I am wondering if there is a difference between taking the coconut oil vs the coconut butter. I have them both (organice) the oil is cold-pressed…the butter is made only from the flesh of the coconut…no other ingredients. Would the butter do the same as the oil? the butter tastes very good!
The butter is a whole food, so it makes a better food addition to the diet since it contains fiber and protein plus some of the oil. The oil is better as a supplement because of its high amounts of lauric, capric, and caprylic acid, so they both have distinct advantages as far as health.
