The purpose of the study was to find out the effects of coconut oil (MCT oil) on lipid profile, triglycerides and body weight of adults. Participants included individuals aged between 35 and 65. Thirty adults were selected randomly. Informed consent was obtained from all participants. A systematic review and statistical-analysis of randomized group comparing the effects of MCTs after consumption for 45 days was the approach in analysing data for summarizing the objectives of the study and to test the hypothesis. HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol, triglycerides, and body weight were the main factors to be considered. Regular diet patterns of the subjects were not altered except for the consumption of MCT oil. Subjects were advised to consume 15 ml of MCT oil twice daily. (Therefore 30 ml). The results of the study show that the intake of MCTs in the diet could potentially induce modest reductions in body weight andconsumption of optimal amount of saturated fat in the form of MCT oil shows modest changes in the lipid profile as well. Long term consumption of MCT oil might make further possible changes in the results positively.
