Lauric acid is a medium-length essential fatty acid
occurring in laurel, coconut and palm oils. Lauric acid is part
of the class of organic compounds known as lipids, which are
vital in the construction of cellular membranes.
Lauric acid was first
discovered as the main antiviral and antibacterial substance in
human breast milk.

Essential fatty acids govern growth, vitality
and mental state.
The brain is 60 percent fat and needs essential fatty acids to
function properly. Essential fatty acids are critical for good
physical health, mental health, concentration and memory. Because the body does not make essential fatty
acids, they are only available through our diets or through
Although the body needs both Omega 3 and Omega-6 fatty acids to
thrive, the typical Western diet provides ample amounts of the
Omega 6 fatty acids. When discussing the benefits of fatty acids,
most experts focus on the Omega 3 fatty acids since these are most
often found lacking in the American diet.
Research consistently links mood disorders to low concentrations
of Omega 3 fatty acids in the body. Omega 3 fatty acids keep the
brain's traffic pattern of thoughts, reactions, and reflexes
running smoothly and efficiently. Numerous studies show that
children with the symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder have
lower levels of essential fatty acids. Studies also show that
lower levels of essential fatty acids can result in problems with
learning, behavior, temper, sleep, and immune function.
Omega 3 fatty acids are shown to be good for the heart and can
lower the death rate from heart attacks. These fatty acids also
act as an anti-inflammatory, can lower cholesterol and
triglyceride levels, and reduce blood pressure.
Scientific research also shows that Omega 3 fatty acids can also
reduce the symptoms and risks of diabetes, stroke, rheumatoid
arthritis, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis,
some cancers, and mental decline. Omega 3 fatty acids can improve
mild to moderate depression and symptoms of other mental health
problems like bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.
A diet rich in Omega 3 essential fatty acids can reduce
hypertension and improve the symptoms of lupus, Raynaud's disease,
and other autoimmune diseases.
Fatty, cold-water fish, including salmon, herring, sardines,
halibut, bluefish, tuna, cod, flounder, trout, shrimp and mackerel
are all excellent sources of Omega 3 fatty acids. Canola oil,
flaxseed, flaxseed oil, walnuts, and leafy green vegetables all
good sources of plant-based Omega 3 fatty acids.
