Coconut vs H1N1

“There is no drug that has been proven to be effective against the virus. Our best cure is prevention. And VCO helps do that effectively,” said former Agriculture Secretary and President of the Federation of Free Farmers Rep. Leonardo Montemayor.

“O Servants of Allah (God) seek remedy.

Allah who caused ailment, also brought cure and redemption”

Experts say there are a lot of cheap, available means to protect oneself from contracting the deadly H1N1 Influenza A strain (Swine flu), such as consuming coconut products, particularly virgin coconut oil (VCO). Virgin coconut oil is derived from fresh coconuts. (extra virgin coconut oil) is Colorless and crystal clear. It has light, fresh coconut aroma, and has very light viscosity.

Virgin coconut oil has natural properties that boost the immune system to avoid catching the strain.

“There is no drug that has been proven to be effective against the virus. Our best cure is prevention. And VCO helps do that effectively,” said former Agriculture Secretary and President of the Federation of Free Farmers Rep. Leonardo Montemayor.

Virgin coconut oil has long been advocated by industry leaders, members of the academe, and loyal consumers as an immune-system boosting product that helps fights several viruses, including even HIV.

Dr. Tess Espino of the University of the Philippines-Los Baños says there is scienfitic basis for the claim, since VCO has lauric acid, a natural anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal compound.

“The natural derivative of lauric acid, monolaurin, actually breaks down the barriers surrounding the virus’ cells, effectively destroying the virus,” she explains.

Espino says the recommended dosage for VCO to be effective is 3 tablespoons a day.

But Montemayor adds there are also many other ways one can consume VCO or coconut, such as using the oil to cook, or eating directly from a coconut.

Both Montemayor and Espino clarify that VCO itself is not a cure, but that if the virus is contracted, then it would still be effective in minimizing the impact of the strain.

  • The oil promotes weight loss as well as weight maintenance
  • It provides a source of antimicrobial lipid

GM: Do not take ‘Air Kelapa Muda’ for granted anymore, seriously! I’ve heard quiet sometimes ago that one of the exotic drinks in Japan came all the way from here and is called ‘Coconut Milk’.   Truly this land is called “the Golden Soil”.  Anyone interested to sell coconut plantation?
