Is Coconut Oil Making Me Tired?

I slept for 9 hours last night, and another 2 hours this afternoon. I just started taking coconut oil again yesterday. I was falling asleep in the middle of the day the same way a couple weeks ago when I was taking coconut oil. My eyes just won't stay open and I doze off on the couch while the children are running around the house. Is it the coconut oil, or something else?

Could it be you're allergic to the coconut oil?

 

I suppose it's possible, but it seems unlikely to me. I don't have any other food allergies, and it doesn't appear to be a common allergic reaction to coconut oil.

 

Apparently there's a rare genetic disorder where people can't break down medium chain fatty acids like those in coconut oil, but that normally presents in infancy and I've definitely had stresses to my system that would have triggered it before now.

Yes, some ppl have "die off" from coco oil due to antibacterial/ fungal properties.

 

Thank God people are figuring this out LOL I wish I had known sooner. Sharing the message thank goodness 😄
