With more people discovering the health benefits of coconut oil every year, the question of capsule coconut oil has come up with greater frequency. After all, for those who don't love the taste of coconut or don't cook regularly enough to incorporate a significant amount of coconut oil into their diets, this seems like a reasonable solution. And it would be, except for one key problem.

In theory, the notion of capsule coconut oil makes perfect sense. After all, there is no reason that even the healthiest coconut oil, cold-pressed and distilled by centrifuge, cannot be put in capsule form. The problem is that in order to attain the full benefits of coconut oil, you need to use 3-3.5 tablespoons a day, and that would mean 40-45 capsules every day!

Capsule Coconut Oil Means Cheating Yourself

Unless you are willing to take that many capsules (and who would be?), you will find it nearly impossible to attain the true benefits of this remarkable substitute for hydrogenated oil. That means cheating yourself out of an organic product which can prevent infections, control diabetes, and reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer. Now that the best coconut oil has such a delicate taste, our experience is that health-conscious consumers are increasingly making the smart decision to use the oil in non-capsule form.

The fact is, Americans use hydrogenated oil in such massive amounts that finding ways to substitute non-hydrogenated coconut oil is not as hard as you might think. When the choice is between an oil which is likely to increase your cholesterol while decreasing your health and an oil that is cholesterol-neutral while increasing your health, that choice should be clear. Take the time to educate yourself, and then take steps to improve your well-being.
