According to Thomas Brenna, a professor of nutritional sciences at Cornell University who has extensively reviewed the literature on coconut oil, a considerable part of its stigma can be traced to one major factor.
“Most of the studies involving coconut oil were done with partially hydrogenated coconut oil, which researchers used because they needed to raise the cholesterol levels of their rabbits in order to collect certain data,” Dr. Brenna said. “Virgin coconut oil, which has not been chemically treated, is a different thing in terms of a health risk perspective. And maybe it isn’t so bad for you after all.”
“There are a lot of claims that coconut oil may have health benefits, but there is no concrete scientific data yet to support this,” said Dr. Daniel Hwang, a research molecular biologist specializing in lauric acid at the Western Human Nutrition Research Center at the University of California, Davis.
But, he added, “Coconut is good food, in moderation.”
Я приму такие мнение Всякие волшебные свойства кокосового масла не доказаны, но кокосовое масло хорошо в малых дозах.
Все исследования по уровню холестерина и другому вреду проводились с гидрогенезированными видами кокосового масла и никакого смысла не имеют в случае с вирджин , необработанным, кокосовым маслом.
Как и в любом случае, в малой дозе - лекарство, в большой - сильный яд.
