Hi Jorge – I’m confused as I thought all forms of yeast were off limits when fighting candida? What makes Bakers Yeast ok for thrush? And how would I take it?

Oral candidiasis is a fungal disease caused by Candida albicans. Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a
probiotic often used as dietary supplements and in food preparation. In this study, we explored the
treatment modality of S. cerevisiae on oral candidiasis in 15 patients belonging to verum group (n = 10)
and placebo group (n = 5). All 10 patients in verum group have recovered from the oral candidiasis in 2
to 3 days whereas in the placebo group, it was a minimum of 12 days. Two patients from the verum
group did not respond to antifungal treatment with miconazole but recovered within 3 days of S.
cerevisiae treatment.
