Candida albicans is a natural part of the body's gut flora; however, certain factors can lead to Candida overgrowth, requiring a solution to help balance candida.
Candida albicans is a yeast-like fungus. Candida is a natural part of the body's gut flora and is also present on the skin and in mucous membranes. Under normal circumstances, Candida coexists without harmful effects. However, factors such as stress, weakened immune function, a diet high in refined carbohydrates or the use of antibiotics can lead to Candida overgrowth.
• Helps the body maintain the normal balance of colonization of Candida albicans.
• Supports the immune system.
• Supports the intestinal tract.
Candida Clear is a 14-day cleansing program. Its dual-action approach consists of the Candida Clear Combo pack and the Candida Clear Enzyme pack.
The Combo pack is formulated with natural ingredients like pau d'arco, caprylic acid and oregano, which have been shown to help balance the colonization of Candida.
The Enzyme pack contains a proprietary blend of enzymes specially combined to provide support to the intestinal tract. Candida's cell wall is composed of a variety of components, including carbohydrates and proteins.
This proprietary formula is designed to break down candida's defenses. Candida cells are well-adapted to environmental extremes because of the protection afforded by their cell wall. The action of the carbohydrate and protein-digesting enzymes in the Candida Clear Enzyme pack may help discourage the colonization of Candida by disrupting the cell wall. Cellulase, hemicellulase, amylase and glucoamylase enzymes aid in breaking down its cellulose and carbohydrate components. Protease and bromelain specifically target proteins.
The Candida Clear Combo pack is a blend of ingredients specifically selected to help balance Candida levels. Black walnut hulls, pau d'arco, elecampane, garlic, echinacea, red raspberry leaves and oregano are renowned for their digestive system-cleansing properties.
Historically, black walnut hulls and pau d'arco have been relied upon for multiple fungal concerns.
Studies have shown that elecampane helps maintain an optimal balance of gut flora, and has specific activity against candida.
In addition to immune system support, echinacea and garlic have been shown to inhibit the activity of multiple fungal species, including candida.
Red raspberry leaves have a long history of traditional use and were frequently employed for bowel complaints.
Oregano is an aromatic herb commonly used to flavor foods. Carvacrol, an active constituent present in oregano, helps to promote balance within the digestive system.
Caprylic acid, sorbic acid and sodium propionate have demonstrated efficacy in addressing fungal concerns. These natural substances may disrupt the integrity of fungal cells and inhibit their function.
Several components of the Candida Clear Combo pack also help support immune system health. Echinacea, garlic, zinc and selenium may boost the body's defense mechanisms. These ingredients are important in protecting against free radical damage and in the function of immune cells.
The Candida Clear program consists of two different packets. The Candida Clear Combo cellophane packet contains two Pau d' Arco capsules, two Caprylic Acid capsules and two Yeast/Fungal Detox capsules. The Candida Clear Enzyme cellophane packet contains two capsules of our proprietary carbohydrolytic and proteolytic enzyme blend.
