Description
  • Top-quality source of monolaurin promoting immune system function
  • Preparation enriched with inosin for even more powerful effect
  • Inhibits virus multiplication in many ways
  • Improves efficiency of immune response
  • Antibacterial effect

Ecological Formulas Monolaurin is a top-quality supplement constituting a source of monolaurin, a lauric acid derivative with powerful immune system-enhancing properties. In order to promote its efficiency, the preparation also contains inosin.

Monolaurin – is a monoglyceride of lauric acid, which owes its popularity to the fact that it gives coconut oil health-promoting properties. Apart from coconut oil, monolaurin can also be found in breast milk. It is a powerful agent that promotes immune system function by its complex ability to stimulate the organism to fight pathogens. It constitutes a fantastic dietary supplement in autumn and in winter, when we are all exposed to many factors that contribute to the development of various infections.

Antiviral effect
Although lauric acid exhibits antiviral properties itself, monolaurin seems to be much more effective in that aspect. It owes the property to its unique holistic activity, directed at neutralising that type of pathogens.

Monolaurin has a degenerative effect on the lipid bilayers of viruses, that way leading to their destruction. By causing the breakdown of their external protective layer, monolaurin has a direct destructive effect on them. Its efficacy is so great that its activity is visible even in such advanced disease entities as a cytomegalovirus infection, measles, or vesicular stomatitis.

There are also reports suggesting that monolaurin is able to distort the process of viral maturation, that way inhibiting their development.

Antibacterial effect
Some tests also demonstrate monolaurin’s antibacterial activity. It is also able to distort signalling in bacteria, which probably (the mechanism of activity of the substance in that area has not been fully explained yet) gives it bacteriostatic or even microbicidal properties. A surprising activity of monolaurin is visible even in the case of strains resistant to traditionally used antibiotic therapies.

Safety of use
Despite its high efficacy, monolaurin is believed to be a relatively safe substance. Importantly, its microbicidal effect is directed only at pathogenic microorganisms. It does not have a negative effect on the intestinal bacterial flora, so it does not damage the microbiota, unlike standard antibiotics.

The safety of use of the preparation also stems from the highest diligence during its production, which guarantees the lack of the most popular allergens, including corn, cereals, or citrus.

Inosin – a purine nucleoside contained in the preparation in order to promote its efficacy when it comes to the fight against viruses. Inosin has a stimulant effect on lymphocytes, that way increasing their antiviral properties. Apart from that, it also stimulates macrophages and NK cells, supporting the efficacy of the immune system in a number of ways. Some sources also say that the compound is able to inhibit the synthesis of viral RNA, that way affecting directly viral metabolism and inhibiting their multiplication. Because of its high efficacy, inosin is a frequent ingredient of pharmaceutical blends used in the treatment of viral diseases.

To sum up, Ecological Formulas Monolaurin is a top-quality preparation constituting a source of two compounds with high antiviral activity: monolaurin and inosin. It is a supplement that can be used both for supporting immunity in times of increased susceptibility to infections and as an aid in the therapy of viral diseases. Importantly, it is also a safe product with a very low risk of potential adverse reactions.

Monolaurin

Information

Monolaurin is a form of fatty acid known as lauric acid. It occurs naturally in e.g. coconut milk and has been also detected in human milk. Monolaurin can be synthesised in the laboratory by esterification of glycerol with lauric acid.

Monolaurin shows strong antimicrobial properties and that is why it is most frequently used to aid the treatment of infectious diseases. It has been demonstrated to be capable of degrading, i.e. damaging, the lipid envelope of viruses. What is more, it can interfere with the maturation of viruses, thereby inhibiting their replication. Monolaurin is also effective against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. It even destroys strains which have become resistant to traditional antibiotics. Monolaurin also inactivates some pathogenic fungi, yeast and protozoans.

Dosage: No official guidelines.

The typical daily dosage varies from 0.75 to 3 g.

Inosine

Information

Inosine (purine nucleoside) is formed in the body during the degradation of adenosine involving the ADA, its ingredients are: hypoxanthine and ribose. Participates in energy conversion in the body and reduces the level of lactic acid in the cells and muscle tissue , providing increase of the exercise capacity and an extension of an effort time. Scientific research confirmed neuroprotective and anti-virus action of inosine. In the sports supplementation used in the disciplines of endurance and strength as a dietary supplement and support of the effort. Available in the form of mono-preparation supplements and complex multicomponent supplements (including creatine stacks, nitrogen boosters).
Dosage: 1-2g a day, mainly before and after training.
