CAPRIC ACID (Medium-chain fatty acid)
Capric acid, together with lauric acid and caprylic acid two other medium-chain fatty acids, help to increase levels of high-density lipoproteins (HDL cholesterol) relative to low-density lipoproteins (LDL cholesterol). Breast feeding mothers who consume pure virgin coconut oil have high levels of these healthy fatty acids in their milk which is of great benefit to the infant because it protects them from infections and toxins. Capric acid is
also very useful for treating viral infections.
