Dont know how accurate these tests are because there using plant cultures rather than human strains. But it seems like it could give you some indication of how it might affect our friendly flora. Its hard to believe that oregano oil had no impact. I dont like oregano oil or GSE internally they seem to really irritate the gut producing too much mucus.
---Interesting how the isolated caprylic acid affected the yogurt strains more than the coconut oil. The concentrated caprylic acid must affect the cell membrane of bacteria more. Maybe that experiment partially explains why my brother gets diarreah+cramping after eating coconut oil. Maybe high amounts of coconut oil does affect friendly bacteria in some way shape or form? Maybe coconut oil would benefit those who have more dysbiosis. I would like to see the experiment done with undeconoic acid out of curiosity. I guess sometimes you just have to listen to your gut and your bowel movements.
----Im not surprised with the results on xylitol killing all the strains. Xylitol always upset my wifes gut when she ingested it. At Vitamin stores they put it into a lot of products thinking that it is a better alternative than regular sugar. If i was healthy i would much rather have the sugar than something that could be affecting my gut flora.
