◆ It helps you lose weight.
◆ It is good for your heart.
◆ It kills bacteria and viruses.
◆ Sorry, consuming coconut oil won’t help you magically shed fat.
◆ It may raise ‘healthy’ HDL cholesterol but it also raises ‘harmful’ LDL cholesterol levels.
◆ Doesn’t contain enough bug-fighting lauric acid to have an antibiotic effect.

◆ Coconut is a great hair conditioner, as it penetrates the hair shaft better than many other oils.
◆ It is heat stable so – if you like the taste – it’s good for occasional frying.
