  1. coconut oil - anyone using?


    Just curious if anyone is using it in conjunction or in place of carlson's fish oil or others. If so - what benefits and/or dosages are you using?

    thanks!

    I have reserved a book from Bruce Fife, N.D. (whatever ND means) from the library. It is a book on specifically on the benefits of coconut oil. I currently do not use it.

  6. I've used it for a few years and I do think it does what many claim. After a couple of tablespoons, there is a subtle change in metabolism..I get warmer, breathing rate changes.

    I can't speak much for it's wieght loss claims because I seldom cut and when I do there's usually some ephedrine involved.

    If you have dry skin, CO will definitely help both from eating it and using it topically. It's one of the best aftershave skin toners I've ever used...really soothes razor burn.

  7. It definitely helped lower my cholesterol numbers. Went from 215 to 178 with just the addition of CO. Was already taking fish oil and psyllium.

    Coconut oil stimulates thyroid hormone, which may account for these effects.

    Thyroid hormone promotes the production of cholesterol to pregnenolone. Also another interesting quote from the link below: “The coconut family contains steroids that resemble pregnenolone”.
