Coconut oil parasites? Consuming coconut oil regularly can keep your body free of these bloodsuckers. This strengthens your immune system because your intestinal tract is purged of nutrient-robbing parasites.
There are two major categories of parasites: Worms like roundworms and tapeworms, and One-celled organisms called Protozoa
The single-celled giardia is particularly menacing. Their durable outer coat protects them from the chlorine used to kill harmful organisms in public water supplies. As a result, they usually pass through water purification treatments untouched, ready to cause some damage to your health.
Municipal water supplies can become infected with giardia and other parasites when they are contaminated by sewage or animal waste. Outbreaks, usually in smaller cities, happen all the time without you even knowing about them.
Below are some of the symptoms attributed to giardia and other intestinal parasites:
The good news is coconut oil's plentiful Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA) can defend you from parasites. Not only that. MCFAs are relentless in fighting bacteria, viruses and fungi, pretty much in the same way they are merciless in combating parasites.
Here in the Philippines, we use coconut oil to purge worms out of our intestines. You see, MCFA-rich coconut oil and parasites simply don't get along with each other. But when we desire maximum results, we bring out the big guns. Dried coconut! Yup.
Dried coconut has been found to be even more effective than coconut oil in expelling parasitic worms, to name one. Getting rid of parasites by eating coconut meat is a traditional practice here, as well as in India and other coconut producing countries.
Coconut meat is rich in fiber. Note that not all fibers have the ability to eliminate parasites. Acting as a vermifuge is an important coconut fiber benefit not found in other fibers. A vermifuge is simply a medicine or agent serving to discharge worms or other animal parasites from the intestines.
