  1. Hello Soon Chai
    I am a 55 yr. old women, married 34 yrs. and 2 kids which are grown now. I feel my husband who's 59 and I are in fairly good shape. I did suffer with asthma for a few of my adults yrs. and gain control of my life without asthma by quit smoking and changed my diet. We both are not on any prescription meds at ALL. I have not had a menstrual cycle for the past 5 yrs. or more. We are general healthy eater but have let work get in the way and started eating out about 3 times a week. I have worked for over 30 yrs. on one job and my husband and I decided that I can stop working for a while and get back to our lives. He is still working. So I am getting back to the old way of doing things by eating right. I LOVE to cook and I am messing around with the Keto low carb recipes, getting on the treadmill and starting back on the coconut oil again. I did it yrs ago and know it's benefits.

    My question is..... I started taking a 1 tsp. coconut oil with dinner for the past 2 days and on the 3rd day my menstrual cycle started again. I am like what the heck is going on? Could this be from getting back on the coconut oil again? I measure out 1tsp. and 1tbsp. as I start out with small amount 1st. of the coconut oil and put it in ice trays and freeze it. Pop it out of tray and put into a labeled zip lock bag. Its ready to pop in my mouth and keep on going.

    Thank You in Advance for Your Rely!

    Sincerely Tangela

    • Hi Tangela, so you only started back on coconut oil for 2 days and you're experiencing menstrual cycle.

      Well, coconut oil may help to regulate hormones. But you've just started it back for couple of days. I think low-carb may be the reason because it's not a "normal" diet one should have.

      We're not designed to function on low-carb. So, it could cause your body to go a bit haywire. You might like to check with your doctor or a gynecologist about your condition, just to make sure your health is good.

    • Hi Sirisha, as long as it's coconut oil, it should help you achieve weight loss.

      However, it does not effect weight loss when you only take a teaspoon of coconut oil or two a day and you're expecting to see some significant changes. At least 3 tablespoons of coconut oil per day, I would say.

      Cut back on meat and other high-calorie food, and compensate the reduction of these foods with coconut oil. That's how you lose weight with coconut oil.

      • So i should take atlst 3 tblspon of coconut oil daily and its okay if it is not VCO also na.It doesnt lead to weight gain na if it is not VCO.And is it okay if i take it with lemon water morning and evg.

  2. I bought a bottle of deodorized VCO for cooking. The oil is white when in solid form but yellow when in liquid. The manufacturer said the yellow liquid is fine and the vco did not go through a heating process. Is the yellow oil healthy to consume?

    • Hi Helena, based on your description, my guess is that what you got is not VCO (virgin coconut oil), but actually an RBD coconut oil.

      RBD stands for "refined, bleached and deodorized". It looks yellowish in liquid state due to the natural color of the copra (dried coconut meat) processed.

      Virgin coconut oil is obtained from fresh white coconut meat, which is why it looks clear like water but turns white when in solid state. In other words, virgin coconut oil should not appear yellowish in any form. And it should give you a mild coconut scent.

      RBD coconut oil is still healthy to consume. It carries almost as much health benefits as that of virgin coconut oil except for the aroma. So, don't worry.

      Why RBD coconut oil? So as not to overpower the natural flavor of the food you cook.

  3. Hi Soon, is it okay to take in capsule form? I'm thinking of buying virgin coconut oil capsules cold pressed, unrefined and organic 1000mg.

    Other ingredients are: Softgel capsule (gelatin, water, glycerin).

    Thanks!
