I’m assuming you’re speaking of Caprylic acid; and I’m aware of what Caprylic acid is; it’s one of three different fatty acids that are in coconut oil. But nearly half of the fatty acid in coconut oil is made up of Lauric Acid which is why coconut oil is so important to our protocol.
But you didn’t type “Caprylic acid capsules” – you posted that you were taking “coconut oil” in capsules. There’s a difference, a huge difference. Quote: “I use coconut oil to cook my egg in every morning…and use it in the water when i boil rice noodles…and take it in pill form as well.”
This is the only reason I replied to your post. But it seems you’re not actually taking coconut oil in capsule form, if you were, you would be taking all three of the beneficial fatty acids which makes coconut an invaluable supplement. The other two acids are Capric Acid and Lauric Acid.
and is the part of the oil that kills the yeast..
Actually, Caprylic acid is not the strongest antifungal acid in coconut oil. Lauric acid is the part of the oil that is most useful in killing the Candida. Research was done using the various fatty acids against Candida. The final results were quoted as, “Lauric acid appeared to be the most active of a series of substrates tested.” This quote and the research is reported in the “Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications” Volume 43, Issue 3, Pages 413–419 if anyone is interested in reading the report.
you CAN take it in a capsule. You CAN take it in a liquid and it IS easier and more potent
You can take Caprylic acid in a capsule, and it’s easier to take Caprylic acid in a capsule than taking coconut oil by the spoonful, but it isn’t more potent, not even a close second.
Taking pure, virgin coconut oil would contain all three fatty acids as well as all the benefits that Caprylic acid alone doesn’t have. The pure oil will advance the treatment quicker than using only a small portion of the advantages of coconut oil, namely Caprylic acid. Of course, anyone could also take Caprylic capsules along with pure coconut oil.
I am posting under the category of “general discussion” and the discussion is coconut oil…I don’t believe I crossed any lines.
I would agree with you. Did someone tell you that you’ve crossed a line?
