A recent laboratory study has shown that lauric acid (lauric acid makes about half of the content of coconut oil) eliminated more than 90% of colon cancer cells after 2 days of treatment.
What is interesting is that lauric acid contaminated cancer cells by releasing intense oxidative stress and by effectively reducing the levels of glutathione in cancer cells at the same time.
Glutathione is used by cancer cells to protect from oxidative stress.
There are only few studies that have highlighted the anti-cancer properties of coconut oil.

It is a well-known fact that coconut oil can successfully eliminate bacteria, various viruses, parasites, fungi and harmful microorganisms.
