Caprylic Acid is a dietary supplement formulated to support anti-fungal activity, anti-candida growth, healthy yeast balance, and a good environment for beneficial flora. Caprylic Acid is available in softgels from Natura-Genics®.
Caprylic acid is a medium-chain fatty acid that is found in coconut oil. It is believed to promote potent antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory effects. Oral intake of caprylic acid appears to have a time-release action, slowly allowing the fatty acids to enter the bloodstream and into the intestinal tract.
Benefits of Caprylic Acid
Caprylic acid is well known for its anti-fungal properties. It is known in particular for its ability to assist in combating candidiasis, a fungal infection caused by Candida, which is a type of yeast. Candida is commonly found in places such as the skin, throat, gut, and vagina and can go unnoticed for a long time. Some research has found caprylic acid to be just as effective, if not more, than prescribed medications for fungal infections.
• Supports Healthy Yeast Balance
Yeast infections can affect different parts of the body. Some common types of yeast infections include thrush, vaginitis, and yeast infections in the skin which can cause itching and rashes. Caprylic acid promotes natural yeast-fighting effects by interfering with the cell wall of the yeast and inhibiting the growth by causing the cell membrane of the yeast to rupture.
• Supports A Good Environment for Beneficial Flora
Supplementing with Caprylic Acid may assist in slowing down yeast, such as Candida, from thriving in the body. This may help promote a healthier environment for good bacteria in the microbiome. Caprylic acid also appears to line the walls of the stomach and intestines without causing imbalance and promoting digestive health.
