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. At the same time, caprylic acid does not adversely affect the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria. 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.
