If you’ve ever tried to take a shot of any kind of oil (olive, coconut, whatever) you’ll know that the texture/mouth feel is totally gag worthy. As much as we love fat, it feels completely unnatural to drink it.
So, what can we do? Sure, you can cook your food in it, but the amount of coconut oil ultimately consumed via that method is pretty low.
The best answer seems obvious – put the oil into pills! And so, that’s what they do. It’s been done for a long time with other kinds of oils – fish oil, flax seed oil, etc., and now they make coconut oil pills as well.
