Coconut oil contains natural saturated fats that increase HDL the good cholesterol levels in your body. They may also help turn LDL the bad cholesterol into a less harmful form. By increasing HDL, many experts believe that coconut oil may boost heart health compared with many other fats. Plus if you cook with oil to fry foods, cooking with coconut oil is a more healthy choice as coconut oil is more stable over high temperatures , where as other oils are not so stable at higher temperatures. E.g Olive oil has a lower smoke point-the point at which an oil literally begins to smoke (olive oil's is between 365° and 420°F). When you heat olive oil to its smoke point, the beneficial compounds in oil start to degrade, and potentially health-harming compounds form.
