Candida at a Glance
What is Candida?
Do you suffer from abdominal pain, gas, bloating, indigestion, bad breath, skin rashes, allergies, muscle aches, cold hands and feet, thrush, depression, irritability and difficulty in concentrating? If so, you may have candida overgrowth.
Many people have experienced these symptoms, and some for many years without knowing the underlying cause. Candida Albicans is the most common type of yeast infection found in the mouth, intestinal tract and vagina, and it may affect skin and other mucous membranes.
If the immune system is functioning optimally, this type of yeast infection is rarely serious. However, if the immune system is not functioning properly, the candida infection can migrate to other areas of the body, including the blood and membranes around the heart or brain.
Candida Albicans Candida is a fungus that aids with nutrient absorption and digestion, when in proper levels in the body. When it overproduces, the typical candida symptoms may appear. In the digestive tract, left unchecked, it breaks down the walls of the intestinal lining and penetrates into the bloodstream. This releases by-product toxins and other toxins from your system, causing leaky gut syndrome.
When you body’s natural pH balance is upset, the candida can grow out of control, creating a systemic problem. Good healthy bacteria and a properly functioning immune system are essential when fighting this stubborn infection.
Candida Overgrowth Syndrome, or COS, is the term used when candida has grown out of control in your body. Make no mistake: This is a chronic health condition. Individuals that have never experienced a serious yeast infection can find they have developed new sensitivities, allergies or intolerances to a variety of foods. These foods include dairy, eggs, corn and gluten. [read more about the topic, what is Candida?

For the treatment of Candida
Candida-X Tablets is a formula made up of five powerfully-effective herbs: Jatobá, Pau d’Arco, and Anamu from the Amazon Rain Forest, chaparral from the U.S. south-west desert, and dulse from the ocean.
For thousands of years, these herbs have been used traditionally for myriad ailments by indigenous populations and, over the last several hundred years, the rain forest herbs and chaparral have been adopted by conquering newcomers, to one extent or another, for the same traditional purposes.
Since the 1950's, the five herbs have been scientifically studied, chemically analyzed, and tested for their effects on various medical situations, ailments, and diseases.
All of them have been used traditionally for killing fungus and yeast infestations, among many other things, and the scientific findings corroborate the efficacy of this traditional use.
