      how can I incorporate coconut oil to the diet of a metabolic syndrom person? OUr doctor just gave my husban d the medicine and I deduced that he had metabolic syndrom because his mom died of it, and the symptoms. Then I asked him and he corraborated that that was the diagnosis. Now, He did not? educate me about the synd. I just researched. But this is new to me. Can you give me some hints on how to use it for him.Thank you!

      Coconut oil is good? for people with metabolic syndrome because it boosts metabolism and studies show it preferentially removes fat from the abdominal area which is the most metabolically active fat that causes M. syndrome. It’s important to reverse this is its early stages as it eventually leads to diabetes. I recommend traditionally processed, organic coconut oil. A tablespoon a day is a good dose and it can be added to foods drinks, or used in cooking as it is heat stable. Good luck. Dr. G.

      I actually went out and bought coconut oil after watching this video. I didn’t skimp either. Extra virgin, cold pressed and organic. Good stuff. I might? be crazy but it seems as though I have much more energy since I started taking it.

      What about? coconut oil for use as an anti-virul/anti bacterial? Its said to heal viruses from sexually transmitted to colds. What are your thoughts on this.?

      @BestVideoResponse I’m not surprised at a boost in energy.? Coconut oil is rich in medium chain triglycerides which are burned for energy rather than stored.

      @lavenderbudtree Monolaurin formed from lauric acid in coconut oil has antiviral, antibacterial and anti parasitic properties. Preliminary studies in? humans for infections, I believe, are showing mixed results. It is another possible benefit however. I thought with those properties it would make a good underarm deodorant. I found that for me, it wasn’t that effective.

      @NaturalFoodsDiet? I noticed my lipomas have flattened out since I’ve started eating it. I hope they continue to flatten or better yet disappear! Thanks for messaging me.

      Thank you for your reply. I have been using the same product as one would eat, just the pure oil. I was wondering if rubbing it on? the skin helps with moving belly fat or if one must eat it for that?
