Each 1/4 tsp (750 mg) of these easy-to-take pellets delivers a 90% pure distillate of coconut oil (hint: all the benefits of coconut oil - but you don't have to take a cupful or two to reap the rewards).
Coconut oil is a mixture of long and medium chain fatty acids. The magic is in the medium chains, which possess antimicrobial properties. Yes, Monolaurin is present in the highest concentration; but each monoglyceride has a specific health advantage.
In studies Monolaurin has demonstrated the most ability to fight against viruses, bacteria parasites and fungi. However, there are some instances where one or another of the medium chain monoglycerides may work better against specific organisms. In some instances it is the only one to work against a specific organism.
Coconut oil (and Ultra Monolaurin) is a natural combination of 'medium chain fatty acids'. Because they work synergistically you can anticipate a more effective result .
STUDIES:Monocaprin - was effective against C. jejuni
Monocaprylin - with caprylic acid - was effective against a variety of bacterial pathogens, including Campylobacterjejuni (C. jejuni)
Monomarystin - was most active against chlamydia (compared with the other monoglycerides)
Monocaprylin (Caprylic acid) has been demonstrated (and used for over 50 years) to inhibit the growth of candida albicans.
Antibacterial study of the medium chain fatty acids and their 1-monoglycerides: individual effects and synergistic relationships
"The protozoan parasite Giardia lamblia is killed by monoglycerides from hydrolyzed human milk. "
