Virgin Coconut Oil

More people are talking about the healing effects of Virgin Coconut Oil, so I've decided to try this little experiment.

It's one thing to hear about the healing virtues of coco oil from someone you don't know. It's another to hear about the popular Conrado de Quiros' experience. No, his gout did not disappear, but he finds it less painful to walk.

Anyway, I was looking at two Virgin Coconut products on the shelf. One by Prosource (cold-pressed technique) and another by Splash Pharmaceuticals (flavored VCO).

I got the Splash sweet corn-flavored virgin coconut oil (photo) and took one teaspoonful last night. It reminded me of my cod liver oil-taking days, but it didn't taste bad. I just kept burping a corny coconut smell a couple of times last night, though.

So far, so good. None of the detoxification that Conrado de Quiros mentioned. Then again, it was just one teaspoonful.

Looks like the virgin coconut oil market will be increasingly competitive in the coming days, now that the standards on virgin coco oil are out:

The doctor (Dermatologist Vermen Verallo-Rowell) clarifies that olive oil, a heat-sensitive monounsaturate, needs to be cold-pressed with little or no heat to measure the degree of its delicate virgin state while coconut oil, a stable saturate, needs an amount of heat to lower a high moisture content that causes rancidity in order to ensure virgin quality.

What is the impact of this on ProSource which advertises "cold-pressed" in its packaging?

Anyway, I'll let you know how my VCO experiment turns out. Stay tuned!

Day 1: One tbsp
Day 2: Two tbsp; slight discomfort in tummy lasting around 15 minutes.
Day 3: Two tbsp; no discomfort. :-)
Day 4: Ate too much; decided not to take VCO.
