A Dietary Supplement
Candistat™, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a well-tolerated, natural dietary supplement of controlled release caprylic acid (octanoic acid) complex, Pau D'Arco herb, and other synergistic ingredients. Each tablet provides 93 mg of a calcium-magnesium caprylate complex, equivalent to 70 mg of caprylic acid. Potassium-buffered sorbic acid is added as a natural stabilizer. Candistat is free of yeast, corn, wheat, sugars, and artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Candistat tablets may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support a normal microecology of the intestinal microflora. Candistat is especially appropriate for individuals who can not tolerate higher levels of caprylate complex.
In healthy people, the intestinal microflora consists of balanced amounts of symbiotic microorganisms, providing nutritional benefits to the host. This balance depends on our dietary habits and can easily be disturbed by unhealthy diets or drugs, such as antibiotics and oral contraceptives. Under these conditions, opportunistic pathogenic microorganisms, such as the fungus Candida albicans, can colonize the small and large intestine. Caprylic acid, commonly found in foods (coconut oil, milk fat, etc.), is a natural dietary fatty acid which helps maintain a normal intestinal microflora.
Studies show that dietary caprylic acid helps inhibit the growth of Candida albicans and other opportunistic fungi in both the small and large intestine. At the same time, caprylic acid does not adversely affect the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria. Candistat provides caprylic acid as a calciummagnesium- caprylate complex. This complex is well tolerated and provides for controlled release of caprylic acid throughout the small and large intestine. As synergistic herbal ingredients, pure Pau D'Arco (Taheebo) from Argentina is added in a base of horseradish and clove concentrates.
