Virgin Coconut oil for Diabetes
Diabetes mellitus in Indonesia known as diabetes. Diabetes is glycosuria (glucose in the urine) caused because of the pile of glucose in the blood that excluded with urine. In this condition, insulin production or decreased enzyme so disturbed metabolism.
This causes the glucose is not can enter into the cells so that the concentration of blood glucose increased. Heaps of glucose can not be used for generating energy and eventually disposed of with the urine. Insulin serves to convert glucose into energy for cells with how to transfer blood glucose in the cells that need.
Glucose in the blood can not be directly used as energy, must first be transferred into the cells through a process of oxidation in the cell. Also, insulin converts glucose into energy reserves glycogen and fat).
If blood glucose is abundant, will convert into glycogen and stored in the liver and muscles. While fat stored in adipose tissue, to normalize the levels of blood glucose. The content of MCFA (medium-chain fatty acids) in the Virgin Coconut Oil can stimulate the production of insulin, the hormone transporters sugar into body cells. Also, the Virgin Coconut Oil can penetrate or pressed the intestinal wall without enzymes that help cells produce energy more quickly.
