This is explained in the protocol post.

Quote: “Caprylic acid is a supplement obtained from coconut oil and is the antifungal component of the oil. Candida albicans are believed to be able to adapt to Caprylic acid capsules after 6-8 weeks on the diet while it cannot adapt easily to undecenoic acid (SF722). On the other hand, pure coconut oil contains Caprylic acid with additional benefits, and Candida cannot adapt to it easily if at all, plus it’s capable of changing the environment of the intestines to a less hospitable environment for Candida albicans.”
