Coconut oil is largely used by people on a daily basis whether it is for cooking, hair or skin treatments.

People think it is a healthier option to go for. But there’s a bad news. “You can put it on your body, but don’t put it in your body.” A recent study by American Heart Association revealed that coconut oil has never been a healthier option, but it is actually worse.

A recent study by American Heart Association revealed that coconut oil has never been a healthier option, but it is actually worse.

According to the study, coconut oil is made up of about 82% saturated fat which is far greater than other oils- butter (63%) and beef fat (50%).

AHA further reviewed existing data and found that coconut oil actually increases LDL cholesterol – bad cholesterol – which eventually leads to heart diseases by building up plaque in your arteries.

Olive oil is a good option if you are looking to switch over to something healthier for your body. As some studies suggest, olive oil builds up good cholesterol in your body.
