COCONUT OIL DOES INCREASE HDL

On advice of medfree, I started taking two teaspoon of Coconut Oil (Virgin Cold milled) morning evening, after lunch and dinner. My HDL at the start of taking oil was 31 (reduced from 32 about a month ago). After over a month, today my my report has shown 36. This has also improved LDL/HDL ratio. So guys, instead of putting into your hair, put it in your stomach. It will do you good!

So far, I am in the impression of not taking coconut oil in the food items; It is not at all used in our family, out of fear. Thanks for the above information.

my advise to you never drink coconut oil, in Kerala people use coconut oil as cooking media, if you consume directly your cloistral level 's will go up

I don't blame you, I was also under the same impression. But if you Google, you will find articles after articles of Coconut Oil on Lipids.

Please also google the Banting Diet by Prof Tim Noakes who recommends coconut oil, olive oil etc. This diet has helped a lot of people with diabetes and pre-diabetes. Also check out cholesterol stories as I have heard that the whole cholesterol "problem" is a scam to make Big Pharma rich.

Yes, cholesterol level will go up, but good cholesterol levels HDL will go up. That is happened in my case. LDL levels are the same. Google it.

Dear Everexotic,

To improve your HDL you must go for long walks every day. It need not be a brisk walk but for long duration. I would suggest you a daily walk of one hour will improve your HDL substantially.

Now it is clinically proved that Coconut oil is one of the best oils on par with Olive oil. It is enough if you take 10 grms of it per day to get the maximum benefit. You can also try drinking Coconut Milk (Not coconut water) every day and see excellent results in your lipid profile and Sugar profile.

Are you on any Statin drug ?

regards

Raam

I do walk every day but not for an hour. I was on statin drug, which I stopped 4 months ago, because of myopathy.

It will be good if you can walk for one hour. It will set right your metabolism. What statin were you taking and at what dose. You can reduce the dose to 10 mg or even 5 mg and get the benefit without the side effect of Myopathy. You can also try taking it on alternate days if you are a real Hypercholesterolaemia person. But some statins also reduce HDL along with LDL and TGL . If you are on Atorvastatin then try to switch over to Rosuvastatin (Rosuvas 10 mg ) and see how it works for you.

Coconut Oil is the BEST suited for cooking medium; because of faulty promotion, it had lost its sanctity even in Kerala. Coconut oil is only oil which can be reheated any number of times without any change in quality of oil. There is no doubt that this oil increases HDL.

Secondly, there is one of myth that cholesterol is bad for health; in fact it is must for our entire metabolism. Doctors are prescribing statins in case cholesterol is high; why are not they suggesting people to take oil if their cholesterol levels are low?

We had been slaves politically in the past; now culturally slaves.

There is proverb which everyone knows"Be a Roman while in Rome"; let us be Indians at least when in India.

If you have to reduce LDL and increase HDL then you can safely take Lipidomix of Vanitha Ayur research one cap per night for 30 days to reduce total cholesterol by 20-25 points. If total Chole.is more than 200 then you should use this.

see web purandaregroup.com and see medicines of vanitha ayur in it. Contact them for further information.
