WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COCONUT OIL, LAURIC ACID, AND LAURICIDINĀ®?

Coconut oil is the edible oil harvested from the meat of mature coconuts (Cocos nucifera). 40-60% of coconut oil is comprised of the 12-carbon medium chain saturated fatty acid known as lauric acid, a triglyceride. LauricidinĀ® is made by combining lauric acid from coconut oil with a plant-based glycerol (non-soy) creating a pure ester known as monolaurin, a monoglyceride.

CAN I TAKE LAURICIDINĀ® WITH PROBIOTICS?

Yes, Lauricidin can be taken safely with probiotics. Lauricidin does not destroy friendly bacteria you can take basically any vitamin or supplement for your gut.Ā 

CAN I TAKE LAURICIDINĀ® IF I HAVE A COCONUT ALLERGY?

Yes, LauricidinĀ® is the purified lipid extract from coconut oil and can be safely consumed by individuals with a coconut allergy.


ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

LauricidinĀ® is nontoxic. If starting levels are too high, a patient may experience short-term (a few days to a few weeks) exacerbation of mild symptoms such as headache, joint and muscle pain, body aches, acne, itchy skin, mild rashes, skin flushing, sore throat, general malaise, sweating, chills, nausea, or other symptoms. This mild and temporary response may be likened to what is known as a Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction. These symptoms are normal ā€“ and even healthy.
