Lauric acid is most well-known for its antimicrobial properties, since it’s the precursor to monolaurin, a more powerful antimicrobial agent that is able to fight viruses and bacterial infections. When lauric acid is digested, certain enzymes within the digestive tract form the valuable type of monoglyceride called monolaurin.
