MANILA, Philippines — Initially, 39-year-old Mark Saberola experienced chills followed by a fever.
On the third day of his being sick, doctors ordered a swab test on all of Saberola's family members. By that time, Saberola's wife and kids were already experiencing symptoms.
“The tests turned out positive and we had our three kids tested also and five relatives who had close contact with us. All the kids tested positive with symptoms while two of our relatives tested positive without symptoms. The three were negative," said Saberola, general manager of ValuePlus Auto Services Philippines Inc., and founder and CEO of car maintenance and repair app AutoServed.
By the fifth day, he had lost his senses of smell and taste. Doctors also ordered an X-Ray on the 10th day. The reading indicated the onset of pneumonia.
Saberola's fever was between 38-39 degrees Celsius but it lasted for over two weeks. He also had occasional coughing. The doctors (an internist and a cardiologist were monitoring the family's health situation), however, advised against getting admitted to a hospital until the situation worsened. Thankfully, it did not come to that.
Among the medication and vitamins prescribed by Saberola's doctors were antibiotics for pneumonia, paracetamol for the fever and a number of vitamins and supplements, including a Vitamin C with Zinc and GROWRICH Virgin Coconut Oil Capsules.
Saberola would take two GROWRICH VCO Capsules with his meals.
"We've been taking it since our diagnosis to this day," he said.
When he finally tested negative for COVID-19, Saberola continued to drink the vitamins prescribed by the doctors, including GROWRICH VCO Capsules.
After his COVID-19 ordeal, Saberola had to limit going to the office to two times a week from six times before he got sick.
"It takes me a while to recover after driving to and from work or doing errands. My quality of sleep has also changed since," he said.

Virgin coconut oil is extracted from a single press of fresh coconut meat that’s been grated and dried for two hours at a temperature lower than 40 degrees Celsius.
