Coconut Oil and Your Daily Dose!!

Ever wonder how much coconut oil you should take every day? There seems to be a lot of differing information about how much coconut oil you should take. I have found the following:

- You can do as little is one teaspoon internally (especially if you are also rubbing it into your skin since it is highly absorbed into your blood stream when you rub it into your skin)
- Many believe you should take 3 tablespoons internally if you are taking coconut oil for a particular problem (don't fret, you can mix coconut oil into all sorts of things rather than just take it straight) -- this amount is comparable to the quantity of medium chain fatty acids in human breast milk
- OR you can look at the following chart below for your daily dose of coconut oil

babies and toddlers -- 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons
kids under 75 pounds -- 2 tablespoons
people 75-100 pounds -- 2 1/2 tablespoons
people 100-200 -- 3 tablespoons
over 200 pounds -- 4 tablespoons

I hope this helps you in knowing how much coconut oil will aid your health!
