Coconut oil helps your energy level:
oil speeds up metabolism encouraging the burning of
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 the pancreas, liver and
digestive system, coconut oil stimulates the metabolic
system and is excellent for those with thyroid problems.
Since coconut oil will actually speed up metabolism, your body will
burn more calories in a day. This will contribute to
weight loss, and you'll have more energy. Meanwhile,
studies have shown the opposite for unsaturated fats: they
cause hypothyroidism and lower metabolic rate.

disease-fighting fatty acid derivative monolaurin that
babies make from the lauric acid they get from mother's
Coconut Oil for Cirrhosis and Hepatitis C
The liver is one of the most important organs of the body. It
detoxifies, builds proteins and fats, secretes hormones,
stores vitamins and minerals, produces bile necessary for
digestion, and a hundred or so other functions vital for
maintaining proper health. Both Hepatitis C and cirrhosis
can be fatal. Researchers have been finding coconut oil to
be of great benefit to liver health. The medium chain
fatty acids in Virgin Coconut Oil go straight to the liver
from the digestive tract. The anti-microbial fatty acids
can then clean the liver of harmful micro-organisms as
well as protect it from free-radical reactions. Research
has shown that in the laboratory, medium chain fatty acids
are effective against Hepatitis C infections. Virgin
Coconut Oil will also help with cirrhosis. A few studies
have shown both natural palm and coconut oils to be
effective in preventing alcohol-induced cirrhosis and, as

Dr. Mercola's opinion on Soy
Soy is difficult to avoid, because they put soy in all kinds of
processed foods, even health foods. I switched to Almond

Almond milk that doesn’t have soy in the ingredients –
