What is Candida?
Candida Albicans is a fungus that generally exists peacefully in the digestive tract and is a normal part of the gut flora. When a host is weakened in some way, primarily through long term use of antibiotics, this fungus may begin to overgrow and cause a cascade of health problems. It will begin to affect your digestion, weaken your immune system, and even damage your intestinal wall.
Factors that contribute to Candida overgrowth include history of antibiotic use, eating non-organic meat, excessive sugar intake, coffee or alcohol consumption, parasite infections and chronic stress.
