Medical research has shown that Virgin Coconut Oil is a valuable source of lauric acid which is known for having anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties helping immune system respond in a beneficial manner. Lauric Acid is a medium chain fatty acid transformed into monolaurin as an antiviral, antibacterial and antiprotozoal monoglyceride agent by human or animal against lipid-coated viruses and bacteria. Monolaurin inactivates and disintegrates the lipid (fats) covering the pathogenic microorganisms rendering them vulnerable to
