Caprylex

Support for Intestinal Health

DESCRIPTION
Caprylex provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a dietary supplement of well-tolerated, non-phenolic complex of pure caprylic acid (octanoic acid). Each tablet provides 400 mg of a buffered calcium- magnesium caprylate complex, equivalent to 300 mg of caprylic acid. Caprylex is specially formulated to provide timed, controlled release of caprylic acid throughout the small and large intestine.

Caprylex is a well-tolerated non-phenolic natural health product containing calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and caprylic acid. Calcium and magnesium are essential minerals to the body as they are involved in many metabolic processes and make up a significant component of the skeletal system. Calcium is involved in the development and maintenance of bones and also helps maintain good health, as it is required for proper cellular signaling. Magnesium aids digestion as it helps to metabolize the major macronutrients, including carbohydrates, fats and proteins, provided as part of a regular diet. Magnesium aids in the development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth and gums while helping to maintain proper muscle function.

Caprylex is specially formulated to provide timed, controlled release of caprylic acid throughout the small and large intestine. Caprylic acid is a medium chain fatty acid that can be found in dairy products and oils such as palm and coconut. Medium chain fatty acids have unique physical and metabolic properties that allow them to be quickly absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract.

FUNCTIONS
In healthy people, the intestinal microflora consists of balanced amounts of symbiotic microorganisms, providing nutritional benefits to the host. This balance depends on our dietary habits and can easily be disturbed by unhealthy diets or drugs, such as antibiotics and oral contraceptives. Under these conditions, opportunistic pathogenic microorganisms, such as the fungus Candida albicans, can colonize the small and large intestine.
Caprylic acid, commonly found in foods (coconut oil, milk fat, etc.), is a natural dietary fatty acid which helps maintain a normal intestinal microflora. Studies have shown that dietary caprylic acid helps inhibit the growth of Candida albicans and other opportunistic fungi in both the small and large intestine. At the same time, caprylic acid does not adversely affect the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria.

INDICATIONS
Caprylex tablets may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support a normal microecology of the intestinal microflora.
