What is Caprylic Acid?

Caprylic acid is a fatty acid.  Discovered in the late 1930's, caprylic acid has been found to be a very effective antifungal agent, especially in the control and maintenance of normal healthy microorganisms in the digestive tract.

Caprylic acid shows a fungastatic action by inhibiting the separation of buds from the parent candida cell.  At high doses, it destroys the integrity of the candida cell wall, causing the cells to leak and collapse.
