The History of Monolaurin
Early South Sea Island explorers often wondered why the island natives seemed to stay healthier than the American Indians did when Caucasian people mixed with them. In fact, the island natives didn’t seem to catch much of anything. That is, until some of the natives started eating a ‘western’ diet. Then their health would begin to suffer - while those on native diets stayed healthy!
After much research, scientists determined the key to their diet was the coconut. Much later, Michigan State University researchers discovered what happened when we eat coconut. Our body adds glycerol to the lauric acid in coconut and converts about 3% of it into a nutrient called monolaurin. Since monolaurin is in its highest concentration in nature in mother's milk, they suspected monolaurin might be the magic bullet responsible.
Today, we have hundreds of clinical studies on monolaurin that present substantial efficacy and exciting results. At Inspired Nutrition, we have taken those results one step further by increasing the ratio that lauric acid is converted into monolaurin from 3% to 95%.
What Makes Our Monolaurin the "Ultimate"?
Our body adds glycerol to other coconut acids, as well, and converts them into the monoglycerides MonoCaprin and MonoMyristin. Through the addition of our exclusive Monolaurin Plus™, we offer a fuller spectrum of the coconut monoglycerides than other forms of monolaurin currently in the market.
|Plus up to:||2%||MonoMyristin|
Our Ultimate Monolaurin® is the fullest blend of these monoglycerides available.
Additionally, we spent two years of research to design our proprietary monolaurin liquid products. We were the first to emulsify monolaurin to create high quality topical blends with the addition of powerful nutrients such as colloidal silver, phospholipids, plant essential oils and more.

Monolaurin tastes quite bitter so most people prefer to take their daily amount with other capsules or tabs and wash them down with any liquid. Simple tip - Tilting the head forward helps swallowing, tilting head back makes swallowing more difficult.
Serving Suggestions for Adults:
Maintenance: 1 scoop a day.
Flu season: 1 scoop, 2 times a day.
A specific protocol:
- Under 130 pounds: 1 scoop, 2 times daily.
- Over 130 pounds: 1 scoop, 3 times daily.
Children: Adjust to the child’s weight vs. an adult. For example, an 80 lb. child is about 1/2 the average weight of an adult, so 1/2 the dosage.
Pets: Also adjust based on a human adult weight. A 20 lb. pet is about 1/8 of an adult person, so 1/8 the dosage. There are about 80 pellets in a scoop (tsp.). Putting it into soft pet foods will help them eat the pellets.
Important Information: To help avoid a Herxheimer Reaction, consider gradually building up to a full amount over the course of 7 to 10 days.
Herxheimer Reaction: A “herx” reaction can occur when pathogen bacteria "die off" faster than the body can eliminate them. This can cause some mild chills, flu or allergic type symptoms. If this happens, simply stop taking the Monolaurin a day or two to give your body a little extra time to remove the dead pathogens. Resume at a lower dosage and gradually increase, as your body can handle it, to full dosage.
