Not all coconut oils are produced the same way and the type of coconut oil you purchase will depend on what you plan to do with it. But first, in order to make an intelligent decision about which coconut oil best suits your needs, you need to understand what is currently in the market, and how they differ.

It is estimated that today one out every four Americans over the age of 55 is now taking statin drugs to artificially lower their body's cholesterol.
