In a healthy digestive tract, the micro-flora consists of balanced amounts of native friendly bacteria and other microbes. This balance is easily disrupted by poor dietary habits, nutritional deficiencies, lifestyle, stress, illness or medications. Under these conditions undesirable organisms such as the Candida albicans fungus can overwhelm our protective native bacteria, leaving the small and large intestine vulnerable and prone to discomfort and unpleasant symptoms.
- Caprylic acid is a natural dietary fatty acid found in coconut oil, with a history of traditional use
- Caprylic Acid Plus includes a number of other ingredients including garlic powder, oregano extract, grapefruit seed extract and green tea extract
- Garlic has a number of uses with research dating back to 1936, and long-standing traditional use in the history of natural food and herbs. NB: Although this product contains garlic, it is still suitable for those on a low FODMAPs diet. This is because the garlic is only at 70mgs per capsule and hence the level of Fermentable Oligo- Di-, Mono-saccharides and Polyols are sufficiently low not to cause any digestive discomfort. It is only when garlic and other high FODMAPs foods are ingested at levels of several grams (not mgs) that they can cause digestive discomfort in susceptible people
