For years people chose coconut oil instead of olive oil because of the many benefits coconut oil had to offer. Even though, that maybe true there is one more thing that extra virgin olive oil can add to its many benefits and that is oleocanthal. An antioxidant which, when added to cancer cells it completely wipes out the cancer cells, while leaving your healthy cells alone.
There have been findings from researchers that say oleocanthal can rupture the cancer cell, because it can penetrate through the lysosomal of the cell which stores the waste. These lysosomal membranes are very large and fragile in the cancer cells than normal healthy cells. This makes the cancer cells open to any type of compound that can penetrate its wall.
The amount of oleocanthal that was used to destroy these cancer cells was roughly about a one sixth of a cup which can be digested through your mouth or apply topically to your skin with soap, lotion or body butter that contains extra virgin olive oil in its ingredients. When applying your handmade soap, lotion or body butter to your skin it will penetrate to your blood stream.
Whatever you put on your skin will go to your bloodstream.
