What is Lauric Myristic Acid?

Lauric Myristic Acid, also known as dodecanoic acid, is a saturated fatty acid with 12 carbon atoms. It is a white needle-like crystal at room temperature level, with a moderate fragrance of laurel oil. Insoluble in water, soluble in methanol, ether, chloroform as well as other organic solvents, a little soluble in acetone in addition to petroleum ether. Although called lauric acid, it is just 1-3% in the product of laurel oil. Today, the veggie oils with high content of Lauric Myristic Acid are coconut oil 45-52%, oil palm seed oil 44-52%, babassu seed oil 43-44% and so forth.Lauric Myristic Acid, although a saturated fatty acid, has a reduced danger of heart disease than various other saturated fatty acids.

The largest function of lauric acid is its antibacterial capacity, which can enhance immunity. Lots of people discover that after consuming lauric acid, the antiviral ability is greatly improved, such as flu, high temperature, herpes, and so on, lauric acid also Might relieve antibiotic resistance, reduce cardiovascular disease risk, and also much more. For girls, one of the significant benefits of lauric acid is skin treatment. Research studies have actually found that its skin care impact is much better than some well-known cosmetics.

Lauric Myristic Acid Uses

1. Lauric Myristic Acid is primarily utilized in the manufacturing of alkyd materials, wetting representatives, detergents, pesticides, surfactants, food additives and also resources for cosmetics. This product is usually used as a lubricant and has different functions such as lubricant and vulcanizing representative. However, due to its destructive effect on metals, it is typically not used for plastic items such as cords as well as cable televisions. This item is most extensively made use of in the surfactant market, and also can also be utilized in the perfume sector as well as the pharmaceutical industry.
2. Lauric Myristic Acid is used as surface treatment representative for preparation of bonding. It is additionally utilized in the manufacture of alkyd materials, chemical fiber oils, chemicals, synthetic fragrances, plastic stabilizers, anti-corrosion ingredients for fuel and lubricating oils. It is extensively used in the manufacture of various kinds of surfactants, such as cationic laurylamine, lauryl nitrile, trilaurylamine, lauryl dimethylamine, lauryl trimethyl ammonium salt, etc; anionic types include sodium lauryl sulfate, Lauric acid sulfate, triethanolammonium lauryl sulfate, etc; zwitterionic kinds include lauryl betaine, imidazoline laurate, etc; non-ionic surfactants consist of poly-L-alcohol monolaurate, polyoxyethylene lauryl acid ester, glyceryl laurate polyoxyethylene ether, lauric acid diethanolamide, and so on. Furthermore, it is additionally made use of as artificial additive and in the manufacture of cosmetics.
3. Lauric Myristic Acid is the raw product for the manufacturing of soaps, cleaning agents, aesthetic surfactants as well as chemical fiber oils.

Production Method of Lauric Myristic Acid

Commercial manufacturing approaches can be identified right into 2 classifications: one is acquired from all-natural veggie oils by saponification or decay under heat and high pressure; the other is splitting up from synthetic fatty acids. Japan primarily uses coconut oil and also hand kernel oil as basic materials to generate Lauric Myristic Acid. The all-natural veggie oils utilized for the prep work of dodecanoic acid are: coconut oil, Radix japonica bit oil, hand kernel oil and Radix japonica kernel oil, etc. In other plants, such as palm bit oil, rubbing tree seed oil, camphor tree seed oil, etc, dodecanoic acid can additionally be produced by the service market. The remaining C12 fraction from dodecanoic acid removal contains a huge quantity of dodecenoic acid, which can be hydrogenated at normal stress without stimulant, as well as can be exchanged dodecanoic acid with a conversion price of greater than 86%.

It is divided and fine-tuned from coconut oil and other veggie oils after hydrolysis.

In the form of glycerides, it is naturally existing in coconut oil, arborvitae bit oil, palm kernel oil as well as pepper bit oil, and so on. Industrially, it can be acquired by hydrolysis of natural oils. Coconut oil, water and driver are included into the autoclave, and also hydrolyzed into glycerol and also fat at 250 ℃ and regarding 5MPa stress, which includes 45%-80% dodecanoic acid, and dodecanoic acid is acquired by distillation.

Dual Effects of Coconut Oil Lauric Myristic Acid on Redox Relationships

Coconut oil supplementation has been reported to reduce neuroinflammation. Nevertheless, coconut oil can be found in Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO), Crude Coconut Oil (ECO) and Fine-tuned Coconut Oil (RCO). To day, the impacts of the coconut oil extraction process (and also its primary fat component Lauric Myristic Acid) on mobile antioxidant levels, redox homeostasis, and neuronal inflammation are unidentified. Below, we demonstrate the antioxidant levels and also mobile effects of coconut oil extracted by numerous approaches in vitro cultured human neuroblastoma cells (SH-SY5Y). cells revealed better mitochondrial health. Comparable trends were observed in the launch of responsive oxygen species (ROS), essential oxidative stress reaction genetics (GCLC, HO-1, as well as Nqo1), and also inflammatory genetics (IL6, TNFα, as well as iNOS) in SH-SY5Y cells. Our outcomes recommend that VCOs and also ECOs give better neural wellness mostly by keeping mobile redox equilibrium. In addition, RCOs prepared by solvent extraction as well as chemical refining processes do not have obvious helpful effects. We then extended our research study to find out why mobile redox balance is preserved in neuroblastoma cells by VCO as well as ECO. Our GC-MS results indicated that Lauric Myristic Acid (C14:0) (LA) web content was the major distinction in fat make-up extracted by various procedures. As a result, we assessed the efficacy of LA in SH-SY5Y cells. LA showed a dose-dependent effect. At IC 50 concentration (11.8 μM), LA down-regulated oxidative tension feedback genes and also inflammatory genetics. The outcomes plainly showed that LA inhibited neuroinflammation as well as given powerful cellular antioxidant activity, therefore shielding cells. Effectiveness was additionally examined in normal cell lines such as fibroblasts (L929) to cross-validate that the outcomes were not incorrect positives. Various focus of LA revealed high compatibility with L929 cells. Based on our observations, we wrapped up that VCOs and also ECOs supply far better mobile protection because of their powerful antioxidant systems. As a result, we advocate the addition of VCOs and/or ECOs in the diet plan for a healthy way of life.
