I have an hour-long class on the benefits to this great oil, including the well known fact that it helps people lose weight. Part of the reason why coconut oil is so effective for weight issues is that it helps improve protein and fat metabolism, which helps burn fat. Coconut oil helps balance blood sugar, and reduce insulin levels, another key component in supporting weight loss. It also improves mineral absorption. Lastly, because coconut oil is considered a medium chain fatty acid (most oils are long chain) it does not get stored as fat. Consider taking 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil a day and watch the fat melt away.
