I just bought some coconut oil for the first time, and I'm really excited. I also just bought some acidophilus bifidus for the first time, and I'm also excited!
However, isn't coconut oil antibacterial? If I'm consuming that everyday as well as my probiotics, will they just cancel each other out? Is it a bad idea? I'm trying to get my gut health back on track. So.... what would be the best course of action here? What happens if I take them at the same time?

I usually take probiotic with every meal. All of my meals are cooked in coconut oil.
S??bastien No??l of Paleo Diet Lifestyle suggested that people with gut flora imbalance should take a break from coconut oil,

I've suspected I've had bad gut flora for quite some time. Coconut oil in any significant quantity destroys me. I've been taking probiotics most of this year and have cut out the coconut oil and am feeling better than I have (gut wise) in years. This is just n=1. I cannot say this correlation actually exists. It's just how I've chosen to go most of this last year.
