Candida Support (formerly known as Candida Clear) is a good quality antifungal that you can use to start your fight against Candida overgrowth. Rather than containing a single herbal extract, it actually delivers 6 different natural antifungals into your intestinal tract, where they can start doing the hard work of killing yeast cells and beating your Candida infestation.
This is a great product to use as part of your Candida treatment, in combination with a course of good probiotics and a strict anti-Candida diet. You can start taking antifungals like Candida Support as soon as you finish your cleanse and begin the strict anti-Candida diet.
You can buy Candida Support at the Candida Store. A pack of 180 capsules should last for around 6 weeks.
What does Candida Support contain?
Candida Support contains a number of different antifungals and other substances that support your internal systems in the fight against Candida overgrowth. Here is a brief summary of the major ingredients.
Candida Support contains a variety of good antifungals that will help to weaken your Candida overgrowth. Antifungals work by interfering with the cell walls of the yeast cells. Here is the list of antifungals that Candida Support contains:
Candida Support offers good value for those seeking an economical way to take antifungals. Buying Candida Support costs significantly less than purchasing each of the underlying ingredients separately, and it contains a good variety of antifungals to prevent your Candida developing immunity to a single type.
One criticism of Candida Support is that it only contains small amounts of each of these ingredients, but in my view this is outweighed by the benefits of taking such a broad variety of antifungal herbs.
Cat’s Claw contains alkaloids that strengthen your white blood cells, allowing them to attack pathogens such as the Candida fungus, as well as other viruses and bacteria. Cat’s Claw also has antioxidant properties that combat free radicals in your bloodstream, and has a detoxifying effect on the intestinal tract.
Candida sufferers are often deficient in magnesium. This is because the Candida yeast interferes with the way that magnesium is taken up in your intestine. A deficiency in magnesium can result in fatigue, immune disorders, leg cramps, headaches, low energy and fibromyalgia.
Biotin is found in many foods, but Candida sufferers are frequently found to have deficiencies in this important vitamin. This happens for two main reasons. Firstly, one of the body’s major sources of Biotin is actually your intestinal flora. The friendly bacteria in your gut synthesize biotin and release it into your bloodstream. Secondly, deficiency in Biotin (otherwise known as vitamin B7) can also be caused by a course of broad spectrum antibiotics, which is of course a common cause of Candida overgrowth too.
Biotin deficiency can lead to skin rashes, hair loss, depression and lethargy, among other symptoms. It is particularly important for Candida sufferers because it prevents the Candida yeast cells from converting into the pathogenic, fungal form.
Why should you take antifungals for your Candida overgrowth?
Antifungals are a vital tool in your fight against Candida alongside probiotics and a strict anti-Candida diet. There are many different types of antifungal, but most work by damaging the cell wall of the fungus cell, causing it to die. Unfortunately, the similarity between human cells and fungus cells means that prescription antifungals tend to have nasty side effects. Thankfully there is a wide range of natural, herbal antifungals that are excellent alternatives.
