Coconut oil is very much beneficial for those persons who are suffering from thyroid disease. It doesn’t matter that you are suffering from hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. In both cases coconut oil is beneficial. Generally, coconut oil stimulates thyroid function and it has various antiseptic properties.

According to many researchers, it has been found that coconut oil helps in lowering the cholesterol level. Due to its ability of stimulating thyroid function coconut oil has the cholesterol-lowering properties. Cholesterol gets converted into necessary anti-aging steroids, pregnenolone, progesterone and DHEA by the enzymatic processes, but the presence of adequate thyroid hormone is necessary. These converted substances are necessary and helpful in curing and preventing heart disease, senility, obesity, cancer and other diseases related to aging and chronic degenerative diseases.

It is also found that because of thyroid stimulation, coconut oil has weight loss stimulating properties also. It is also found that because coconut oil supports thyroid function and the thyroid governs the brain development of human body including myelination and the result might reflect the difference between normal and hypothyroid individuals. Another important point is that some medium chain saturated fatty acids in coconut oil has the ability to inhibit the liver’s formation of fat very likely synergizes with the pro-thyroid effect which allows energy to be used not to be stored.

Coconut oil is good because it contains saturated fats. Unsaturated fats lead to lower blood sugar. Unsaturated oil damages the mitochondria which cause respiration to be uncoupled from energy production and it means that fuel is burned without any useful effect. The anti-thyroid actions suppress the activity of the respiratory enzyme, which decreases the respiratory production of energy.
