When you begin your search for a candida-fighting supplement, look for one that contains a combination of Oregano, Caprylic acid, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Protease, and Cellulase.
Oregano is a powerful and all-natural antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial agent. This means that it has the ability to help your body fight a wide variety of conditions including sinusitis, fibromyalgia, and IBS as well as symptoms that cause discomfort such as joint pain, mouth sores, and stomach problems.
Lactobacillus Acidophilus (L. Acidophilus) is a form of good bacteria that helps restore the proper balance in the intestines and stomach.
Caprylic acid is a potent antifungal that strengthens the immune system’s ability to prevent candida overgrowth. Research also suggests that caprylic acid kills candida cells and restores the acidic pH of the stomach, which also makes it harder for candida to survive or multiply.
Enzymes such as Protease and Cellulase, not only break down the cell walls of candida, but also prevent candida from forming a protective outer layer that would otherwise stop the immune system from destroying them. In doing so, these enzymes enhance immune system function, but they also improve digestion, which reduces the occurrence of stomach discomfort.
