Note: Coconut oil is a base of this medicine, which contains a high amount of saturated fats, but there are contradictory facts about the saturated fats and its effects on the heart health. However, coconut oil contains healthy saturated fatty acids, which do not cause an alteration in lipid profile, according to recent studies and so it now comes under the super-food category.
