Unlike the more common long-chain fatty acids found in most meats and plants, these fatty acids are not absorbed directly into the bloodstream and, therefore, do not directly raise blood fat levels or contribute to cardiovascular disease. The MCFA in coconut oil are absorbed straight into the portal vein and sent directly to the liver.
