I went on a round of antibiotics couple weeks right and it absolutely made me feel terrible I know how hard it is to replenish that good gut bacteria to get things back in order and I started thinking about self it I do all these research topics I do all these videos I have to know a way to get my gut bacteria back up to snuff quickly and I started thinking about like coconut oil there we go now you’re probably asking yourself how the heck does coconut oil work when it comes to replenishing gut bacteria well I’m going to get to that in a minute I want to explain a couple of things before I explain how coconut oil and lauric acid one of the components of coconut oil can literally be something that can make you feel quite a bit better and get the most out of your day so lauric acid is a fatty acid chains a straight chain fatty acid and 50% of coconut oil is lauric acid and in fact a lot of other saturated fats contain lauric acid but coconut oil has the highest quantity of lauric acid up any of those saturated fats and what ends up happening is when you consume that lauric acid your body converts it into something called mono Lauren now that mono Lauren has insane antifungal antimicrobial antiviral antibacterial properties now I’m going to talk about how exactly it works and I’m going to touch on some of the research so I can back this stuff up with what I’m telling you the first one I want to look at is related directly to the antibiotics now I’m not a doctor I’m not telling you to go eat a bunch of coconut oil in lieu of that arrhythmia sand that they actually prescribe you not telling you that at all but I’m telling you there are some serious serious benefits one study took 30 different chains 30 different fatty acid chains and they studied their ability to fight bacteria well what was found was that mono Lauren basically derived from lauric acid was the clear winner of all those fatty acid chains nine of which were saturated fats so clearly showing that of all the fats out there mono Lauren has significant antibacterial properties even going so far as saying that lauric acid and mono Lauren has the ability to kill Staphylococcus different strains of staph now I don’t know how much reading you do but staph is one of the leading killers in hospitals and we get infections things like that not saying that you can rub a little bit of coconut oil on anything fix it but still as a preventive measure something you may want to take into your life okay now the other one we want to look at is using coconut oil on your skin okay code nut oil again has those heavy antimicrobial properties coming from that lauric acid when you put it on your skin it’s been shown in studies that it actually can kill off something called P acnes now that P agnus is one of the bacterial strains that causes cystic acne again it can’t be a replacement for accutane it can’t be a replacement for a prescription but it’s shown to be 15 times more powerful than benzoyl peroxide that’s the kind of acid that you get out of a watch that you would normally put on your face to kind of dry it out kill off some of the acne yes 15 times more powerful again whether you have acne or not it just shows the ability for these healthy fats to fight that bad bacteria within our bodies I don’t want to dive into a lot of science with mono Lauren right now because to be honest it’s just the tip of the iceberg in terms of where the research has gone with it but was really interesting is finding out why it is concluded that mono Lauren seems to inhibit the growth of bad bacteria or gram positive bacteria a lot of it has to do with a signal transduction interruption the cell in human terms that basically means that it interrupts the signal from the outside of the cell to the inside of the cell it disrupts that so if you have brand positive bacteria that’s proliferating and growing and suddenly you just rough that communication between the outside and the inside it makes it hard for it to reproduce because it doesn’t really know what’s surrounding it it’s disrupted that transduction that is how it works from an antibacterial standpoint now I hope that you’re still with me because now I’m going to get to the good stuff all right the Journal of medicinal food found that lauric acid and mono Lauren was extremely effective at killing off multiple strains of fungal Candida Candida is a huge huge issue that a lot of us are suffering with it’s an overabundance of the bad bacteria coming up into the upper GI making it so we feel bloated making it so we feel nauseous making it so we get acid reflux okay this is showing some serious promising signs there when we have an overabundance of the bad bacteria in our gut it can dictate how we feel that enteric brain the ability of our gut to communicate with our brain is so intense is now being linked to depression to anxiety to other mood disorders if we can get a grasp on fighting off the gram-positive bacteria that shouldn’t be there we can make leaps and bounds in many different aspects of science research and medicine now in addition to helping out the good bacteria within your gut just an extra bonus there’s been some recent studies testing mono lauren and its effect on viruses one specific test testing HIV patients and it actually lowered the viral count of HIV it’s not a cure it’s nothing like that but it shows the potency of mono Lauren to be able to fight viruses as well so next time you get a cold or a flu it may not be a bad idea to have a couple tablespoons of coconut oil just to try to get your system back and balance one of the things I don’t do in my videos a lot is give solid examples and I want to make sure that I did give some examples because I think it’s important that you know how to put this into place I don’t expect you just eat a tablespoon of coconut oil all the time but I do think that you should try experimenting with putting it on your skin you see a lot of times we absorb things through our skin even more so than we do through our digestive systems so try rubbing just maybe 1/4 tablespoon or so on your face and then washing it off in the morning maybe leave it on for just a minute or two but additionally start doing your cooking with coconut oil I know I tell this all the time but really give it a shot if you’re cooking eggs cook them in some coconut oil if you’re cooking chicken cooking some coconut oil if you’re using a salad dressing melt it down and use that coconut oil because now it is being shown that actual serum lipid levels are decreased dramatically when you incorporate the saturated fats from coconut oil compared to other saturated fats and even compared to other polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats we’re talking about the viscous oils the oils that are actually more liquidy so lo and behold a saturated fat is actually improving serum lipid levels and I guess I can back that up with the fact there are some countries that actually consume about 60% of their overall calories from coconut talking about coconut cream we’re talking about coconut oil we’re talking about all kinds of different coconut butters coconut as a means of cooking coconut as a means of just eating the fruit itself and guess what they have some of the lowest instances of heart disease and disease in general in the entire planet so let this be a lesson to incorporate coconut oil to get those antimicrobial properties but more importantly if you’re trying to regulate your gut bacteria to increase your nutrient absorption and just a flat-out feel better and lift your mood I highly highly encourage you to try some coconut o
il as always keep it locked in here in my videos if you have any questions or anything that you want to hear about in a video let me know in the comments below I’ll be sure to take them all into consideration see you soon thanks for watching

Coconut Oil: How to Fight Colds & Flu- Thomas DeLauer
Cut through the internet health and business nonsense
Coconut oil is the food with the highest quantity of lauric acid, which is the precursor to monolauric acid (monolaurin). Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty acid found in foods containing saturated fats. Lauric acid and monolaurin are known for their antimicrobial properties. Effective against bacterial, viral and fungal infections, and have been shown to boost the immune system. While both are effective antimicrobial agents, monolaurin is known to be the most effective. The human body is capable of converting lauric acid to monolaurin. Monolaurin has been recognized to be an effective antimicrobial agent since 1966.
Bacteria: One study looked at 30 straight-chain fatty acids and their derivatives in regards to how capable they were at killing bacteria. Lauric acid was found to be the most effective of the 9 saturated fatty acids at killing gram-positive organisms. It has been shown in one study to kill Staphylococcus Aureus, an infection that can cause infections that lead to fatality.
Skin health: the antibacterial properties of lauric acid isn’t only good for our internal health, but for our skin’s health too. Inflammatory acne can be attributed to the overgrowth of gram-positive bacteria known as P. acnes. A 2009 study demonstrated that lauric acid was 15 times more effective at inhibiting growth of P. acnes than benzoyl peroxide, which is found in many acne medications. Monolaurin is known to kill bacteria through its interference in signal transduction in cell replication and through causing disintegration of the pathogen’s envelope. A 2007 study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food found that coconut oil was effective against many fungal strains of Candida. Unlike traditional antibiotics, monolaurin has been shown to not have a negative effect on gut bacteria.
Viruses: There is evidence of the benefits of monolaurin and lauric acid on HIV, herpes, measles and many other viruses. One study looked at HIV positive patients and gave them either monolaurin on coconut oil. 8 of the 14 patients showed reduced viral loads following 6 months of either monolaurin or coconut oil supplementation, with 3 showing significant reductions. 2 of these were in the coconut oil group and the other was in the monolaurin group. These findings are still being studied further but show a promising effect of healthy saturated fats against viruses. Many of the viruses that are inactivated by monolaurin are known to be opportunistic infections that may play a part in chronic fatigue syndrome and immune dysfunction syndrome.
Heart Health: Both trans-fats and saturated fats are used in food manufacturing to affect firmness and texture. One study compared two control groups to determine which was more beneficial to the serum lipid profile – one group consumed large quantities of lauric acid from coconut oil and the other group had partially hydrogenated soybean oil, which is high in trans-fatty acids. The group that consumed the coconut oil was found to have a more beneficial lipid profile following the diets. This shows that, in comparison to a high trans-fat diet, a diet high in lauric acid will have heart health benefits.
Traditional Societies: In some traditional societies, coconuts can make up 60% of the daily caloric intake. This would make the amount of lauric acid consumed very high! Their diets are high in saturated fats, yet low in sucrose and cholesterol. These societies are healthier than the US, and notably have low occurrence of vascular disease. There weren’t any health problems found due to the high quantity of coconut saturated fat consumption.
