L’huile de coco agirait comme un antioxidant

Voici une recherche très intéressante sur l’huile de coco vs les oméga 3, provenant des huiles de poissons. Encore une fois, l’huile de coco apporterait une protection au niveau des mitochondries ( respiration des cellules ). L’oxydation des gras ainsi que des protéines augmenteraient l’inflammation, le vieillissement, l’hypothyroïdie et le diabète. Alors, consommer de l’huile de coco à tout les jours ne peut qu’être bénéfique.

Abstract
Our study compared the effects of different oils on oxidative stress in rat heart mitochondria, as well as on plasma parameters used as risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The rats were fed for 16weeks with coconut, olive, or fish oil diet (saturated, monounsaturated, or polyunsaturated fatty acids, respectively). The cardiac mitochondria from rats fed with coconut oil showed the lowest concentration of oxidized proteins and peroxidized lipids. The fish oil diet lead to the highest oxidative stress in cardiac mitochondria, an effect that could be partly prevented by the antioxidant probucol. Total and LDL cholesterols decreased in plasma of rats fed fish oil, compared to olive and coconut oils fed rats. A diet enriched in saturated fatty acids offers strong advantages for the protection against oxidative stress in heart mitochondria.
