Monolaurin is one of the most popular nutrients to assist in combating various viruses. It is believed to work by interacting with the lipids and phospholipids that form the envelope of the virus, causing it to weaken or disintegrate. Research suggests that monolaurin exerts some degree of immune support for the following viruses:• Human immunodeficiency virus HIV-1, HIV+• Measles virus• Herpes simplex virus-1• Herpes simplex virus-2• Herpes viridae (all)• Human lymphotropic viruses (type 1)• Vesicular stomatitis virus• Visna virus• Cytomegalovirus• Epstein-Barr virus• Influenza virus• Pneumonovirus• Sarcoma virus• Syncytial virus
One study showed that while monolaurin was effective against Cytomegalovirus it was not effective against rhinoviruses, the cause of the common cold. There are many anecdotal reports of monolaurin helping combat the flu.
Many of the types of viruses monolaurin helps are those that can be chronic low grade infections that deplete energy on a regular basis and flare up when you are stressed or down. If you have ever had a bad bug and never really got your energy back then monolaurin may help your immune system clean up the problem – even years later. Many find it useful for recurring mouth sores that are herpes-based problems.
