Offers a functional approach to achieving and maintaining balance in gastrointestinal flora, a primary component of GI health [1]. With a complementary blend of herbs, essential oils and sodium caprylate, Candicidal is formulated to support the body's immune response to potentially pathogenic microbes and manage an overgrowth of yeast species that can cause an imbalance.

Oregano Extract: Essential oils and phytonutrients from oregano, including rosmarinic acid and quercetin have been studied closely for their role in supporting antioxidant mechanisms and healthy microbial balance in the body [2,3].

Sodium Caprylate: A derivative of caprylic acid, is a medium-chain fatty acid with a long research history. Research indicates that it has the potential to support healthy microbial balance in the intestines without adversely affecting beneficial GI flora. Studies also suggest that it may have direct effects on cellular integrity and growth, further supporting gastrointestinal health [4,5].

Ginger: Offers support for gastrointestinal, immune, and antioxidant systems [6-8]. Ginger has been used for centuries for support of normal gastric function and activity.

Turmeric Extract: Has been used historically to support normal muscular contraction/relaxation and digestion. This ancient herb is rich in curcumin, which has been researched considerably for its protective effects [9,10], as well as its ability to support healthy cytokine balance {11,12]. The addition of turmeric to Candicidal provides additional support for GI function and balance. Very powerful anti-inflammatory spice.

Olive Leaf Extract:  Is known for its array of healthful attributes, including support for immune and antioxidant activities.

 

CAUTIONS: Do not use if you are pregnant or lactating.
