Lauricidin (monolaurin) is the trade name owned by Med-Chem Labs, Inc. for the original, pure monolaurin. Monolaurin as a natural lipid (fat) is found in mother`s milk, saw palmetto and as a minor lipid component in some coconut oil. In the laboratory, the pure form of this natural lipid has shown antibacterial, antifungal/yeast and antiviral properties. Through advanced technology, this natural substance is now available in a pearlized pure form rather than capsules. Lauricidin contains NO fillers, additives, excipients, preservatives or allergens that may be found in monolaurin capsules. one of the most important fats found in mother`s milk and partially responsible for the milk`s antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties.
