The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) has started the clinical trials on the efficacy of virgin coconut oil (VCO) as a food supplement for Covid-19 patients and speed up their recovery. This was disclosed by DOST Secretary Fortunato dela Peña as they aim to show that those who take VCO as part of their daily diet will recover faster.
However, Secretary dela Peña said they would still secure the patient’s consent. Watch below.
Further, one of those clinical studies is being conducted by Ateneo de Manila University professor emeritus Dr Fabian Dayrit.
