    Is this True?

    "The fatty acids in coconut oil kill bacteria, viruses, and fungus and also provide a quick source of energy while stimulating metabolism."

    Sounds too good to be true!

    I read a little about coconut oil and the article didn't make all those claims. If you do a search on this site you'll see previous posts about this oil.

    Personally, I don't know if I could swallow ANY oil. Sounds so gross to me.

    But, hey, if it works for you.........

    Good luck!

    I've read good things about coconut oil, but it has to be organic virgin oil. If you put organic virgin coconut oil into a search engine, there are quite a few suppliers who also give good accounts of why it's supposed to be so good.

    I sent for some, it smells heavenly and is great for cooking with. I intended to take it regularly but as you said, swallowing it isn't easy, though it tastes ok, just eat or drink something straight after!! So I still haven't got around to taking it regularly.

    It comes in jars and is solid(ish) and white. It doesn't melt till it hits around 74 degrees F.

    I also bought some when in the USA from a shop that sold natural wholefoods and supplements.
