Caprylate Plus by Douglas Laboratories is a well-tolerated, natural dietary supplement of controlled-release caprylic acid (octanoic acid) complex, Pau D’Arco herb, and other unique ingredients. Each tablet contains a sodium caprylate complex, equivalent to 70 mg caprylic acid. Potassium-buffered sorbic acid is added as a natural stabilizer.
The microbiota of the human gastrointestinal tract plays a key role in nutrition and health. Caprylic acid, commonly found in foods (coconut oil, milk fat, etc.), is a natural dietary fatty acid which supports a healthy intestinal microflora. † In vitro studies have demonstrated that caprylic acid may help to maintain a balanced level of microorganisms.
This caprylate complex is well tolerated and provides for controlled release of caprylic acid throughout the small and large intestine. As unique herbal ingredients, pure Pau D’Arco (Taheebo) is added in a base of horseradish and clove concentrates. Pau D’Arco is a botanical with active constituents that have been shown to support a healthy gastrointestinal tract.
Caprylate Plus tablets may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support a normal micro- ecology of the intestinal microflora. Caprylate Plus is especially appropriate for individuals who may not tolerate higher levels of caprylic acid.
