Yes, I tried Coconut Oil for the first time. I just put it on my face once a day and sometimes twice a day this week. I also only put a teaspoon in my mouth a few days. I started getting green soft stool in the last few days. Most of the absorbtion was probably through the skin. I stopped yesterday and today the stool is Brown and a little more hard. I wanted so much to start using the Coconut Oil. Here is the definition of Medium Chain Triglycerides;Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are medium-chain (6 to 12 carbons) fatty acid esters of glycerol.
MCTs passively diffuse from the GI tract to the portal system (longer fatty acids are absorbed into the lymphatic system) without requirement for modification like long-chain fatty acids or very-long-chain fatty acids. In addition, MCTs do not require bile salts for digestion. Patients that have malnutrition or malabsorption syndromes are treated with MCTs because they do not require energy for absorption, utilization, or storage. Coconut oil is composed of approximately 66% medium-chain triglycerides. Other rich sources of MCTs include palm kernel oil and camphor tree drupes. The fatty acids found in MCTs are called medium-chain fatty acids.

Is there a problem for us to use this?
