I regularly take caprylic acid in the form of calcium caprylate but this gives me stomach cramps. I switched to MCT oil and it seems to work well too without the cramping. I see in a study that salty fatty acids are as effective as free fatty acids but it's really heavy on pH and Candida dysbiosis seems to prefer alkaline environment. So for the calcium or magnesium caprylate to work maybe you must ensure to mix with betaine hcl?
And what do you think of capric acid (present in MCT too)? I see more studies showing capric acid as a Candida killer than caprylic. Capric acid seems to inhibit Candida adhesion and hence biofilm formation but on mature biofilm I don't know. I didn't see anyone who sells in their supplement calcium caproate etc. Do you known why?
