What Is Caprylic Acid?

First discovered in goat’s milk, Caprylic Acid is a short-chain fatty acid found in some mammal’s milk, as well as in tropical oils like coconut and palm kernel oil. This marvelous fatty acid actually has a very beneficial effect on microbial balance in the gut!†

Caprylic Acid Supplements Aren't All Formulated Equal

That’s right, most of the caprylic acid supplements I researched simply weren’t formulated to get the job done. Caprylic acid is a short-chain, 8 carbon saturated fatty acid that can be absorbed too soon to have any effect, or be damaged and even digested by stomach acid, gastric juices, and your pancreatic enzymes. That’s why I formulated mine to be specially encapsulated and buffered with calcium and potassium caprylates in order to protect its viability, and help it reach the large intestine and colon intact. The buffering mineral caprylates also make my formulation much gentler on the stomach.

Supports For Your Gut Microbiome†

Caprylic acid helps create a favorable environment for beneficial probiotics. Because of my concentrated Caprylic Acid’s ability to optimize digestive tract ph balance and create an inhospitable environment for less favorable microorganisms, it does a fantastic job of helping to promote the ideal environment for beneficial probiotic bacteria.†

Supporting Gut Health in An Important Way To Promote A Healthy Immune Response, Too!†

Supporting gut health and intestinal balance can help promote gut barrier integrity. The gut barrier is an important body system that prevents unwanted particles and substances from crossing into your bloodstream and lymphatic system, which in turn helps your body keep its immune responses in check.†

Who Should Take Caprylic Acid?

Caprylic Acid is the right supplement for you if you’re:

  • Tackling digestive tract support and balance†
  • Wanting to optimize the gut environment for healthy probiotic bacteria†
  • Tired of the way other Caprylic Acid supplements make your tummy feel
  • Wanting to support your immune system†

Suggested Use: Take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules in the evening on an empty stomach. Consult your physician before use.

Contents: 120 Capsules

Warning: Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women.

DOES NOT CONTAIN: Gluten, wheat, dairy, corn, soy, GMOs, or yeast.


Doesn’t Caprylic Acid cause upset stomach?

As I said above, most of the supplements I researched simply weren’t properly formulated. My Caprylic Acid is bound to the alkaline minerals calcium and potassium in order to buffer them so they don’t upset the stomach. This also helps it reach your large intestine and colon intact so it can exert its beneficial effects where it’s needed most.

Where does Caprylic Acid come from?

While minute amounts of Caprylic Acid can be found in a variety of foods, especially mammalian milks and tropical oils, my supplement is sourced from tropical palm kernel oil.

Is Caprylic Acid safe for children, pregnant women, or breastfeeding mothers?

Caprylic acid supplements are tolerated differently by everyone. In the case of children, I absolutely recommend working with your child’s pediatrician or other qualified healthcare provider before deciding to supplement with it. With regard to pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers, I do not generally recommend caprylic acid supplementation. If you have any concerns, please work closely with your doctor, midwife, or other qualified healthcare provider.
