1. Does Candida reside mostly in the small intestine or large intestine?
2. If it does reside in the large intestine, how does it survive? (since all sugars are already absorbed in small intestine).
3. If it does reside (and thrive) in the large intestine, how do the antifungals such as garlic, oregano, caprylic, coconut, rutabega reach that destination? Aren’t they digested and absorbed by then? So are these antifungals only effective in the small intestine?
Thanks for any insight.
Candida reside in the entire gastrointestinal zone. It’s present mostly in the small intestine from what i’ve red because participate in the important assimilation of the sugar via a process that helps the intestine to digest the nutrients. Normally it shouldn’t be present into the faeces and it can reside in the mouth in a very small percentage.
Anyway candida must survive for the health of your body because it is a very important citizen of your gut. The overgrowth of candida must be avoided but your goal shouldn’t be to destroy it. You just need bring it to a reasonable quantity that allow your body to live in balance with it.
