Virgin Coconut oil does not increase blood cholesterol levels and thus does not cause heart disease. Coconut oil has a neutral effect on blood cholesterol, even in situations where coconut oil is the sole source of fat” (George Blackburn M.D., Harvard Medical School). There are two types of saturated fats which are MFCA (Medium Chain Fatty Acids) and LCFA (Long Chain Fatty Acids). The difference between the two types is that MCFA does not raise cholesterol while LCFA raises cholesterol. Coconut oil is composed mostly of MCFA, so it does not raise blood cholesterol nor increases the risk of contracting heart disease.
Virgin Coconut Oil is less likely to cause obesity compared to other oils. Coconut Oil is composed mostly of MCFA. It is easily digested by the body and processed as energy rather than being stored by the body as fat.
Virgin Coconut Oil is rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT), known to have many health benefits, most notably its anti-aging effects, potential anti-cancer effects and anti-microbial/anti-viral properties. Since coconut oil is rich in MCT, it promotes good health and quick healing.
