You may have heard that we have millions of micro organisms living in our body. While many of them live in harmony with our bodies, even keeping us healthy there are a few ” bad guys” that can really do damage to our health.
Candida is known to contribute to serious health issues including auto immune diseases, IBS, and even cancer.
What is Candida?
Candida is a yeast micro organism that lives in our lower intestine. Its main purpose is to help decompose our bodies when we die. We all have Candida in our bodies, however the issues arise when we get an overgrowth of it. This yeast LOVES sugar! If you’re someone who constantly craves sugar there is a good chance you’re dealing with Candida overgrowth. Check out the Yeast overgrowth quiz in my Instagram highlights!
Candida burrows itself into the intestinal wall. Causing small holes in the protective intestinal lining. This is known as leaky gut.”
Candida releases a toxin called Candidalysin which can be extremely harmful to our health. This toxin destroys human cells by forming holes in their membranes. Candida burrows itself into the intestinal wall, causing small holes in the protective intestinal lining. This is commonly referred to as leaky gut. All those mystery symptoms like chronic headaches, weight struggles, fatigue, acne etc are all linked to an over growth of candida and leaky gut syndrome.
The “Candida diet” has multiple variations. The goal of these diets is to rid the body of excess Candida. Unfortunately these diets are only able to provide temporary relief. Candida is a highly resilient spore forming yeast. When its food source ( sugar) is low or unavailable it becomes dormant. The spores are also heavily protected by an exoskeleton. This makes it nearly impossible for our immune system to attack it.
If you truly want to rid your body of excess Candida, you need to deal with the spores.
One of the most effective ways of killing candida spores is to use an enzyme called Chitinase. Chitinase works by breaking down Chitin, the main component of the exoskeleton. By breaking down the cell wall, it leaves Candida vulnerable and exposed to our immune system. Allowing our bodies to kill Candida for good.
I personally use this probiotic . It contains the chitinase enzyme and has multiple strains of beneficial bacteria. ( Probiotic) That way you’re able to kick out the “bad guys” and replenish the “good guys” I’ve used this probiotic for years including during two pregnancies and while breastfeeding. Its the only one I feel a difference with. I highly recommend subscribing to save $$$
