Can pregnant women or lactating mothers consume Virgin Coconut Oil?
Coconut Oil is a food and a staple for many people in Asia, hence it is considered safe for anybody. In fact,research has shown that consuming virgin coconut oil and other coconut products help boost the levels of lauric and capric acids in the breast milk of lactating mothers, thus enhancing its immune boosting properties and promoting both brain and bone development in the baby. Having said that, if your body is used to a low-fat diet (like many in Western countries), it is unwise to begin experimenting with coconut oil while pregnant as your body will need some adjustment to the fat content.
