Candida albicans is a yeast-like fungus that normally lives in healthy balance in the body. It is found mostly in the intestines, genital tract, mouth and throat. When the balance is upset, overgrowth results. This occurs mostly with the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics that destroy the healthy micro-flora and a weakened immune system from long-standing illness, stress, lack of sleep, smoking and alcohol. Another key contributor is poor nutrition from either a diet low in fiber and whole foods and high in processed carbohydrates and refined sugar or a lack of assimilation of nutrients due to improper digestion. Sugars and refined carbohydrates are the food of choice for candida, allowing it to proliferate. The result of all this chaos is the transformation of healthy, pro-biotic rich, nutrients absorbing colon to a tube of encrusted fecal matter and mucus, teeming with Candida. The condition of such a colon inhibits proper assimilation, encourages overgrowth of yeast and infection, and can lead to a plethora of other problems and symptoms.Candidiasis may travel to all parts of the body through the bloodstream. It affects both women and men. In the mouth, it is called thrush; in the vagina, it is called vaginitis (yeast infection).In the past, the only hope for someone with Candida was to go on strict, eliminating diets and to take large amounts of very powerful antifungals. While sometimes effective, the process could be uncomfortable and create a lot of die-off in the body. The die-off reaction occurs when the yeast cell is destroyed, allowing the 70+ known toxins in the cell to circulate throughout the body. Die-off is likened to feeling as if you had the flu and is quite uncomfortable.Enzymedica has formulated a product which is easy to adhere to and has brought many people success and renewed health. Candidase works by using the enzyme cellulase in breaking down the outer layer of the single celled candida organism. This layer is called chitin and is a polysaccharides similar to fiber. The cellulase enzymes in the product digest this outer layer, and in turn the cell dies. When the dead cell releases its toxins, the protease enzymes in the product break them down. In this manner, no die-off reaction occurs because the toxins are not allowed to circulate throughout the body. In addition, any build-up of fiber in the colon is broken-down and eliminated. Fiber can protect the yeast like a tent and create gas and bloating. Most people do best when they use Candidase for two weeks, while some may need to remain on a maintenance dose after the two weeks to prevent flair-ups.Make sure you take a high potency probiotic every day. This helps your immune system and helps prevent opportunistic organisms from growing in the GI tract.Buy now
