Those of us with PCOS can benefit from coconut oil in several ways. For a start, it helps control blood sugar levels and improves the secretion of insulin to help reduce the risk of diabetes, which is closely linked with PCOS.
Another plus is that, although it has plenty of saturated fat, which isn’t normally good for health, the coconut oil variety doesn’t lead to the accumulation of fat in the heart and arteries.
Crucially, coconut oil has lauric acid which actually raises levels of HDL “good” cholesterol. The latter takes LDL “bad” cholesterol away from the heart to boost the cardiovascular system.
An easy way to introduce coconut oil to your diet is to use it for cooking – it tastes delicious and adds a sweet, earthy scent to food.
