We think that hydrogenated fats are harmful for body because it results in excessive fat calories and high cholesterol levels. But we should also know that fat is an essential part of our diet. We need fat regularly to produce hormones and cellular membranes. Fat is also required for absorbing fat-soluble minerals and vitamins.

After doing research it is found that coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids (MCFA), which are also called medium chain triglycerides MCT). Our body digests medium chain fatty acids more quickly and easily. And these MCFA are sent to the liver where it get metabolized and converted into a rapid source of energy. And because of this our metabolism rate gets increased, which leads to faster weight loss and providing more energy. You can consume coconut oil in various ways. You can take it directly in your diet or you can cook your food in it. Coconut oil does not help in losing weight only it also provide a healthy fat in your body. Coconut oil is the largest source of saturated fat and lauric acid. Lauric acid is also essential for our body.
