CandAid contains a blend of traditional herbs and other ingredients known for their anti-fungal activity. A yeast/fungal overgrowth can be indicated by oral and vaginal thrush, jock itch, urinary tract infections, dandruff and athletes foot. Candaid is formulated to help restore a healthy balance in the intestines. Excess sugar and alcohol, antibiotic use, hormonal changes, decreased immunity and stress can help these micro-organisms flourish in the intestines producing gas and toxic by-products. These irritate the walls of the large intestine which may lead to diverticulitis.
Benefits: Radiance Candaid is a combination of synergistic ingredients that help to support a healthy balance of intestinal flora. The beneficial bacteria that normally populate the gut assist in the digestion of food, produce certain vitamins and promote detoxification processes and support the immune system. A lack of this good bacteria is common in a lot of people, especially those who use antibiotics, steroids, cortisone or take synthetic hormonal preparations.
Take one capsule twice daily, preferably with meals.
Leanne suggests start with just 1 capsule in the evening only. Take 1 capsule for at least 3-4 days in a row, before increasing to 1 capsule twice a day.
Radiance Candaid is a formulation designed with a blend of synergistic traditional herbs that help rid the body of an overgrowth of the yeast Candida albicans and restore healthy balance to the intestinal tract.
Candidiasis is a yeast infection caused by an overgrowth of Candida Albicans. Under normal healthy conditions, Candida is found in the intestinal tract, vagina, mucous membranes of the mouth and on the skin. In small numbers they are harmless, however, for various reasons including poor diet (refined sugars, processed foods, alcohol, lack of fibre etc), inadequate hygiene, antibiotic use, hormonal changes, compromised immunity, stress etc, these micro-organisms proliferate and cause infections of the mucous membranes and the skin.
We know these infections as intestinal Candida, oral and vaginal thrush, jock itch, dandruff and athletes foot. In the intestines the yeast infection creates gas and toxic by-products which irritate the walls of the large intestine, beginning a decline in health of the intestine, from leaky gut to the formation of diverticula. This provides additional breeding grounds for the Candida albicans, due to the warm, putrid and anaerobic conditions.
The ingredients in this formula include:
Caprylic acid is a short chain fatty acid derived from coconut oil, which has been found to be a very effective antifungal agent, especially in the control and maintenance of normal healthy micro-organisms in the digestive tract.
Pau D'arco has immune enhancing, antifungal, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. Used for more than 1000 years as a traditional South American (Incan) remedy to treat yeast infection and cancer.
Black Walnut is used for expelling worms, parasites, Candida and other fungal or bacterial intestinal infectious agents.
Oregano oil extract provides carvacrol and thymol, which have fungicidal properties.
Biotin (D-biotin) is a sulphur-containing coenzyme (vitamin) produced by intestinal flora in healthy conditions.
The Enzyme base helps to break down the protective biofilm that candida produces, as well as breaking down the yeast cell wall of the candida albicans, allowing other enzymes and herbs to kill the yeast.
Radiance have also added the probiotic Bacillus coagulans a spore forming shelf stable probiotic.

Keep out of the reach of children. Not recommended during pregnancy or lactation. In all cases of illness, seek advice from a qualified health care professional before self prescribing. Please be aware that when you start taking this (as with all products that break down a yeast over growth) you may experience "die off", which produces a heady feeling. If this is the case, do not increase the dosage for a few days and dramatically increase your water intake. If symptoms persist, seek advice from your health care professional.
