Several studies have now shown that medium chain fatty acids can enhance physical or athletic performance.

LymeBook.com: Lauric Acid is a derivative of lauric acid, a component of coconuts. The antimicrobial properties of coconut oil have long been known. Lauric Acid harnesses these properties in a concentrated formula.Lauric Acid has also been found to have broad-spectrum antimicrobial actions against a wide range of microorganisms. Some researchers have also speculated that Lauric Acid has a helpful effect in removing the neurotoxin associated with Lyme Disease infection, through a soap-like or emulsifying action. This effect may result in breaking up infective Lyme Disease colonies.Lauric Acid is a very promising and useful antimicrobial that has been shown, through user reports, to have a strong effect against Lyme Disease.
