Virgin Coconut Oil: A potential anti-viral agent against COVID-19

Wazzup Pilipinas!

After 6 months of experiments, Filipino scientists have found that compounds from coconut oil and Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) decreased coronavirus count by 60% to 90% at low viral load.

Results of the clinical trials, led by ADMU professor Fabian.Dayrit, on the efficacy of VCO against the coronavirus disease 2019 are expected to be released by the second week of November, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) said. 

Virgin coconut oil is readily available in the Philippines. I really hope the claims are supported well. On the other hand if this is true...VCO prices will surely skyrocket.

DOST is a very credible science-based institution. I trust their study. I think native guava and broccoli also have strong anti-viral and anti oxidant properties. I hope our local scientists will explore other food medicines as well.

I am a believer of VCO's curing properties. Hopefully, it can also help the fight against COVID-19.

But I'm still waiting for the VCO data/paper to come out para ma-scrutinize. Amy announcement of efficacy and the like must be accompanied by data. Otherwise, PR lang talaga yan. Yun lang.

May statement sila about viral loads and upregulation daw ng immune response. Ano kayang data nila doon?

Parang from the outset mild cases lang talaga yung inenroll so talagang dapat well controlled and powered yung trials... Yung naalala kong explanation nila, the lipids interfere with the viral envelope. Ginawang sabon.

I've always wondered what came out of it and why the funding agency thought it's a priority (based on them canceling other proposals due to being non-priority).

"The results are very promising, as not only does it show that the VCO, by itself, can destroy the virus, but it also has a key mechanism in upregulating the immune response against COVID-19"

These are bold claims that will need data to support them.

If you do decide to try it make sure it’s the raw organic unrefined virgin coconut oil

Ang Pilipinas ay mayaman sa puno ng niyog at ayon sa mga expert Biologist isa ang bansa natin sa may maraming species ng mga herbal plant at ang karamihan dito hindi pa nai-eexplore ng dalubhasa. Tatlo sa kagubatan ng Pilipinas ang maraming klase ng halaman na di pa nadidiscover ng mga experts. 

Baka yumaman ang Pilipinas Kung susuplayan ng niyog ang halos lahat ng bansa.

Kaso, buong mundo ang hindi pa nakakadiscover ng madami pang mga micro-organism kaya darating ang mga taon na magkakaroon ulit ng panibagong virus dahil na rin sa lumalalang climate change at global warming. 

Sana talaga virgin coconut oil ay maging mabisa sa Corona virus para hindi na tayo magkaroon ng problema sa vaccine ng ibang bansa. Need pa natin malaking pondo kapag sa iba ang gagamitin.
