Sustained Release Anti-Fungal/Anti-Yeast
Formula Is Preferred by Many Doctors
Naturally Sustained Release Caprylates Deliver Caprylic Acid
Throughout the Intestinal Tract
Caprylic acid is an anti-fungal, eight carbon, short
chain fatty acid preferred by many doctors over the prescription drug
Nystatin for the control of Candida Albicans.
The Caprylic Plus formula uses caprylic acid
as mineral caprylates. The solubility profile of the specially prepared
ingredients allows for a slow, uniform sustained release of caprylic
acid along the entire length of the gastrointestinal tract. Although
caprylic acid is readily absorbed in the intestines, the naturally
sustained release Caprylic Plus formula ensures the delivery of
caprylic acid throughout the colonic region where Candida infestation is
Many caprylic acid supplements are made with sodium
caprylate. Caprylic Plus is sodium free, using instead the
essential minerals, calcium, magnesium and zinc for its natural
sustained release action.
Caprylic Acid Proven Effective against Candida Albicans in Both
Clinical Trials and In Vitro Studies
The anti-fungal effect of caprylic acid has ben
demonstrated in both clinical trials and in vitro studies. In the pH
range of 2.5 - 8.5, caprylic acid exhibits high fungicidal activity
against yeasts, especially Candida Albicans. In vitro testing
using 0.5 X -5M, caprylic acid destroys 100% of all Candida cells within
60 minutes at pH 6.
The exact mechanism of fungicidal action is not fully
understood; however, it is postulated that caprylic acid dissolves the
cell membrane of yeast, causing changes in fluidity and permeability
that lead to membrane disaggregation.
It has been said that Candida migrate into the
mucosal wall. Because of its excellent lipotrophic properties (which
allow it to penetrate the mucosal cells), caprylic acid is also believed
to be effective against intramucosal Candida. Absorbed caprylic acid can
be oxidized both in the mitochondrial and extra-mitochondrial
compartments of mammalian tissues, thereby eliminating any additional
toxic burden to the liver.
Caprylic Plus is also recommended in the
prophylactic treatment of Candida during long term antibiotic therapy.
In addition to its effectiveness against all Candida
species and strains, caprylic acid has been successfully used against
other gastrointestinal yeast species such at Geotrichium and Rhodotorula.
Caprylic Plus also seems to be of benefit to
patients with mild constipation. It is believed that either because of
its slightly soapy nature, caprylic acid may function as a lubricant or
that the reduction in the Candida infestation permits more regular bowel
Non-Toxic and Non-Sensitizing At Recommended Dosages
Caprylic Plus is virtually non-toxic and
non-sensitizing at the recommended dosages. Very large doses (5 times
the recommended dose) can cause mucosal irritation and produce diarrhea
and nausea. In some patients, fatigue and flu-like symptoms may occur
during the first 2 - 5 days of caprylic acid use. This reaction is
currently described as a yeast die-off and reabsorption phenomenon.
Herxheimer reaction (antigens reacting with antibodies) results in
histamine release, swelling and pain.
Additional Recommendations for Controlling Candida Albicans
To restore proper colon ecology and inhibit the
growth of pathogenic organisms, Caprylic Plus should be taken in
conjunction with potent, high quality, lactobacillus acidophilus and
bifidobacteria supplements such as Acidophilus E.C. and Bifido Plus E.C.
to normalize the levels of these healthful microorganisms.
Paradex Herbal Formula contains herbs that have been
shown to inhibit the growth of Candida and to eliminate other intestinal
parasites that may be present.
High potency Garlic and CoEnzyme Q10 are
beneficial in treating Candida Albicans. Homeopathic formulas are also
Since nutritional status is likely to be compromised,
a high potency, balanced multiple vitamin and mineral supplement such as
Mega N-R-G Thirty is also recommended.
