Candida Plus CDX Yeast Balance 42c
CDX 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, or when conditions favor the growth of the yeast over the normal flora of the intestine, and overpopulation of yeast and infection results. This is known as Candidiasis and the fungus travels to all parts of the body through the bloodstream. In the mouth, it is called thrush; in the vagina, it is called vaginitis (yeast infection). It affects both men and women.
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 mucous 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 the mucous and our body is able to achieve balance.
2) Fungi (Candida) are 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. As the enzyme protease has the ability to hydrolyze (digest) protein, protease has been used in many clinics to break down this fungus and prevent its overgrowth.

For moderate symptoms of Candida:
Take 2 capsules, 3 times a day at least 1/2 hour before or 2 hours after a meal for 7 days. (This provides 180,000 CU of cellulase and 600,0000 HUT of protease).
For acute symptoms:
Take 2 capsules, 3 times a day at least 1/2 hour before or 2 hours after a meal for 14 days. In extreme cases more time may be given.
For best results 4 PRX can be added to each dose.
Take 2 capsules before bedtime.
CDX should not be taken with any timed release medications.
