Default Coconut Oil

I've been reading about coconut oil and it's benefits.

http://www.organicfacts.net/organic-...conut-oil.html

I bought some organic extra virgin coconut oil to cook with. It's expensive!! But I don't fry much of anything and only have to use a little for things like stir-fry and sauteing. It's good to use about a teaspoon for popping corn, too.

I found some 1,000 mg. capsules but can't readily find any info on dosage or side effects. The Jarrow formula recommends taking 2 softgels per day. They have 25 calories each and about 13 grams of fat.....but no transfat. Will taking this affect high blood pressure? I read that 3 tablespoons of coconut oil is recommended daily but that would equate to many capsules and alot of calories.

I'm planning to ask my doctor all these questions when I go but just wondered if anyone else has used Coconut Oil with success.

I like cocoa butter on my skin, but haven't tried coconut oil to cook.

Dr. Mercola was all enthusiastic about using it....said it was the next best thing to whatever was the last best thing. Then I saw that he was selling it........ I bought mine from the store - it was still organic and cost less than half what he was charging. His articles were very informative but I still don't see what the big hype is/was. Unless it's just that it has no trans fat. It is good and makes awesome popcorn.

Here is what Dr. Weil says... (back in 2005 that is)

http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/id/QAA316479

I am sticking to my ghee. A small jar lasts me over a year, and only a thin sliver (I keep in the frig) is needed at any one time.

Eggs made with Ghee taste great too.
