Function; Why it is Recommended

Monolaurin works directly on the envelope of the virus.  By disrupting the lipid bilayer of the virus, Monolaurin inactivates the virus by preventing attachment (absorption) to susceptible host cell walls.  This prevents the uncoating of viruses needed for replication and infection.

Monolaurin is effective against yeast and fungi, staphylococcus aureus (staph) and streptococcus agalactiae (strep), chlamydia trachomatis, candida albicans, giardia lamblia, ringworm, H.  pylori and gonorrhea.

In studies performed at the Respiratory Virology Branch, Centers for Disease Control, Monolaurin was shown to remove all measurable infectivity against the following RNA and DNA viruses:


A therapeutic dose of monolaurin is generally 1800mg to 2400mg per day.


Monolaurin is non-toxic and listed in GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) as a food emulsifier.
