Kills Influenza (Flu) Virus,
Our 3-Step Answer for the Flu Actually Works!
Step 1: Ultimate Monolaurin to fight flu viruses. (Essential)
Step 2: Our Foundation for overall body function. (optional)
Step 3: Specific Nutrients to help fight the flu. (optional)
Step 1: Ultimate Monolaurin
Nature does have an answer! (Hundreds of clinical studies can’t be wrong.)
Actually, there is only one essential step in preventing the flu (and it does not involve a flu shot). Monolaurin has an amazing ability to kill all pathogen (bad) bacteria and lipid membrane viruses – which includes the flu viruses – and is documented by hundreds of studies! There is an abundance of information about monolaurin in our “A-Z Index”.
Monolaurin is in its highest percentage in nature in mother’s milk. It is there to protect an infant until its immune system can get up and going. We have simply made it in concentrated form – so it also provides a tremendous defense against the flu!
How Does Monolaurin Do It?
All flu strains have lipid fats in their outer membrane (skin). This is by design so the virus can easily penetrate where they are not wanted. Monolaurin happens to be a similar size molecule so it easily absorbs into the virus membrane. The monolaurin quickly interrupts the reproductive cycle and, when enough monolaurin absorbs in, weakens the membrane to where it ruptures and the virus dies.
The blood then takes the debris to the liver where it is eliminated from the body. Your body is much happier and it’s a good deal for everyone – except for the virus!
Exotic Strains of Flu
So, how effective is monolaurin against different strains of flu – or an exotic flu like swine, bird or the dreaded Ebola flu?
Well, monolaurin’s effectiveness against the flu depends on how much lipid fat is in the membrane of the particular flu virus strain going around. Surprisingly, it was very effective against the swine flu because the swine flu had abundant lipid fats. The Ebola flu is reported to have abundant lipid fats – but let’s hope we never have to find out!
For most common strains, monolaurin is 90 – 100% effective – if you follow the KEY below! Even on low lipid fat strains, it greatly reduces the effects and duration of the flu.
The KEY to Effectiveness!
Monolaurin is much better as a preventative rather than AFTER catching the flu!
Let’s think this through. When you are first exposed to the virus, there are relatively few of them. If monolaurin is already in your bloodstream, the virus comes into contact with it pretty quickly and the monolaurin can easily kill it.
If you wait until you feel some symptoms of the flu, it has already multiplied into millions of virus. Now you are playing catch-up and it is much harder to kill all the virus.
So, the key to maximizing monolaurin’s abilities is to make sure it is in your blood before exposure to the flu. Then, it is much easier for the monolaurin to kill the virus before it can multiply and build up into a full-fledged flu!
As a result, many people take a scoop (teaspoon) a day of the little pellets. Then the monolaurin is already in the bloodstream if a flu virus appears. Many people adjust the amount they take to the situation they are in. They might use a little less in the summer, a scoop a day come flu season. They might increase to 2 scoops a day if they have heavy exposure (grandkids visiting from an infected school, traveling, etc.).
Fortunately, our Ultimate Monolaurin is not only the purest available, it is also the least expensive per serving (about 186 servings in a 21 oz. container)! As a side benefit, monolaurin will also fight any other bacterial infections as well – without harming beneficial bacteria since they have different membranes. Studies show no side effects, drug interactions or allergies so it is a very attractive flu defense.
Our Recommendation is to Take at Least:
• If heavily exposed: 2 scoops a day, 1 with breakfast, 1 with dinner.
• At first hint of getting sick: 3 scoops a day, spread out.

“Thanks so much for your prompt response Allen. We have been using Mono for many years, found out about it in an older book- relatively so- “The Doctors Book of Home Remedies” – Rodale Press 1990 – just a few sentences in the Colds section. Thanks again, I was just delighted to find your product – seems so much better than caps!!!” Sharon, MN

Step 2: Our Foundation (optional multi-nutrient)
Many naturalistic doctors recommend good nutritional body support. In fact, we have already included many of their recommended nutrients in our Ultimate Foundation. This is a complete multi-vitamin / mineral / nutrient / herb supplement that forms the ‘foundation’ of giving the body the nutrients it needs to function properly. This helps relieve the body’s stress and energy loss from being attacked by disease. Now, the body can better add its own defenses to the battle.

Step 3: Other Helpful Nutrients (optional nutrients)
Many of the nutrients here are in our Foundation blend above. Additional supplementation of these nutrients is not essential, however, there is significant support for them. We have found that, if monolaurin is taken in advance, these become less important.
Our Foundation gives more vitamin D-3 than most multi-vitamins for general maintenance. However, during flu season or when not getting much sun (winter, northern low sun exposure, etc.), add an extra 2,000 – 3,000 IU of D-3. This may be the single biggest reason some people catch more colds and keep them longer than others. Exciting new research has come from noticing that the amount of colds and flu people get is directly related to the amount of sunlight they receive. Vitamin D-3 appears to be a huge support of body immunity!
Skin Defense Spray (If being exposed to the flu, but no symptoms yet):
The nose is the #1 way of the flu virus entering the body. Simply put a spray in your hand and use a Q tip to coat the nostrils 2-3 times a day is a first line of defense.
Zinc throat lozenges
This is a good, inexpensive way to protect the #2 virus access, “hands to the mouth, throat”. Only use zinc lozenges 1-2 times a day. (Zinc can be overdone – I prefer lower zinc amount lozenges, 5-10 mg, so I can take them 3x a day). (If you take them more than 2 weeks, you may want to add 2 mg daily of copper because zinc decreases the body’s copper stores.)
Our Foundation has a lot of the vitamin C family. However, in high exposure times, add 500 mg daily in addition to your multi-vitamin C (our recommended type is in “Additional Supplements”.) Use time-release C to spread the absorption rate, usage and to ease stomach acidity. Make sure they have bio-flavonoids in them.
Again, our Foundation has selenium. However, if you use another multi-vitamin, add selenium to total at least 175 mg. Deficiencies of selenium are common. Selenium boosts the production of glutathione peroxidase that helps stops flu viruses from making you sick. Places that are deficient in selenium (such as China) slow outbreaks of viral diseases simply by giving selenium to the population.
