Clinical Nutrition for Viral Infections! Monolaurin is found in coconut and can be taken as an antiviral supplement. There is excellent research to support its use in fighting off viral infections. and its safe to take long-term. It can be found in most health food stores or call my office at 732-308-0099 if you want to order.
Monolaurin is known to inactivate lipid-coated viruses by binding to the lipid-protein envelope of the virus, thereby preventing it from attaching and entering host cells, making infection and replication impossible. Other studies show that Monolaurin disintegrates the protective viral envelope, killing the virus. Monolaurin has been studied to inactivate many pathogens including Herpes simplex virus and Chlamydia trachomatis.
