Recent studies prove the relationship existing between coconut oil and cancer. In one study, results confirm the ability of lauric acid, a medium chained fatty acid, to kill up to 93% of colon cancer cells within 48 hours.
Here are essential things about how coconut oil can be your natural solution to prevent and help cure cancer.
Lauric Acid Content
Pure coconut oil is an excellent source of lauric acid. It contains about 50 percent lauric acid, a fat which is actually rarely found in nature.
This acid is one of the worst enemies of cancer cells. Lauric acid works like poison that kills cancer cells and prevents them to form and spread in your body.
Cancer cells thrive in a body where free radicals easily unleash their wrath. When your body produces more free radicals than it can counteract the damage, it becomes a potential host to cancer cells. What Lauric acid does is to tilt the balance in favor of antioxidants. You need antioxidants because they counteract free radical damage. Antioxidants must overpower free radicals to beat cancer.
Backed by Science
Scientific evidence proves that pure coconut oil may kill and prevent cancer cells. The thing is that these studies do not get the publicity they deserve. Perhaps the reason is that drug-based cancer treatment is big business.
In addition to the study proving how lauric acid kills 93% of colon cancer, another study confirms how coconut oil can also treat and prevent breast cancer. Results prove that virgin coconut oil is an effective adjunct treatment for breast cancer.
You will also find a video documentary on the web that shows how you can beat cancer naturally. Several professionals such as doctors, survivors, scientists, legal practitioner, have lent their experiences, competence, and opinion on the documentary.
Benefits of Saturated Fat
Coconut oil is a saturated fat. Recent studies have debunked the misconceptions about saturated fats. A good book about the results is “The Big Fat Surprise” by Nina Teicholz, a journalist by profession.
The saturated fat in coconut oil belongs to medium chain triglycerides. This type of fats is easier to digest. Further, medium chain triglycerides are the ones that can hardly trigger the formation of cancer cells.
Regulates Blood Sugar
Cancer cells need sugar to form, spread, and survive in your body. Thus, to prevent their formation and to get rid of them, deny these cells the environment they need to thrive.
Coconut oil is an effective natural remedy for managing and controlling blood sugar. It can even help in reversing type 2 diabetes. This is important since diabetes can make matter worst for cancer patients.
According to health experts at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the formation of cancer cells is one of the long-term effects of unregulated blood sugar, pre-diabetes, and type 2 diabetes.
Experts worldwide continue to explore the link between coconut oil and cancer. Use pure coconut oil as part of your cancer treatment. Note that the oil is not a substitute for other treatments that you need. It is also best to use pure coconut oil as preventive treatment for cancer.
While more research is definitely needed in the field, you can’t go wrong by starting to cook your dishes with coconut oil or add it by the spoon to your morning smoothies. Not only will it help your body prevent and fight cancer, it enables your body to absorb more nutrients from the food you eat as well.
