Coconut oil has been demonized in the past due to it's high saturated fat levels. What researchers are slowly finding is that not all saturated fats are 'created equal'. Coconut oil contains mostly Medium Chain Triglycerides which are metabolized by the body differently that other saturated fats. Coconut oil also contains lauric acid, caprice acid, and caprylic acid containing antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties. Coconut oil has also been used in recipes, topical medicinal treatments, oil-pulling, enemas, and massage (to name a few) for centuries in Ayurveda- India's traditional medical system.
