Supports Healthy Intestinal Flora*
Candida infections are fungal infections. Candida overgrowth can can cause vaginal yeast infections, nail fungus, and oral thrush along with Irritable bowel Syndrome and SIBO. The natural anti-fungal properties of caprylic acid are thought to kill and reduce yeast. A 2011 study found that caprylic acid was effective in treating candida infections.
Caprylic acid (CA), is an oily liquid found in the milk of certain mammals as well as coconut oil and palm oil. A medium-chain saturated fatty acid, it is said to have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that may be useful for issues ranging from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) to epilepsy.
Benefits of Caprylic Acid a Natural Anti Fungal:
A few of the benefits of caprylic acid a natural anti fungal:
- It kills yeast like Candida albicans
- Studies have shown its potency to be similar to prescription antifungals

Antibiotic resistance is a growing problem around the world. Caprylic acid can potentially help lower the risk of antibiotic resistance. Doctors may be able to avoid prescribing antibiotics by treating some bacterial infections with coconut oil or caprylic acid. This approach could help defeat bacteria without strengthening it through antibiotic exposure.
A 2011 studyTrusted Source found that caprylic acid was effective in treating some candida infections. Some scientists believe that caprylic acid is so effective because it can break down the membranes of candida cells.
A 2005 studyTrusted Source found that caprylic acid was successful in reducing five different types of bacteria in contaminated milk, including E. coli. The study recommended considering CA as an alternative treatment for bacterial infections.
Caprylic acid has also been shown to help with the Following;
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Skin infections
- Candidiasis (including yeast infections and oral thrush)
- Hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol and triglycerides)

- Lactose intolerance
- Tinea corporis (ringworm)
