A microbiome of bacteria and yeast inhabits your gut, striving to maintain a harmonious balance that supports intestinal integrity and digestive health. Under ideal conditions, a yeast called Candida albicans resides as a natural part of your flora and allows friendly bacteria to defend against pathogens and boost nutrient absorption. However, factors such as medications (especially antibiotics), chronic stress, and an unhealthy diet can cause intestinal dysbiosis and lead to an overgrowth of yeast which results in a multitude of detrimental health effects.
Keeping yeast levels under control is critical to maintaining digestive, urinary, and reproductive health. When yeasts proliferate, they can cause dysfunction throughout the digestive and urinary tracts. You may suffer from gut symptoms like nausea, bloating, constipation, and diarrhea, as well as more subtle gut-brain symptoms like brain fog, fatigue, and sleep difficulty.
Yeast Therapy Alternatives
Though antifungal prescriptions can target Candida overgrowth, they possess side effect profiles that may include digestive upset and medication interactions. These drugs also cause chaos in the gut, as they do not spare beneficial microbes from destruction. In contrast, botanicals have been harnessed worldwide for centuries due to their well-tolerated healing properties. Candid-X is a plant-based blend of 10 potent, rigorously studied plant-based nutrients that may reduce unhealthy yeast levels without killing off beneficial bacteria. †
