The good thing about eating coconut oil straight out of the jar is that you can instantly obtain its powerful antimicrobial properties which will quickly stimulate your immune system to produce more antibodies.
You need tons of antibodies to help you fight viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites and other menacing germs that are always lurking somewhere inside your body, sneaking around waiting for the best opportunity to strike you down.
Eating coconut oil straight from jar also helps to stop the destructive free-radical reactions immediately since coconut oil carries about 80–90% saturated fats.
That’s good too since free radicals are the main culprit for causing arterial inflammation and hence, increasing your risk of getting heart disease.
Eating straight coconut oil also raises your metabolism faster for tissue healing and burning of excess body fats.
But all the good stuff I just mentioned by simply consuming coconut oil directly from the container come with a price.
It is bad for some people as the oil will quickly break down into thousands of glycerols and medium-chain fatty acids that will trigger diarrhea-like symptoms (bloating, stomach cramp, loosening of bowels), especially when your stomach is empty.
That’s the side effects of taking coconut oil straight from jar. It’s pretty bad because the effect can be so intense that make you feel miserable for several hours even after a few bowel movements.
I wouldn’t stop you if you find it benefits you more this way because you treat it as a detox and use it to help cleanse your colon. Many people are doing the same. They use coconut oil to help them relieve constipation which kind of “reboot” their digestive system so that their gut can perform properly again.
That’s really cool. But it can be taxing and can hurt your butt if you do that frequently.
If you love eating coconut oil straight from the jar, a workaround to help you prevent the diarrhea effect is that you must make sure your stomach has already had some food inside. On top of that, don’t shove two tablespoonfuls of coconut oil all at once into your mouth. Spread out the doses.
This will help to slow the digestion of coconut oil into its bowel-stimulating components. You will still get the urge though, but the intervals between bowel movements would become longer and seem more natural.
