Discovery of Monolaurin

At the University of Detroit Department of Chemistry, Dr. Kabara and his undergraduate students began experimenting with the nutritional effects of fatty acids, particularly the 12-carbon chain fatty acid lauric acid, and its monoglyceride – known as Monolaurin. In Dr. Kabara’s own words: “Our studies eventually indicated that certain fatty acids and especially their monoglycerides (a fatty acid attached to glycerol) found in mother’s milk had extraordinary properties.”

With the findings of Dr. Kabara and his students, Med-Chem Laboratories, Inc. was born. Now over 50 years later, Lauricidin® is recommended worldwide by thousands of health professionals, retail consumers and researchers alike for its immune-promoting properties*. With the growing recognition of the health benefits of coconut oil, more and more people are recognizing the unique properties of its 95%+ pure monolaurin extract, Lauricidin®. Commercially, Lauricidin® is manufactured by joining one part lauric acid to one part glycerol to create pure monolaurin. Our lauric acid is derived from pure coconut oil.
