Natural virgin coconut oil is one of the healthiest fats. This is because it belongs to a unique category of fats known as medium-chain fatty acids. The medium-chain fatty acids found in natural coconut oil do not raise serum cholesterol and do not contribute to heart disease. In fact, they tend to raid the HDL and lower the LDL:HDL ratio. Medium-chain fatty acids are smaller than other fats and are therefore digested much more quickly, being fully broken down by the time they reach the intestinal tract without needing to rely pancreatic enzymes. Because of this, they don't linger in the bloodstream waiting to get deposited into adipose tissue, but instead are used as an immediate source of fuel and energy to the body. This ready form of fuel results in increased in energy, improved metabolism, decreased food consumption, lower body fat mass, and reduced body weight.
