I recently went to a naturopath who prescribed monolaurin. I researched monolaurin, kmowing it is the same stuff as what's in cocounut oil,wondering why not just take coconut oil. I found a site that sells a supplement by Dr Kabara and the site claims that the info on the internet on coconut oil is misleading because it doesn't stay in a monoglyceride form long enough in the body to be effective as an antiviral, antibacterial etc. I know this is a rather technical question but I am just trying to find out the truth. I have been taking VCO for a few weeks now and I would like to have faith that it indeed is an antibacterial, antiviral etc.
