National health organization questions the health claims associated with Coconut oil. I made this video in my car because I couldn’t wait another moment to get the word out.
There is a news story that everyone is asking me for my opinion on. A popular health organization has come out with a report that says coconut oil has never been or will ever be healthy. I have such a hard time with reports like this because there’s no science to back it up, only agenda. So, when I’m faced with stories like this I have to go to the facts.
Facts number one: HDL cholesterol is increased by eating saturated fat (of course the quality of the fat matters).
Fact number two: HDL over triglyceride is a better indicator of heart health.
Fact number three: coconut oil LOWERS triglycerides and increases HDL. Two things we want.
Fact number four: The American Heart Association promotes the use of vegetable oils.
Fact number five: it is been proven time and time again the vegetable oils are so inflammatory and horrible for your health.
Fact number six: there’s something wrong when someone promotes vegetable oils and says coconut oil is unhealthy…
I’ll be turning the other way on this one and ignore this crazy news story.
Here is another video (not made by me) highlighting things perfectly. Also, it’s hilarious.
I hope that helps!
