How much Monolaurin to take?
As we have said, Monlaurin is at its best with the flu as a preventative! After catching the flu, the virus has already multiplied by the millions (before you noticed it), so you are playing catch-up. Given this, we have seen the best results to vary the amount you take ahead of time! We use the pellet form (3,000 mg. a scoop/tsp.). This means we might only take it 2-3 times a week during the summer. Come flu season, we are definitely taking a scoop a day. If we are being possibly exposed to the flu (job, traveling, it 'going around', kids at school, etc.), we are taking 2 scoops a day. People on any of our protocols (taking 2-3 scoops a day) never catch the flu (by feedback)!
