Human CMV is just one of many pathogenic organisms killed by Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA).
There are very few MCFA sources, of which, coconut oil is the most prolific.
Like the herpes simplex virus (HSV) 1 & 2, Epstein-Barr virus, and other relatives, CMV is "safely and effectively" neutralized by MCFA-rich coconut oil. But unlike pharmaceutical drugs, coconut oil has no side effects.
Foscarnet, valganciclovir, cidofovir and ganciclovir are some of the antiviral drugs used to control cytomegalovirus. Check out some of their combined side effects according to drugs.com:
Kidney poisoning, diarrhea, hair loss, vomiting, weakness, severe allergic reactions, chest pain, depression, stomach pain, sudden weight gain, anxiety, fatigue, joint pain, vision problems, fainting, genital ulcers, rectal bleeding, seizures, urination problems, itching, difficulty breathing, fever, sore throat, back pain, constipation, trouble sleeping, swelling of the mouth, irregular heartbeat, severe headache, unusual bruising or bleeding, etc...
Phew! That's a lot of backlash...
Coconut Oil is Effective AND Safe
I don't know about you but I'd rather take "anything" which counteracts CMV without a single known adverse reaction. In the world of fats and oils, that "anything" is coconut oil.
Coconut oil is so safe, it's on the FDA or Food & Drug Administration's exclusive "Generally Regarded As Safe" (GRAS) list. Only foods that have passed rigid testing and have a history of safe usage can be included on this list.
While cytomegalovirus infections are pretty common, symptoms are basically so mild that they go unnoticed. A normal functioning immune system is sufficient to silence CMV. However, some people with compromised body defenses develop serious infections that can be life threatening.
Lauric acid, Capric acid and Caprylic acid, the three super-antimicrobial MCFAs of coconut oil are intolerant of CMV. No dietary fat or oil boosts your immune system more than coconut oil can. None!
Coconut oil rids your body of cytomegalovirus, the safe and natural way.
