The Real Deal on Coconut Oil
You may have seen the recent report put out by the American Heart Association advising people not to consume coconut oil due to its high saturated fat content.

Is this based on science or lobbying dollars and corporate influence?

The report did not provide evidence from more recent studies that prove saturated fat has positive health benefits, particularly in terms of liver health, immune health, and hormone development.

The recommendation from the AHA also advises consuming vegetable oils as an alternative (e.g. corn oil, canola oil), but these oils contain high levels of omega-6 fats and are incredibly inflammatory. They can even become toxic.

Listen as Dr. Lori Shemek joins host Lisa Davis to explain why coconut oil and other healthy fats are essential for optimal health. Dr. Shemek also suggests ways to implement coconut oil into your daily regimen.
