Candidase

Complete Support for Balanced Yeast Levels

Enzymedica Candidase. Balance Yeast Overgrowth. 1-2 week cleanse. Prevent discomfort common to cleansing. Candidase is a high potency cellulase product, which when combined with protease was formulated to help manage yeast overgrowth. Candidase works by using cellulase in breaking down the outer layer of the single-celled candida organism. This layer is called chitin and is a polysaccharide similar to fibre. The cellulase digests the outer layer and in turn the cell dies. When the dead cell releases its toxins, the protease enzyme in the product breaks them down. In this manner, no die-off reaction occurs because toxins are not allowed to circulate throughout the body. In addition, any build-up of fibre in the colon is broken down and eliminated. Fibre can protect the yeast like a tent and create gas and bloating. Most people do best when they use candidase for 2 weeks, while some may need to remain on a maintenance dose after the 2 weeks, to prevent flare-ups. 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). Symptoms of a candida overgrowth include new allergies to foods, fatigue, poor digestion, gas, heartburn, sugar cravings, irritability, frequent headaches, poor memory, “fogged in” feeling, dizziness, recurring depression, vaginal infections, menstrual difficulties, prostatitis, urinary tract infections, hay fever, postnasal drip, habitual coughing, catch colds easily, sore throat, athlete's foot, skin rash, psoriasis, cold extremities, arthritis-like symptoms. The enzymes in Enzymedica Candidase may help with this overgrowth. 42 Capsules

Common Uses

Candidase with Cellulase and Protease

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.

Suggested Dosage

Suggested Use: 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.

Health Information

This is what Enzymedica have to tell us about Candidase

Candidase and candida albicans

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).

Symptoms of a candida overgrowth

Symptoms: New allergies to foods, fatigue, poor digestion, gas, heartburn, sugar cravings, irritability, frequent headaches, poor memory, “fogged in” feeling, dizziness, recurring depression, vaginal infections, menstrual difficulties, prostatitis, urinary tract infections, hay fever, postnasal drip, habitual coughing, catch colds easily, sore throat, athlete’s foot, skin rash, psoriasis, cold extremities, arthritis-like symptoms.

Enzymes can help with a candida overgrowth

Enzymes may help with this overgrowth.

There are three reasons why:

  1. 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.
     
  2. Fungi (Candida) is a group of organisms formerly regarded as plants lacking chlorophyll. They can either exist as single cells or make up a multi-cellular body called a mycelium, which consists of filaments known as hyphae. The cell 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.
     
  3. 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.

Candidase is a high potency cellulase product, which when combined with protease was formulated to manage yeast overgrowth.
