Caprylic acid is one of several medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil, and has been shown to reduce the symptoms of a fungus infection by targeting imbalances deep in the gut.
Organic virgin coconut oil is rich in the compound, which is particularly beneficial for people suffering from toenail and fingernail fungus.
Caprylic acid, or octanoic acid, acts as a broad-spectrum antifungal agent to microorganisms that can cause fungal infections on the nails. In particular, caprylic acid is an effective fungicide for dermatophytes, which are fungi that are found only on the skin and are frequently responsible for nail fungus.
Nail discoloration most commonly occurs because of an overgrowth of dermatophytes. Research suggests organic coconut oil is the best natural remedy for nail discoloration after you’ve tried all other options.
Human nails are made of the protein keratin, which is the substance that makes them hard and durable. Cracks and splits in the nail can be caused by certain types of fungi, which eat away at the keratin and damage the structure of the nail. This can also interfere with the normal nail growth cycle.
Furthermore, when the fungus eats a portion of the nail, it forces it to grow down instead of out, causing the thickening and discoloration to the nail plate which is medically referred to as onychomycosis. Subsequently, infected areas of the nail become more susceptible to new infections, which may lead to the nail plate curling underneath itself.
