Intelligent Medicine Podcast: The remarkable health properties of coconut oil, Part 1

Once maligned as a harmful, saturated fat, coconut oil is experiencing a resurgence of interest because of its remarkable health properties. Dr. Bruce Fife, author of The Coconut Oil Miracle, is the originator of the Coconut Research Center. We discuss the potential roles of extra virgin coconut oil in treatment of obesity (and paradoxically malnutrition), intestinal inflammation, skin disorders, Alzheimer’s Disease, and even cancer. As an added bonus, Dr. Fife discusses the new fad of “oil pulling”—initially skeptical, after scientific investigation, he concludes that there really might be something to it!
