Nutrition experts warn of a widely spread method followed by a large number of influential figures on social media to get rid of excess weight.

The method involves drinking a type of vegetable oil to “cleanse” the body and lose weight, which is castor oil, which is widely used for massage and skin care.

User Maryam Hampton, who specializes in publishing skin health tips on TikTok, shared her experience with her 102,000 followers, and said: “Get ready for the biggest cleansing process. You will go to the bathroom all day, but you will feel lighter. I take castor oil about Oral route every few months.

She added, "Castor oil is generally great for your health and skin. So, I really like castor oil and I think everyone should try it."

Maryam's post generated a wave of conflicting comments, as many users were unsure whether castor oil was really safe to drink.

In this regard, nutrition expert GQ Jordan says that taking castor oil for weight loss is “more of a fad than a reality.” 

She added: “Although it may cause temporary weight loss due to its laxative effects, it does not contribute to sustainable fat loss. Real and sustainable weight loss comes from balanced nutrition, regular exercise and healthy habits.”

Castor oil consists mostly of ricinoleic acid, which has a strong effect on the intestines, even in small doses. This especially helps those who suffer from constipation, as the acids stimulate muscle contractions that help move stool through the digestive tract.

"Weight loss is usually due to water loss, not decreased body fat," Jordan explained. "Drinking castor oil can lead to some unpleasant side effects: cramps, diarrhea, nausea, and dehydration."
