Coconut oil! It's Heart Healthy!

What is the healthiest fat to eat? That would be virgin Coconut oil! It is rich in lauric acid, a proven antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agent. This beneficial oil builds the body’s immune system, while attacking bacteria, viruses, and pathogens.

Coconut oil contains no trans fats (unlike vegetable oils, margarines and other shortenings). Even the beloved Olive oil has some trans fat.

Note: Trans-fats should be avoided at all costs, because they lead to heart disease, clogged arteries, and diabetes.
