Lauricidin vs. Ultimate Monolaurin
Monolaurin is a supplemental extract derived from the lauric acid found naturally in palm and coconut oil that has been used for 20 years as a supplement.
The most widely known form of monolaurin is Lauricidin - made in the form of monolaurin pellets that are washed down with water just like you would swallow pills.
Ultimate Monolaurin is the same exact chemical form of Lauricidin - both are made up of 95-98% monolaurin at 3000mg per serving, and both are taken as "scoops" at 1 scoop 3x/day (1 scoop = 1 teaspoon).
Ultimate Monolaurin vs. Lauricidin
Both Ultimate Monolaurin and Lauricidin share the same properties:
SAME MONOLAURIN PURITY:
Both brands boast 95-98% pure monolaurin pellets, the remaining percentage contains some monocaprin and monocaprylin that share similar properties and work in synergy with monolaurin
SAME MONOLAURIN DOSAGE:
Both brands offer 3000mg per serving (1 teaspoon or "scoop"). Take the pellets like pills - swallow with cool water or juice, do not chew or take with hot liquid due to poor taste.
SAME MONOLAURIN PELLETS:
All monolaurin is made from mixed source of palm and coconut oil which are the highest natural sources of lauric acid. Lauric acid is a natural medium chain fat in these plants that is converted to monolaurin when combined with glycerol. Monolaurin pellets are the end product you are taking as a supplement. While companies may use different manufacturers - the end product specs are the same.
Ultimate Monolaurin is Formulated in USA | Lauricidin is Manufactured in Denmark.
