This is effective against candida but as a stanf alone lhme treatment? Idk what else are you taking llj? Try some andrographis or bee venom if you wanna kill some microbes
I disagree, Monolaurin has a greater killing ability than Bee venom, is safer too.
"The MBC determination method is a very rigorous requirement even for many antibiotics. However, compounds such as hydroxytyrosol, cis-2-decenoic acid, baicalein and monolaurin were able to induce dead of latent rounded forms at LD50 values between 300 and 500 μg ml−1, and at 20 μg ml−1 for kelp (iodine). Moreover, their bactericidal potential towards rounded forms was observed at the same concentrations for both tested species of Borrelia. Doxycycline was used as positive control in this experiment. This antibiotic could not eliminate rounded forms in 90–99% or achieve LD50 level, even at the maximum tested concentration of 500 μg ml−1. These values stay in agreement with those reported by Sapi, et al. (Sapi et al. 2011)."
"he results show that five compounds such as baicalein (≥500 μg ml−1), luteolin (≥200 μg ml−1), monolaurin (≥500 μg ml−1), cis-2-decenoic acid (≥500 μg ml−1) and kelp (iodine) (≥20 μg ml−1), could reduce biofilm-like colonies formed by B. burgdorferi (B31 strain). Only two compounds, baicalein (≥500 μg ml−1) and monolaurin, (≥500 μg ml−1), were effective against biofilm formed by B. garinii (CIP103362 strain). Baicalein and monolaurin reduced B. burgdorferi biofilm-like colonies by approx. 30–60% and B. garinii by approx. 40–60%."
IN VITRO but this is the best we got and this study alone proves that herbal remedies in VITRO have better killing ability against Borrelia than synthetic antibiotics. That doesn't mean we shouldn't take the conventional approach. For comparison, baicalein and monolaurin have shown to be effective against all morphological forms of both tested Borrelia
Monolaurin showed significant reduction in biofilm of B. garinii, although at 1·5–2 times higher concentrations than those needed to induce bactericidal effect.
monolaurin, has been shown to inhibit growth and induce biofilm dispersion of a broad spectrum of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria at concentrations of 30–500 μg ml−1 (Schlievert et al. 1992) without cytotoxic effects on human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) when used up to 100 μg ml−1 over a 2-week period.
Interestingly, doxycycline was effective against the spirochete form of both tested Borrelia sp. and displayed moderate effect against biofilm, but not against dormant rounded forms.
