Study Concludes That Coconut Oil Could Be Used To Prevent The Clostridium Difficile Virus
Could Coconut Oil be the solution to hospital superbugs?
Treating Clostridium difficile costs the NHS millions of pounds every year and current medications are to expensive; while more research is required, research has shown that virgin coconut oil could have the potential to help beat this common hospital infection.
The study investigated whether the lipids in virgin coconut oil could help control an outbreak of Clostridium difficile and the fatty acids contained in virgin coconut oil were tested to see if their antimicrobial effects could help to defeat the virus.
It was discovered the Lauric acid that is an ingredient of coconut oil could prevent the growth of Clostridium difficile; it prevented the growth of bacteria by almost 100%. The study also showed caprylic acid and Capric acid could also help to inhibit the growth of the virus within the hospital.
There have been several previous studies and each of them has shown that coconut oil can help to protect against this hard to treat hospital virus, and it is believed that virgin coconut oil could help to limit the growth of Clostridium difficile in the gut.
Scientists also state the virgin coconut oil is a safe way to treat patients and doesn't have the side effects as the current medications used within the hospital.
