Hi cyndi_j316,

Hopefully this article, The Truth About Coconut Oil , will answer your question.

It discusses if coconut oil is better than other fats and oils, explains food is more important than nutrients and lists the recommended Dietary Guideline for fats.

What has been your experience taking coconut oil? Do you use it for cooking?
