Over the coming weeks I will be sending out updates to keep all my patients up to date on how to keep you and your family safe with a functional medicine perspective.

Monolaurin Anti-Viral Benefits

The mechanism of anti-viral action is a disruption of the viral envelope or lipid capsule that surrounds the virus. Viruses use this envelope to help them “roll” into cells – which is important for replicating and “activating” the virus.

Monolaurin has been demonstrated to disintegrate this lipid envelope naturally. No matter the strain of the virus – if it has a viral envelope – it is vulnerable to the unique action of monolaurin.

Epstein-Barr VirusCytomegalovirusHerpes zoster (Shingles / Chicken pox)Human Herpes Virus-6, & others. Other viruses are also enveloped – such as the influenza or flu virus – which makes monolaurin a perfect supplement for seasonal immune support. 

There was also a small clinical trial published with HIV – another enveloped virus – that demonstrated lower viral levels and improved T-cell counts in those treated.
