Coconut oil benefits are becoming more obvious and even mainstream America is finally getting the facts.
One of the latest studies on the benefits of coconut oil is extremely interesting. The test group who ingested coconut oil showed increased levels of HDL (good cholesterol), decreased LDL (bad cholesterol), and remarkably, a reduced waist circumference.
The test group who ingested soybean oil showed increased levels of total cholesterol, increased LDL (bad cholesterol), and a decrease in HDL (good cholesterol).
I always knew there was a reason I liked coconut oil so much, but this really helped me decide what oils I would cook with more often. The first time I used it with scrambled eggs, my kids said they tasted "amazing" but couldn't say why.
