Castor Oil for Your Health

You may have heard of castor oil being a remedy for constipation, but did you know that it is also a remedy for dysentery, inflammatory bowel disease, bladder and vaginal infections, and asthma? It has also been used as an “antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal” as well as for the treatment of skin conditions, pain reduction, and to help stimulate your immune and lymphatic systems. The healing property of castor oil is said to come from a unique fatty acid. In contrast, castor oil comes from the castor seed that contains a potent toxin called ricin, though not present in castor oil.[1]

Though castor oil has many benefits, be cautious when using since there are some possible side effects, such as skin reactions and irritation to your intestinal wall.
