As an almost 40 year old female, I want to make sure I am taking the right vitamins and especially as I embard on the easier option of the cleanse. What vitamins should I be taking in addition to doing the cleanse? I hear about so many things women should be taking but am not sure what is right.
Thanks!January 4, 2012 at 8:21 am #70065

Hello, and welcome to the forum.
We do not recommend taking most vitamins during the detox period because most of them require food in order to break down and be absorbed by the body.
Below are the most important supplements to take during the Candida treatment.
The first two, Molybdenum and vitamin C can be taken as soon or before you start the detox period. These can be taken with or without food since they are water soluble.
Molybdenum (mineral) Take one 250 mcg pill a day, after a few days you can move up to 3 pills a day with or without meals for as long as you experience the die-off period.
Vitamin C: 1000 mg taken three times a day… or more, up to 5,000 mg a day).
These can be purchased at almost any pharmacy cheaper than online.
The remaining should be taken after completing the detox.
Calcium: 1000 mg or 100% daily value
Magnesium: 400 mg or 100$ daily value
Zinc: 15-25 mg or 100-167% daily value
These can usually be purchased together in one pill. Usually the amounts in one pill mean that you need 3-a day each one after a meal.
Vitamin D3 & Vitamin A (Vitamin A gel pills sometimes contain Vitamin D as well, this is fine to take but you will also need a Vitamin D3 supplement. Research has show that D3 is essential to healing a Candida infestation. In fact, a lot of research studies lean towards a deficiency of vitamin D3 being part of the cause of a Candida albicans overgrowth. Take at least 5000 to 10,000 units a day only in gel form for at least a few weeks, then you can continue 5000 units a day. These should always be taken after a meal containing fat and or oil.
Vitamin A: 5000 to 10,000 IU or units a day.
Always take this after a meal containing oil and or fat.
You can take all of the above or how every many you want to or can afford. However …
DO NOT take A or D unless you can take both as they depend on each other for absorption.
Biotin: 1000 mg a day for four days with food, then 2 a day morning and evening after meals.
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). In studies, the majority of Candida sufferers who are tested show a deficiency of Biotin.
Vitamin E: 200 to 400 IU or units a day taken after a good meal containing some form of oil or grease. Research has shown that Candida albicans causes vitamin E depletion. A deficiency can cause liver, bone marrow, muscle, and brain function abnormalities as well as anemia and cataracts.
Digestive Swedish Bitters (alcohol-free) would be a benefit to both the health of the liver as well as the digestive process, but should be taken after a good meal. Be sure to purchase without alcohol or ethanol.
Since the principle of digestive bitters is to stimulate the bitter receptors on the tongue, you only need to taste the bitterness of the herbs in order for them to function; therefore 1/2 of a dropper full or 1/2 of a teaspoon dropped onto the middle to back of the tongue after a meal will be enough to do the job; this is regardless of what the label may say. No matter what you read from here on out, you will not need to purchase additional enzymes as long as you use the bitters. Remember that you’ll need to take them before or immediately following a meal – followed by plenty of water.
A good herb to use which will feed the beneficial bacteria is yucca you can get this in capsule form from Amazon. Follow label directions for amounts and take with food.
