Coconut Oil Herpes: Blast the Virus and Get Rid of Painful Blisters

Coconut oil for herpes? With its ability to destroy lipid-coated viruses, coconut oil can cure and protect you from herpes.

Kill the virus and you cure the disease, right. Plain and simple. But how is it coconut oil can kill viruses and “others can’t.”

Unlike other dietary fats such as soybean and corn oils, coconut oil is packed with a special type of fat molecules called medium chain fatty acids (MCFA). These relatively rare fatty acids are the muscle behind coconut oil’s incredible antimicrobial properties.

Of all the microorganisms that MCFAs can vaporize, those that are encased in a lipid or fat membrane, like the herpesviruses, are the most vulnerable. MCFA-loaded coconut oil annihilates the lipid-coated herpes simplex virus (HSV-1 and -2), as well as other members of theherpesviridae family of viruses.

Coconut oil is able to penetrate the outer membrane of the herpes virus and weaken it to the point that it breaks down, effectively neutralizing the virus. Say goodbye to painful blisters.

The herpes simplex virus is just one of the many viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites and other harmful organisms that die in the presence of super-antimicrobialcoconut oil.
