for me coconut oil is much stronger(neuro herxing a ton from it) than monolaurin - i think it hits parasites(maybe even brain parasites) better than monolaurin alone(which has a structural similarity with miltefosine - an anti parasitic drug)
and coconut oil is a food(calories) while monolaurin is a medicine - so another plus for CO
some research on monolaurin:
there was also a study somewhere that coconut oil modulates immune system in the context of bacterial infection, so our herxes from it(and probably monolaurin too) could be a result of it.
here it is: https://www.cell.com/immunity/abstract/S1074-7613(15)00392-1
