This supplement is a safe and effective supplement for the normalization of the microbial ecology of the intestines in mild to moderate cases of candida infection. It is particularly useful because of its gentle action which in most cases does not provoke strong yeast die-off reactions. The active principle in this product, the type of acid in this supplement is derived from castor bean oil is non-toxic and markedly more potent as a yeast fighter than caprylic acid and many of the other commonly available plant-derived anti-candida agents.
It is essential to make dietary changes that will starve the yeast organisms in the gut. Since the large numbers of friendly and unfriendly micro-organism that reside in our intestines compete for space, it behooves us to feed the friendly and starve the harmful micro-organisms. This is accomplished by avoiding all sugar containing foods (this includes fruit and fruit juices, honey, corn sweeteners, etc.) all refined carbohydrates (white flour products such as most breads, bagels and pastas), avoiding most fermented and yeast containing foods (best to avoid bread altogether), and focusing on eating non starchy vegetables, animal protein such as fish and organically raised beef, chicken and lamb and only small amounts of brown rice as a source of starch. Be sure to consume as much raw garlic (preferably with purple skin) organically grown parsley and uncooked high-quality olive oil as you can tolerate.
Use of Friendly Bacteria
It is strongly advisable to use a high grade and resilient strain of lactobacillus supplement with LS bacteria like this one, https://healingsolutionshealth.com/products/candida-cleanse-probiotic which unlike other strains of lactic acid bacteria is resistant to stomach acid and does not require refrigeration. Should you choose a supplement containing different strains such as acidophilus of Bifidus, be sure to take it on an empty stomach and at least one hour before eating to ensure its viability while passing through the stomach.
Optimal gastrointestinal tract functioning is vital to the absorption of nutrients, elimination of waste, and proper immune function. Gut function and especially good gut ecology – maintaining a healthy balance of gut flora, the microorganisms that normally live in the digestive tract are a key component to overall health. Many situations can contribute to an imbalance in the microbial flora of the digestive tract, including an unhealthy diet, inadequate digestive enzymes, oral contraceptives, and the use of various prescription and OTC drugs. Increasing recognition is also being given in women's health to the relationship between gut flora and vaginal flora; i.e., a healthy balance of gut flora has the corresponding benefit to the vaginal flora. Fatty acids have been used for centuries to help maintain a healthy balance of the microorganisms that normally live in the gastrointestinal tract.* In the last 50 years, fatty acids have demonstrated effectiveness in supporting a healthy gut flora in a number of studies. The type of acid in this supplement is an eleven-carbon, mono-unsaturated fatty acid occurring naturally in the body's perspiration. While several fatty acids have beneficial effects on the flora that naturally inhabit the gastrointestinal tract, undecylenic acid is the most potent. This formula contains an acid in a base of pure, extra-virgin olive oil and aids in the establishment of healthy gut and vaginal flora
