Treatments and Remedies for Candidiasis (Candida albicans)
Candida albicans or Candidiasis and vitamins and minerals

Research has shown that the following vitamins and minerals can play very specific roles in the fortifications against Candida infection:

Vitamin C, folic acid (B9)-5-phosphate, pyridoxal, riboflavin, vitamin A, zinc, magnesium and selenium. Moreover, the essential fatty acid supplementation may be beneficial, and pantothenic acid can theoretically reduce the adverse effects of aldheídos by increasing the activity of aldehyde hydrogenase, which is the enzyme that metabolizes. These supplements mentioned here by the mere possibility that the state and individual and their requirements must be investigated and evaluated to design a custom program.

The essential oils against Candida albicans
Nature has provided for us the existence of essential oils in plants. These substances are active ingredients with highly potent in small doses. Thus, essential oils have always enjoyed a good reputation as antiviral agents, antifungals and antimicrobials.

Traditionally one of the essential oils most recommended in cases of Candida infections has been present in cinnamon oil, cinnamon bark, but there are more options that we present.

Indeed cinnamon bark (Cinnamomum cassia) contains a complex mixture of compounds (oils, tannins and OPCs) with antifungal and antibacterial properties that make this plant an option undisputed drug, as confirmed by some studies and trials. In addition, cinnamon bark has beneficial effect on digestion in cases of dyspepsia or pain by cold and health of the intestine so the effects we seek power to act against Candida in this location and the rest of mucous or in the skin. The best dose seems to be 7500 mg of cinnamon bark, if used as a standardized extract (EE) 5:1 would be 1500 mg ee

Also the olive leaf extract (Olea europaea) appears to have anti-infective effect on Candida, as demonstrated by a recent study, although in this case the active ingredients appear to be glycosides. The most appropriate dose in this case would be 1600 mg, equivalent to 400 mg of a ee 4:1.

The seed extract of fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) also acts on the digestive system, relieving dyspepsia, flatulence, indigestion and is believed to possess interesting antimicrobial effects likewise. The recommended dose would be 800 mg, corresponding to 200 mg of an ee 4:1.

And finally, regarding essential oils, cardamom oil (different species), obtained from the fruit of an exotic plant with well-known virtues of the digestive system to gas, flatulence and dyspepsia, helping to make better digestion. In this case we recommend 200 mg.

Direct action on the digestive functions of the earlier drugs, is an extra benefit to treat the discomforts arising from intestinal yeast infection.

Probiotics and Candida albicans
Lactobacillus acidophilus is the essential colonization of the small intestine and Bifidobacterium bifidum is essential colonizing the large intestine. Lactobacillus bacteria produces the enzyme lactase, which breaks the lactose molecule and creates lactic acid from carbohydrates. It has been shown that Lactobacillus acidophilus inhibits microorganisms E. coli, Salmonella and Shigelia, and therefore has a well-defined antibiotic effect. It has also been shown to inhibit the formation of the mycelium of Candida albicans.

The Bifidobacteria bifidum produces lactic acid and acetic acid, and compete with the pathogens in nutrient capture and occupation of points of implementation of their colonies. These friendly bacteria living within us and synergistically, among other beneficial actions, detoxify the intestinal tract and produce vitamins B Furthermore behave as an extension of our defense mechanisms, controlling and killing pathogenic bacteria, viruses and yeasts. Lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidum Bifidibacterua can be administered together in powder form, obtained by freezing and drying and presented in capsule form. Having regard to the role of lactose Candida encouraging, it is obviously preferable to choose a dietary supplement bearing a milk free base.

Yogurt and yeast
Other useful bifidobacteria are transitory, being varieties not colonizers. Its beneficial effect is due to lactic acid production which further lowers the pH of the intestines. Of particular interest are Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, have been in live yogurt, which is therefore a very useful food, provided that does not attend an intolerance to dairy products. Although it is best to avoid other dairy products due to its content of lactose, the lactose in yogurt has been almost completely converted into lactic acid-producing bifidobacteria pro enzymes, and thus the benefits of their presence in diets usually outweigh their possible disadvantages.

Candida albicans and other supplements
- Gastrointestinal System: FOS, fructooligosaccharides use is important because while stimulating the growth of beneficial bifidobacteria have the option to sweeten foods without adding absorbable carbohydrates. Lactobacilli and bifidobacteria to maintain beneficial intestinal flora. L-glutamine to restore intestinal permeability.

- Immune system: echinacea, caprylic, coriolus, copper, selenium, manganese

- Hepatobiliary System: milk thistle, artichoke, Desmodium, dandelion, sulfur

- Supplementation of vitamins and minerals, antioxidant supplementation

We must not forget the serving of the concrete manifestations and prepare appropriate treatment recommendations, for example, in cases of muscular pain, stress, fatigue and appreciate everything that can be intervening, because any reduction of the defenses for whatever reason may cause the increase of candida. The treatment of candida conditions is difficult and requires patience and good work by the health professional and get the cooperation of the person concerned.
