Monolaurin – Antiviral and Antimicrobial

Monolaurin is produced from lauric acid, a naturally occurring fatty acid. It is a broad spectrum formula which dissolves the lipid envelope coat of capsid viruses such as Coronavirus

Why Monolaurin is currently our most recommended product – backed by research and trusted through years of use at Healing Ways

Coronavirus is classified as an enveloped virus. These viruses have an outer layer of lipids that protect the viral particle. Monolaurin has been shown in CDC and other studies to disintegrate this lipid envelope. In the CDC study, Monolaurin was found to be 99.9% effective at ‘killing’ the fourteen different enveloped viruses that were tested. The viruses tested during this study include the following: Cytomegalovirus, Rubeola, Newcastle’s, Herpes Simplex 1, Herpes Simplex 2, Influenza, Bronchitis, Epstein-Barr, Mumps, Respiratory Syncytial, Coronavirus, and others.

Lauric acid, the main ingredient in Monolaurin, is a naturally occurring fatty acid that can be found in both human and food sources such as adipose tissue, amniotic fluid, breast milk, cow’s milk, palm kernels, and coconut oil. The Monolaurin capsules we provide are created using coconut oil, so it is safe for everyone to take, even those who are vegan and gluten-free.

Due to the specific formula of Monolaurin as an ester(combination) of lauric acid and glycerol, it is more effective than other forms of pure, uncombined lauric acid at disrupting the lipid membrane of enveloped viruses, keeping them from binding to host cells, infecting them, replicating, and causing disease.

Monolaurin is a non-toxic compound which is safe for continued use over sustained periods of time. This supplement can be taken either with or without food and has been recorded to have no negative side effects in the majority of users. A very rare side effect is mild gastrointestinal irritability. There is no recorded negative effect on liver enzymes, red blood cell count, platelet or hemoglobin levels. Monolaurin specifically targets the foreign viruses and does not interfere with human host cells.

For some individuals who have been infected with an enveloped virus such as Coronavirus, a prolonged maintenance dose may be necessary to keep symptoms from resurfacing. Whether for prevention or reduction of symptoms, please allow us to guide you on the best dosage for your individual health needs.
