Coconut oil is famous for its nutrient values. It is popular in western countries like the United States and Canada. It is also used extensively in tropical countries especially India, Thailand, Philippines etc. However, it was questioned for its high saturated fat content. For kidney disease patients, who have many diet restrictions, can they eat coconut oil? Is coconut oil beneficial for their health? In the following, let’s look into some information about it.
Lower blood sugar
For kidney patients with diabetes, coconut oil can help improve insulin use within the body, so it has the function of handling blood sugar.
Though coconut oil contains high saturated fat, its main content is lauric acid which protects your heart by reducing total cholesterol and increasing good cholesterol. It does not increase LDL and helps keep arteries flexible and prevent atherosclerosis.
Boost immune system
It contains antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid which have antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties, so it can boost the body’s immune system.
Prevent renal osteopathy
Renal osteopathy is also a symptom that many kidney patients suffer from. Coconut oil can increase bone strength by allowing better absorption of calcium, vitamin D, and other minerals.
Because kidney can not work properly, kidney patients often feel tired. Coconut oil can boost thyroid function helping to increase metabolism, energy and endurance.
What is more, coconut oil can also help you from heart disease, skin disease and control weight etc.
