COCONUT OIL

Coconut Oil

Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) have been used for decades to help people get energy quick (they are often used to feed the patients through IVs).

You can buy MCTs fairly easily (I can give anyone sources I use to get it - I have been making my mayo out of MCT oil). Probably the cheapest source of MCT comes from coconut oil. Coconut oil also has the advantage of having lauric acid (~48%) which turns into monolaurin in the gut - a powerful antimicrobial agent - found in mother's milk to help combat infections.

A good website on coconut oil is: www.coconut-info.com

The book should be required reading for anyone with Crohn's disease and we wish gastroenterologists would read it as well. The diet is a real alternative to the drug based therapy from the medical community.
