(NaturalNews) The numerous medical treatments for candida all share one quality: they are ineffective. Prescription drugs for candida often don't work at all, or even if they do, it's generally just a matter of time before the candida flairs up again. If you've been struggling to treat your candida with prescriptions or over-the-counter drugs, it's time to turn to more effective natural remedies such as garlic supplements.

It's the antifungal and antimicrobial properties of garlic that help keep candida at bay. Yeast and garlic simply can't coexist, so regular garlic intake is a highly effective method for controlling candida. Garlic is also known for improving immune system function, which can further help your body fight off candida naturally.

Garlic supplements are the most comprehensive way to take garlic regularly. Some people simply cannot tolerate eating garlic at all, and even if you like garlic, you might not want to eat it every single day. Supplements are an excellent way to achieve the regular garlic intake that is necessary to fight candida and prevent future occurrences.

Garlic in supplement form is easy to find and quite inexpensive. You can often find garlic capsules at your local grocery store or drug store, although higher quality garlic supplements might be found at a health or natural foods store.

Dosage varies depending on the severity of your candida problems, but generally 600-900 mg per day is adequate. This is usually about 6-9 capsules each day. Keep in mind some people are more sensitive to garlic supplements than others; adjust your dosage accordingly. Garlic will be most effective if it is consistently in the body, so spreading your supplements out during the day will boost results. After your candida symptoms have lessened considerably, you can adjust dosage down to just 2-4 capsules per day. This is also a good maintenance-level dosage to prevent candida from reoccurring.

Garlic capsules are recommended for avoiding the stomach upset and lingering garlic taste that sometimes occur with tablets. The best supplements are freeze-dried garlic that has been standardized to 1.3% alliin or 0.6% allicin. Alliin and allicin are the important antimicrobial and antifungal ingredients in garlic. If you do want to take tablets instead of capsules, be sure to get enteric-coated tablets as this will reduce unpleasant side effects.

Successful treatment of candida is often noted by a few days of heightened candida symptoms and sometimes flu-like symptoms in the very beginning. This is a reaction caused by excess amounts of yeast dying off in the body and should disappear quickly.
