Caprylic Acid Supplement - Helps to Fight Fungal Infections

Caprylic Acid is a supplement in vegetarian capsules with benefits for helping with chronic fungal infections. Also known as octanoic acid, Caprylic Acid is a medium-chain saturated fatty acid with 8 carbon atoms (C8:0). Naturally present in human breast milk, animal milks (cows, horses, goats) and certain vegetable oils (coconut and palm), it has been widely used in cosmetic applications and is now also recognised for its benefits as a nutritional supplement, available to buy at Supersmart.

What benefits are associated with Caprylic Acid?

Caprylic acid was discovered by French chemist Jules Buis in the 19th century, but it is only in the last 50 years or so that its benefits for treating chronic fungal infections have been recognised. It is widely used to stem the growth of intestinal saprophytic yeasts such as Candida albicans, the cause of frequent infections, particularly in women. The proliferation of this yeast-like fungus is known as candidiasis, a very persistent and treatment-resistant condition that negatively affects the host body.

Intestinal candidiasis generally produces a range of symptoms: indigestion, abdominal pain, irritable bowel, fatigue, headaches. It can also manifest in the skin, mouth (oral candidiasis) or the genitals (vaginal and vulvovaginal candidiasis). The best way to tackle candidiasis is to drastically reduce consumption of foods that promote yeast growth (all forms of sugar, fermented food and drinks, cheese) and take a supplement containing adequate levels of caprylic acid, between 450 and 1350mg a day, with meals.

Taking sodium caprylate (caprylic acid sodium salt) orally makes the yeast cell membranes dissolve, so preventing their survival, controlling their proliferation and simultaneously encouraging the growth of healthy intestinal flora. This medium-chain fatty acid is naturally fat-soluble and easily penetrates lipid-coated bacteria such as in streptococcal sore throat (strep throat), gastroenteritis-causing salmonella and Escherichia coli that can lead to food poisoning. Sodium caprylate is very well tolerated by the digestive system and side effects have been observed only rarely (nausea or heartburn that disappear quickly).

Buy Caprylic Acid capsules to help control intestinal saprophytic yeasts.
