Caprylex™ 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.
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 healthy 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.

Use Auto Ship for Convenience and to Get a 20% Discount!
What Is Auto Ship?
Auto Ship is the most convenient and cheapest way for you to get supplements you like to regularly order. We automatically ship you a resupply of any items you want each month, or only when you want them shipped. You save 20% off our regular prices and receive free shipping within the continental U.S.
Is an Auto-Ship Discount Available on Every Product?
Some items in our store are already discounted to the absolutely lowest price that the manufacturer allows. So we cannot discount them further with auto ship. You can still order them with auto ship to get the convenience of monthly refills, but they will not receive the auto-ship price discount that many other items in our store do. You should read the "Auto Ship" tab on each item listing to see if the discount is available for that item. This item DOES provide a discount for auto-ship orders.
What If I'm Not Ready for a Re-Order?
Not a problem. It would be wasteful to refill your order if you haven't run out yet. That's why we check with you by email at least three days before shipping you a resupply. If you aren't ready for it, simply click the link in your reminder email to bring you to a simple-to-use page where you can change anything about your upcoming order — ship date, order quantity, or discontinue Auto Ship altogether.
How Do I Sign Up?
When adding an item to your cart, simply check the "Auto-Ship" option. You'll receive 20% off on your first purchase and every one after that for as long as you continue to use the program. And you can quit at any time you like. (Please note that Auto-Ship orders are always shipped to the default shipping address shown in your account.)
How Do I Change an Auto-Ship Order?
To modify an Auto-Ship order, login to your account and click the "Auto-Ship Orders" tab (or you can simply wait until you receive your Auto-Ship reminder email and click a link we provide to take you there). Below is an example screenshot of what this page will look like. Just follow the instructions shown to make whatever change you want and click the save button. It's a great way to get the supplements you want, when you want them, while saving 20% off our price!
