Image: 14 Herbs for healing the thyroid naturally

Think of your thyroid as a car engine. This tiny, butterfly-shaped gland located near the Adam’s apple produces the hormones that are needed by your cells to perform at their optimum level.

Now, the logic here actually has little to do with the actual composition of coconut oil. When making the claim that coconut oil is bad for you, the Telegraph falls back on the American Heart Association’s general stance on saturated fat as a whole. The argument against saturated fat has been highly contested — and when it comes to coconut oil specifically, this generalization falls short. Why?
