MONOLAURIN

Updated: Sep 25, 2021



Monolaurin is a fat compound found in and made from coconut oil. It’s also present in breast milk. It first became available in the 1960’s as a nutritional formulation with potent antimicrobial with antibacterial and antiviral effects. Monolaurin is used to treat chronic viral and bacterial infections including Epstein Barr, Flu, Herpes, Lyme, Shingles and more


Source: Coconut oil derivative


 

Benefits:


Antibacterial: Monolaurin has been seen to be effective against gram-positive bacteria. Due to the difference in cell membranes in gram positive and gram negative bacteria, it is less effective in treatment for gram-negative infection


Antiviral: Monolaurin helps to disintegrate the fatty protective coating of viruses, rendering the viral capsule exposed so the immune system can inactivate the virus itself. It is being studied for treatment in chronic EBV, measles, herpes simplex virus, flu, pneumonia and even shown some benefit against HIV.


Antifungal: Studies have shown monolaurin to be effective against overgrowth of Candida albicans


Immune Boosting: Evidence suggests that monolaurin helps immune cell proliferation and in generating T-cells


Risks: People suffering from either Multiple Sclerosis or chronic gut inflammation may not do well with monolaurin supplementation and should be monitored by a treating physician


Pregnant or breastfeeding women should not take monolaurin before consulting with a healthcare professional


 

Sustainability: Thankfully, coconuts are quite abundant and easy to cultivate. There are no current environmental risks to inhibit the production of monolaurin


Processing: The extracted coconut oil is concentrated in the form of lauric acid and glycerin, then compounded for consumption
