Coconut Oil for IBS: Keep those Pipes Clean and Flowing Steadily
Coconut oil for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) helps relieve abdominal pain, prevent bloating and restore regular stool movement, the safe and natural way.
While the exact cause of irritable bowel syndrome or spastic colon is still unknown, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that keeping the intestines healthy is “key” to preventing IBS.
Your Digestive System Loves Coconut Oil
The digestive system is coconut oil’s specialty because that’s where most of the immune system resides. 80 percent of your entire immune system is in your gut.
When it comes to boosting your immune system, no dietary fat or oil compares to the greatness of the one and only coconut oil. Period!
Coconut oil is different from other fats because it is 67 percent Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA), a rare type of fatty acid endowed with amazing health properties.
Unlike antibiotics that have been used to treat “inflammatory bowel diseases,” MCFAs don’t kill the essential good bacteria that inhabit your intestines. But they do destroy far more than just bad bacteria.
MCFAs inactivate viruses, yeasts, parasites, fungi, worms, protozoa, etc. Not even the AIDS virus (HIV) can withstand their awesome antimicrobial punch. Imagine all that firepower and without causing the least bit of harm. Incredible!
Intestinal Healing and Balance
MCFA-packed coconut oil helps protect and heal inflamed tissues along your intestinal tract. It assists in balancing the environment in your gut, putting your colon on the fast track to working normally again.
Before coconut oil became an integral part of my diet, I mostly had loose bowel movements, and an erratic one at that.
After about a week of taking one tablespoon of coconut oil daily, my stool became solid and soft consistently. Since then, I’ve been enjoying my trips to the toilet almost all of the time.
Coconut oil cleans, polishes, nourishes and strengthens colon tissues, thus ending irritation and restoring proper bowel activity.
