(I) have been taking 200 billion in the early morning before a meal. I have also started with the oil pulling….this has really made a big improvement on the “white tongue” issue. I started the oil pulling on monday, just 1x a day and by today I can say it has improved by 50%.!
I am quite pleased with that! Would you recommend another round of high dose after this bottle….it sure goes quickly…I think I may have a couple days left in this bottle!

As the research paper says, ethyl acetate and acetone are both extracts of the Stevia leaf (which is where the sweetener comes from). Ethyl acetate is derived from acetic acid which as we know is dangerous for Candida (simply because it’s an acid). Acetone is an alpha carbon which is quite acidic, again, acid kills Candida.
In addition to the plain Stevia extract being a good antifungal, at least one of the pure Stevia extract forms also contains organic inulin (FOS) which feeds the beneficial bacteria (flora) in the human digestive system; a big plus to look for these in the ingredients. The brand I use is the Certified Organic NOW brand. Some if not all of the Vitamin Shoppe chain stores carry this.
As far as the probiotic is concerned, I would definitely recommend another round. This is something that you will need to take through the entire treatment, and then continue it at lower doses indefinitely. Anyone who has once had the Candida albicans infestation will always be susceptible to acquiring it again. You will probably be able to replace the probiotic for the most part with lots of kefir and organic yogurt in time once you are 100% healed.
