wow you botched that quote job but I think I was able to find your response/? out of it.
As for the anti viral thing. well sure there are studies. But studies are just that. I mean we can find a study that, they can be swayed to say just about anything. There are many that swing both ways on coconut fats and really anything. I mean back in the day they had studies that led cyclist to smoke.
But yes time and time again people in tropical areas where the majority of there intake of fats comes from Coconut have shown some very positive results. thing is these very same populations generally have a diet high in fish and fruits and veggies. So without the beef etc they are in need of a good sat fat source.
That said many of the people around here and bodybuilding for sometime have shorted themselves on sat fats. Thinking its the devil. So adding in cocnut is an awesome way to add that back in. Really helpfull with the state of the fat profile of the majority of our beef and live stock today being grain fed. We need sat fats. They are required as are all the fats. They in particular play a HUGE role in hormone production.
So if you are getting enough or more than enough sat fats like much of the civilized world. eating fatty meats, etc. then you really dont need or want more,. But if you are choosing the leanest of meats, avoid Junk, then it can be good and helpfull.
But yes you cant rely on it as your only source of fats you still need your proper amounts of PUFA'sd and MUFA's from varied sources.
Any further benefit is just that like icing on the cake. Many of the thought bebenfits are/will be awesoerm if proven true abiout the MCT's, and anti viral properties.
Take it for what its worth, Just another opinion.
