(NaturalNews) Candida albicans is a yeast fungus that occurs naturally in the human body. It naturally lives in harmony with a variety of other microorganisms and actually performs some important functions. The problem occurs when certain lifestyle-based environmental conditions upset the balance of microflora in the body. This allows the yeast to proliferate and dominate certain regions of the body. Natural compounds help reduce yeast levels and keep them in balance in the body.

Candida normally resides in the mucous membranes of the intestinal tract, mouth, throat and genitals. When overgrowth occurs, Candida has the ability to burrow holes in the intestinal tract and enter the bloodstream. Once it gets into the bloodstream, it is able to make its way into any organ or region of the body. The worst part is that it emits over 70 different toxins into the bloodstream and body.

Symptoms associated with candida:

  • Leaky Gut Syndrome
  • Food Allergies/Sensitivities
  • Nutritional Malabsorption
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Skin Fungus
  • Autoimmunity
  • Hormonal Dysfunction
  • Acid Reflux
  • Abdominal Bloating
  • Rashes/Hives
  • Crohn's Disease
  • IBS
  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Acne/Eczema
  • Joint Pain
  • Bad Breath
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Diarrhea/Constipation

Caprylic acid:

Caprylic acid is also used in the treatment of some bacterial infections. Due to its relatively short chain length, it has no difficulty in penetrating fatty cell wall membranes, hence its effectiveness in combating certain lipid-coated bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus and various species of Streptococcus. (1) It is also especially good as an anti-yeast agent with profound benefit at destroying pathogenic Candida albicans strains.

Pau D'Arco:

Pau D'Arco is the bark of a South and Central American tree called taheebo. It is known as a powerful anti-microbial that is especially effective against yeast and parasites. Its main constituent is lapachol, which is a quinone and a recognized anti-tumor agent that is found in the wood and bark of the taheebo tree. (2)

Cat's claw:

This rainforest tree bark has potent anti-microbial characteristics. Cat's claw's bark and roots provide most of its immune-boosting qualities via oxindole alkaloids. These alkaloids enhance white blood cells' ability to engulf pathogens and destroy them.

Cat's claw is used to effectively handle digestive problems such as gastric or duodenal ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis and leaky bowel syndrome. Cat's claw has demonstrated a capacity for flushing out pathogens and irritants from the gastrointestinal tract. (3)

Uva ursi extract:

The leaves of this small shrub have been used as an herbal folk medicine for centuries as a mild diuretic and astringent, and in the treatment of all forms of kidney and urinary tract infections (UTIs). (4) It has been shown to be particularly effective against E. coli and Candida, which are the two most common culprits of UTIs, kidney infections and interstitial cystitis.

The glucoside arbutin within uva ursi goes largely unabsorbed and unchanged through the body and is excreted by the kidneys. During its excretion, arbutin exercises an antiseptic effect on the urinary mucous membrane. (5) Uva ursi also contains diuretic chemicals, including ursolic acid, powerful astringents and a chemical that helps promote the growth of healthy new cells, allantoin. (6)

Undecylenic acid:

Undecylenic acid (10-undecenoic acid) is an 11-carbon, mono-unsaturated fatty acid occurring naturally in the body's perspiration and is also derived from castor oil. Undecylenic acid is a medium-chain fatty acid, which are known to interfere with viral and fungal replication. (7)

Undecylenic acid has been shown to inhibit the morphogenesis of Candida albicans by blocking the conversion of yeast to the hyphal form. Hyphae are associated with active infection.
