Monolaurin is a mono-ester formed from glycerol and lauric acid, thought to have antimicrobial and immune supporting properties. Lauric acid is a fatty acid, found in human breast milk and coconut oil.

Once it is consumed, the human body converts lauric acid to monolaurin. However, researchers are unsure of the conversion rates and the amount of coconut oil that would ultimately need to be consumed in order to achieve a therapeutic dose of monolaurin in the body, therefore supplements are a convenient alternative.
