              Comments about plnt Coconut Oil - 15 Ounces Solid:

              I love anything that's natural and works wonders!

              A VitaminShoppe Rep told me he applies it to his body before running. This was after asking about Sweet Sweat that's very expensive.

              I bought two years last year, one I used before working out and the other was just sitting in my cabinet.

              I didn't know the health benefits of eating it, etc. until I saw it in my Twitter feed. After reading up on it, I started eating 2T a day, applying it to my skin and my hair.

              This brand taste so good! My body and hair loves it! I take a T. before I workout and have another T. with my Atkins shake (snack).

              My belly fat is decreasing, my hair has gotten thicker/shiny and my sugar cravings have decreased.

              I have recommended this to all my friends and family members.

                I use coconut oil in baking and sautéing all kinds of foods. It gives foods a light flavor, not a strong coconut taste. This oil is easily digestable as well. I will alternate with olive oil.

                Liquid not solid

                Comments about plnt Coconut Oil - 15 Ounces Solid:

                This product was supposed to be solid when it arrived there was a little ball of solid in the bottom of the jar but the rest was liquid. I finally had to put it in the fridge to get it to be solid. The purpose of this was for treatment of psoriasis and really needs to be in a solid form.

                We LOVE it! It is a TOP Quality product, good taste very mild and a very little goes LONG way too! wonderful for use inside and externally in human and animal. Our dog LOVES it as treat. It tastes great, absorbs so rapidly into skin. I use for moisturizer internally for cardiac, arthritis and other health benefits. I have heard great for cooking esp stir fry which I have not yet tried. Only Caveat is if you or housemate has allergy, as with any product, one must be aware of that! It also doesn not mix well into COLD shakes drinks. However it does melt in seconds when solid used any other way.

                    I am a borderline diabetic. My doctor told me that if I didn't change my diet I would soon be on medication. I started making healthier chooses with one of them being coconut oil. After hearing about it on Dr. Oz and doing some research, I started taking this product the first of November. I started taking 1 tsp 3 x day with meals. I now take 1/2 tbsp 3 x day with meals. My fasting morning numbers went from 112 to around 90, which is in the normal range. I am very grateful for Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and the knowledge that was shared regarding this product. Will be taking A1C test soon, hopefully those numbers have improved also.

                      Comments about plnt Coconut Oil - 15 Ounces Solid:

                      I haven't tried this specific brand of Coconut oil, but compared it to the one I use. Decent comparison. How different can you get!

                      Coconut oil is great for use on a griddle, or mixing it right in to pancakes or other foods. I use Nature's Way, which is also available from The Vitamin Shoppe. Especially good when cooking up stove top chicken, like for stir fry, because the coconut taste comes through when you eat it.

                      If by chance you get some on your fingers, don't wipe it off, rub it in. This type of cooking oil can also be used cosmetically!

                      Does not mix well with cold ingredients, because coconut oil solidifies at colder temps. Can be stored unrefrigerated and keeps in a liquid state. But if you keep the thermostat down in your house, it will get hard (white color). No problem with this. Heat up or place in a warm place. If you are adding to batter (which has cold eggs or milk), immediately mix when added. It will thaw out in the pan when it cooks.

                      Sale price on this item is good, but regular price is over-priced a little. Nature's Way, per 16oz, I get for $8.29 (I'm not supposed to tell you where!) You do the math when you check out the Vitamin Shoppe's price.

                        I am using it for my hair, skin and using it in my baked goods and cooking. I have only been using it a few weeks on my fine hair. Just a very small dab in my palm to rub on dry ends and once a week do a massage into the scalp at night of the oil. I am noticing hair growth and my hair not breaking off as much when I brush it. I am also using skin and it is making it softer and less dry looking. I have done research and it is supposed to be one of the best oils to use. It makes everything taste so delicious and it takes so little! Good thing as this is expensive. I have lost 3 pounds too. Unexpected! Who knew?

                          I read about the many benefits of coconut oil and decided to purchase this brand last yr. I am very glad i did. I tried another brand, doesnt come close to this one. This product smells great. authentic. I use it mainly for my hair as pre-poo treatments as well as moisturizer. Great for skin too. no longer use lotion.

                                  Vitaminn Shoppe"s taste and quality match a costly one that I used to special order for it's wonderful taste. When I found Vitamin Shoppe's was equally tasty, and less expensive, I switched. The smell, taste and quality is absolutely the best! It's cold pressed & organic.

                                      I love the smell and how my hair reacts to it. It really does penetrate unlike most oils, and leaves my hair shiny without that greasy feeling. I have natural 4a hair.

                                          I just Love this product. I've used this coconut oil on my hair and it has done wonders to help keep my hair soft and especially when you apply it before you shampoo/condition. I am now using it to mix with unrefined shea butter, grapeseed oil, aloe vera gel (which i also bought from you guys), glycerine and some jojoba for a nice whipped shea butter. I love the vitamin shoppe. I am a natural product junkie so it was only fair that i come here to purchase. The staff is always awesome at the frisco location!

                                              I use this on my hair and skin. I whipped it with 100% unrefined shea butter, jojoba oil and grapeseed oil. This finish is a creamy frosting-like moisturizer that I use on my hair and body. A little bit goes a long way. Makes my hair so soft (no need for conditioner). And smells great. I've also used it as a pull (look it up in google) and it makes my mouth so fresh (has natural antibacterial properties). Every now and then I'll even give my dog a teaspoon as a treat (she loves it and it's suppose to be good for their coat). I would definitely buy it again. I haven't cooked with it yet but that is something I'll have to try next. :)

It's great for the whole family, pets included. I also use it as a rub for hotspots on the dogs. No worries if they lick it off.

                                              Best Answer: Organic extra virgin coconut oil or EVCO is different from processed coconut oil that has been shown not to be that beneficial to health. EVCO can cook foods at high temperatures without changing its composition, if I understand the science correctly, and it is also healthful to the body when used correctly. Check out the National Institutes of Health library of abstracts to learn about its beneficial effects in recent studies. Some dieticians recommend this because they claim that when you restrict your fats to healthy ones like EV olive oil and EVCO, then you increase the body's metabolism and don't gain weight, but lose it. EVCO does not have a strong coconut flavor but is a little sweet. It is a good alternative to EV olive oil, which degrades at high temperatures when cooking. Provides an interesting variety to cooking.

                                              Best Answer: I use a tsp of Coconut Oil on my daily oatmeal or grits. It has its own taste of coconut so I don't prefer it on baked potatoes. Cooked brown rice can take either Coconut Oil or extra virgin olive oil. I don't eat much meat or dairy so I give attention to inserting fat into my daily diet and coconut oil is a good half of my fat intake. Olive oil isthe other half. The Vitamin Shoppe brand is good quality and the best price.

                                              Best Answer: I Love coconut oil! I use it on my skin as a body lotion, my face as moisturizer, on my hair as conditioner and most importantly to help with my food cravings at night.
                                              I put a teaspoon in a cup of either decaf coffee or a cup of tea when i get home from work. by the time dinner is ready, i don't over eat and i don't crave sweets in the evening. i will put it generally in a cup of chamomile tea if it's past 7pm to help me sleep. It takes my cravings for sweets away, but of course exercise and eating properly-it all goes hand-in-hand.
