Coconut’s Best Kept Secret: Monolaurin

Updated: Oct 19, 2019


Monolaurin is a powerful agent derived naturally from coconut, and is the best source of the fatty acid lauric acid. It can also be found in breast milk, and a few plants. However, coconuts are the best and most common way it is utilized.

Monolaurin from lauric acid is capable of inhibiting the growth of pathogens due to having strong antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. That is why it has been used to treat the flu, yeast infections, fevers, cold sores, and even the common cold for centuries.

Monolaurin is especially known for its antiviral properties. It has the amazing ability to break down and destroy the lipid layer of enveloped viruses where many prescription drugs fail. With the worldwide concern about antibiotic resistance, this may mean that monolaurin (lauric acid) could become a viable and natural treatment option. It can be taken as a preventative therapy, to treat new or existing conditions, or for general health.

Monolaurin is truly an amazing product of nature, and has so many incredible health benefits.
