Do I recommend mineral oil for constipation?
Firstly, mineral oil is a petroleum product. It’s a by-product from crude oil refineries. Several products stem from the process of making gasoline – baby oil and Vaseline intensive care, for example.
My question is, why would anyone want to drink a product related to crude oil? These products contain chemicals called alkanes and cycloalkanes. They say this is a harmless mixture, but there was a time when car exhaust and cigarette smoking were also considered safe. Don’t buy into the claim that all artificial compounds are harmless, and all pharmaceutical drugs are harmless. Some people even claim that natural remedies will make you sick, and what you need are products from factories.

You don’t need mineral oil for constipation. Sure, it might work, but consider where it comes from.
If you want to use an oil for constipation, use olive oil. Olive oil has the added advantage of containing acids that help expel toxins from the liver and gallbladder. Olive oil is natural, it contains antioxidants, and it’s safe.
When olive oil gets into the digestive tract, it coats parts of the colon and stool, making the movement of stool much easier. Why settle for mineral oil when you can use a natural product like olive oil?
