Usually vitamin A can D, can be purchased together. Don’t take one without the other as they depend on each other.
Take vitamin A at 10,000 units a day and D at 400 units in gel-form only (meaning not tablets).
I’m adding this one:
Vitamin D3: Research has show that D3 is essential to healing a Candida infestation. In fact, a lot of research papers lean towards a deficiency of vitamin D3 being a cause of Candida albicans overgrowth. Take at least 2000 to 10,000 units a day only in capsule form.
Biotin- Normally, in addition to being in some of the food we eat, biotin is formed by beneficial bacteria in the system. But Candida sufferers are habitually deficient in beneficial bacteria (otherwise it’s doubtful that they would have contracted Candida), so they’re usually deficient in Biotin as well. Also, the majority of Candida sufferers who were tested showed a deficiency of Biotin.
Biotin is a good addition to any Candida treatment as it negatively affects Candida because of its ability to prevent yeast from converting into its pathogenic or fungal form. Biotin does this by interfering with the growth of the Candida.
A good dosage for a Candida treatment is to work your way up to about 6000 mcg a day taken at intervals.
MSM – MSM is a natural occurring sulfur compound. However, commercially sold “MSM” is synthetic and produced by heating an industrial solvent called dimethylsulfoxide; the heat coverts it into what is commercially referred to as “MSM.”
Personally, I prefer the natural sulfur which can be obtained by consuming onions, watercress, peppers, garlic, nettle leaf herb or tea. Another source is sulfur-based amino acids which are found in eggs, onions, garlic, and fresh unprocessed meats. Take MSM according to the label.
Important note; taking MSM will require sufficient amounts of Molybdenum to be properly broken down in the body.
Vitamin C: Work up to 3000 mg a day in 1000 mg doses.
Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc:
Just a caution, no one should take calcium without magnesium, calcium alone can cause constipation, plus the two depend on each other for absorption.
You can find pills containing all three of these together.
Calcium – 1000 mg
Magnesium – 400 mg
Zinc – at least 15 to 25 mg
Multi – I don’t recommend multiple vitamins because of the incredibly incorrect ratio of vitamins they contain.
B50 – This supplement is a perfect example of what I was talking about as far as the dangerous ratios in some vitamin supplements. Just look at the percentage amounts of each B vitamin that this supplement contains:
Pantothenic Acid (as d-calcium pantothenate) 50 mg — 500%
Biotin (as Biotin trituration) 50 mcg — 17%
Vitamin B12 (as Cyanocobalamin) 50 mcg — 833%
Folic Acid 400 mcg — 100%
Niacin (as Niacin amide) 50 mg — 250%
Thiamin (as Thiamin HCl) 50 mg — 3,333%
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine HCl) 50 mg — 2500%
If someone can explain to me the advantage of taking 3,333% of the MDR of one B vitamin compared to only 17% of another (and it’s biotin, of all the vitamins to be lowest) then just Maybe I could understand the complete lack of sense this supplement makes. I totally do not recommend anyone to take this supplement as it can be dangerous and likely to produce vitamin deficiencies in anyone taking it.
SF722 – Check the label or ask Raster how much he takes. I never used this during my treatment period, nor have I researched it.
Raster had some good suggestions as well, especially the Grape (Swedish) Bitters.
