Lauric acid was first discovered as the main
antiviral and antibacterial substance in human breast milk. It is
a medium chain, saturated fatty acid that is also found in coconut
products. Monolaurin is the glycerol ester of lauric acid and is
more biologically active than lauric acid. Monolaurin has been
shown to be active against influenza virus, pneumovirus,
paramyxovirus (Newcastle), morbillivirus (rubeola), coronavirus
(avian infectious, bronchitis virus), herpes simplex I & II, CMV,
EBV, and HIV. Monolaurin disrupts the lipid bilayer of the virus
preventing attachment to susceptible host cells. It binds to the
lipid-protein envelope of the virus and inactivates the virus.
Monolaurin inhibits the replication of viruses by interrupting the
binding of virus to host cells and prevents uncoating of viruses
necessary for replication and infection. Monolaurin can remove all
measurable infectivity by directly disintegrating the viral
envelope. Monolaurin binding to the viral envelope makes a virus
more susceptible to host defenses.
Monolaurin is effective against yeast and fungi, staphylococcus
aureus and streptococcus agalactiae, chlamydia trachomatis,
candida albicans, giardia lamblia, ringworm, H. pylori and
gonorrhea. Monolaurin is non-toxic and listed in GRAS (Generally
Recognized as Safe) as a food emulsifier. A therapeutic dose of
monolaurin is generally 1800 mg to 2400 mg per day.
My husband had an ulcer in his
eye that specialist diagnosed as a herpes ulcer. He was in
terrible pain and we went from doctor to doctor to doctor.
Nothing helped. I've tried stacks of things, you can't believe
how much I've spent on them. After trying monolaurin almost
immediately it started helping.
Dear Smart Nutrition,
Just want you to know that after
taking monolaurin for one year my husband's herpes outbreaks
stopped. After two years mine too have stopped. I had heavy metals
in my body which needed to be cleared out before the treatment
worked for me.
We each took six capsules daily. I
took two before each meal, and he took three in the morning and
three at night.
Now even chocolate, which used to
give me outbreaks, no longer does.
I'm writing in hope of spreading
the word about this remarkable product.
