The Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) under the Department of Science and Technology (DoST) conducted a study on 3 December 2020 and found that virgin coconut oil (VCO) helps ease Covid-19 symptoms. Some 57 patients participated in the study conducted at two isolation facilities in Santa Rosa, Laguna.

For 28 days, half of the patients were given standard meals mixed with VCO while the other half consumed meals without VCO doses. Just after two days, there were already five patients with decreased Covid-19 signs and symptoms. By day 18, all of the patients who received VCO doses no longer experienced any symptoms.

The study also revealed that the patients’ who consumed meals with VCO doses showed decreasing levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a predictive marker that determines which patients are progressing to a more severe case of Covid-19.

VCO is known as the world’s healthiest oil that provides benefits not only for the body but also for face, hair and skin. It contains lauric acid and monolaurin, medium-chain fatty acids which works against gram positive bacteria, fungi and viruses.

As oils tend to freeze under colder weather, VCO capsule GROWRICH is a great alternative for people to consume. It is the first capsule form approved by the Food and Drug Administration since June 2005.
