Coconut Oil is an Anti-Bacterial but not an Anti-Viral
Hello Everyone. I just wanted to give a quick PSA because we at Coconutz are receiving emails and posts suggesting that Coconut Oil is good for all kinds of things including Covid-19 (Corona Virus).
Well, know this. There is plenty of research out there that demonstrates the efficacy of Coconut Oil as an Anti-Bacterial (part of the reason that we at Coconutz chose Coconut Oil as the base in our products) but, there is no pear researched or journal research to support any claims to Coconut Oil as an effective Anti-Viral.
The best thing you can do is wash your hands frequently using warm water and soap. Soap will pierce the cell membrane of the virus and destroy it. This is even more effective when washing for 20 seconds because you now add mechanical friction.
Stay safe out there and remember, we will get through this too.
