What is Monolaurin?
Monolaurin, derived naturally from coconut or palm, is a source of the medium chain fatty
acid lauric acid. Monolaurin has been widely researched for its antiviral, antibacterial, and
antimicrobial properties, as it can break down and destroy the lipid layer of enveloped
viruses where many pharmaceuticals fail. Monolaurin occurs naturally in mother's breast
milk and in certain plants (ie: coconut), and is classified by the FDA as "generally regarded
as safe" (GRAS). Monolaurin can be taken as a preventative therapy, to treat a new or
existing condition, or for general health.
Benefits of Monolaurin
Immune System Health
The human body will naturally convert coconut oil to monolaurin. Beth Beisel, a registered
dietitian, claims in an article for NourishedMagazine.com that ingesting coconut oil daily
helps to build up the immune system and fight infection from attacking agents.
In Ms. Carpo's 2007 study in the "Journal of Drugs in Dermatology" regarding the use of
monolaurin to fight skin infections, the researchers inserted GML into a test tube culture
of skin infections from pediatric patients. This study concluded that Staphylococcus
aureus, Streptococcus spp. and other bacteria were sensitive to the agent.
Toxic Shock Syndrome
Monolaurin helps prevent bacterial infection that may lead to toxic shock syndrome in
women. Toxic shock syndrome is a life-threatening complication of tampon usage
Monolaurin for Aging

improves antioxidant levels and can slow aging by reducing stress on the liver and by
