Coconut oil capsules are made from copra which is the dried innards of the coconut. Copra must be refined before it can be consumed because of sanitary purposes, though sometimes it is pure enough to be consumed without all the chemical treating and the high heating. Sodium hydroxide is used when fatty acids need to be removed from the coconut oil and is also used to make shelf – life longer.
There are a few different kinds of coconut oil capsules, one is Virgin coconut oil capsules which are made a little differently then regular coconut oil capsules in a way that they are made by using fresh coconut meat, which is called non- copra. Virgin coconut oil capsules can be used to burn off fatty tissue, hence helping in the process of a person trying to lose weight. Also, coconut oil capsules help to build metabolism. Coconut oil capsules are also very good in helping with the prevention of bacterial infections and are said to reduce symptoms of digestive disorders. Coconut oil capsules are also good for people with diabetes because it helps control blood sugar. It is said and researched that coconut oil also helps people with hypothyroidism.
Coconut oil capsules can usually be found at a local health stores, like GNC or just by going to your local drug store or grocery store. Be sure to speak with your pharmacists and your doctor to see what they say before consuming any kind of supplement just for health purposes, because vitamins that are good for one may not be for another.
I have never personally tried coconut oil capsules but from what I have read and heard about them they seem to be a very healthy fat burning, bacterial preventing vitamin. I plan on trying coconut oil, as a substitute for olive oil. Coconut oil capsules are a cheaper way of taking a healthy vitamin without having to actually buy and eat an actual coconut.
