Bihar is not only the land of the Buddha, Ashoka the Great, Chanakya. Mahavira, Guru Govind Singh, Sita Mata but is home to a lot of great dishes. Here's some of the Bihari foods to try when you are in Bihar.
Benefits of coconut oil
Coconut oil was considered unhealthy and full of saturated fat. But recent scientific studies have shown that it has many benefits. Let’s take a look at some of the many benefits documented in scientific literature.
Virgin coconut oil, rich in antioxidants, was shown to attenuate hypertension. Virgin coconut oil has a potential to reduce the development of hypertension and renal injury induced by dietary heated oil, possibly via its antioxidant protective effects on the kidneys.
Kamisa et al. 2016 Appl Physiol Nutr Metab.
As compared to the long-chain fatty acids found in other cooking oils, the medium-chain fats in Medium-chain triglycerides are far less likely to be stored in adipose tissue, do not give rise to 'ectopic fat' metabolites that promote insulin resistance and inflammation, and may be less likely to activate macrophages.
McCarty and DiNicolantonio. 2016. Open Heart.
Coconut oil even though rich in saturated fatty acids in comparison to sunflower oil when used as cooking oil media over a period of 2 years did not change the lipid-related cardiovascular risk factors and events in those receiving standard medical care. Vijayakumar et al. 2016. Indian Heart J.
Chlorhexidine andcoconut oil have shown significant antifungal activity which is comparable with ketoconazole.
Shino et al. 2016. Scientifica (Cairo).
Virgin Coconut Oil could be an efficient nutraceutical in preventing the development of diet induced insulin resistance and associated complications possibly through its antioxidant efficacy. Narayanankutt. 2016. J Food Sci Technol.
It was observed that the nutritional treatment associated with extra virgin coconut oil consumption reduced the CC and increased HDL-C levels in patients with coronary artery disease.
Cardoso et al. 2015. Nutr Hosp.
Virgin coconut oil consumption during chemotherapy helped improve the functional status and global quality of life of breast cancer patients. In addition, it reduced the symptoms related to side effects of chemotherapy.
Law et al. 2014. Lipids Health Dis.
Supplementation of virgin coconut oil has beneficial effects on lipid parameters by reducing lipogenesis and enhancing the rate of fatty acid catabolism; this effect was mediated at least in part via PPARα-dependent pathways. Thus, dietary VCO reduces the risk for coronary heart disease by beneficially modulating the synthesis and degradation of fatty acids.
