Now Foods Caprylic Acid is a dietary supplement. A single tab contains 600 mg of caprylic acid per 1 g of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT).
Caprylic acid – eight-carbon (octanoic) acid; classified as a medium-chain, saturated triglyceride (MCT); it is present in large quantities in coconut and palm oil and in some animal fats, particularly in goat and sheep fat. It shows antimicrobial and antifungal properties and it can prevent bacterial digestive infections and mycosis (especially candidiasis).
Caprylic acid inhibits the growth of bacteria responsible for infections
As numerous studies have demonstrated, caprylic acid showed antimicrobial and bacteriostatic properties against following bacteria:
- Vibrio parahaemolyticus
- Escherichia coli
- Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus dysgalactiae, Streptococcus uberis
- Staphylococcus aureus
Caprylic acid shows synergy with copper, zinc, silver and beta-glucan in bacterial infection treatment, especially antibiotic-resistant. It is an outstanding supplementation of antibiotic and sulfonamide treatment as well as can be applied separately.
Caprylic acid is effective in candidiasis (mycosis) treatment
Candida albicans is a kind fungus, a one of the few species of the Candida genus, that causes opportunistic infections among immunocompromised patients – particularly oral, oesophagus and further digestive tract mycosis (candidiasis), lung mycosis as well as general infection that may lead to serious complications.
Candidiasis is a fungal opportunistic infection of mucosa, in some cases – a general infection. Similarly to other kinds of mycoses, the incidence of infection can be increased by antibiotic treatment, immunosuppression, deficiency of B group vitamins, hormonal imbalance, alcohol abuse, artificial heart valves, catheters or invasive treatments.
Numerous studies on caprylic acid confirmed its effectiveness of the treatment of digestive tract candidiasis. It has been demonstrated that regular supplementation leads to a notable reduction of yeast colonies. One experiment showed that caprylic acid reduces amount of Candida albicans in fecal culture up to 30-90% after only 16 days.
Caprylic acid should be combined with minerals, which delay its absorption into bloodstream and extend its resistance in digestive tract, as well as with another substance that improves mycosis treatment, for example oregano oil.
Caprylic acid improves gastrointestinal tract regeneration
Caprylic acid improves the regeneration of gastrointestinal tract epithelium, particularly large intestine, which results in more appropriate absorption of nutrients, vitamins and minerals as well as prevents peptic ulcer.
Moreover, it is effective against inflammations and diarrhea, which makes it a possible treatment for irritable bowel syndrome, cryptococcosis (a mycosis caused by Cryptococcus neoformans) and colibacteriosis (a disease caused by pathogenic bacteria Escherichia coli).
To sum up, Now Foods Caprylic Acid is particularly recommended for immunocompromised patients who suffer from chronic digestive tract mycosis or systemic mycosis. Its symptoms are early fatigue, lack of energy, mood depression, decrease in libido, depression, irritability, lack of concentration and excessive craving for products rich in carbohydrates.
