A new study shows that the oils found in coconut oil, sunflower oil and coconut oil pulling can be used to reduce your risk of developing chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) if consumed in the correct dosage.
The study, published in the American Journal of Physiology-Endocrinology and Metabolism (AJPE), found that people who were given coconut oil pulled or coconut oil were three times more likely to have symptoms of CFS than those who were told they needed to avoid it.
Researchers also found that those who consumed coconut oil with the right amount of sunflower or coconut oils were 10 times less likely to develop CFS.
Coconut Oil PullingThe study also found coconut oil pullings are an effective treatment for people with chronic fatigue disorder (CDF).
According to the researchers, the amount of coconut oil the body can extract from the oil, and its ability to help with recovery from exercise, has important health benefits for people suffering from CFS, which causes a loss of muscle mass, fatigue and low energy levels.
According to Dr Paulo, who led the research, the research was conducted to determine the potential benefits of coconut oils in treating CFS and to assess the potential risks.
He said that while research was underway, there was not yet enough evidence to conclude that coconut oil could reduce CFS symptoms, but that it could help people with a low energy level to recover.
“It’s definitely something we need more research on.
It’s still very early days, and there are many variables that need to be studied, but at this point we’re seeing a promising potential benefit of this type of oil.”
Dr Paulo said that coconut extractions could also be used as a natural supplement, but added that more research was needed.
He also pointed out that there is currently no evidence that coconut can be found in the human body as a dietary supplement.
“We are looking into how to use coconut extract in the future, but we need additional data to be able to say that coconut is really safe.”
“If we could find some evidence to support coconut’s potential benefit in the prevention of CFF, we would certainly look at it.”
Dr Malena Della Vecchia, a specialist in nutrition and sleep at the University of Cambridge, said that the results were not surprising.
“The first time I heard of coconut being used for weight loss was in a study conducted by Dr Pauli et al,” she said.
“In that study they were looking at the effects of coconut extract on the energy metabolism of mice, which is a very important aspect of CFCS, so this is one of the first studies that looks at coconut in this way.”
Dr Della Vucchia said that people could potentially benefit from consuming coconut oil as part of a healthy diet.
“There are several foods that contain coconut oil in the body, and coconut extract, like other extracts, can be useful in reducing fatigue and improving mood,” she added.
“If coconut oil is added to a diet, it could provide a boost in energy levels and boost sleep quality.”
The research also looked at the effect of a low-fat diet on CFS sufferers, with the study suggesting that coconut might be helpful in reducing symptoms of fatigue.
“A low-carbohydrate diet is generally associated with fewer side effects than a high-fat one, but the benefits of this diet might be diminished if one is suffering from fatigue,” Dr Della Veccchia added.
Dr Pauli said that a large amount of the coconut oil was used in the study, and that he did not expect it to be the cause of the increased CFS risk.
“I would say that about 70 per cent of coconut was extracted from the coconut,” he said.
Dr Dasha Della Vedra, who co-authored the study alongside Dr Paula, added that there was also a lot of uncertainty about the amount and composition of the oils used.
“What we know from previous studies is that coconut oils have a high lipid content, which means they contain a lot more fatty acids than other oils.
So it’s not like there is a huge difference between coconut and other oils, but it’s important to keep this in mind when looking at coconut extract,” she explained.
Dr Maleni Della Viç, who is also part of the research team, said she was not surprised by the results.
“One of the things that we’ve been focusing on is understanding the role of coconut in reducing the risk of CFI, and this study shows a positive correlation between the amount that coconut was used and CFS severity,” she told The Irish Sun.
“So it’s encouraging to see that the amount is similar in this study, which might mean that people in this country are using coconut oil at a low level of risk.”
