What Are The Health Benefits Of Coconut Oil?
There is no scientific evidence that coconut oil helps with weight loss, thyroid function, Alzheimer's disease, HIV/AIDS, or irritable bowel syndrome, among other claims.
No clinical evidence shows that coconut oil (from the coconut palm) is any more healthy than other sources of saturated fats.
If you like the taste of coconut oil, use it in place of butter or shortening, or pairing it with other cooking oils. Limit the amount and avoid using it in place of other plant-based oils.
