caprylic acid

Caprylic Acid is a short chain fatty acid, known for its antifungal action. It is known to have anti-fungal properties, and is often recommended by nutritionists for the treatment of candidiasis. It is excellent for dealing with candida in the intestines, which are frequently colonized by candida. It is effective against all candida species. It helps restore and maintain a healthy yeast balance. It is not absorbed in stomach, making it an excellent choice for candida of the gut.

Caprylic Acid is also used in the treatment of some bacterial infections. Due to its relatively short chain length it has no difficulty in penetrating fatty cell wall membranes, hence its effectiveness in combating certain lipid-coated bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus and various species of Streptococcus. It was reported many years ago to have some antifungal activity in vitro. Other in vitro studies showed some activity against some viruses and bacteria. The monoglyceride of Caprylic Acid, monooctanin, given as an infusion into the bile duct, has been used for gallstone dissolution.
