Trident Ph.D. Alumnus Publishes Research on the Health Benefits of Coconut Oil
Date:12/6/2019

Dr. Scott Howell, a 2019 graduate of Trident University International’s (Trident) Ph.D. in Health Sciences program, recently published research on the health benefits of coconut oil in the 7 November 2019 edition of Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases.

“Coconut Oil Intake and Its Effects on the Cardiometabolic Profile: A Structured Literature Review,” led by Dr. Hector O. Santos, examines the effect of coconut oil intake on the cardiometabolic profile through the exploration of lipid indices, as well as potential non-lipid effects, like weight loss. Those with a cardiometabolic risk have increased chances of having diabetes, heart disease, or stroke.

“Our review reveals that coconut oil is not an effective weight loss strategy and it should not be considered as an appetite suppressant,” states Dr. Howell. “Lauric acid – a fatty acid that is the main component of coconut oil – is known to increase concentrations of both low-density and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol.”

The research suggests that coconut oil intake in a weight loss regimen should be limited to no more than 10% of total caloric intake. Given that both health and industry professionals have encouraged the use of coconut oil for its health benefits, this research could have far-reaching public health benefits.

Dr. Howell teaches in Trident’s College of Health and Human Services and has research interests in the long-term effects of therapeutic androgen use and endocrine disrupting chemicals exposure. He also serves as the research director at Tier 1 Health and Wellness in Chattanooga, TN.

Earlier this year Dr. Howell co-authored, edited, and published the exercise text, “Integrated Periodization in Sports Training and Athletic Development,” with Dr. Tudor Bompa, Professor Emeritus at University of Toronto, and Dr. James Hoffmann, of East Tennessee State University. He also had papers published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology and Pharmacological Research in April.

Dr. Howell has received several acknowledgements for his contributions to academic scholarship. He received the American Military University Academic Scholar Award in 2016 and has taken part in two major National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Department of Defense (DoD) funded studies at Wake Forest University: Strength Training for Arthritis Trial (START) and The Runners and Injury Longitudinal Study (TRAILS).

Dr. Howell holds a Ph.D. in Health Sciences from Trident’s College of Health and Human Services and a Master of Science in Sport and Health Science from American Military University.
