Caprylic Acidand Psyllium Husk

Recommended Posts

I had something weird happen today. I have never taken caprylic acid before, although I have been using coconut oil w/ no reaction. I took one pill 365mg and 4 psyllium husk pills and after maybe 5 minutes i got extremely hot and couldnt breathe for a minute and my heart rate went up really high. I drank some water after almost calling 911 and it subsided after a few minutes. It scared the Poop out of me. Has anyone had anything like this happen? I made myself throw up just to get rid of the pills and the only thing that was partially absorbed was the caprylic acid and the psyllium husks were still in tact. I guess it was the Caprylic acid. Any thoughts?

Well both of those can be kind of harsh in their own way. Caprylic acid is a pretty strong antifungal and the psyllium is very strong and bothers lots of people, but it really sounds like more like an allergic reaction.

I take caprylic acid and I've taken psyllium in the past. If I have reactions, they are usually in the gut.

i got to say i have no idea, but i thats one of those that i would tell myself "well i better not do that again" (i dont know how many times i said that though--especially to peanut butter)

sorry, i take the medical explanations as a grain of sand and just pay attention to my bodies reactions--i don't seem to do well with anything in pill form these days though
