Is
Good For Your Heart ...
FACT: Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the
U.S. And heart disease is often a silent killer. The
first sign of cardiovascular disease is commonly a
heart attack, and sadly, over one third of heart
attacks are fatal.
And despite the propaganda, the truth is this: it is
unsaturated fats that are primarily involved in
heart disease, not the saturated fats, as you have
been led to believe.
The U.S. Department of Health and the FDA estimate
that artificially hydrogenated trans-fats -- the
type found in fast food, processed foods and your
favorite pastries -- are ultimately responsible for
a huge number of fatal heart attacks every year.
These dangerous unsaturated fats are the ones you
should ban from your diet, not naturally pure and
healthy coconut oil, which contains very few fats
with highly perishable double bonds and also has NO
As you saw earlier, countries that subsist on a
coconut-based diet rarely have heart disease.
Additionally, many medical studies indicate that
heart disease patients who are fed coconut oil get
Although polyunsaturated fats encourage the
formation of blood clots by increasing platelet
stickiness, coconut oil decreases the tendency for
platelets to stick together and form clots.
According to Mary Enig, Ph.D., the nation's leading
expert on fats and oils:
"Coconut oil has a unique role in the diet as an
important physiologically functional food. The
health and nutritional benefits that can be derived
from consuming coconut oil have been recognized in
many parts of the world for centuries.
A review of the diet/heart disease literature
relevant to coconut oil clearly indicates that
coconut oil is at worst neutral with respect to
atherogenicity of fats and oils, and in fact is
likely to be a beneficial oil for prevention and
treatment of some heart disease.
Additionally, coconut oil provides a source of
antimicrobial lipids for individuals with
compromised immune systems, and is a non-promoting
fat with respect to chemical carcinogenesis."
A Fat Is A Fat ... Or Is It?
All fats are not equal.
And just so we're clear, the terms "fats" and "oils"
are often used interchangeably, but fat is more
correctly considered solid at room temperature,
while oils are liquid ... but what's most important
is the structure.
The unique health benefits of coconut oil are
directly related to its chemical structure, or more
precisely, the length of its fatty acid chains.
Coconut oil is comprised of medium-chain fatty acids
(MCFAs), also called medium-chain triglycerides or
Coconut oil is nature's richest source of these
By contrast, most common vegetable or seed oils are
comprised of long chain fatty acids (LCFAs), also
known as long-chain triglycerides or LCTs.
There are several reasons to explain why long-chain
fatty acids are not as healthy for you as the MCFAs
in coconut oil:
LCFAs are difficult for the body to break down --
they must be packaged with lipoproteins or carrier
proteins and require special enzymes for digestion.
LCFAs put more strain on the pancreas, the liver and
the entire digestive system.
LCFAs are predominantly stored in the body as fat.
(That's why most people buy into the myth that fats
are automatically "fattening".)
LCFAs can be deposited within arteries in lipid
forms such as cholesterol.
On the other hand, however, the MCFAs in coconut oil
are healthier, because:
MCFAs are smaller. They permeate cell membranes
easily, and do not require lipoproteins or special
enzymes to be utilized effectively by your body.
MCFAs are easily digested, thus putting less strain
on your digestive system. This is especially
important for those of you with digestive or
MCFAs are sent directly to your liver, where they
are immediately converted into energy rather than
being stored as fat.
MCFAs in coconut oil can actually stimulate your
body's metabolism, leading to weight loss.
Coconut Oil Is The Dieter's Best Friend
If you live in the United States, you have a 55%
chance of being overweight.
And, by now, I'm sure you're aware that obesity
increases your risk of developing diabetes, heart
disease and other degenerative diseases --
effectively reducing your lifespan ... and your
quality of life.
One of the best benefits of coconut oil lies in its
ability to stimulate your metabolism.
Back in the 1940's, farmers found out about this
effect by accident when they tried using inexpensive
coconut oil to fatten their livestock.
It didn't work!
Natural compounds in ...Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
stimulate your metabolism, optimize your weight,
decrease cravings, and support a healthy thyroid
Instead, coconut oil made the animals lean, active
Now, I'm certainly not comparing you to a farm
However, many animal and human research studies have
demonstrated that replacing LCFAs with MCFAs results
in both decreased body weight and reduced fat
So, by changing the fats in your diet from the
unsaturated long-chain fatty acids found in
vegetable or seed oils to the MCFAs in coconut oil,
you may find yourself gradually losing those
unnecessary pounds with little or no effort.
The reasons are simple:
1. The long chain fats nearly always go to fat
storage, while the MCFAs are burned for energy
2. Since your metabolism speeds up with coconut oil,
you will burn more calories each day, accelerating
weight loss (and probably your
Coconut oil has often been compared to carbohydrates
in its ability to be "burned" for energy. However,
since insulin is not involved in the process of
digesting the MCFAs in coconut oil, you won't get
those carb-related spikes in your blood sugar level.
This is especially good news for those of you with
diabetes or other blood sugar issues.
In fact, the ability of MCFAs to be easily digested,
st imulate the metabolism and turned into energy has
entered the sports arena. Several studies have now
shown that MCFAs enhance physical or athletic
Additionally, research has demonstrated that, due to
its metabolic effect, coconut oil increases the
activity of the thyroid. And you've probably heard
that a sluggish thyroid is one reason why some
people are unable to lose weight, no matter what
Besides weight loss, there are other advantages to
boosting your metabolic rate. The healing process
accelerates. Cell regeneration increases to replace
old, worn-out or damaged cells. And your immune
system functions better overall.
Coconut Oil's Natural "Miracle" Ingredient: Lauric
Yes, it's true.
Nature still has a few miracles up her sleeve.
You've probably heard that breast milk is jam-packed
with nutrients and disease-fighting ingredients that
help keep babies healthy.
Well, incredibly, coconut oil contains the same
compound -- Lauric acid -- as mother's milk! And
Lauric acid is the predominant type of MCFA found in
Fortunately for our health, Lauric acid in both
breast milk and coconut oil transforms when consumed
into a substance called monolaurin, the actual
compound responsible for fighting numerous types of
Skeptical? So were a lot of scientists, who've
proceeded to test the heck out of this substance.
In fact, a great volume of research has been done
establishing the ability of Lauric acid to fight
dangerous micro-organisms -- things you don't want
to deal with -- like viruses, bacteria, yeasts,
fungi, parasites and moulds.
Outside of mother's milk, pure coconut oil is
nature's most plentiful source of infection-fighting
What researchers found was that this medium-chain
fatty acid derivative actually disrupts the lipid
(or fatty) membranes of the offending organisms.
Numerous studies have indicated that many viruses
are inactivated by medium-chain fats -- viruses like
influenza, measles, HIV, herpes and cytomegalovirus.
Bacteria like strep and staph, gonorrheae,
helicobacter pylori, salmonella and clostridium
And other "bad guys" like the yeast Candida, even
the ringworm fungus.
The results leave little room for doubt ... the
Lauric acid in coconut oil is one effortless way to
protect yourself from many types of "bugs".
...If all this wasn't enough, coconut oil has even
more tricks up its sleeve.

Saturated Fat Can
Be Good For You
During the "no-fat" craze of the past decades, all
saturated fats were marked as bad, as something to
be avoided. Knowledge was already in place to the
contrary, but as often happens, perceptions --
pushed by industries like the corn oil companies who
profited immensely from doing so -- overshadowed
science. And coconut oil, far more nutritious and
beneficial than corn, peanut, soy, safflower and the
other oils out there, nonetheless got tossed into
the "no saturated fat" overgeneralizations and
What you didn't hear is that some
saturated fats A) are necessary to human health; B)
are not the primary perpetrator of weight gain
(grains and sugars are, as you'll read in my Total
Health Program; and C) come in three classes, of
which the medium-chain can actually help you lose
weight and increase metabolism.
Coconut oil's saturated fat is of the medium-chain
fatty acid variety. These MCFAs are digested more
easily and utilized differently by the body than
other fats. In short, whereas other fats are stored
in the body's cells, the MCFAs in coconut oil are
sent directly to the liver where they are
immediately converted into energy. So when you eat
coconut oil, the body uses it immediately to make
energy rather than store it as body fat. Because
this quick and easy absorption puts less strain on
your pancreas, liver and digestive system, coconut
oil "heats up" the metabolic system and is
outstanding for those with thyroid problems.
Coconuts. The Lauric acid in coconut oil is used by
the body to make the same disease-fighting fatty
acid derivative monolaurin that babies make from the
Lauric acid they get from their mothers milk. Mary
Enig, an internationally respected expert on fats
and lipid biochemistry, and author of the "fat
Know Your Fats, provides excellent detail on the
benefits of Lauric acid in her article, "A
New Look at Coconut Oil."
Finally, coconut oil contains no dangerous
trans-fats, which are found in vegetable oils
(including olive oil), margarine, shortening and
more. Trans-fats can raise LDLs or "bad" cholesterol
levels and lead to clogged arteries, heart disease,
type-II diabetes and more, and should be avoided.

The Truth About Coconut Oil: Why it Got a Bad Rep
When it's Actually Good
Coconut oil is truly
the healthiest oil you can consume. It is rich in
Lauric acid, which is known for being antiviral,
antibacterial and antifungal, and contains no trans
fat (even olive oil has some trans fat). You can
even use it on your skin to help prevent wrinkles.
Unfortunately, there is a widespread misconception
that coconut oil is bad for you because it contains
saturated fat. To really understand the benefits of
coconut oil, I suggest you read Dr. Mary Enig and
Sally Fallon's article "The Truth About Saturated
Fat" to first dispel any lingering notions you may
have that all saturated fats are dangerous.
Fats are categorized as either short-, medium-, or
long-chain depending on how many carbon molecules
they contain. Close to two-thirds of the saturated
fat in coconut oil is made up of medium-chain fatty
acids, which have antimicrobial properties, are
easily digested by the body for quick energy, and
are beneficial to the immune system. Far from being
dangerous, the saturated fat in coconut oil is
actually health promoting.
So how could an
oil that is so good for you have gotten such a bad
reputation? The answer comes down to simple
economics and politics. Based on some flawed studies
performed over four decades ago, some of which used
primarily hydrogenated coconut oils, a powerful
anti-saturated fat movement began [pushed by the
agro-industrial lobby]. Remember--hydrogenated oils
are oils with trans-fatty acids, which have been
altered from their original chemical composition and
have been shown to raise cholesterol levels and lead
to heart disease and other health problems. You
should not consume hydrogenated oils, whether it is
coconut or another vegetable oil.
Around this time the edible oil industry began
to denounce all saturated fats and heavily promote
polyunsaturated fats such as canola, soybean,
safflower, corn, and other seed and nut oils.
However, these oils easily become rancid when
exposed to oxygen and produce large amounts of
damaging free radicals in the body. What is not
commonly known is that these oils can actually cause
aging, clotting, inflammation, cancer and weight
Fortunately, coconut oil has begun to gain
some positive media exposure as researchers realize
its health-promoting qualities. However, coconut oil
can vary widely in terms of the types of coconuts
used, the manufacturing processes used to make the
oil, and more, and all of these factors play a major
role in the effectiveness of the oil.
commercial coconut oils are RBD (refined, bleached,
and deodorized). RBD oils do contain the medium
chain fatty acids, however they also contain
chemicals used in processing...
