This formula is temporarily unavailable from the manufacturer.
Caprylic acid, which can be found in foods such as coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and milk fat, is a natural medium-chain fatty acid which has several important uses, including as a sanitizer in food and beverage processing operations, and as a dietary supplement, to help maintain normal levels of microflora in the large and small intestines.
Caprylic acid won't adversely affect the growth of the 'good' intestinal bacteria which help us digest, but it will help inhibit the growth of opportunistic fungi such as Candida albicans, which sometimes become overpopulated due to poor diet or from taking antibiotics or oral contraceptives. Caprylex is a special buffered formulation of it, to provide a timed, controlled release of caprylic acid throughout both intestines.
