Sugar alcohols aren’t a growth factor with candida but be cautious with its possible effect of causing cravings or toying with insulin factors. Sugar alcohols have caused me to be slightly lethargic in the past coupled with cravings. To some degree I think sugar alcohols trick the body into thinking that sugar is coming into the body when it really isn’t. So in response the body lowers insulin levels in anticipation of sugar coming in. Lower insulin can result in feeling somewhat lethargic. Lower insulin can cause sugar cravings.
