Cold-pressed coconut oil contains undecylenic acid, caprylic acid, and lauric acid; in fact, these are the reasons it’s used in a good Candida treatment. So I don’t know how or why we would worry about it being an alkalizing substance.

Don’t worry about it affecting your pH balance, just be glad that it’s available. Be sure to use virgin cold-pressed oil.

By the way, you want an acidic pH in your intestines, so all the acids in coconut oil actually helps to create a beneficial environment for the good bacteria.
