Caprylic Acid (Octanoic Acid) is a medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) - typically found in coconut and palm kernel oils. It possesses anti-fungal properties that may help fight Candida, as well as help maintain normal stomach acidity levels. Much like carbohydrates, Caprylic acid is digested in the liver, not gut, which makes it a great source of quick energy and since it promotes a healthy balance of intestinal flora it supports healthy digestion all day long.
In a recent scientific abstract published by the US National Library of Medicine through the National Institutes of Health stated that Caprylic Acid was superior to a well-known prescription medicine in the effective treatment of frequent urination and incontinence when mixed infections were involved. The abstract concluded with the statement the Caprylic acid “has potential application for anti-cancer, anti-aging, anti-Alzheimer's disease, anti-Autism, anti-infection, and general circulatory improvement.”*** All of these potential benefits should be discussed with your local health care professional.
