Health benefits of coconut oil

Many of the health benefits of coconut oil are based on its high content of medium-chain fatty acids. Indeed, coconut oil is recognised as the natural product with the highest content of these acids. Coconut oils are mainly composed of octanoic, lauric and decanoic medium-chain fatty acids. These fatty acids are particularly easy to digest compared to other fats and can help improve many bodily processes. Lauric acid, also found naturally in breast milk, has the most exceptional properties and is involved in regulating hormone balance and ensuring the health of the body at the cellular level.
Coconut oil is one of the best oils for frying, cooking and baking, and is cholesterol-free… it is also an excellent source of energy as this type of fat is burned immediately rather than stored.
