CAPRYLIC ACID PLUS 120'S
Caprylic Acid Plusis formulated to combat the fungal infections such as Thrush, otherwise known as Chronic Candidiasis. The most common species of yeast responsible for this condition is Candida albicans. Candida is kept in check in healthy persons. Unfortunately, this opportunistic fungus can overpopulate and affect the skin, genitals, and digestive tract. This can often happen following use of broad spectrum antibiotics or from high blood glucose levels common for those suffering from diabetes.
Caprylic acid is a naturally occurring short chained fatty acid that kills off the Candida yeast by disintegrating its cell walls. Its antibacterial action is further strengthened by the anti fungal properties of pau d’arco, cloves and garlic extract.
What is it?
Chemically known as octanoic acid, caprylic acid is a medium chained fatty acid naturally found in the milk of many mammals. It can also be found in smaller amounts in coconut oil and palm kernel oils.
Caprylic acid is best known as an effective anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, often recommended for the treatment of ringworm and candidiasis (systemic yeast overgrowth).
It has been shown to restore and maintain 'normal' or healthy level of yeast in the body, therefore maintaining adequate balance of 'beneficial' or 'healthy' bacteria in relation to yeast and other bacteria that tends to take over the gastrointestinal system. It has also been used for the treatment of leaky gut, IBS gastroenteritis, salmonella, and even parasitic infections. Scientists believe that Caprylic acid is able to break down the protective outer layer of fungi, making it easier for the immune system to attack and eradicate.
Candida albicans is a fungus that is normally found in the human gastrointestinal and genital tracts. A candida infection occurs if the fungus overgrows or spreads to other areas of the body. People with candida overgrowth typically feel fatigued and have trouble concentrating which are both caused by the toxin that the yeast produces and which is absorbed easily through the intestinal lining.
You can ask your practitioner to do a test for this toxin to make a diagnosis.
Apart from this test, a definitive diagnosis of candidiasis is difficult because the symptoms can be non-specific and vary depending on the part of the body that is involved. For example, candida can cause headaches, fatigue, itching, tingling or burning sensations, memory loss, joint and muscle pain, constipation or diarrhea, PMS prostatitis, and even diabetes or hypothyroidism. The symptoms may be worse in damp or mouldy places. They may also worsen after consuming sugary or yeast-based foods. Visually a candida infection appears as white spots that may grow together. The skin surrounding the spots is very red. There may be a white, curdly discharge with a yeasty smell.
