Researchers from the Athlone Institute of Technology in Ireland found that enzyme-treated coconut oil – similar to what would happen to coconut oil after it’s been digested — was able to stop the growth of cavity-causing bacteria.
The finding, presented at the Society for General Microbiology’s conference, could lead to a new approach to dental care products, study researcher Dr. Damien Brady said in a statement.
“Incorporating enzyme-modified coconut oil into dental hygiene products would be an attractive alternative to chemical additives, particularly as it works at relatively low concentrations,” Brady said in the statement. “Also, with increasing antibiotic resistance, it is important that we turn our attention to new ways to combat microbial infection.”
