Caprylic-Acid: It sanitizes dairy equipment and it can sanitize you.
Caprylic acid (aka “octanoic acid”) is a short-chain fatty acid that is produced in the body. It is also found in coconut
oil, palm nut oil, milk, butter fat and other vegetable and animal sources.
Caprylic acid’s physical properties and lack of toxicity make
it useful for many industrial and medical purposes, mostly pertaining
to cleanliness and bacterial contamination. As a supplement it
has the following applications:
inhibiting the growth of fungi, especially the yeast-like fungus Candida albicans, the organism responsible for candidiasis
treatment of bacterial infections, such as Staphylococcus aureus and various species of Streptococcus.
destruction of cancer tumors
reduction of blood pressure.
Customary dosages range from 300 to 1200 mg/day.

Caprylic acid is an 8-carbon fatty acid that is produced in the body, and is a component of coconut oil, palm nut oil, butter
fat and other vegetable and animal sources.
Caprylic acid is commonly used to inhibit the growth of fungi, especially the yeast-like fungus Candida albicans,
the organism responsible for candidiasis (‘yeast infection’). Many
apparently healthy men and women have some Candida in their
gastrointestinal tract, but it is usually kept in check by
Lactobacillus bacteria. When this check fails, the result can be acid
stomach, abdominal pain, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, itching,
or symptoms of intoxication.
Caprylic acid has antitumor activity. In a 1991 experiment with rats, an 8-day treatment with caprylic acid obliterated liver
tumors without affecting normal tissue.
Caprylic acid can affect blood pressure. A supplement high in caprylic acid reduced diastolic blood pressure in volunteers
with normal blood pressure; it remains to be studied in people with hypertension.
Customary dosages range from 300 to 1200 mg/day. No anti-tumor dosage has been established for humans — 300 mg/day was used
