Olive Oil And Lemon Aids In Digestion

UPDATE:  I Have been doing this for about a month now.  I know it is helping with the bowel movements and my digestion is doing better, although I am not sure if it is the Olive oil and lemon juice or the digestive enzymes I am taking making the digestion better.  I know when I forget to use it, my BM's are not as easy.

With the candida supposedly out of my system, I have been left with a lot of food allergies that cause me to have acid in my stomach.  I guess I might have what they call leaky gut.  I will be posting more about leaky gut later but right now I am working on how to make my food digest better.


I decided to try Olive Oil and Lemon..... sometimes you get to a point where you will try anything.

I know it sounds strange, but this is working.  I always thought oil made me sick but.....THIS WORKS.  I have also noticed my BM's are not as hard.

This is my olive oil and lemon drink

I have these cups ready to go when we are traveling
How Does Olive Oil Aid In Digestion

The bulk of Olive Oil is monosaturated fat in the form of oleic acid.   Monosaturated fat is the easiest for the body to absorb, especially when you campare it to other saturated and polyunsaturated fats.

Olive oil slows down the passing of food from the stomach to the intestine. This in turn requires less gastric fluid thereby reducing indigestion and heartburn. With the slow and easy flow of food through the intestine the body is better able to absorb what it needs. The use of olive oil often leads to the ability to satisfy hunger with less food since it is easier digested in the stomach and the body gets longer to absorb through the intestine.

Those with ulcers  have experienced less pain when their food is prepared with olive oil. In addition, olive oil can help with constipation.  If your colon does not work properly, it can throw your whole digestive tract off.


To Aid in digestion, take 2 teaspoons of Olive Oil mixed with 2 teaspoons lemon juice before every meal.

This also works GREAT as a salad dressing.

Also.... get your self on a really good probiotic.

  1. hmm -- what a great idea, i'd never thought of this. i've recently been diagnosed with acid reflux and this might just be something that would be helpful.

    does it taste icky?

  2. you might want to try supplementing with Colustrum to help heal leaky gut. if you're lactose intolerant look for the kind made specifically for people who are.

    olive oil/lemon juice also helps keep your liver clean :)

  7. I was watching Dr. Oz awhile back and he suggested drinking a baking soda/water mixture to help acid in the stomach. Oil and lemon juice sounds tastier though. I used to have a ton of problems but the diet change since my diagnosis has taken care of a ton of it for me.

  16. Following you back from This for That! Thanks so much for linking up with us today!

    I can imagine that this would work only because lemon and olive oil have always seemed good for you in my opinion...though I suppose I don't really have a reason for feeling that way.

  30. Hubby & I do organic apple cider vinegar which totally got rid of all acid reflux (I used to not be able to lay down at night without elevating my upper body). Now if I have an acid flare up (food/drink), I take some in water and within minutes, it's gone (tbl to 8 oz water). We do krill oil, too. But I am going to try this 'cause I LOVE lemon! Just became a follower - going to check out your other posts now - great site!

  31. As a new reader I have no idea what you have already tried for your "leaky gut," but my father would agree with LBDDiaries and suggest apple cider vinegar. Another thing to try, if you haven't already, is probiotic. Oftentimes people have leaky gut because they don't have enough "good" bacteria in their stomach. It is important to buy any probiotic out of the refrigerated section of the health food store. Anything sitting on the shelf is worthless. All of the good bacteria is dead already. It needs to be refrigerated in order to be active. Of course, whatever you do, do one thing at a time so that you know what works. If you are trying them all at once, you won't know which thing actually solved the problem. Nice to have several options, though.

    So what do people think about the author, does he sound convincing enough to go ahead with a purchase?
    Let us rejoice if this post actually makes it by the forum admins. There's really no harm here. I'm just drunk :)
    Do you really have experience in this field? If so, I would like to ask you a few questions.
    This page rocks, keep up the good work.

  38. Anonymus,
    The only experience I have in this field, being candida.... Is I struggle with it myself.

    I am not selling anything. If you purchase something, it would not be from me.

    You must have digestive problems if you are searching this site. If you are drunk... maybe that could be what causes your stomach problems.

    I will answer any questions you have.... just remember. I AM NOT A DOCOTOR, I ONLY WRITE ABOUT CANDIDA FOR MY BENEFIT. If I happen to help someone else along the way... That makes me happy!!
