Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid, which is known for being anti-viral, antibacterial and anti-fungal. Coconut oil is also being used by thyroid sufferers to increase body metabolism, and to lose weight. Virgin coconut oil is also used for making natural soaps and other health products, as it is one of the healthiest things one can put on their skin.
At one time coconut oil received negative press in the US because of its high level of saturated fat. However, modern research has shown that not all saturated fats are alike and that the fatty acids in coconut oil, the medium chain triglycerides, do not raise serum cholesterol or contribute to heart disease, but are in fact very healthy. Also, some negative studies done on coconut oil in the past was done on hydrogenated coconut oil, which has been altered from its original form. Other studies have clearly shown that traditional Asian cultures that eat significant amounts of coconut in their diet do not suffer from modern diseases seen in western cultures that promote a low-fat diet.
Much research on the nutritional and medicinal benefits on coconut oil has surfaced in recent years. Much of that research has been done by Dr. Mary Enig. Dr. Enig has classified coconuts as a "functional food," which provides health benefits over and beyond the basic nutrients. She has specifically identified lauric acid as a key ingredient in coconut products:
"Approximately 50% of the fatty acids in coconut fat are lauric acid. Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty acid, which has the additional beneficial function of being formed into monolaurin in the human or animal body. Monolaurin is the anti-viral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal monoglyceride used by the human or animal to destroy lipid coated viruses such as HIV, herpes, cytomegalovirus, influenza, various pathogenic bacteria including listeria monocytogenes and heliobacter pylori, and protozoa such as giardia lamblia. Some studies have also shown some antimicrobial effects of the free lauric acid."
As a "functional food," coconut oil is now being recognized by the medical community as a powerful tool against immune diseases. Several studies have been done on its effectiveness, and much research is currently being done on the incredible nutritional value of pure coconut oil.

Coconut Oil: A Dietary Hero Misidentified as a Culprit
After years of having been a victim of mistaken identity, coconut oil is finally having its reputation cleared. Along with its tropical-oil cousins, palm oil and palm kernel oil, coconut oil was long considered a prime suspect in potentially lethal heart disease. After a relentless campaign drummed up against it by the "food police" at the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), this vital, upstanding nutrient was 'run out of town' by dietitians. But it turns out that the case against it was based on tainted evidence - even while the real cardiovascular culprits, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, were permitted until quite recently to go on robbing us of our collective health.
As has happened with other wrongfully accused suspects, more sophisticated and comprehensive research has finally uncovered the truth - that the charge that this naturally saturated fat posed a hazard to our hearts was based on a misinterpretation of four-decade-old animal studies. Those studies, as Dr. Robert Atkins points out, actually used coconut oil that had been artificially hydrogenated, resulting in a molecular distortion of fatty acids that converted them into harmful trans fats which raised blood-cholesterol levels. In actuality, Pacific islanders who regularly use coconut oil as a dietary staple have an extremely low rate of heart disease.
In fact, far from being a threat to our cardiovascular systems, it turns out that coconut oil is actually a life-saver. That's because it's a prime source of a key disease-fighting substance lauric acid the same one found in mother's milk that helps protect newborns against a broad range of pathogens (and, in fact, is now regarded as an important immune-booster for AIDS patients). In addition, various studies have shown heart patients recovering after being fed coconut oil, as is noted by Mary G. Enig, Ph.D., an internationally renowned nutritionist/biochemist who is a staunch advocate of coconut oil's benefits.
