Caprylic acid, or octanoic acid, comes in the form of an oily liquid and is used for its antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties. The best way to get the benefits of this fatty acid is by eating foods rich in caprylic acid: certain types of milk such as full fat cow's milk, coconut, coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and peanut butter. From its natural immune boosting abilities to its cardiovascular benefits, the health benefits of caprylic acid make it well worth adding to your diet.

1. Promotes Urinary Tract Health

Caprylic acid's antibacterial properties help fight the bacteria responsible for urinary tract and bladder infections. A urinary tract infection afflicts the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Research shows caprylic acid can tackle other urinary tract problems as well, such as Candida albicans, Helicobacter pylori, and Cytomegalovirus. Drinking full fat cow's milk and consuming coconuts or coconut oil will protect against these ailments.
