Toxic as in they inhibit/kill it. I was referring to this study that concluded:
Certain marine PUFAs, especially 18:4 n-3, 20:5 n-3 and 22:5 n-3, have an inhibitory effect on the mitochondrial activity of both C. albicans and C. dubliniensis biofilms and significantly inhibited biofilm biomass of C. dubliniensis. These marine PUFAs also affected cellular morphology of biofilms of both species. This may be due to increased oxidative stress as a result of incorporation of PUFAs into the cellular lipids. These findings suggest that marine PUFAs may be useful in the treatment and/or prevention of Candida biofilms, which are known to have increased antifungal resistance compared to free-living cells.
Anyway, I’m glad to hear you’re positive about the treatment. I hope your symptoms die down soon. Good luck!
