Horrible Mct Oil Reaction: A Warning
I eat a high fat diet, mostly coconut oil and butter. Lately, I have been interested in trying MCT oil, so when I saw my friend had some Brain Octane on her counter, I asked if I could try a dose. I took one tablespoon with some water on an empty stomach. about 15 minutes later I ate some gluten free organic animal crackers and pistachios. Soon afterwards I became extreamly naseaus and sensitive to heat. The reaction progressed to tiny bumps all over my skin, feeling itchy all over, and my breathing became week. My partner considered taking me to the hospital. It was one of the worst feelings I have ever had.
I have never had allergies in my life, to anything.
I ended up googling "MCT oil allergy". This link came up... (about how MCT oil may create food allergies)
My major business is a nutfarm. could this make me permenantly allergic to nuts?
I just recovered from the 5 hour experience. The worst probably lasted no more than an hour. I now feel 98% better. I will try nuts again in a day or so.
