Coconut has high fiber content. But coconut oil does not have fiber. In fact, all dietary oils have zero fiber content. They're made up of purely triglycerides. You probably think that coconut oil has fiber because it softens your stool and loosens your bowels, right?
I had the same thought when I first got started back in 2006. But after digging into its nutrition facts, I realized that coconut oil contains no dietary fiber at all. It is actually the medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) in it that make your stool soft and stimulate bowel movement.
For that reason, constipation sufferers are getting relieved of their constipation with coconut oil. If you're not constipated, coconut oil can help make your bowel movement more regular, thereby improving your bowel health as a whole.
