There have been a few experts lately talking about the benefits of coconut oil. The first one is Texas Rangers (this years AL West Champions) starting pitcher, CJ Wilson and his personal chef. WFAA reported that Wilson is a “clean” eater. “For Wilson, an important part of his endurance comes from what he eats.” CJ’s personal chef, Aaron Elliott, “uses all organic products. He cooks with coconut oil instead of olive oil.”
According to Aaron, CJ has some gameday superstitions that he simply will not break on days he is pitching. “His game day omelet consists of three eggs with spinach, mushrooms, bell pepper and onion. The vegetables are sauteed in coconut oil before the eggs are added.”
Another expert speaking out about coconut oil is Dr. Sinatra, a cardiologist with 30+ years of experience. When asked if coconut oil was good for heart health, he responded with:
“Absolutely. Coconut oil is good for the heart and the entire body. One of the greatest attributes of coconut oil is that because it is a saturated fat, it doesn’t oxidize. Saturated fats used to be thought of as bad for the heart, but the truth is that saturated fats are perfectly okay because they are very resistant to oxidation. Even though omega-3 essential fatty acids are good for heart health, if they become oxidized they can be as toxic as even the most ugly fats of all—trans fats. Omega-6 oils such as corn, canola, and vegetable oils are very prone to oxidation and can be very toxic to the body if over consumed.
Coconut oil also contains monolaurin, which supports the immune system. So, consider coconut oil as a good option to boost heart health and immune health.”
