Under Active Thyroid
Mary Shomon is the person to look up about this topic.
Coconut Oil speeds up the metabolism because the MCTs (most of the acids in the oil, which your body loves) are small enough that they don’t require the pancreas, or insulin to break down like animal fats, and other longer chain acids (LCTs). Therefore they provide an instant, and sustained boost to your metabolism.

What does Mary Shomon say about Coconut Oil?
“The May 20, 2003 issue of the weekly newsstand publication, Woman’s World, featured a cover story “The New Thyroid Cure.” Since that article hit the newsstand, I was deluged with emails from people who want to know if what the article seems to claim is true: Can coconut oil “cure” your hypothyroidism and ensure rapid weight loss?…Low thyroid function has many causes and no one therapy can cure all thyroid related diseases. Coconut oil is just part of the solution. For some people coconut oil may be of little help. However, when used properly and in conjunction with other things it can have a very significant effect on the most common forms of hypothyroidism.”
We hope that helps!
