Scientists have investigated the effects of aromatic oil on COVID-19. They found the product was effective in treating coronavirus-related lung disease.
Filipino scientists have found that a diet high in extra virgin coconut oil reduces blood levels of coronavirus by 60-90% in cases of mild to moderate severity. Clinical trials will determine if the product can be used as adjunctive therapy for patients with COVID-19, reports Daily Sabah.
Experts believe the results of the study are promising. They talk about the ability of coconut oil to suppress the virus and enhance the immune response against COVID-19.
Earlier, scientists found the ability to suppress coronavirus in a popular spice. It is a substance called piperine, which is found in black pepper. It can suppress the action of the parts of the coronavirus responsible for penetration into the human body and subsequent reproduction, the researchers explained.
