Candida overgrowth can cause cause vaginal yeast infections, nail fungus, skin conditions, Brain fog, oral thrush along with Irritable bowel Syndrome and SIBO. The natural anti-fungal properties of caprylic acid have been shown to kill and reduce yeast.
What Is Caprylic Acid
Caprylic Acid is a medium-chain fatty acid shown to have potent antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. These properties may make caprylic acid a helpful remedy for many conditions. Research suggests it can be useful in managing yeast infections, skin conditions, digestive disorders, and high cholesterol. Its use as a disinfectant may also help lower the risk of antibiotic resistance.
A 2011 study found that caprylic acid was effective in treating candida infections.
Candida yeast infections are a common medical problem. Candida infections are fungal infections. They can cause vaginal yeast infections, nail fungus, and oral thrush. The anti-fungal properties of caprylic acid are thought to kill and reduce yeast.
Candida Overgrowth Signs & Symptom
It’s important to note that overgrowth of candida in the gut can eventually lead to candida overgrowth throughout the body if left untreated. Awareness of symptoms early on is vital to patients’ overall health and well-being. Symptoms of Candida in the gi tract may include:
- Abdominal pain
- Bloody stool (rare)
- Mucus present in stool
Just as caprylic acid may help manage yeast infections, it may also be beneficial for certain skin conditions. This is largely thanks to its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which help it kill off bacteria that live in the skin.
Coconut oil can improve the symptoms of certain skin disorders by moisturizing and soothing the skin. One 2019 study found that virgin coconut oil may help suppress inflammatory markers and enhance skin barrier function.
There is some evidence that medium-chain fatty acids like caprylic acid may help patients who have certain digestive disorders.
The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties of caprylic acid may help manage conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease or irritable bowel syndrome. Both of these conditions involve inflammation
The antibacterial properties may also be beneficial for people with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
Research suggests that replacing long-chain fatty acids from animal foods with medium-chain fatty acids, such as caprylic acid in coconut oil, may help decrease the incidence of spontaneous colitis and protect against inflammation in the gut.
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
- It helps to regulate the acidity in your stomach and gut
- It boosts your immune system
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 study 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 study 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)
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Lactose intolerance
- Tinea corporis (ringworm)
