to which extent coconut oil ingests to a body with fluid?

  1. I am curious if consuming coconut oil by adding it to tea is well ingested by a body. I usually put a teaspoon to every cup of tea and drink several in a row since I can't stand too much coconut flavour in one cup. Is this method still effective?

Should I eat several teaspoons of coconut oil in some intervals during the day or is it the same if I eat the same amount right away in the morning?

I count on your answers you coconut oil lovers.

If you can't stand the flavor of coconut oil, why make yourself drink several cups of it in a row? 3 cups in a row with a teaspoon each seems like a lot of tea / caffeine to put down just to try to get an extra 5 or 6% of fat in your macros. My suggestion would be to eat it rather than drink it. Or, upgrade to MCT oil. In hot liquids I metabolize the stuff too quickly for the extra energy to be useful.

Simply adding 1 -1 1/2 tablespoon into already brewed cup of tea, add some raw honey and that’s it. Try Tropical Traditions Organic Virgin Gold Label. It is made in small batches and contains higher amounts of antioxidants than any other coconut oil out there.

Can't say one way or the other about how well it's absorbed with water, but I can't see how water would inhibit it's absorbtion. On the intervals vs large dose, I would say go with intervals, simply to avoid stomach upset, I guess it might provide more even energy aswell? Note, you can build yourself up to being able to digest more in a single dose without stomach upset.
