The coconut tree is considered as the tree of life in the Philippines, Southeast Asia, India, and other tropical locations. And now, there are over 1,500 studies that prove the health benefits of the coconut oil.

Coconut (C. Nucifera) is a part of the family Arecaceae (Palmae) and belongs to the subfamily Cocoideae. The flesh of the coconut is aboundand in healthy acids, and its structure of fat might change depending on its processing type.

If talking about the medium-chain saturated fatty acids they are usually about 90% of the entire content, also this combination goes with a small portion of mono-unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
