(Coconut oil is a superfood. It does not raise your cholesterol levels. The cholesterol thing is just a scare-scam anyway. And a person should also eat fermented cod liver oil. Forget all the other cod liver and fish liver oils. Blue Ice has the only fermented cold liver oil, which is real food. Also see Coconut Oil and Alzheimers, etc.)

According to our own Dr. Mary Enig, two to three tablespoons of coconut oil per day appears to be an adequate dosage to fight infection, even from virulent antibiotic-resistant organisms such as MSRA.
There are lots of ways to get coconut oil into the diet: stir coconut oil in some tea; make macaroons; replace some of the butter in baking with coconut oil; and use it in cooking/sautéing. Mary’s oil blend (see below) is a good way to incorporate coconut oil in cooking and salad dressings.
