Are there any possible “side effects” to Virgin Coconut Oil?
If your body is used to a low-fat diet regimen, you may experience digestive issues or even diarrhea after consuming VCO. Diarrhea or even sinus problems may also occur due to the antiviral, antibacterial and antioxidant properties of coconut oil killing off some of the bacteria and viruses in the body. This seemingly negative side effect can be reduced or avoided all together if you start with a small daily dose of VCO (1 tablespoon or less) with meals and gradually increase to the recommended serving after the first week to allow the body to adjust.
