You’ll be shocked when we tell you that colon cancer is one of the most common cancer types, in both men and women! Yes, this is really bad, because this terrible disease takes millions of lives around the world every year! The biggest problem with this type of cancer is that the symptoms start to manifest very late and people don`t notice anything in early stages.
But, don’t worry, because there’s good news for all people concerned about this – a group of researchers have found that this powerful ingredient can kill 93% of colon cancer cells – in just 2 days! Yes, we know – this is really amazing!
Coconut oil is getting more and more attention in the last couple of years, by scientists and the public.
This oil has been used for thousands of years all around the world, because of its numerous health benefits.
Almost 50% of the coconut oil is lauric acid and, according to the research team from the University of Adelaide, it completely destroyed more than 90% of colon cancer cells after only 2 days of treatment, during the in vitro experiment. Other studies have been quoted in order to support these findings.
Lauric acid, which is also found in mother’s milk, is a fatty acid that strengthens the immune system and has strong anti-bacterial properties.
- The study involved in vitro experiments in petri dishes, as well as in vivo in rats. Both experiments gave the same results. It found that lauric acid destroys cancer cells while causing oxidative stress. This significantly reduces the level of glutathione, which cancer cells depend on.
The real problem is that research of this kind is enormously expensive and unappealing to sponsors because natural cures can’t be patented. This simply holds no interest to pharmaceuticals companies to finance such trials, despite the fact that they target the wellbeing of the entire population.
