CAPRYLIC ACID (C8) : The Saturated Fat that fights Candida, Infections & Acne
Caprylic Acid (C8) is a type of beneficial saturated fatty acid that has antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.
It’s been linked to prevention of urinary tract infections, bladder infections, Candida, sexually transmitted diseases, oral infections like gingivitis and many other conditions.
As a natural immune-booster, caprylic acid is commonly used as an ingredient in topical fungicides.
Taken internally, it helps naturally reduce yeast growth within the gastrointestinal tract while helping beneﬁcial bacteria thrive. At the same time, caprylic acid is completely natural and doesn’t pose the same risks as harsh antibiotics or chemical treatments. While antibiotics can kill off all bacteria in the gut environment — both good and bad — caprylic acid can actually do the opposite, helping prevent an imbalance between the presence of various bacteria.
