Candida is a genus of yeast found in small amounts on our skin and in the mouth and intestines. An overgrowth of Candida can lead to oral thrush, recurring yeast infections, digestion woes, and fungal infections on the skin and nails, including athlete’s foot and ringworm.
Stonehenge Health Natural Candida Formula contains ingredients proven to help prevent and treat Candida overgrowth. Here, we take a closer look at Candida and how our formula helps your body maintain healthy levels of this naturally occurring yeast.
Causes of Candida Overgrowth
Normally, the healthy bacteria in your gut keep Candida levels under control. But a variety of things can cause an overgrowth, including medications like antibiotics and birth control pills, chronic stress, diabetes, a weakened immune system, heavy alcohol consumption, and a diet high in sugar and refined carbs.
An overgrowth of Candida is known as candidiasis, which can cause a variety of symptoms and conditions and may contribute to gastrointestinal problems like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
Natural Candida Formula Ingredients That Fight Candida Overgrowth
Our Natural Candida Formula contains 11 powerful ingredients to help keep your Candida at normal levels. Here’s a closer look at how ingredient goes to work helping you stay balanced.
Oregano leaf extract slows the overgrowth of yeast cells. Oregano has natural anti-fungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties that are particularly effective for treating yeast infections, according to a study published in the journal Nutrition Today.
Caprylic acid (magnesium caprylate) is a saturated fatty acid that breaks down yeast cells, including those that are deeply embedded. Like oregano leaf extract, it has antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties.
Lactobacillus acidophilus is a probiotic that promotes healthy gut bacteria for a balanced microbiome. Research shows that this probiotic in particular suppresses Candida growth and reduces oral and vaginal overgrowths.
Protease and cellulase are enzymes that destroy yeast cell walls and their nuclei. Protease produces byproducts known to kill Candida yeast, and cellulase helps reduce Candida’s ability to form protective biofilms.
Aloe vera leaf gel promotes a healthy gut lining, and once a yeast infection occurs, it can help relieve burning and itching by consuming it in a supplement or applying it topically.
Arabinogalactan is a complex carbohydrate that plays a dominant role in immune function to help the body maintain a healthy balance of bacteria.
Anise seed is the most effective herb when it comes to inhibiting fungal and microbial activity, according to the University of Mississippi.
Black walnut hulls powder contains a chemical called juglone that naturally treats Candida. In fact, a study published in the Journal of Natural Remedies showed that juglone was almost as effective as prescription medication for treating Candida overgrowth.
Wormwood leaf powder is an herb that helps the body maintain a healthy balance of gut flora. Artemisinin, an active ingredient in wormwood leaf powder, fights against Candida’s biofilm and disrupts the function of its mitochondria.
Reishi mushroom offers a powerful boost to the immune system, and it inhibits the growth of bad bacteria in the body.
