I've known about coconut oil for awhile but have been lazy about getting back into taking it.
I had gotten a large container of refined coconut oil for my skin and hair. I've been using it for cooking too. I'm also starting to do oil pulling.
For actual internal use, I bought two large containers of EVCO. I was cringing at the thought of taking it since my last batch of EVCO was disgusting. I tasted some of the new stuff yesterday and omg...: yum!
Word to the wise, if you decide to take coconut oil, stay far away from Now brand. I ate the last of my Now brand coconut oil that I had neglected for awhile (we're talking a year here) and remembered why I stopped taking EVCO. It tasted like soap : it was horrible.
The new stuff is from Gold Top Organics. I love it.
I tried the coconut oil and avc together and my throat felt scratchy afterwards too. Almost like I was having heartburn.
FWIW, I made my first batch of fermented carrot ginger last night I may become fully TF one day
Funny that you said that the Now brand was awful. My cousin just told me she loves it. I'll have to tell her. It really is important to try different brands. I had the scratchy throat too I think at first but when I mixed the 2 together in a large glass of water it was fine. The great thing is that I woke up w a very sore throat the other night and by early morning it was gone. I'm sure it was the ACV and CO. My son had a really bad cold for weeks and it turned into a cough but luckily thats all I got.
Re- the benefits of ACV just google it and you will see tons of stories about weight loss and its amazing benefits.
