Candidiasis is a bacterial infection of the gastrointestinal tract by the yeast Candida albicans. This bacteria is normally benign, and already lives in the gastrointestinal tract. It is kept under control by the immune system. It becomes a problem when it overgrows, usually when the immune defences are weakened due to another disease/infection.
In some cases, candida yeast burrows deeply into the lining of the stomach, damaging it and creating a syndrome called intestinal hyperpermeability. When this occurs, a person can suffer from new intolerances to previously harmless foods, such as dairy, eggs, corn, and gluten.
The main cause of development of chronic candidiasis (meaning you suffer from reccurent infection) is the overuse of antibiotics. They kill the healthy intestinal floral that contributes to keep candida under control.
When suffering from candida, you need to boost your immune system by supplementing with certain essential vitamins and minerals, if you want that it becomes strong enough to fight infection and keep candida under control. Below are a few supplements that are the most important.
Chlorella is a green algua. It is a whole-food containing a lot of different vitamins and minerals. It helps boost the immune system and also is known to detoxify heavy metals and other pesticides in the body.
Vitamin C is a booster of the immune system. It promotes the growth of antibodies, which are specialized cells of the immune system. They can detect organisms that invade the body and fight infection.
Intestinal flora is really crucuial in the health of the gastrointestinal tract, and that what probiotic is, healthy bacteria that will boost intestinal flora. A supplement of probiotics is especially useful to fight candidiasis, as it helps bring balance in the intestinal flora between good and bad bacteria. If you suffer from chronic candidiasis, supplements of probiotic and vitamin C taken together are a good way to prevent appearance.
Vitamin C: 1,000 mg / twice a day for the first week, then reduce to 1,000 mg, and eventually 500mg.Less
Description: Vitamin C is an essential nutrient well known for its vital role in immune system function. It is a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's structures from oxidative damage generated during normal metabolism. Vitamin C is also necessary for the production of collagen and is therefore important for skin, bone, and joint...
