Lauric (Genova)

Optimal Result: 2.2 - 27.3 µmol/L.

Lauric acid is a saturated fat and one of the medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) together myristic and capric acid. MCFAs are present in plant/vegetable oils and dairy products (milk, butter, etc). In human tissues, capric, lauric, and myristic acids are oxidized by peroxisomal oxidative pathways to a larger extent than the longer chain fatty acids.

What does it mean if your Lauric (Genova) result is too high?

Lauric acid raises your total and LDL cholesterol and hence your risk for various cardiovascular diseases.

Lower your dietary intake of coconuts, coconut oils, palm kernel oil and dairy products like milk/cheese/chocolate.
