65% of the U.S. population is overweight, and the main reason of it can be the underactive thyroid.
Vegetable oils burden the body with oxidative stress, and this does not occur with the coconut oil due to the fact that it is saturated and very stable. Coconut oil is processed differently in the body and does not need enzyme-dependent processes to be broken down. Moreover, coconut oil prevents T4 to T3 hormone conversation.
You can rebuild cell membranes and increase the production of the enzyme, which will promote the conversation of T4 to T3 hormones, by eliminating long-chain fatty acids from the diet, and replacing them with medium-chain fatty acids which are found in coconut oil.
However, there is more researching to be done in this area. But, until now these replacements of polyunsaturated oils with coconut oils have given a lot of positive results. Dona which improved her thyroid health explains that she has used the coconut oil since September 2002 and that her life and the life of her family and friends are changed. When she started using the coconut oil, she started to feel great.
As hypothyroid, for many years, she was on Synthroid and Cytomel with results which were inconsistent and a worse feeling. Besides the addition of coconut oil, she had to completely remove soy, all fatty acids, refined sugar, and seasonally cleanses of the organs.
