What Is Candida?
Candida Albicans is a single celled fungal yeast. Among the most prolific organisms on the planet, it is impossible to keep it out of your body. In a healthy person, it does little harm because its population is kept in check by beneficial microorganisms (probiotics) which are, however, easily destroyed by antibiotics, many prescription medications, birth control pills, poor diet, and daily stress. This can then cause the Candida yeast to grow out of control, producing chemicals that are toxic to the body. Yeast overgrowth is thought to affect over 40 million Americans, both men and women, and is especially prevalent in hyperactive children and those with ADD and ADHD.
A Word on Diet
The powerful ingredients in Fungal Defense are specifically targeted to destroy yeast and other fungi and to restore a balanced, healthy internal environment. To prevent re-infection and to maintain a properly balanced system, it is critical to reduce, or in some cases, eliminate the intake of the following foods: sweets, carbohydrates (such as bread, pasta, muffins, glutenous grains, etc), alcohol, vinegar, fruits, and aged cheeses - as these foods (especially sugars and carbohydrates) feed the yeast which thrive in sugary environments and actually cause you to crave these very foods.
Powerful Anti-Fungal Compounds
HSOsT and Their Probiotic Function:
We usually have a balance of approximately 85% good to 15% harmful organisms in the intestinal tract but most of us today have the opposite ratio. Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSOs) are highly
stable beneficial probiotic microorganisms. Impervious to stomach acids, they crowd out pathogens, eliminating yeast, fungi and bad bacteria from the intestines.
The Enzyme Connection:
Candida research favorably supports the indespensible role of specific enzymes and their ability to literally digest Candida cell walls. The Fungal DefenseT formula utilizes potent amounts of both cellulase and protease. Cellulase breaks down fibrous carbohydrates while protease hydrolyzes (digests) protein. These two enzymes help to dissolve the cell wall of yeast and other fungi.
Wild Oregano and Olive Leaf Extracts:
Fungal DefenseT contains the most powerful anti-fungal substances found in nature. Wild Oregano and Olive Leaf Extracts are recognized for their potent anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-parasitic properties. Their primary fungicidal components work synergistically to help eliminate yeast and fungus on contact.
Garlic and Yucca Juice Extracts:
Known as Russian penicillin, Garlic is considered to be nature's premier antibiotic and anti-fungal. It is effective against bacteria and yeast that may be resistant to antimicrobial medications yet does not destroy the body's normal, friendly flora.
A potent blood purifier, the juice from the Yucca root found predominantly
in the desert Southwest aids in digestion and produces surfactants which
help to breakdown the lipid envelope that coats certain viruses and fungi
