Ya Dr. Mcoombs doesn’t recommend it in his popular candida plan because it causes an immune response, your body thinks its sugar and produces mucuous which protects the candida.
The main thing I notice with it is it causes me to crave things after I eat it.
I would try out xylitol as an alternative.
There is also a few different forms of it…the liquid, the stronger powder extract, and the weaker extract with inulin. Additionally you can grow it in your garden and pick off the leaves and use the leaves instead.
