Coconut oil for colitis? ALL problems of the digestive system can be fixed with the help of coconut oil. And that includes problems with the colon.
Colitis or colonitis is an inflammation of the mucous membrane that lines the colon or large intestine. Colitis can also be used to refer to any of a number of disorders involving the colon.
Viruses, parasites or bacteria are known causes of colitis. No wonder coconut oil is so good for colon health.
Medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) generously present in coconut oil kill a long list of viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, etc. MCFAs are so potent that even the AIDS virus can not stand up against them.
Unnecessary or prolonged use of antibiotics can also cause colitis. Antibiotics do not distinguish between good and bad bacteria. Beneficial bacteria living in the intestine are needlessly killed, allowing toxin-producing bacteria to proliferate.
Unlike antibiotics, MCFA-rich coconut oil destroys disease-causing organisms without harming helpful ones. Coconut oil is a natural antibiotic, minus the downside!
Because MCFAs can rapidly feed cells, coconut oil also boosts cellular activity, essential in healing and repairing your colon at an accelerated rate.
