Candidase is a high potency cellulase product, which when combined with protease was formulated to manage yeast overgrowth.
Candida albicans is a yeast-like fungus that normally lives in healthy balance in the body. It is found mostly in the intestines, genital tract, mouth, and throat. When the balance is upset, overgrowth results. This is known as Candidiasis and the fungus travels to all parts of the body through the bloodstream. It affects both women and men. In the mouth, it is called thrush; in the vagina, it is called vaginitis (yeast infection).
Enzymes may help with this overgrowth. In individuals with Candida overgrowth there is often a large amount of undigested fiber in the large intestine. It is believed that the mucus that the body naturally produces due to the difficulty of digesting this fiber (cellulose) may protect the Candida from our body's natural overgrowth prevention mechanisms. Cellulase is the enzyme that breaks down fiber. It is also the only digestive enzyme our body does not make. By adding cellulase to the diet this fiber can be removed along with inappropriate mucus and our body is able to achieve balance.
For moderate symptoms, take 2 capsules, 3 times per day at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal for 7 days (for maintenance 2 a day). For acute symptoms, take 2 capsules, 3 times a day at least ½ hour before or 2 hours after a meal for 14 days. In extreme cases more time may be given. For best results 1 Virastop may be added each time Candidase is taken.
Contraindications: Candidase should not be taken with any timed-release medications that use cellulose as its time-release mechanism.
Candidase™ includes two enzymes that help control Candida overgrowth. In individuals with yeast overgrowth there is often a large amount of undigested fiber in the large intestine. Cellulase is the enzyme that breaks down fiber. It is also the only digestive enzyme our body does not make. By adding cellulase to the diet this fiber may be removed along with mucus and our body is able to achieve balance. The cell of yeast contains some fungal cellulose or a compound called chitin. Chitin is a polysaccharide, or carbohydrate, which is structurally very similar to cellulose. For the same reasons cellulase may help remove undigested fiber in the colon, it has been used in breaking down this cellulose-like chitin. The inside of the cell of yeast is mostly protein . The enzyme protease has the ability to hydrolyze (digest) protein. Protease has been used in clinics all over the world to break down this fungus and prevent its overgrowth. The addition of protease to this formula helps the body deal with excess "die-off" or common symptoms of cleansing.
