  • I use it because it is supposed to be healthier for you. Here's one link I found for you: http://coconut-info.com/coconut_oil_why_it_is_good_for_you.htm

  • Yes, I use it all the time, even put it in my coffee. Pick up a copy of "The Coconut Oil Miracle" by Bruce Fife. It's truly a miracle oil as far as health is concerned.

  • I hadn't heard about it helping metabolism, but I've heard other things about it being good for you - 1 Tbsp/day, I think. Saw it on some medical show...My mom has it but doens't use it, and I havne't tried it yet because it's expensive here, not in my grocery budget right now!

  • I don't use it because I'm allergic but I worked at a health food store that sold it and it is supposed to be good for metabolism.
