What Is Virgin Coconut Oil?
Virgin Coconut Oil which has a pleasant odor came from the fresh meat of the coconut. The coconut meat is often cold pressed to obtain the oil, sometimes the meat is dried up and preserved before being processed into oil. Virgin Coconut Oil is different from a regular coconut oil since they are unrefined, not bleached, and not deodorized. The oil is also produce through expeller pressed method and not expelled using chemicals or solvent. Virgin Coconut Oil is much more nutritious since the vitamins, polyphenols, fatty acids and antioxidants are maintained. Since it is not refined you will see a lot coconut flavor in the oil.
What Are The Benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil?
The combination of fatty acids in the coconut oil may have positive effects on your health, like boosting fat loss, healthy heart, and improve brain function.
The fatty acids in coconut oil helps burn fat and gives you energy since that fats in it are medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) that is processed immediately by your liver giving you energy and turning them into ketones.
A study from the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that consuming 15–30 grams of medium-chain triglycerides daily increased the subjects energy expenditure by 5%.
Is Virgin Coconut Oil Effective Against Coronavirus (COVID19) and other Bacteria?There is a high level of a substance called lauric acid in coconut oil, approximately 45–53 %. According to this study posted on the Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy lauric acid can eliminate viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Here's a study from Journal of Bacteriology that shows that lauric acid and glycerol monolaurate which are both found in Virgin Coconut Oil effectively inhibits staph infections. Another study from Journal of Medicinal Food shows antimicrobial properties of coconut oil against yeast infections.
Against Coronavirus (COVID19) according to this report by CBS Virgin Coconut Oil is effective against viruses, influenza, cold, and flu. Dr. Mary Enig who is a noted nutritional biochemist and an advocate of virgin coconut oil explained in her studies how Virgin Coconut Oil fight viruses like coronavirus, "Influenza, cold, flu viruses have a lipid cell wall. At the point of reproduction the virus attaches lipids molecules in the human tissue to build their cell walls. As a result it replicates itself rapidly and the infected person shows bad symptoms of the disease and suffers. In the presence of coconut oil the viruses grab the coconut oil lipids, mainly lauric acid molecules, to build their cell walls as they reproduce. Later the lauric acid molecules drops off from the lipid cell wall and a hole is formed in the cell wall. This leads to rupture of the cell wall and the virus dies. This occurs in all viruses that need lipids to build their cell walls."
Dr. Peter Achutha using Dr. Mary Enig's research studied and tested coconut oil against common cold virus and he said it was very effective. He said "Don't wait for a vaccine any longer as it may never come. Use virgin coconut oil as a potential cure for Covid-19. Many doctors do not know about VCO and therefore never prescribe it. It is not taught in medical school. Virgin Coconut Oil is not a medical drug but a food sold in supermarkets. Look at governments around the world. They are spending billions of dollars to prevent their economies from collapsing due to the corona virus. If they had spent a fraction of that for a cure over the past pandemics, would cities be in shut down and businesses closed out of fear today?"

In the Philippines, CNN reports that they are using virgin coconut oil on COVID-19 patients. Department of Science and Technology said clinical trials of virgin coconut oil aim to see if it could speed up the recovery of people infected with the new coronavirus. Patients in the Philippine General Hospital in Manila and the Santa Rosa Community Hospital in Laguna will join the clinical trial, as reported here.
According to Fabian M. Dayrit, president of Integrated Chemists of the Philippines and chemistry professor at Ateneo de Manila University, "Coconut oil is a unique vegetable oil in that it has a high proportion of lauric acid; no other widely consumed vegetable oil has this. When ingested into the body, the body’s lipase enzymes release metabolites, which are the active compounds—mainly monolaurin and lauric acid. Monolaurin and lauric acid have the physicochemical property of being able to destroy the membrane of lipid-coated viruses. Because the virus that causes COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) is a lipid-coated virus, coconut oil seems promising."
It seems the cure or treament for Coronavirus (COVID19) is right under our noses, and they are readily available in supermarket stores and they are cheap. Well it's so much better than injecting Clorox in your body.
