I spent some time reading that ‘Life on the edge’ link you posted, where it talks about beta glucanase and how it can break down the walls of candida biofilms. A google search on beta glucanase supplements yielded this page:
The above page talks about candida quite a bit, and there is a product at the bottom (VeganZyme) that contains beta glucanase, as well as protease and other enzymes. The web site sells it directly. I see that Amazon also sells it, but for a little more.
What do you guys think about this VeganZyme? I think I may have to give it a try…
Apart from the rice flour, which would be negligible anyway, it looks like a great product. Cellulase is mentioned in one of those articles as being important for breaking down the biofilm’s structure. A lot of those other enzymes break down fibrin. Nattokinase is mentioned as being especially effective for biofilms.
VeganZyme could be just the kind of enzyme blend the ‘Life on the edge article’ mentioned. I wouldn’t begin using it until you’ve got an overall plan for attacking the biofilms though. I don’t think any one of these things will get results, but together as part of a protocol including anti-fungals they could be very effective. The slideshow seems to have the most details, so let me know what you think after you read it.
