Coconut Oil Pills?

Coconut Oil in a Pill?

We have received many requests about coconut oil pills, or coconut oil softgels. And indeed, since so many people have requested this, there are many vendors now offering this on the market.

However, Tropical Traditions has no intention of offering a coconut oil softgel capsule. For one thing, the largest softgel one can make is 1000 mg (1 gram). As most people know, the recommended amount of coconut oil to eat each day by many researchers is about 3.5 tablespoons. 1 tablespoon is 14 grams. So to get the equivalent amount of coconut oil that most people are consuming in capsule form, one would need to take about 49 capsules a day. The companies peddling these coconut pills are recommending anywhere from 3 to 6 capsules a day, which is only a few drops of coconut oil. So if you want coconut oil in pill form, you are going to pay 20 or 30 dollars for a jar of 100 or so pills, and what value are those pills? If you do the math, you will see that the only ones benefiting from coconut oil softgels are the ones selling them.

Not only that, if you were to consume large amounts of soft gel capsules, what else are you consuming besides the oil inside them? These large gelatin capsules are made from bovine (cows), and we don't see anyone advertising organic grass-fed derived gelatin capsules. (If they are "vegetarian" capsules, then they are likely corn or soy-based with GMOs.) So any toxins currently existing in our cattle industry (growth hormones, antibiotics, etc.) will also be in these gelatin capsules. Also, in the encapsulation process it is standard practice to use mineral oil. Mineral oil is basically petroleum.

So to answer all those questions that come in to us on almost a daily basis: no, Tropical Traditions does NOT offer coconut oil in gel caps, and we have no intention of doing so. Coconut oil is a traditional FOOD, not a medicine. We are not going to take advantage of our clients and give them a product that has little or no value, and could potentially be even harmful to them.
