Product Details

Details

Monolaurin-Avail™ is an encapsulated formula of monolaurin (glycerol monolaurate), a form of lauric acid, which is the predominant fatty acid in coconut and palm kernel oils and is also present in human breast milk (as 3.5-6.6 percent of total calories). This product is designed to offer potent support for immune health without adverse effects on beneficial intestinal flora. It contains vitamin C for added immune benefit, and sunflower lecithin to enhance absorption of the monolaurin.

This product is made with non-GMO ingredients. Monolaurin (glycerol monolaurate) is a potent virucidal and bactericidal agent with efficacy across an impressive array of pathogenic organisms and viruses. Unlike conventional antibiotics, it has not been shown to result in antibacterial resistance, nor to have adverse effects on beneficial intestinal flora. As such, in addition to acute use it may also be used as a potential preventive measure during cold and flu season, or taken on an ongoing basis by those susceptible to recurrent infection and illness.*

Mechanism and Targets of Action
Monolaurin is believed to inactivate lipid-coated viruses by binding to the lipid-protein viral envelope, thereby preventing it from attaching to and entering host cells.* Additionally, as a lipid-based surfactant, monolaurin has been shown to be effective against microbial biofilms.* Biofilm-associated bacteria are typically less susceptible to antibiotic therapy than are free-living bacteria, possibly owing to the inability of some antibiotics to fully penetrate the biofilm and interact directly with bacteria.

Monolaurin has been shown to inactivate many pathogens, including herpes simplex virus and chlamydia trachomatis. It is also effective against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, as well as yeast, fungi and protozoa, including candida albicans, several species of ringworm, and the giardia parasite.

In vivo and in vitro data support the efficacy of monolaurin for inhibiting proliferation of the following lipid-coated bacteria and viruses*

Listeria monocytogenes
Helicobacter pylori (gram-negative)
Hemophilus influenzae (gram-negative)
Staphylococcus aureus
Streptococcus agalactiae
Enterococcus faecalis
Groups A, B, F, and G streptococci
Gram-positive organisms
