6. Coconut Oil Reduce Risk of Heart Disease
Coconut oil is loaded with saturated fats. Ignore old traditions that believe all saturated fats are bad and unhealthy. Coconut oil improves cholesterol by increasing HDL (the good cholesterol) and at the same time decrease LDL (the bad cholesterol) levels. It helps the body to convert cholesterol in the blood stream into a functional form. This reduces plaque build-up in arteries. Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) found in coconut oil also work to improve blood circulation, reduce triglycerides and also reduce the risk of heart disease.
