The many health benefits that can be derived from coconut oil will be highlighted at the ongoing 2nd World Coconut Congress, August 27-29, 2019 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

The ongoing 2nd World Coconut Congress (August 27-29) will highlight  how MCT or medium chain triglycerides can make a healthier you. MCT is a more concentrated form of coconut oil made up of medium chain fatty acids which can bring about a number of health benefits.

MCT can be ingested directly or added to salad dressings, smoothies, coffee or just about any beverage or food. It is good for the health because it increases the body’s natural production of good cholesterol (or high density lipoprotein) that counters excess or bad cholesterol. This way, it can help prevent the onset of cardiovascular diseases.

Experts have been invited to shed light on the many health benefits that coconut oil and MCT can bring about. One of the resource persons is Dr. Mary Newport, an advocate for the consumption of MCT as alternative fuel for the brain in the management of the onset of Alzheimers disease. A US-based medical doctor, she will attest to the effectiveness of MCT based on how her husband who is diagnosed with the condition, has responded to the use of the supplement.

Dr. Nick Dimitri Costa, a professor emeritus of Murdoch University in Australia, will then share more insights about the lauric acid, the multi-functional medium chain fatty acid from coconut oil. He along with other panelists in one of the sessions, will tackle many other health benefits from the consumption of various forms of coconut oil.

The Health and Wellness session is chaired by Dr. Fabian Dayrit, a professor at the Ateneo de Manila University. He has published several research papers about coconut oil in the Philippine Journal of Science, the Journal of the American Oil Chemists Society, and the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemstry.
