Supposedly fermented foods help break them down too. I take fermented cod liver oil and it works against biofilms supposedly as well.
Check out this post about it:
That is correct. Prof. Art Ayers recommends some substances to disrupt Biofilms in his Cooling Inflammation Blog. I have posted in his blog in the past asking him about candida albicans biofilms, even emailed him about this topic. The problem is that candida albicans biofilm matrix is composed by different substances than bacterial biofilms. The protocol to disrupt them isn’t the same. Candida Albicans Biofilm Matrix is mostly glucose. In bacterial biofilms, the matrix is mostly magnesium, calcium, and iron that justify using EDTA and Lactoferrin.
The reason because I have expeculated that SF-722 and Royal Jelly could be useful in the candida case is because there is a fatty acid of a bacterial origin called cis-2-decenoic acid that is proved to disrupt candida albicans biofilms by science. SF-722 is undecenoic acid, and Royal Jelly contains 2 decenoic acid. The 3 are very similar short chain fatty acids

See in this study candida albicans biofilm matrix composition and how glucose is the main ingredient.
