  • A unique fatty acid supporting healthy internal ecology



  • A favorite among athletes as a quick energy boost



  • Made famous by Dr. William Crook in his book "The Yeast Connection"


Caprylic acid was first popularized 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. 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, they deliver quick energy--more than twice that delivered by glucose.

Caprylic Acid 4.5 5 20 27
Found in milk, coconut oil, and palm. Caprylic acid is a very neat fatty acid that I has been very effective for the purposes that I have used it for; exactly what I am not allowed to post here, due to governmental regulations on medical and disease claims. What I will say, though, is that it seems to be potent, comes in a light-protective brown plastic container, and is fairly priced. I really wish I could tell you more. Look it up if you want to though! :) October 31, 2014
Noticed no difference I noticed absolutely no difference in taking these, good or bad. Convenient enough to take the gelcap, but since it didn't do anything for me, I won't be ordering again. April 18, 2014
High quality affordable supplement Best value I have found anywhere for this high quality supplement! December 19, 2013
CAPRYLIC ACID THIS PRODUCT WAS RECOMMENDED BY A FRIEND AND I AM SO GLAD I WAS TOLD ABOUT IT AS I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS. THE EFFECTIVENESS IS OUTSTANDING. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT AND AM CONTINUING USE. I AM SO HAPPY WITH THE QUICKNESS OF DELIVERY AS WELL. MY HUSBAND AND I KID WHEN WE PUT THE ORDER IN TO LOOK AND SEE IF ITS ON THE FRONT PORCH! GOOD PRODUCT-GOOD COMPANY! December 2, 2013
Great Derivative of Coconut Oil! I love, love, love Swanson Ultra Caprylic Acid! I have not been able to find this product without it having other ingredients I do not like...you just get Caprylic Acid and nothing else. I like to supplement my diet with coconut oil, and this just gives me that extra boost I need. November 27, 2013
Wonderful product This product used for some of its purposes really works well. November 13, 2013
good product, great price! I've been using this supplement for years and Swanson has the best brand at a great price. August 2, 2013

Excellent Excellent product for many applications! highly recommended. May 5, 2013
Can't live without it excellent product and price just as effective as more expensive brands i've used in the past! April 21, 2013
Essential nutrient I've ben taking this for 3 years. I think I've always ordered it from Swanson's due to the quality, effectiveness, and pricing. Highly recommended. March 4, 2013
One a day This is a great supplement. I take one a day with my morning protein drink. I love it, and will continue to use this. February 2, 2013
needs to be enteric coated for intestinal effectiveness October 11, 2012
Will buy again I take one in the morning to take me through and one in the afternoon to help get past that lull after lunch and to keep me energized to do my work out. June 17, 2011
not what i expected i do not see an increase in my energy level June 16, 2011
I think it realy helps me with my digestion. Certainly will order again August 31, 2010
No Energy Boost Buy this product because you need Caprylic Acid, not because of the claimed energy boost. I find the claim that it provides a faster energy boost than glucose to be untrue. August 28, 2010
Using Caprylic Acid Swanson's Caprylic Acid softgels are convenient and easy to use. From my own experience I find that taking them with food seems to help them work even better. August 15, 2009
Totally Awesome! This stuff is great. Taken with the Ultimate Probiotic Formula and Bioperine, I got the best energy boost from a supplement that I've ever had. I have tried nearly everything and this stuff really works. April 27, 2009
