Candida Fast Capsules contain:
Echinacea. It supports your immune system in the fight against candida as well as other infections.
Sodium Caprylate. A fatty acid, which occurs naturally in coconuts. It does not adversely affect beneficial organisms. It is fat-soluble, so will penetrate cell membranes. It survives digestive processes and is able to reach the colon. Caprylic acid (Sodium Caprylate) is often used in the nutritional world in order to combat overgrowth of yeast and fungi in the colon,especially the growth of Candida albicans. This is a fatty acid with 8 carbon atoms. It is produced by the body in small amounts, and is mainly found in coconut, but also in palm oil, hempseed oil, butter and other animal and vegetable sources. The fungicidal effect of caprylic acid has been proven in both in-vitro and in-vivo studies. In the pH area between 2.5 and 8.5, caprylic acid has been found to have a strong fungicidal effect on yeasts, particularly Candida albicans. The in-vivo results date back to the 1960s.
AMLA (Indian Gooseberry). Gooseberry has known antifungal properties, which is why it is great against candida infections. Also, candida infections occur more in diabetic patients. This is because the high sugar content in the body supports the growth of fungi such as candida. As gooseberries help control diabetes, they will indirectly suppress the growth of this type of fungi.
Burdock Root. Burdock is an anti-fungal and has been used effectively against candida for many years. It’s also used to purify the bloodstream and internal organs of toxins.
Zinc AAC. Candida is killed by metallothionein (MT) proteins which are normally in high concentration in intestinal mucosa. MT is induced by zinc. Many persons with candida are low zinc and low MT persons. They usually exhibit low zinc in plasma, serum, or packed cells, but high zinc in hair.
Oregano. Oregano has two microbial chemicals that actually dehydrate all varieties of fungi and yeasts without harming good bacteria.
