The microbiome in your gut is home to trillions of healthy probiotics, as well as some not-so-healthy bacteria, Candida yeasts, and so on. For good health, you need enough of the healthy probiotics to balance out the others. Candex™ supports this balance with specifically targeted, high potency enzymes that break down the substances that comprise the cell walls of yeast.*
- Feel better in 10 days or less*
- Little to no “die-off” reaction
- No major dietary restrictions
- Safe for children and pets
- (use one-half capsule per 40 pounds of body weight)
What is Candida?
Candida albicans is a fungal yeast that is literally everywhere. In other words, you can’t keep it out of your body. If you have unhealthy levels, it can trigger a host of complaints, like localized (primarily vaginal or rectal) itching, depression, irritability, dizziness, unclear thinking, difficulty focusing, brain fog, fatigue, gas, bloating, diarrhea or constipation, rapid weight loss or gain, flatulence, and cravings for sweets or alcohol. These issues can range from mildly annoying to severely undermining your quality of life. Research from Rice University suggests that up to 70% of Americans are, to some degree, impacted by Candida.
How Does Candida Get Out of Control?
Under normal circumstances, your gut is home to a wide variety of beneficial bacteria called probiotics. If you have thriving populations of these bacteria, Candida is unlikely to present a problem. Candida, however, is highly opportunistic. If space is available, it multiplies in a hurry. Under ideal conditions, Candida can double its population every two hours.
In the modern world, probiotics face constant challenges. Antibiotics, oral contraceptives, chlorinated water (even in the shower or bath), poor diet, and even stress can deplete them. When probiotic populations decline, yeasts have more room to grow.
Enzymes: A Better Way
For decades, natural gut balance protocols, like those designed to support healthy Candida levels, were limited to herbs that have mild antifungal properties. These herbs, however, have three problems. First, they are sometimes not so good for your liver. Second, yeasts can become immune to them. Third, they can cause “die-off” reactions that make you feel worse instead of better.
The cell wall of Candida, and similar yeasts, are made of chitins, beta-glucans, mannoproteins, and glycoproteins. Like your skin or skeleton, the cell wall defines the yeast’s structure. If it breaks down to a large enough degree, the yeast cannot survive.
Our founder, Jerry Cochran, has studied Candida for over 30 years. It has a complex immune system that can produce countless counterfactors to overcome the antifungal effects of herbs. However, it cannot change its cell wall. Thus, the challenge was to find the best way to break the cell wall down. The answer came as a highly specific group of digestive enzymes.
While words like MannoPROTEINS and GlycoPROTEINS make it seem that you would need protein-digesting enzymes to break down substances that contain them, that fact is that you don’t. These compounds are actually 65% to 90% carbohydrate with bits of proteins woven in. Further, Candida’s cell wall is about 60% beta-glucan. The enzymes in Candex™ break these factors down.*
Candex™ is a fast-acting, pleasant microbiome support system that requires no major dietary changes. It has been the first choice of both consumers and health practitioners for over 20 years for one simple reason – it works! But it doesn’t just work – it works fast. You will begin feeling better in 10 days or less. And, you won’t have to feel worse before you feel better.*
Naturally, the success of Candex™ has spurred imitations. Most of these contain large levels of protease. However, protease is not necessary and might, when used between meals (as such products direct), aggravate ulcers and other gut issues that may accompany yeast overgrowth.*
