Today we wanted to talk about anti-viral foods.
A virus is a small infectious agent that can only replicate inside the living cells of other organisms. Viruses can infect all types of life forms — humans, animals, plants, and microorganisms, including bacteria and archaea. They’re found in almost every ecosystem on Earth, and they’re the most abundant type of biological entity.
The scary thing about contracting a virus is that antibiotics do not work. Vaccines are also unpredictable, and viruses, including those that cause AIDS and viral hepatitis, evade these vaccine-induced immune responses and result in chronic infections.
Monolaurin and Lauricidin are the first components on the natural treatments of viruses since they make the fats in the cells soluble and causing the disintegration of the microbial membrane, aka, the virus cannot reproduce and therefore dies.
The primary sources of lauric acid are:
- coconut oil — the highest natural source of lauric acid
- coconut cream, raw
- coconut cream, canned
- fresh shredded coconut
- coconut cream pudding
- coconut milk
- human breast milk
Coconut is an amazing food and has so many other incredible benefits. Take a good look at the below picture and pick your favourites.
