What is Candicid Forte for?
Candicid Forte promotes healthy gastrointestinal (GI) flora with its unique blend of nutrients, botanicals, and essential oils. These include:
Biotin: This vitamin has properties that control fungal overgrowth by preventing yeast from becoming aggressive.
Sodium Caprylate: It helps in stopping Candida, a genus of yeasts, from budding, and makes the GI environment less conducive for yeast colonization.
Potent Botanicals: Candicid Forte contains plant-based ingredients that serve as antioxidants and agents for microbial balance:
- Berberine HCl
- Pau d’Arco
What affects our Gastrointestinal Health?
A stressful, unhealthy lifestyle affects your gastrointestinal health. Dr. Smith stressed one aspect of your lifestyle that highly contributes to poor GI function: diet.
"At the heart of most chronic illnesses are digestive tract problems—leaky gut, too much bacteria, too many fungi," said Dr. Smith.
"We need some way to control all this. [But], our diet promotes this. There's too much sugar in our diet, too many highly refined carbohydrates. So, we tend to have this overgrowth and fungal infection."
Microbial imbalance and fungal overgrowth lead to infection, which in turn, causes other complications.
"They damage the wall of the bowel. We get what's called a leaky gut when the bacteria start getting into our bloodstream. Our immune system gets all riled up," he explained.
Importance of GI Health!
A huge chunk of your immune system resides in your gut, making it very important to fight diseases. According to a study, the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) represents almost 70% of the entire immune system and about 80% of plasma cells also stay in GALT.
How do you maintain GI Health?
Eating healthy is one important way to maintain your GI health, and you can do this by reducing your intake of refined sugars and carbohydrates. Adding more fiber to your meals may help, too. Aside from improving your diet, you may also include a dietary supplement like Candicid Forte.
"One of the things you can do to keep yourself healthy is to keep that intestinal barrier intact. And, you do that by reducing the number of bacteria and fungal elements in your GI tract," said Dr. Smith.
"Now Candicid Forte is designed to do [these] things. It has several antifungals in it and several antibacterials. So, it's a good way just to maintain healthy flora and keep the fungal load down. It's not a probiotic. It's just more of a maintenance product that you take to keep these infections from occurring."
The other things you can do to maintain a healthy gut include:
- Reducing stress
- Getting enough sleep
- Maintaining a healthy body weight
- Staying active
- Avoiding tobacco
