Emily T Posted August 19, 2013 Share Posted August 19, 2013 I am trying to use coconut oil as an antibacterial and an antifungal as I am beginning a whole30 modification to combat SIBO. Of course I know that the real thing is most likely better than a pill form, but I have been experiencing pretty bad nausea and diarrhea when I eat virgin coconut oil (mostly when I eat it from the jar and sometimes when I cook with it). I do not get it from the softgels. edit to add - the amount that I have been taking is usually 1-2 teaspoons (max) with food. But before I commit to making the switch, I wanted to know, do the tablets have the same antibacterial/antifungal properties as the pure oil? What about refined coconut oil? The type of capsules I have are these: http://www.amazon.com/Foods-Virgin-Coconut-1000mg-Softgels/dp/B0019LTJ7O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1376926782&sr=8-1&keywords=coconut+oil+capsules Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
