Don’t Be Afraid of Coconut Oil

Don’t be afraid of coconut oil even though it is high in saturated fat. This oil contains medium chain fatty acids which are absorbed directly into the bloodstream and have been associated with higher HDL (good cholesterol) and decreased body fat. Virgin coconut oil contains no alteration of the oil during production so it retains the beneficial profile.
