Discovering the Health Benefits of BHT: New Research and Findings

BHT and Coconut Oil

I have been using BHT dissolved in coconut oil for years. I use the refined coconut oil exclusively because the traces of water, minerals and proteins in the raw coconut oil are catalysts for oxidation reactions and will shorten its shelf life. I use it primarily for topical applications (10% by weight, up to 15% by weight in warm climates) because I have good bile and can absorb oral BHT efficiently without need for pre-dissolving it. But if you are missing your gall bladder, have problems with higher-fat diets and difficulty absorbing fat-soluble nutrients, or just do not get good results with BHT in capsules or crystals, there is no reason why you couldn't use coconut oil to take oral BHT. I prefer it because of its low level of unsaturation. I even brush my teeth with it.
