Lauricidin® is pure sn-1 monolaurin (glycerol monolaurate) derived from coconut oil
Lauricidin® is a concentrated mini-pellet (~30 mg) of sn1
(3)-monolaurin. Monolaurin as a class of direct food additives is
consider GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) by the USA FDA. Lauricidin®
is nontoxic and does not interact with most drugs or supplements.
Because Lauricidin® is bioactive the exact amount that you need for optimal health depends on your diet and genetic make up.
This new field of nutrigenomics (interaction between nutrition and the
human genome) will better help us understand how nutrients are able to
prevent and even treat disease through targeted nutrition.
Children (3-10 year olds): Do not chew pellets. To be
taken with meals. The mini-pellets can be placed in the mouth and
swallowed with water or juice. Do not take with hot liquids. For
difficult situations try placing the pellets (whole or powdered) into
applesauce, pudding, peanut butter, etc. For very young children it is
best to start with 1-3 pellets/day for a several days before gradually
increasing the dose.The usual initial level of Lauricidin® is increased
gradually to twice/thrice daily for a week or two. The level can be
further increased thereafter.
The maintenance level will depend on effects seen and adjusted accordingly. Contact Dr. Kabara with any questions/comments
Adults: Take with or after meals. The mini-pellets can
be placed in the mouth and swallowed with water or juice. Do not take
with hot liquids. Do not chew or take as a powder. The recommended
initial level of Lauricidin® is ~0.75 gram (1/4 blue scoop) or less two
or three times daily for a week before increasing the amount.
The level can be then increased to 1.5 grams (1/2 blue scoop) one, two or three times daily thereafter.
A maintenance level can be 3.0 grams (one blue scoop) two or three times
a day necessary for optimum health effects. In stubborn cases this may
be increased. The length of time for taking the supplement is an
individual response. Supplements need to be taken on a continuing basis
for better health--much like vitamins.
Lauricidin® is a nontoxic nutritional lipid. Lauricidin® may, however, increase the die off of microorganisms and result in a "Herxheimer Reaction,"
a kind of flu, acne, allergic symptom, etc. You need to cut back on the
level or even stop for a few days before taking lower levels and then
going higher. Present information on Lauricidin® suggests that it does
not interfere with drug metabolism or other supplements. If taken
together, Lauricidin® may increase their absorption.
