How will Caprylic Acid help me? Caprylic acid is a fatty acid found in coconut oil. It has antifungal and antibacterial properties, making it useful to help manage candida or thrush. These properties can also help with other digestive and skin complaints, particularly if yeast or bacteria or present. Each Caprylic Acid capsule is enteric coated to ensure that the contents are released in the intestinal tract. This product can work in partnership with Pro B11, which provides almost 12 billion bacteria per serving. What is Candida? Good health begins with balance, especially in the intestinal system. Candida, along with many other types of yeast and bacteria, lives on our skin and inside the body without causing any problems. However, when this yeast grows too much it can cause oral or genital thrush. Oral thrush is most common in the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. Genital thrush is caused by too much yeast in the vagina and can be caused by pregnancy, weakened immune system, sexual activity, and some lubricants. High sugar diets can increase yeast in the body too. Over half of adult women will get at least one yeast infection in their lifetime. Is Caprylic Acid suitable for everyone? Due to the black walnut content, Caprylic Acid is not suitable for those with nut allergies.
