Monolaurin is a compound derived from glycerin and lauric acid which is abundant in coconut fat, and is believed to be responsible for some of the health benefits of coconut products. While Monolaurin itself is not found in coconuts, the body converts some of the lauric acid ingested into small amounts of Monolaurin.
Monolaurin has been heavily researched for its ability to support immune system health and to support heathy digestion and is commonly supplemented for this purpose. It is not known how many coconuts need to be consumed to provide a beneficial dose, so Monolaurin remains popular as a dietary supplement.
We recommend taking a dosage of 1000 – 3000 mg (2 – 6 capsules) per day, but it is best to start at 1000 mg before working your way up to 3000 mg if needed. This dosage can be repeated 2-3 times per day if desired, but we don’t recommend exceeding 9000 mg per day.
Monolaurin is fat soluble and is best taken during or after a meal for best absorption.
Monolaurin Side Effects
Monolaurin is very well tolerated and presents no side effects in people who are not allergic to coconuts and coconut products. If you are allergic to coconuts you should avoid Monolaurin. Monolaurin is not recommended to be taken while pregnant or breastfeeding mainly due to a lack of research in pregnant women and nursing mothers.
