The Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has many good virtues. Included in that list are a ton of saturated fat, strengthening of mineral absorption and helps improve blood sugar as well as insulin control. The rich flavor of coconut is another added bonus.

This tropical oil also can act as an appetite suppressant. Research indicates that about 700-800 calories of fat per day keeps hunger away.

(Note: Saturated fats are required for many crucial functions in the body. They make up part of the structure of cell membranes. They enhance calcium absorption and immune function. They aid in the body's synthesis of essential fatty acids and provide a rich source of fat soluble vitamins.)
