Douglas Laboratories Caprylex
Caprylex™, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a dietary supplement of well-tolerated, non-phenolic complex of pure caprylic acid (octanoic acid).* Caprylex is specially formulated to provide timed, controlled release of caprylic acid throughout the small and large intestine.
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.
- Attempts to inhibit the growth of Candida albicans and other opportunistic fungi in both the small and large intestine.*
- May help maintain a normal intestinal microflora*
Caprylex tablets may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support a normal microecology of the intestinal microflora.*
Adults take two tablets daily on an empty stomach at least one half hour before meals, or as directed by a health care professional.*
Gastrointestinal side effects may occur.*
Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light. Keep out of reach of children.
