DESCRIPTION

Now Foods Caprylic Acid Intestinal Health 600 mg - 100 Softgels

Caprylic Acid Supplement
If you’re looking to buy caprylic acid as a dietary supplement, NOW Foods presents this high-quality Caprylic Acid Supplement in softgel form for digestive health. Caprylic Acid 600 mg softgels support a healthy digestive environment and overall health and well-being. Naturally derived from coconut and palm kernel oil, Caprylic Acid is a nutrient that is also known as octanoic acid. It is a medium chain fatty acid, or MCT.

NOW Caprylic Acid 600 mg is formulated without soy, gluten, corn, dairy, or egg and is low sodium, kosher, and keto friendly.

    Caprylic Acid for Digestion
    NOW’s Caprylic Acid may contribute to maintaining a healthy digestive bacteria balance in your gut and digestive tract. Many people, including experts, believe that gut health is essential for overall wellness. When our digestive flora (friendly bacteria) is out of balance, it allows for growth of bad bacteria and pathogens. Those harmful elements can take over if there aren’t enough of the good guys to clean your digestive system. That’s where Caprylic Acid comes in. It has been found to help foster and nourish a healthy gut bacteria balance. When the environment in your digestive system is in balance digestion is calmer, you may have more energy, and you may feel healthier.

    NOW Caprylic Acid
    NOW has been an industry leader in the natural products arena for over 30 years. Even when healthy foods and natural supplements weren’t popular, NOW was committed to developing innovative products that empower people to live their best, healthiest lives possible. NOW Caprylic Acid upholds this mission by delivering quality, pure MCT to help nourish and support your digestive balance. Quality and safety are key factors for NOW when creating and manufacturing supplements, foods, and their other natural products. They understand you are putting your trust in their hands and because of that, NOW is dedicated to delivering only the most top-notch, quality-tested, pure products possible.

    Caprylic Acid Benefits
    Caprylic Acid is believed to be antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial, therefore many users claim it can control candida overgrowth. It may also provide anti-inflammatory benefits. Caprylic Acid is used to treat vaginal yeast infections, skin issues, and digestive troubles. It can be taken internally or used topically for these purposes. Many people use Caprylic Acid supplementation for conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, Chron’s, ulcerative colitis, or inflammatory bowel disorder. Additionally, many people believe that Caprylic Acid can assist weight loss and increase bodybuilding and athletic performance.

    Does MCT Oil Have Caprylic Acid?
    A variety of important healthy fats (medium chain fatty acids) are found in coconuts, which is a rich source for MCT oil. Caprylic Acid is one of them. Medium chain fatty acids are able to be used efficiently by the body and transported directly to the cells for energy production. Other medium chain fatty acids, or triglycerides) include caproic acid (also known as hexanoic acid), capric acid (also known as decanoic acid), and lauric acid (also known as dodecanoic acid). Because of their short-chain structure, as opposed to long-chain fatty acids, MCTs are broken down quickly in the body and sent straight into the liver where they are converted into quick fuel for the body and therefore seldom stored as fat. While coconut oil contains all the medium chain fatty acids, MCT oil is a concentrated source that usually contains only two of the healthy fatty acids mentioned above. Caprylic Acid is generally included along with capric acid because they are believed to be the most efficiently used fatty acids of those found in coconuts or palm kernel oil.

    Now Foods Caprylic Acid is a naturally derived nutrient traditionally used to support internal wellness. Also known as octanoic acid, Now Foods Caprylic Acid is a short-to-medium chain fatty acid (MCT) that is naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil. Now Foods Caprylic Acid supports healthy digestion through its ability to promote a healthy balance of intestinal flora.

    NOW's Mission
    The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

    In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development.

    I used this as part of an anti-candida regimen, and it has helped me. My personal advice is just don't take it at the same time as oregano oil or on an empty stomach, because it might give you a short-lived but rather intense stomach ache. Other than that, I'll continue to use this.
