In the past, coconut oil has been considered harmful to the human body due to its high saturated fat content. Over the last decade, many scientific studies have shown that the medium-chain fat of dicocco oil is unique compared to other types. fat and bring many benefits to the body.
If we consider the countries with the highest consumption of coconut oil we observe that:

Coconut oil medium-saturated fatty acids are composed of:
Lauric acid: it makes up about 50% of coconut oil, it is essential for the human body and the proof that the other food that is rich in it is breast milk. The body needs Lauric Acid for anti-microbial anti-microbial products used to fight pathogenic viruses and bacteria. Therefore lauric acid is a fundamental saturated fat and has been found to be useful in combating viruses such as HIV, influenza and herpes. Caprico Acid: it reacts with some enzymes secreted by other bacteria, which subsequently convert it into a powerful antimicrobial agent, the monocaprino. Caprylic Acid: it is a powerful antifungal so much that it is one of the most powerful remedies against Candida infection.
These fatty acids represent a highly available source of energy, since being the average chain, they are easier to absorb than long chain ones (such as palm oil and seed oil). Coconut oil does not adversely affect cholesterol levels, precisely because it is poor in long-chain saturated fatty acids, but it has even been shown to help lower bad LDL cholesterol levels and promote good HDL.

Caprylic acid, in particular, has a powerful anti-fungal and anti-fungal action as it can destroy the cell membrane of these harmful agents, and is famous for being effective against Candida infection.
Blood FatsCoconut oil constantly improves the LDL-HDL (bad cholesterol - cholesterolobuono) ratio in the blood of those who consume it.
Absorption vitamins and fat-soluble nutrients Vitamins A, D, E and K are essential liposoluble vitamins for human beings and need the right environment to be absorbed. Coconut oil allows for correct absorption and assimilation, thus improving the health of bones, teeth, hair, skin and mood and the immune system.
