sat·u·rate

(satch'ŭ-rāt),
1. To impregnate to the greatest possible extent.
2. To neutralize; to satisfy all the chemical affinities of a substance (as by converting all double bonds to single bonds).
3. To dissolve a substance up to that concentration beyond which the addition of more results in two phases.

Patient discussion about saturate

Q. I am wondering if any of you are ENTHUSED about the use of COCONUT OIL. I ask because it IS SATURATED FAT. I have trouble losing weight. That inculdes getting cold frequently, and was wondering if cocounut oil would help me maintain body temperture more easily. Also, I have notice that SOME claim that coconut oil has many health benefits not affiliated with polyunsaturates.

A. i know there was a Polynesian research about people that consume coconut oil on a daily basis in parallel to people who don't. they found out that there are high cholesterol levels among the people that consumed coconut oil but no significant difference in heart problems.
