It is currently being used in treating symptoms of AIDS. Coconut butter-oil contains medium chain fatty acids such as lauric (C-12), caprylic (C-10) and myristic (C-14) acids. Of these three, coconut oil contains 40%+ lauric acid, which has the greater antiviral activity of these three fatty acids. Lauric acid is so disease fighting that it is present in human mothers breast milk! The body converts lauric acid to a fatty acid derivative (monolaurin), which is the substance that protects infants from viral, bacterial or protozoal infections. This antiviral property was recognized and reported in 1966 (Jon Kabara).
Work by Hierholzer and Kabara (1982) showed that monolaurin has virucidal effects on RNA and DNA viruses, which are surrounded by a lipid membrane. In addition to these RNA and DNA viruses, in 1978, Kabara and others reported that certain medium chain fatty acids, such as lauric acid have adverse effects on other pathogenic microorganisms, including bacteria, yeast and fungi. These fatty acids and their derivatives actually disrupt the lipid membranes of the organisms and thus inactivate them (Isaacs and Thormar 1991; Isaacs et al. 1992). This deactivation process also occurs in human and bovine milk when fatty acids are added to them (Isaacs et al. 1991).
Raw Virgin Organic Coconut Butter-Oil consists of 90+% saturated fat, a very important building block of the human body. Even after one year at room temperature, coconut butter shows no evidence of rancidity even though it contains 9% linoleic (omega - 6) polyunsaturated acid. Theories hold that coconut butter may have antioxidant properties, since the oil doesn’t turn rancid and since it reduces our need for vitamin E, whereas unsaturated oils deplete vitamin E.
The cholesterol-lowering properties of coconut butter-oil are well documented and a direct result of its ability to stimulate thyroid function. In the presence of adequate thyroid hormone, cholesterol (specifically LDL-cholesterol) is converted by enzymatic process to the vitally necessary anti-aging steroids, pregnenolone, progesterone and DHEA. These substances are required to help prevent heart disease, senility, obesity, cancer and other diseases associated with aging and chronic degeneration. Virgin Organic Coconut Butter-Oil contains no cholesterol, no trans-fatty acids and is not hydrogenated.
