the efficacy and function of coconut oil

Coconut oil, also known as coconut oil, is extracted from coconut meat and is generally white or light yellow. The oil content of coconut meat is 65%-74%, and the water content is 4%-7%. Coconut oil has gained a lot of popularity in recent years as it is considered a healthy oil. Many celebrities and bloggers also recommend the use of coconut oil, because it has many benefits in our daily life. But coconut oil is high in saturated fatty acids, is it really a healthy oil? Next, Benteng Machinery will introduce to you a comprehensive analysis of the efficacy and function of coconut oil, and contraindications of coconut oil.

Ⅰ. Composition of Coconut Oil

The saturated fat content of coconut oil is as high as 80-90%, of which the most important saturated fatty acid is lauric acid (lauric acid), with a content of 47%. Another major component of coconut oil is medium-chain fatty acids, which are composed of chains of 6-12 carbon atoms.

Ⅱ. The efficacy and function of coconut oil.

1. Coconut oil is more easily absorbed and utilized by the body. Therefore, it also has a certain relief effect on constipation.

2. Reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease.

Consuming more coconut oil increased levels of “good” cholesterol in the body, but it also increase levels of total cholesterol and triglycerides. What’s more, coconut oil can raise total and “bad” cholesterol (LDL) in the body to a higher or similar level than other saturated fats (like beef fat, palm oil).

Ⅲ. Contraindications to the use of coconut oil.

1. It is not suitable to eat with cold food.

2. Do not cook with olive oil, nuts and deep-sea fish.

3. People with allergies should use it with caution.

4. Patients with hyperlipidemia should take it with caution.

Ⅳ. Summary

Because coconut oil increases blood cholesterol levels, including “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides, as well as other saturated fats. Therefore, you should not coconut oil as a heart-healthy food, you should pay attention to control the dosage of coconut oil in the diet.

Of course, I also disagree with the classification of coconut oil as “poison”, and do not use it at all. Actually, coconut oil has its own unique flavor, and as long as you stick to a healthy eating pattern, it’s okay to use a small amount of it occasionally in your cooking.
