Health Information

Yeasts (fungi) are a family of organisms that occur everywhere in nature. The most well known yeast is probably Candida albicans, a common inhabitant of the human intestinal tract, mucous membranes of the mouth, skin and vagina. Normally C.albicans is kept in balance by our so-called beneficial micro flora. Alteration of this balance can result in the Candida proliferating out of control. This may result in the condition known as Candidiasis (moniliasis), which an overgrowth of causes the symptom Thrush.

Certain predisposing factors are known to increase the likelihood of developing a Candida overgrowth. These include broad spectrum antibiotic treatment, pregnancy, hormonal treatment or changes, stress, immune deficiencies (for example HIV infection), humid climates, diabetes, or other endocrine conditions, poor diet, processed foods, beverages, medications and stress sometimes affect the microbial balance in our intestine. Essential beneficial digestive bacteria compete with undesirable yeasts for space.

Kolorex Advanced Candida Care contains a liquid extract of pseudowintera colorata, more commonly known as Horopito. This New Zealand herb has a long history of traditional use. The main active in horopito is polygodial, which has shown powerful activity in the laboratory. Independent in vitro studies have shown that Kolorex is probably more useful than Pau d Arco or Olive leaf extract in helping your natural defences.

In 1982 a group from Canterbury University in NZ reported they had isolated a substance called polygodial in the leaves of Horopito. They grew cultures of candida albicans and measured the zone of inhibition in these cultures from the leaves of P.colorata. They found it was very effective at inhibiting candida. Comparison with the drug amphotericin B found that polygodial gave larger zones of inhibition. It also suppressed candida colony growth from day one, while amphotericin B required 3-4 days incubation. Microscopic examination revealed untreated control cells of candida to be large, round , smooth and actively budding. In contrast, polygodial treated cells were elongated, small and had a rough deformed appearance. Comparison between the effects of polygodial and the imidazone anti-candida agent Miconazole suggests both act by preventing cell division.

In a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) researchers established a direct correlation between vaginal yeast infection and the simultaneous overgrowth of candida in the digestive tract. In the 98 consecutive cases examined they found that yeast overgrowth was not restricted to the vagina alone, but also in the digestive tract. The investigators concluded that a 'cure is not likely as long as the vagina remains the only treatment target. So it may be prudent for women who have a vaginal yeast problem to give serious consideration to treating the possible intestinal reservoir as well. Kolorex capsules work best when taken in conjunction with a diet that is free of added yeast, added sugar & fermented foods and drinks. You should also take a probiotic supplement like Primadophilus Optima. Colostrum is also very beneficial for those who suffer with candida. For a full list of commonly problematic foods in candida, please ask for one.


Each 1 capsule contains: Kolorex RedLeaf liquid extract (Horopito or pseudowintera colorata) 10mg. Other ingredients: Olive oil, gelatin, glycerin and purified water.


Keep out of reach of children, not recommended for pregnant women. Some people experience discomfort, nausea and/or dizziness when first taking this supplement. These usually tail off through the course of treatment which indicates this is probably a reaction to the body absorbing large quantities of breaking down yeast cells rather than an allergy to Kolorex. Ensure your water intake is high, as this can help to flush the overgrowth out of the body.  Symptoms will be worse if your bowel does not move efficiently.
