Caprylic Acid is a naturally derived nutrient also known as octanoic acid. Caprylic acid is a medium-chain fatty acid (MCT) that is naturally found in coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and the milk of humans and some animals.

Swanson Caprylic Acid delivers 600 mg C8 caprylic acid in one easy-to-swallow softgel to support energy and metabolism. Caprylic acid is a medium-chain triglyceride (MCT), a type of lipid that is not digested in the gut, but rather in the liver, like carbohydrates. As such, it delivers quick energy—more than twice that delivered by glucose.

Caprylic acid was first popularised as a dietary supplement by Dr. William Crook, author of the famous book on internal ecology, The Yeast Connection. Today it’s widely used as a companion to other effective supplements, such as acidophilus and FOS, for healthy microbial balance. It’s also gaining popularity among athletes, who appreciate it for its quick energy.
