Caprylic Acid is a short chain fatty acid, which has anti-fungal activity in the intestine, but does not have negative effects on the normal gut microflora.* This formula beneficially delivers caprylic acid in a naturally sustained released form, to the small and large intestine.* Efficacy of caprylic acid has been demonstrated in both clinical and in vitro studies.* The exact mechanism of fungicidal action is not fully understood; however, it is believed that caprylic acid dissolves in the cell membrane of yeast causing changes in fluidity and permeability that lead to membrane disaggregation.*
