Best way to drink coconut oil?

3 comments

Hello,

 

I got the advice to drink two tablespoons of coconut oil a day for health benefits and I can tell already that it's making me feel a bit more like my old self already - happier and a bit more energetic than usual but it also has some bad side effects although I have been drinking it for 3 weeks now. Twice it has made me vomit and 4 times given me really bad diarrhea and nausea. I notice that eating right before taking it or right after helps though, sort of like how you need to eat with certain medications to avoid nausea I guess. I can barely stand the smell and taste though and the smell alone makes me feel sick! I drink it with tea now which doesn't help since I DON'T like tea but drinking it in coffee i'm sure will increase the risk of an upset stomach, as well as ruin the whole pleasure of coffee...

Does anybody have any good advice on how to take it the best way? Preferably something you drink since that I think is the quickest way to take it. And anything in particular I should avoid mixing it with?

 

Any suggestions?

 

I did not find the right solution from the internet.

I drink my coffee almost everyday with a tablespoon of coconut oil. What I do is blend it in my Ninja blender with some cinnamon and honey which gives it a really creamy texture. My wife does not like coffee but she will drink this. So does my son.

Hey Westin! I am Judah Hemmerly, Pulse Level Fitness' health and wellness coach. Coconut oil is definitely amazing! However, drinking two tablespoons is a bit much. I can definitely understand why you are experiencing nausea and vomiting because coconut oil is high in fat and sometimes the body may have problems breaking down all of that fat at once. In fact, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil is really all you need to reap its benefits.

-In order to get its benefits, I would try adding a tablespoon, or even a little less just to ease your way into it, to some coffee like Jim, in the post above, mentioned. When you add it to your coffee, (you can add some cinnamon and honey for taste and added health benefits) then blend it, it makes it frothy and smooth and you cannot taste the coconut oil which is what I think you are going for at this point.

-You could also add a tablespoon of coconut oil to a fruit smoothie and that will also mask the taste and smell.

-You can use coconut oil as a moisturizer for your skin. This way, you can still get some of its benefits without ingesting it because 60% of what you put on your skin gets absorbed by your body. Coconut oil is also very healing for the skin. It helps treat skin conditions and keeps the skin looking young by promoting collagen production.

-Another way we incorporate coconut oil is by blending it in our shakes. We add our premium and all natural Thrive shake, a tablespoon of coconut oil, some chia seeds, hemp seeds, peanut butter, almond milk, and a banana to a blender and mix it together for a great protein drink.

 

Try to make sure you are buying cold pressed, extra virgin or virgin organic coconut oil because the quality of oil you purchase can also lead to nausea and vomiting.

I hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions about any of this.

Thank you for sharing, Westin!

Good stuff, been using it for years. Though not overweight, it makes a difference to health overall, including for acid reflux. I cook with it as opposed to other oils. Good energy booster, too.
