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