10. Help keep your Type 2 diabetes in check
If you have Type 2 diabetes, you’ll be well aware of how important it is to keep an eye on your diet, and coconut oil can help relieve you of some worries. A study by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research has found that coconut oil can help protect against insulin resistance. This reduces the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes in the first place, and also helps reduce the amount of fat that is stored in the body, helping people who already suffer from the condition.
So, if you’re concerned about your diet and think you may in fact be at risk of developing this condition, simply start eating healthier, do more exercise and eat more coconut oil!
