Study about antiseptic action of coconut oil.

I love walking through organic shops and discovering new products. A while back I discovered Amanprana coconut oil and started using it for stir-frying veggies. Based on a friend's suggestion, I now use the same coconut oil after my shower. It makes my skin blissfully soft. Tip: I hold the container under the hot shower water so the oil melts and it's easier to rub on.

Researchers at the Athlone Institute of Technology (AIT) in Ireland have discovered that coconut oil effectively prevents the growth of harmful oral bacteria. By calling a halt to these harmful oral bacteria, mouth infections, dental cavities and also Candida albicans have little chance.

The researchers actually wanted to mimic the human digestion of various types of vegetable oils by enzymes. They then exposed these oils that had been digested by enzymes to all kinds of bacteria. And thus also to Streptococcus mutans which often occurs in the mouth. Streptococcus mutans is a bacterium that produces acids which result in tooth decay. By interacting with Candida albicans, Streptococcus mutans can also cause fungal infections (Candida albicans).

The AIT researchers found that several bacteria had no chance with coconut oil. Coconut oil did not give bacterial growth and its consequential acid and fungus formation a chance. Coconut oil was the only oil in the study that could do this. Dr. D. Brady, one of the researchers, concluded moreover that on the one hand, coconut oil can give your immune system an enormous boost. And that on the other hand, coconut oil can thwart pathogens that cause illness (micro-organisms) in the mouth, intestines and elsewhere.

Coconut oil stops tooth decay and Candida albicans by blocking Streptococcus mutans bacteria

Coconut oil is amply contained in Amanprana mouth oil (Mint and Fennel). In Amanprana mouth oil, coconut oil is enhanced with antiseptic essential oils of herbs. A study in the Netherlands proved the antiseptic action of Amanprana mouth oil against lactic acid bacteria. Amanprana mouth oil is 0% chemicals and 100% natural, 100% organic and 100% active.
