oxidized and rancid oils cause damage to the cell membrane that primarily affects the liver. Since the conversion of T4 to T3 also takes place in the liver, replacing fatty acids long chain dietary fatty acid medium chain containing coconut oil can rebuild cellular membranes and increase production of enzymes promote the conversion of T4 to T3 hormones.

I have tried removing coconut oil but my energy is reduced and I do not feel so good. “
