What are the health benefits of coconut oil?

Coconut oil Health Risks

While coconut oil is a popular choice in cooking and personal care, it is important to be mindful of potential health risks.

How much coconut oil should I eat per day?

It is recommended to consume no more than 2 tablespoons (about 30 milliliters) of coconut oil per day. Excessive consumption of coconut oil may lead to an increase in saturated fat intake, so moderation is key.
