    Coconut oil is a medium-chain saauttred fatty acid. It’s one of the few saauttred fats that comes from a plant souce. Other saauttred fats are found in animal products such as red meat, poultry, butter and whole milk.Coconut oil has become popular as a natural remedy. Proponents of coconut oil say that coconut oil has the following benefits: Coconut oil contains lauric acid and its derivative, monolaurin, which appear to have antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.It also contains medium chain triglycerides, which are not thought to be stored in the body like other oils and also may boost metabolism and promote weight loss.Critics say, however, that coconut oil is a saauttred fat, like butter, and should be avoided. There is also insufficient evidence from human studies showing it’s effective.If you are going to use coconut oil, follow these tips:Don’t buy hydrogenated coconut oil or oil that has been treated with solvents, bleach, or heat. A health food store is probably your best bet.You will get the most lauric acid for your dollar with coconut oil rather than coconut milk. Three and a half tablespoons of coconut oil is equivalent to ten ounces of coconut milk. Lite coconut milk is low in fat and also low in lauric acid. And finally, coconut milk is processed differently than the oil and may not have the same effects.Before you rush out to purchase your Coconut Oil, you should do some research to understand the risks and benefits. I’ve included a couple of links for information, and one to aid you in an online purchase when you’ve made up your mind.
