NOW Foods Virgin Coconut Oil 1000mg, 120 Softgels


Coconut Oil (Cocus nucifera) is a traditional dietary staple of the people of Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Islands and has been used in Ayurvedic herbalism for thousands of years. NOW® Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is unrefined cold-pressed oil, and does not utilize any solvents in the manufacturing process. Coconut oil contains no trans-fats and is a rich source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s), such as lauric acid (C-12) and caprylic acid (C-8). MCT’s are less likely to be stored in the body as fat than most other fatty acids. Combined with essential fatty acids, it is a perfect addition to an overall healthy lipid program.*

    This review is from: NOW Foods Virgin Coconut Oil 1000mg, 120 Softgels (Health and Beauty)

    First off, I think the reviews on this page are confusing. It seems to me there is a mix of people who bought the container of oil and those that bought the pills.

    I bought the pills and am enjoying them very much. I read news reports on how coconut oil may help with Alzheimers, diabetes and diet so I thought I’d try them since I have issues with all of these in my family line. I feel more mentally focused and alert since I’ve started taking them a week or so ago. I definitely plan to continue to take the pills.

    They are large as many people have noted (see my photo uploaded with the quarter), but they are not any bigger than any other large vitamin. The pills, like other vitamins, do have a slight smell if you stick your nose in the bottle. But they have no taste, no after taste and no gross burps later.

    The bottle calls for 3 pills 3x a day. 9 seems pretty excessive for vitamins. I’m taking 6 right now, 3 with my coffee in the morning and 3 with dinner since I usually only have 1 or 2 meals a day.

    I would note that taking these has loosened some things up, you know — down there. It’s not an emergency bathroom thing but you probably will be flowing pretty freely when you do go. I’m assuming my body will eventually adjust and become more regular but it’s not really bother if it doesn’t.

    As the other reviewer mentioned, it does have more of a coconut smell than the other 2 I bought, but it has an off taste to it that the others do not. Reading about coconut oils, someone mentioned the gag factor. I had no idea what they were referring to until I tasted this. NOW’s a good name, but they fell short here. You’d be better off with Jarrow or Nutiva, similar price, better taste…

    My primary reason for buying this product was to help my digestive system. I have iron deficiency anemia, but I could not tolerate any brand of iron supplement, and the shots were extremely painful. So I became extremely anemic and needed transfusions. Consequently, I couldn’t take a chance anymore on not using iron tablets and I had to find a way to take them without suffering.
    Because I use coconut oil and milk in my cooking and for skin/hair care, I’ve done research on the benefits of this amazing seed, and I thought that these capsules might help me to tolerate iron tablets. Well they have, and I am now able to tolerate 3 daily doses of ferrous sulfate, so I’m in compliance with my doctors orders and my hemoglobin level is rising.
