Coconut is the fruit of the coconut palm. The oil of the nut (fruit) is used to make medicine. Coconut oil is high in a saturated fat called medium chain triglycerides. These fats work differently than other types of saturated fat in the body.
Research on the effects of these types of fats in the body is very preliminary.
Coconut oil is used for diabetes, heart disease, chronic fatigue, used topically for psoriasis and a skin moisturizer, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Alzheimer’s disease, thyroid conditions, energy, and boosting the immune system. Ironically, despite coconut oil’s high calorie and saturated fat content, some people use it to lose weight and lower cholesterol.
Canadian researcher, Stephen Cunnane studies brain metabolism at Universite de Sherbrooke. Using PET scans, he found that ketones are indeed a possible alternative brain fuel… suggesting that the brain is slowly starving as Alzheimer’s disease progresses.
If you provide an alternative fuel to replace the loss of glucose in the aging brain, the coconut oil may rejuvenate the brain.
Mediterranean diet is “abundant in plant foods, fresh fruit as the typical daily dessert, olive oil as the principal source of fat, dairy products (principally cheese and yogurt), and fish and poultry consumed in low to moderate amounts, zero to four eggs consumed weekly, red meat consumed in low amounts, and wine consumed in low to moderate amounts”. Total fat in this diet is 25% to 35% of calories, with saturated fat at 8% or less of calories.
UK Research by charity Mind has found that work is the biggest cause of stress in people’s lives. With the deepening economic crisis, mental health issues linked to work are on the rise.
One in six people of working age in the UK are considered to have mental health conditions, ranging from stress and anxiety and those with depression, which is relatively common, to those with rarer disorders such as schizophrenia.
It would make good economic sense for businesses to become proactive and hire health care providers that specialize in relieving stress. This move could easily provide a cost effective to lower stress.
La Roche labs is looking for their next big win. Jet Lag?
According to the study, mice reveal why the body is so slow to recover from jet-lag and identifies a target for the development of drugs that could help us to adjust faster to changes in time zone.
“With funding from the Wellcome Trust and F. Hoffmann La Roche, researchers at the University of Oxford and F. Hoffmann La Roche have identified a mechanism that limits the ability of the body clock to adjust to changes in patterns of light and dark. And the team show that if you block the activity of this gene in mice, they recover faster from disturbances in their daily light/dark cycle that were designed to simulate jet-lag.”
According to acupuncture meridian points can reset jet lag quickly an easily in minutes with no drugs needed. Neural Kinesiology also can reset the body’s brain clock quickly without the need for a drug. Biontology also can reset the body’s energies after long trips.
