Lauric acid is as a natural compound that contains germ killing and disinfectant properties. When consumed, your body converts the lauric acid into monolaurin. Monolaurin is a monogylceride that attacks lipid-coated viruses in the body. This simple fatty acid is shown to have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-protozoa properties. Lauric acid is also known to kill bacteria and fungi.
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, high-protein, low-carb diet that forces the body to burn fat as energy instead of carbs. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted in to glucose as energy. However, within limited carbohydrate intake, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. These ketone bodies replace glucose as the main energy source for your body. Ketones are a more efficient energy source. Thus the ketogenic diet alters the body’s metabolic function by retraining the body to burn fat instead of carbohydrates.
