    Hello.

    Does anyone have links to scientific research on how household mold affects Candida?

    Thank you.

    From “Carbohydrate Research” April 1989

    Structural analysis of phospho-D-mannan-protein complexes isolated from yeast and mold form cells of Candida albicans NIH A-207 serotype a strain

    “The immunochemical properties between phospho-d-mannan-protein complexes of yeast (Y) and mycelial (M) forms of Candida albicans NIH A-207 (serotype A) strain were compared. Hydrolysis of the Y-form complex gave a mixture of β-(1→2)-linked d-mannooligosaccharides consisting mainly of tri- and tetra-ose, whereas the M-form complex gave preponderantly d-mannose. The antiserum against Y-form cells exhibited a lower reactivity with the M-form than with the Y-form complex, whereas the antiserum to M-form cells could not distinguish significantly between both complexes. Moreover, these acid-modified complexes showed lower antibody-precipitating effect than each corresponding intact complex against antisera of Y- and M-form cells. Digestion of the acid-modified Y- and M-form complexes with the Arthrobacter GJM-1 strain α-d-mannosidase yielded 35- and 40-% degradation products, respectively. Acetolysis of each modified complex under mild conditions gave the same d-mannohexaose, β-d-Manp-(1→2)-β-d-Manp-(1→2)-α-d-Manp-(1→2)-α-d-Manp-(1→2)-α-d-Manp-(1→2)-d-Man. Because the complexes of Y- and M-form cells of C. albicans NIH B-792 (serotype B) strain did not give any hexaose fraction containing β-(1→2) linkages, the presence of this hexaose can be regarded as one of the dominant characteristics of the serotype-A specificity of C. albicans spp.”

    The easiest way to understand the connection between Candida and mold is to remember that mold is actually a type of fungus, and Candida albicans is of course a fungus as well. As you see from the statements above, Candida albicans contains mold cells.

    Mold is part of the reason I am here, I had some in my bathroom and it spread throughout my apartment when I was out of work for 2 years and I ate a poor diet on top of it.

    Thanks for your replies, guys. Sorry I just saw this and am responding late.

    I lived in a very moldy house for several years — much longer than I wanted to. Long story, but I think the house mold was also a primary reason for my Candida overgrowth. That’s when I began eating lots of white bread and flour-products, sugar, and deserts to satisfy these completely out-of-control cravings. The only reason I didn’t become overweight is because I train so much.

    It would also explain why the die-off symptoms were so severe in my lungs — must’ve been breathing in mold all that time.

    Thanks again!!
