Everyday I get a huge web response from a previous post I wrote on coconut oil and its benefits on the body. Although the post is very informative about the benefits of coconut oil and how it can help, many people are interested to know exactly how they can take coconut oil orally.
If your reading this, you probably already aware of the benefits of coconut oil and your ready to start taking coconut oil, you just need to figure out whats the best way for you to consume it.
First, you should know that as long as you are taking coconut oil in its purest form, which is usually virgin or extra virgin coconut oil, then you are doing yourself the best favor. Dr. Bruce Fife, author of The Coconut Oil Miracle, explains the difference between virgin, extra-virgin and regular (RBG or refined and bleached) coconut oil best in the following video–> CLICK HERE!
Second, although there are many forms to take coconut oil it is recommended to take virgin or extra-virgin coconut oil in solid form or in liquid form. Dr. Fife gives the proper dosage recommendation in the following video:
Lastly, please remember that if you opt to take coconut oil as Dr. Fife has suggested in the video, you may want to start taking it in lower dosages at first. Why? Besides the oily taste you have to get past, if you take more than one tablespoon it will have a serious effect on your stomach. How do I say this lightly? IT WILL CLEAN YOU OUT!
For those of you who don’t want it working as a natural laxative, my recommendation is to keep it at one tablespoon per day and then work your way up to two, maybe three (if you can hang).
