Pure alcohol doesn’t feed candida. Alcohol is a by product of yeast fermentation. By the way, alcohol doesn’t kill candida either, at least in low concentration. Alcohol kills bacteria.
But doesn’t alcohol turn into sugar? I am going to stop the treatment for sure, but am upset by the possibility this has set me back…because, honestly, I’d much rather be DRINKING alcohol then getting it through some useless detox kit, so blowing my diet on that is frustrating as hell.
No. Alcohol can only be broken down to CO2 and water. Where alcohol enters the metabolic pathways it can not be synthesized back to carbohydrate or fat. Alcohol can affect blood sugar level in secondary ways.
