Coconut oil for fat

Has anyone had experience using coconut oil.  It was recommend to me for something else, but 1 tablespoon has 14 grams of fat.  It comes in a jar and is solid unless heated.  Supposedly taste free.  Might be good in a smoothie or with hot tea/coffee. Don't want to add anything to the already burning incivek issues or increase any other digestive issues, but always looking to add something to the 20 grams routine.

Thanks

"There is a growing body of evidence supporting the notion that coconut oil is a wise choice for those with chronic Hepatitis C - but not everyone is convinced.  Dr. Weil reminds us that coconut oil is a saturated fat - and, as one, it can raise cholesterol levels - a situation that could aggravate the liver's well-being.. Thus, he suggests coconut oil should play a very limited role, if any, in the diet."

Take this with a grain of salt, unless on a low sodium diet.  :o))

Another plus for coconut oil, though not hep C related:
