Dr. Mercola Coconut Oil

Dr Oz asks Mercola "what have you found in coconut oil that is so profound in our health?"

Dr Mercola; "Coconut oil is interesting because one of the new advances is we learned that it may be useful in treatment of Alzheimer's Disease and we have an epicdemic of alzheimer's, not only treatment but most likely the prevention and this is because we have learned that the brain has an alternate fuel source, it actually uses something called Keytone bodies which is the derivative of fat break down, unlike glucose it can use this an alternate fuel supply to feed the brain as it's being starved and the neurons are dying."

Dr Oz; "Once we treat the alzheimer's with cocnut oil, and I do have to agree its not as dangerous as to some other things you would give somebody, so how do you give it ? how much?"

Dr. Mercola; " With alzheimer's the materials are on the side and there have been relatively few studies, but even if you really large doses like 3 tablespoons which you would not use normally, for a typical adult of coconut oil for alzheimer's is 1 -3 teaspoons. Coconut Oil interestingly is solid in most room tempertures below 75 degrees is a solid but when it gets hot in the summer it actually forms as a liquid."

Dr Oz: Coconut Oil Skin Secret from Belize
- The first beauty secret is to use Coconut Oil on your skin to soften fine lines. Women in Jamaica even use Coconut Oil to protect their skin from the sun.

Dr Oz: Coconut Oil & Weight Loss
- Dr Oz said that the first health benefit of coconut oil is weight loss. Which is healthier - olive oil or coconut oil? Well, from a calorie perspective they both have 119 calories and 13 grams of fat per TB so there is no difference from that angle. Coconut Oil is a solid at room temperature, but becomes a liquid when you heat it, because Coconut Oil is a saturated fat (hence its bad reputation!). However, Dr Oz said that Coconut Oil is made up of Medium Chain Fatty Acids which get dissolved into your blood and metabolized by your liver with no problems. Steaks on the other hand are made up of Large Chain Fatty Acids which do not go to the liver to be metabolized and they make you fat.

Dr Oz: Coconut Oil & Eczema or Psoriasis
- Dr Oz said that the second benefit of Coconut Oil is that it treats skin conditions. Coconut Oil has been used for centuries to help cure Eczema and Psoriasis. In fact, Dr Oz likes to try Coconut Oil on just about any skin ailment because it is inexpensive and easy to try out. Coconut Oil contains Lauric Acid, which helps to fight off fungal infections too. What I try to do with my husband when his Eczema flares up is to put some Coconut Oil on his hand before going to bed and I wrap it in plastic wrap and cover it with a cotton sock. Then, in the morning it is like he had a deep skin treatment all night long.

Dr Oz: Coconut Oil & Ulcers
- Dr Oz said that the third benefit of Coconut Oil is that it treats ulcers that are caused by the H Pylori bacteria. The Lauric Acid in the Coconut Oil can help to kill off H Pylori.

Dr Oz: How Much Coconut Oil To Use Each Day
- Even though Coconut Oil has lots of health benefits, it is still high in fat and calories so you should make sure not to overdo it. Dr Oz suggested adding 1 TB of Coconut Oil to your diet every day.
