In this video, Dr. Berg discussed the differences between palm oil and coconut oil.
Palm Oil
• It absorbs fewer pesticides or chemical fertilizer than coconut oil, soy oil, and corn oil.
• It has 50% saturated fat – 40% of which is called Palmitic.
Palmitic Acid Uses: Energy
• It has very high sources of vitamin E complex – It is one of the main antioxidants that protects the inside of the arteries from oxidative damage.
Benefits of Vitamin E Complex:
o Anticancer
o Antitumor
o Neuroprotective
o Counters radiation damage
o Regrowing the hair
• It also has vitamin A.
• Phytonutrients – like Phytosterols which are the precursors to steroid hormones.

Coconut Oil
• 9x lower palmitic acid
• High in lauric acid (which turns into monolaurin) – beneficial to the immune system, antiviral, and antimicrobial.
• A portion of coconut oil is medium chain fatty acids – good to increase energy.
