Coconut oil can lead to increased levels of cholesterol in the human body. This is reported by scientists from the University of Biological Sciences in South Carolina.
Specialists came to the conclusion that coconut oil often leads to problems with the cardiovascular system. Active elements of the oil activate the production of cholesterol in the human body. Also, coconut oil can cause an increase in the body’s level of immunomodulator, which affects immune responses.
It is noted that a small amount of coconut oil helps to fight excess weight. But too much oil is dangerous to health. In addition to the heart, coconut oil can damage the kidneys and stomach. This is due to the fact that the product contains compounds that are difficult to digest by the body. As a result, oil can cause ulcers or even kidney failure.
