  • Caprylic acid is the common name for the eight-carbon saturated fatty acid known by the systematic name octanoic acid.
  • This is a medium chain fatty acid (C8H16O2), also called octanoic acid, that is found naturally in coconut oil, palm oil, butter fat as well as in human breast milk.
  • It is known to have anti-fungal as well as some anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.
  • It is an oily liquid that is minimally soluble in water with a slightly unpleasant rancid-like smell.
  • One of the difficulties with caprylic / octanoic acid is that, being a medium chain fatty acid, it is very easily digested and absorbed by the body. Thus, it often gets absorbed in the stomach and small intestines before it reaches the large intestines, where it it most needed – because that is where most of the candida overgrowth is found.
  • The better brands of caprylic acid come in enteric coated or timed-released capsules to ensure that it gets released only when it reaches the colon – and that it is released slowly there, so that it goes through the entire length of the large intestines.
  • One brand of caprylic acid that it highly regarded by many natural health practitioners is Caproyl. This combines the acid with psyllium husk and safflower oil.
  • Caprylic / octanoic acid is not known to be toxic and is generally safe to use. However, it has an unpleasant rancid taste and may cause mild gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea and diarrhea.
  • Caprylic acid is used commercially in the production of esters used in perfumery and also in the manufacture of dyes.
  • Caprylic acid is known to have anti-fungal properties, and is often recommended by nutritionists for the treatment of candidiasis.
  • Caprylic acid is also used in the treatment of some bacterial infections.
  • The anti-fungal effect of caprylic acid has been demonstrated in both clinical trails and in vitro studies.
