Are you taking it everyday and for 3 months already. If you are not experiencing any side effects, I guess its okay to continue. Afterall its not a medication made chemically. But I would not, just in case taking something for so long may become ineffective like you are immuned to its nutritious value and benefits. I come from Asia, where we do a lot of cooking with coconut oil, coconut milk/cream, coconut shavings/gratings and drinking coconut juice from real fresh coconut. I will be cautious too of how your VCO is manufactured and how authentic is your VCO etc. *

It's a food and used in cooking, not a medicine. It won't do you any harm.

If it replaces other sustained energy foods, then there is no effect. Why are you drinking VCO anyway? It's only empty calories. You're supposed to cook with it to replace other oils so you don't get excessive omega 6s. You do need a little omega 6 though, but more EPA & DHA omega 3s (fish fat) and a high ratio of omega 3 to omega 6. ALA omega 3s, found in walnut oil and olive oil also help but these oils have omega 6s too. So, um, cook with a small amount of walnut oil or olive oil as a 2nd choice. For larger amounts make the rest coconut oil. Eat lots of seafood. And don't start downing random things because of the latest fad without learning why first. EDIT: Googled about using coconut oil for sustained energy and you get weight loss for that reason. Wowowow, just eat your starches. This is no different than getting sustained energy from bread. Better yet, make them whole grains to get nutrients with your energy. Studies have shown whole grains are better for weight loss too. People are getting too crazy about loathing everything normal and wanting to try the latest fad. I remember watching not too old British shows where some people were fit or getting fit on a bunch of rice and pasta, and those aren't even close to the best starches. But they have at least as much nutrients as coconut oil. No way that would fly in America anymore.
