I just started using unrefined organic virgin coconut oil - in my tea, on my hair, oil pushing, just about everywhere, and I have to say, I feel amazing! My cholesterol is very high, and that is my motivation for checking this Superfood out - and what a difference! I've already lost 5 lbs., and it hasn't been a whole week yet! Love this stuff!

I am putting it in my tea (has to be hot water to melt otherwise you will be eating a glob, and that's not enjoyable), and we are cooking with it in place of olive oil. The health benefits of olive oil are only when it is not heated. I got mine at the Green Grocer on Rte. 9 in Clifton Park - very expensive, but worth it. You have to get the Virgin (unrefined) organic - it has a faint taste and odor of coconut. I have the refined version that I bought last year, and it doesn't smell like anything. It helps your liver to get rid of all the toxins in your body, and helps your liver to work more effectively/efficiently - which is where cholesterol is made. Coconut oil is mostly saturated fat, however, it is a long chain triglyceride something or other, and your body does not process this the way it processes other types of saturated fat. It actually helps your body to burn fat.

you can get it on ebay or amazon for cheaper! grapeseed oil is also a very good substitute for olive oil--higher smoke point so u can fry with it!!( I get that in my groc store now!!)

I use a teaspoon of coconut oil in my Isagenix smoothie every morning. Shed 50 pounds in 16 weeks! Awesome combination.
