  • 2016
  • This 2016 animal study, " Acute Treatment with Lauric Acid Reduces Blood Pressure and Oxidative Stress in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats " conducted at the Brazilian Federal University of Paraiba provided strong evidence of lauric acid's ability to reduce heart beat rates, blood pressure and oxidative stress in the arteries and hearts as well as kidneys of rats.

  • A 2016 review of coconut oil (which is nearly half lauric acid) was similarly inconclusive about the effects on cardiovascular disease risk. (wikipedia.org)
  • aggregation
  • It is concluded that lateral interactions due to the hydrophobic aliphatic tails of the fatty acids give rise to adsorption, aggregation, and flocculation, all of which cause inflections in the association isotherm rendering it nonlinear. (rti.org)
  • substance
  • In the laboratory, lauric acid may be used to investigate the molar mass of an unknown substance via the freezing-point depression. (wikipedia.org)
  • By melting lauric acid with the unknown substance, allowing it to cool, and recording the temperature at which the mixture freezes, the molar mass of the unknown compound may be determined. (wikipedia.org)
  • vegetables
  • Lauric acid is a saturated fat found in vegetables that provides a multitude of health benefits, such as helping to treat viral infections, according to WebMD. (reference.com)
  • mixture
  • A composite PCM has been fabricated by the binary eutectic mixture of tetradecanol (TD) and lauric acid (LA) absorbed into the expanded perlite (EP) using vacuum impregnation method, and its thermal conductivity was promoted by aluminium powder (AP) additive. (mdpi.com)

  • effects
  • Nonetheless, an extensive meta-analysis on foods affecting the total/LDL serum cholesterol ratio found in 2003 that the net effects of lauric acid on coronary artery disease outcomes remained uncertain. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lauric Acid inhibited the viability of both cancer cell types without altering the growth of MCF-10A normal breast epithelial cells, thus suggesting its specific potential to trigger antiproliferative effects in malignant cells. (healthimpactnews.com)

  • research
  • With that in mind, the research team set out to prove that heart health is promoted by coconut oil's lauric acid by inducing vasorelaxation and reducing oxidative stress in 35 spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) compared to six normotensive (normal blood pressure) Wistar Kyoto rats (WKR).
