Candida albicans has lots of sneaky ways to evade your immune system. One example is the protective matrix that it builds around its colonies. This matrix, known as a biofilm, protects the colonies from your immune system and allows the Candida to thrive.
Systemic enzymes are a very useful tool that you can use to break down those biofilms. Lumbrokinase is the most researched and generally considered the most effective. You can take one or more of these enzymes when you start taking antifungals.
SerraDefend by Balance ONE
There are a number of systemic and digestive enzymes that have biofilm-busting capabilities. It’s not easy to take them all together, which is why Lisa worked with Balance One to develop a formula that contains them all in one package.
Here are a few key characteristics of SerraDefend:
- Serrapeptase and Nattokinase: two natural, systemic enzymes to fight biofilms and reduce inflammation.
- Chitosanase: a digestive enzyme with the ability to break down yeast cell walls.
- Beta-glucanase: a digestive enzyme with proven ability to break down Candida biofilms.
- Five more digestive enzymes to promote healthy digestion: Protease, Cellulase, Hemicellulase, Amylase, Glucoamylase.
You can find SerraDefend on the Balance ONE website.
Serrapeptase by Doctor’s Best
This enzyme is derived from the silkworm and, just like the other systemic enzymes, is used to eliminate biofilms created by pathogens like Candida albicans.
Nattokinase by Doctor’s Best
Nattokinase is a single enzyme, derived from Japanese fermented soy beans, that works to disrupt pathogenic biofilms.
Lumbrokinase by Doctor’s Best
This group of six enzymes, derived from earthworms, is able to metabolize and digest the biofilms that Candida albicans builds to protect and grow its colonies.
