Any hydrogenated oil, such as coconut, is bad for you, it adds to your bad LDL cholesterol. Now when you go to pure, virgin, organic, non-processed (no high heat processing), non-hydrogenated coconut oil health benefits are many. The question arises Can Extra Virgin Coconut Oil really help for hair, the answer is yes, it is very helpful for hair.
Kevin Trudeau claims that it can help you shed weight, lower cholesterol and about 5 or 6 other things that it does to your body. I have not found all the research to say precisely that, but he very easily could be right.
What I have discovered in my reading is that taking at least 2 tablespoons of coconut (the great stuff) oil per day can help you prevent Alzheimer’s disease and make you generally healthier. I discovered research done by Dr. Mary Newport,
whose husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in a rather early age. . .in his 50’s I think. She could not let him go at that early age so she started looking into various studies that he possibly could qualify for.
He didn’t qualify for the studies but the merchandise they were trying to become a subject for was derived from coconut oil. They decided to try it themselves. The major coconut oil health benefit is the keystone, they not only stopped his progression but also brought back a few of the skills which he had lost.
