Coconut oil got a lot of attention in 2017, primarily because the American Heart Association declared it unhealthy, which prompted a massive debate over the popular oil and saturated fats in general. Integrative and functional medicine doctors defended it, others criticized it, and we all learned a little bit more about coconut oil, which became famous for its high smoke point.

So what role does coconut oil play in our metabolism? As a metabolism expert, I can tell you that it has great fat-burning properties—and it's the perfect ingredient to incorporate into any metabolism-boosting regimen.
