Hi everyone, I am combating with candida infection too. I am trying to stick on strict diet but running out on food to eat. I have been eating eggs everyday…now I feel sick of egg. I am wondering have anyone tried Shirataki noodle or could it be added into candida diet? Shirataki noodle is made from the root of a plant (Amorphophallus Konjac) with totally a beneficial type of fiber and has no bad carbohydrates. It also helps to control blood sugar.April 21, 2017 at 6:43 pm #174071
From what i’ve read it actually reduces the sugar in your body which is a good thing for us right? If its recommended for diabetics…? I would also like to know if it’s ok because i would love to eat them too!! Also we could make some wonderful Konjac dessert jellies!!June 9, 2017 at 3:17 am #174154
And in lab dishes, GM *inhibits candida while encouraging lactobacilli* !!!! Wow! This could make a bit of konjac with meals a very easy candida treatment!
Konjac glucomannan hydrolysate (GMH) was compared with inulin and glucose for its capacity to support the growth of probiotic bacteria but inhibit the growth of Candida albicans in vitro. The growth of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) was studied under aerobic, anaerobic and 5% CO2 conditions where the GMH progressively supported the growth of LAB as a function of concentration (0.1, 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0% w/v). In mixed cultures, GMH promoted the growth of LAB (even at concentrations as low as 0.1%) and consequently increased inhibition of C. albicans under anaerobic conditions, 5% CO2 or aerobic conditions. Inhibition of C. albicans growth was generally higher than that with glucose or inulin and, of the LAB strains, Lactobacillus jensenii exhibited most inhibition of the pathogen.June 9, 2017 at 3:18 am #174155
GM is what they use for konjac… Here in Asia they call it the intestine broom.
