Superfoods are those food items that are considered to be highly nutritious and at the same time, beneficial for the health and well-being.
The list of these food items is long and often, coconut oil features heavily on this list. But coconut oil might not be a superfood after all. Few studies have exposed the unhealthy side of coconut oil. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), the presence of saturated fat in the food item can result in high cholesterol.
Also, it could lead to heart diseases. However, coconut oil does have its good side thanks to the presence of anti-oxidants.
