COCONUT OIL HELPS PCOS

Coconut Oil Helps PCOS

Many women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) struggle with low thyroid or hypothyroidism. This condition can slow metabolism and make it harder to lose weight. Women with PCOS may be four times more likely to suffer from hypothyroidism.(1) When researching hypothyroidism I wanted to see what natural therapies were available. Interestingly, I found countless testimonials praising the benefits of coconut oil, not only to help thyroid function, but also to help with insulin resistance and diabetes.

Coconut oil is an edible oil that has been consumed in tropical places for thousands of years. It is a medium-chain fatty acid (MCFAs). In nature, coconut oil has the largest concentration of MCFAs outside of human breast milk. Most other fats, such as polyunsaturated vegetable oils and animal fat, are long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs). For the hypothyroid sufferer the MCFAs in coconut oil speed up the body’s sluggish metabolism and promote weight loss as well. Ray Peat, Ph.D. is a renowned nutritional counselor who specializes in the study of hormones. Dr. Peat recommends using coconut oil for people with low thyroid. According to Dr. Peat, “Polyunsaturated oils block thyroid hormone secretion, its movement in the circulation, and the response of tissues to the hormone. When thyroid hormones are deficient, metabolism becomes depressed.”(2) Every time we eat polyunsaturated oils, our thyroid gland is compromised and loses its ability to function normally. Weight gain is one of the consequences.

If you have PCOS, it is important that you ask your doctor to test your thyroid. You should request tests that screen the thyroid hormones T4 and T3, as well as TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone).
