Monolaurin – the internal infection fighter
Monolaurin is credited with helping the South Sea natives to be resistant to the diseases that killed so many of American Indians. Researchers already knew that monolaurin highest concentration in nature is in mother’s milk. (It helps defend an infant until its immune system gets up to speed.) It didn’t take researchers long to find monolaurin kills all pathogen (bad) bacteria it is exposed to – and 14 virus including the herpes virus – including epstein barr and shingles!
As Herpes is a “Lipid Enveloped Virus” These particular types of viruses that are lipid enveloped are killed by Monolaurin by desolving the lipid-layer of the virus.
A recent question that came up:
Are the many different corona viruses lipid enveloped viruses?
A Brief History
- The South Sea Islands
- How Does It Do It?
- What Makes Monolaurin the “Ultimate”?
- Where to Find the Best?
The story starts when exploring sailors discovered and started staying in the South Sea Islands. One of the things that puzzled them was that the natives didn’t seem to catch colds or infectious diseases very often. Even the infectious diseases that the explorers brought with them that devastated the Native American’s didn’t seem to have much effect on South Sea Islanders. It was only after many years that they noticed when the natives started eating the foods introduced by the explorers that they started getting these infectious diseases. The natives remaining on the native diet did not. After many years of observation, it became apparent that it was the large amount of coconut in their native diet that was responsible. No one knew why, but the coconut (especially coconut oil) protected the natives.
Fast forward to the 20th century when science was finally able to discover that the coconut was over 50% lauric acid – a rarity in the natural world! Thinking they had the answer, they tested lauric acid on different bacteria to see if it would kill them. The lauric acid did have an effect – but not near what scientists had expected. Eating coconut oil seemed to have much better results against
bacteria than the isolated tests would indicate.
It wasn’t until Dr. Kabara, a professor at both Universities of Detroit and Michigan State for over 20 years, started specializing in the effects of fatty acids and monoglycerides that the discoveries started unfolding. With specialties in pharmacology and biochemistry, Dr Kabara discovered the anti-microbial effects of fatty acids in mother’s milk – and it just so happens that lauric acid is one of those fatty acids!
What Dr. Kabara also discovered – and what is really important to us – is that the body converts some of the lauric acid in coconut oil into monoglycerides called monolaurin and monocaprin (as well as monocaprylin and monomyristin). Even more important, it was these monoglycerides that were the powerful germ fighters.
Monolaurin, Monocaprin (and their cousins) effectively kills many viruses, protozoa and ALL PATHOGEN (BAD) BACTERIA!
Monolaurin and its family, killed 100% of every bacterium it was tested on! It was even effective against many viruses including:
Herpes Simplex virus (HSV 1 and 2), Measles virus, HIV, Hepatitis C, and Cytomegalovirus (CMV)!
The way these monoglycerides accomplish this “seem-to-be miracle” is really interesting. All bacteria (and many viruses) have very flimsy envelopes (skins) that are made of lipid fat molecules. This is their design so the bacterium and virus can penetrate its targets and cells easily. As it so happens, monolaurin’s family has the same size lipid fat molecules so they absorb into the skin of the pathogen bacteria and viruses.
Unfortunately for the bacteria, the monolaurin family doesn’t have very good binding power. The already loosely held bacterial and viral skins can’t hold together and the cells burst open (dies). The blood cleans up the debris by taking the dead cells to the liver and they are eliminated. Your body is much happier! It’s a good deal for everyone – but not the bacteria and viruses! Even better, unlike antibiotics, the monolaurin family only kills bad bacteria – not friendly ones! (It is almost like nature plans these things.) It is pretty simple good bacteria does not have lipid fats in their membranes!
Part of our focus has been helping hospitals, clinics and people with the deadly resistant staph infection called MRSA (as well as Lyme disease and other protocols). In addition, clinical studies were showing that, while monolaurin was the workhorse, there are a few bacteria that monocaprin was actually better at defeating. As in offering the full bioflavonoid family with vitamin C and all 8 forms of Vitamin E, we wanted to offer a fuller spectrum of the coconut monoglycerides to MRSA sufferers.
Thus was born the Monolaurin formula we recommend – offering a minimum of 95% Monolaurin with added Monocaprin, and Monomyristin. If under a bacterial or viral attack, especially with something like MRSA, it makes sense to use the full benefits of coconut monoglycerides! This is not the time to experiment.
We recommend the pellet form as it is far more concentrated and less expensive. There are only a couple companies that make it. We are not allowed to name them here but the best one also helps out families and people on a budget and offers an economy sizes.
What Makes Our Monolaurin the "Ultimate"?
Actually, our body adds glycerol to other coconut acids, as well, and converts them into monoglycerides of MonoCaprin, MonoCaprylin and MonoMyristin. We wanted to combine them together as a family and offer a little fuller spectrum of the coconut monoglycerides than others. So, we have included our exclusive”MonoCaprin Plus”™ to provide:
Minimum: Plus up to:
Our Ultimate Monolaurin® is the fullest blend of these monoglycerides available.
Our Ultimate Monolaurin® is concentrated in easy to take pellets – without the wasted fillers and materials in capsules. One teaspoon of our monolaurin has 3,000 mg! Pellets Vs. Capsules
Compared to a 500 mg capsule:
1 tsp. of pellets equals 6 capsules
7 oz. container equals 6 average bottles of capsules
21 oz. container equals 18 average bottles of capsules
Enjoy online savings! We offer a 21 oz. economy size, which is 21 oz. for the price of two 7 oz. containers.
1 scoop (1 tsp., about 80 pellets) = 3,000 mg.
7 oz. = approx. 66
21 oz. = approx 200

Monolaurin is very bitter so most people put it in their hand – often with other capsules or tabs (the Monolaruin pellets actually makes it easier to swallow them). They toss the Monolaurin in their mouth and wash them down with any liquid (water, milk, etc.). Tilting the head forward helps swallowing, tilting head back makes swallowing more difficult.
Maintenance: 1 scoop a day.
Flu season: 1 scoop, 2 times a day.
A specific protocol:
- Under 130 pounds: 1 scoop, 2 times daily.
- Over 130 pounds: 1 scoop, 3 times daily.
Children:Adjust to the child’s weight vs. an adult (example: an 80 # child is about 1/2 of an adult, so 1/2 the dosage).
Pets: Also adjust to a human adult. A 20# pet is about 1/8 of an adult person, so 1/8 the dosage. There are about 80 pellets in a scoop (tsp.). Putting it into soft pet foods will help them eat the pellets.
Cautions: Gradually build up to a full dose (over about 7-10 days) to help avoid a Herxheimer reaction. Keep out of the reach of children. Chewing produces a very bitter taste.
Herxheimer Reaction: A “herx” reaction is common with antibiotics when they kill bacteria faster than the body can eliminate them. This can cause some mild chills, flu or allergic type symptoms. If this happens, simply stop taking the Monolaurin a day or two to give your body a little extra time to remove the dead pathogens. Resume at a little lower dosage and gradually increase, as your body can handle it, to full dosage.
