OK what part of the body does the
product “Candida Yeast Support” affect?
While it seems to affect all parts
of the body it actually goes to work in the
intestinal tract both in the large and small
What are the ingredients in
Candida Yeast Support?
are: Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) 75mg;
Thiamine (Vitamin B-1) 0.4mg; Riboflavin
(Vitamin B-2) 0.4 mg; Vitamin B-6 0.4 mg;
Bacillus Coagulans 200 Million CFU; Bacillus
Subtillis 25 Million CFU; Enterococcus Faecium
50 Million CFU; Fructooligosaccharides (FOS)-
(Chicory Root-based) 215 mg.
How does it work?
Yeast Support” is a product that is made up of
live bacteria. And this live bacteria is put into
a deep sleep by dry freezing it very quickly. It
is then put into capsules. As swallow the capsules
they travel of course down your throat, into your
stomach and then into your intestinal tract where
the live bacteria “wakes-up” to go about looking
for “bad guys” and bringing them under control.
“Bad guys”? What
do you mean by that?
“candida” or “candida yeast” or “candida albicans”
or just simply “yeast”.
live bacteria? I thought all bacteria were bad?
Not true. This is a
big, big misconception. Not all bacteria are bad.
Our intestinal tract is chock-full of bacteria.
Can you believe over 400 different strains consist
of trillions of these little plants? The fact is
we need bacteria in our intestinal tract in order
to live. Without these bacteria we would soon
we would die? Are you serious?
Dead serious. You
see not only do these live bacteria help us
breakdown and digest our food they help us
evacuate waste out of our bodies. Like I said
without them we would soon die.
So where does
this candida yeast fungus come into play?
We have many areas
of our body that contain fungus like the mouth,
vaginal area in women and the intestinal tract. A
certain amount of candida yeast is helpful— too
much is a problem.
So let me get
this straight— fungus within our intestinal tracts
can become a problem?
what seems to happen.
Why is it the
yeast fungus or candida yeast fungus seems to grow
out of control?
Actually there are
other types that can grow out of control also but
due to many variables the yeast family seems very
susceptible to it.
What sort of
variables are you talking about?
There seem to be 5
factors that can cause candida yeast to grow out
of control in the intestinal tract:
- A diet heavy in refined carbohydrates.
- Skin to skin contact.
So how do refined carbohydrates
cause a yeast overgrowth?
Easy, yeast seems to like the
“taste” of refined carbs. And consequently it can
cause the yeast to grow out of control. The fact
is the average person eats more than 100 pounds of
sugar per year. Yeast seems to love sugar; it’s as
simple as that.
What about antibiotics? I thought
antibiotics were good for us?
They are to a point but the fact is
that doctors now prescribe antibiotics like they
were prescribing candy— everyone gets antibiotics
if they need them or not. Obviously for many thing
antibiotics are needed and important. You remember
the old physics law that states that for every
action there is an equal reaction. In other words
doing one thing quite often produces results that
may not always be seen or understood. It’s this
way with antibiotics. They are meant to kill
unfriendly bacteria or infections that reside in
the body. However antibiotics are indiscriminant
“killers”. They can kill both good and bad
bacteria. And if wholesale killing of good
bacteria happens in the intestinal tract then
families of fungus that are normally held in check
by good bacteria can be suddenly “turned free” to
reproduce at an explosive rate. Yeast or candida
yeast seem to be one of those that will expand
rapidly if antibiotics cause the death of too many
good bacteria. Check the directions of any
antibiotic; diarrhea is a pretty common malady
that is associated with antibiotic use. You know
what’s happening don’t you? The bacteria in your
intestinal tract are thrown out of whack due to
the antibiotics, which causes your waste
evacuation system to go haywire. But an even more
serious problem is the potential for causing
fungus to grow out of control contributing to many
issues throughout the body.
What is this term “Candida”?
“Candida” is often just another
term used to describe yeast fungus. Quite often
when someone says they have a “candida problem”
what they are really saying is that they have a
yeast overgrowth problem. It is also referred to
as “Candida Albicans” or a “Candida Yeast”
So if I here someone say they
have a “candida” problem they mean they have a
yeast overgrowth problem?
That is correct.
But what if they say they have a
“systemic candida problem”?
What this means in some circles is
that the candida yeast have gotten in the blood
stream and are causing issues throughout the body.
You sound uncertain about this?
The challenge is that many in the
orthodox medical community within the western
hemisphere don’t believe that candida yeast is a
problem, however many doctors in the Far East and
Europe have concluded that a yeast overgrowth is a
big problem. Some have called it the “epidemic of
the 21st century.”
The “epidemic of the 21st
century”? That sounds pretty intense?
It is. And when you see the vast
number of issues that seem to be tied to a
potential candida yeast overgrowth you’ll see why
many people believe that upwards of 80% of all
Americans suffer from one extent or another due to
What sort of issues are we talking
- Digestive problems
- Oral thrush (a white “coating” of the tongue,
inside of the mouth and potentially throat)
- Vaginal thrush
- Jock itch
- Skin rashes
- Clouded thinking
- Nail fungus
- Sinus problems
- Food allergies
- Athletes foot
- Joint/muscle pain
That’s a heck of a list! You mean
all these issues are tied to a candida yeast
All the time? No. But over the last
decade it has been found that by controlling the
overgrowth of candida yeast in the intestinal
tract that many of these issues are lessened… many
times the issues have disappeared totally. It
appears that even those in the orthodox medical
community are slowly coming around to the idea
that having too much yeast or candida yeast in the
intestinal tract can result in many undesirable
So how can an overgrowth of
candida yeast in your intestinal tract lead to
these other various issues?
Good question. There seems to be a
couple schools of thought. #1. It appears that
many times a candida yeast overgrowth can
contribute to a weakening of the immune system.
And as the immune system weakens it allows some of
these other issues to overtake the body. #2. As
the candida yeast “eat” they expel toxins that
flow throughout the body contributing to bad
issues. #3. Candida yeast can infiltrate the blood
stream contributing to issues. But hat being said
it seems from dealing with literally thousands of
people that if the candida yeast overgrowth in the
intestinal tract is brought under control that
many of these issues cease to become issues.
Is this a problem that affects
men and women equally?
Absolutely! Obviously woman will
suffer vaginal yeast infections and men won’t but
men seem to make it up with digestive problems,
jock itch, oral thrush, fatigue and clouded
Are there any age specifics with
No, babies can get diaper rash
(which many believe is a candida yeast problem) to
oral thrush to digestive problem.
How would babies get a candida
One school of thought is that they
can get it by coming in contact with the candida
yeast within the vaginal canal during childbirth.
Others believe it is passed through the blood and
others believe that it is passed due to
What sort of digestive problems
are associated with a candida yeast overgrowth?
Constipation, diarrhea, gas,
bloating are all typical signs of a candida yeast
problem. It also seems that acid reflux and
heartburn could also be connected. IBS (irritable
bowel syndrome) is another issue that seems to
have some connection to a candida yeast problem.
Food allergies are connected to a
candida yeast problem?
They seem to be and it makes sense.
If you don’t have the right amount of bacteria in
your intestinal tract then you can’t process
certain foods and thus you can become allergic.
How long can a person suffer with
a candida yeast problem?
In many cases people have suffered
for decades without properly addressing or even
understanding that they have a candida yeast
problem. The biggest problem in dealing with a
candida yeast overgrowth is recognizing that you
have a problem. Again if you are working with a
doctor that doesn’t understand the importance of
proper bacteria health within your intestinal
tract you’re not likely to get the right help.
Heck many times people are prescribed antibiotics,
which can make the problem even worse.
Is there any sort of test someone
can take to tell if they have a candida yeast
Yes, there is special test called
the “Spit Test” and you do it like this…
First thing in the morning, before
you put ANYTHING in your mouth, get a clear glass.
Fill with water and work up a bit of saliva, then
spit it into the glass of water. Check the water
in about 30 to 45 minutes. If you have a potential
problem you will see strings (like legs) traveling
down into the water from the saliva floating on
the top, or “cloudy” saliva will sink to the
bottom of the glass, or cloudy specks will seem to
be suspended in the water. If there are no strings
and the saliva is still floating after one hour,
you probably have normal levels of yeast under
Is the “Spit Test” accurate?
Even though it may sound “hokey”
after having thousands of people take the test it
does seem to be relevant.
Any other tests out there?
Yes, measuring your pH can give
some indication if you have a candida yeast
problem. Someone that is more acid (less than 7.0)
is quite often found to be at a higher risk for a
candida yeast overgrowth.
You mention antibiotics as
something a doctor may prescribe for an issue tied
to candida yeast, what else my they suggest and is
Great question. Many times a doctor
will prescribe some sort of anti-fungal product
for a candida yeast overgrowth. The problem is
that like when taking antibiotics, an anti-fungal
can do more long-term harm than it does short-term
good. Not too mention the warning labels for many
anti-fungals suggest that long-term use could
result in damage to internal organs like the liver
Are there any other problems with
Yes, it seems (as reported by many
people) that a specific anti-fungal only seems to
work for a limited time. The candida yeast seems
to “mutate” rendering the anti-fungal ineffective.
Then you are forced to take another type of
Anti-fungals do not seem to be a
Many experts along with the people
that have taken the anti-fungals would support
that view. There are better solutions that seem to
be much safer and not damaging to your other
organs—but the best thing is that the candida
yeast doesn’t seem to be able to “mutate” against
his other solution either so it always seems to be
Isn’t oil of oregano and coconut
oil considered “natural” antifungals?
Yes they are. And while they don’t
seem to have the “kick” that prescription
anti-fungals do they don’t seem to be as effective
towards a candida yeast problem either as a couple
other solutions like “Candida Yeast Support”.
In your experience what have you
found to be the best solution for a candida yeast
The best solution we’ve found (and
we’ve dealt with thousands of people) is a very
special type of probiotic like “Candida Yeast
Support” that seems to be very aggressive towards
A special type of probiotic? What
is a “probiotic”?
A probiotic is the name given to
the live bacteria that are ingested via a capsule,
powder or some other method. There are literally
hundreds of different types of probiotics on the
market today. Some cost as little as a few dollars
and some in the hundreds of dollars.
What’s the difference?
Like I said earlier there are
hundreds of different types of bacteria in your
intestinal tract and literally thousands more that
exist on the planet. Some bacteria do one thing
and some do another. Consequently the cost to grow
and package one type of bacteria can be far
different than the cost to grow and package
So not all probiotics are the
So will just any probiotic help
with a candida yeast overgrowth?
A person can get a little relief
(sometimes) with a basic probiotic but it has been
found that most probiotics for one reason or
another don’t seem to be very effective towards a
candida yeast problem.
Why is that?
There are a number of reasons.
First off some strains of bacteria are aggressive
towards candida yeast while most are not.
You mean some basically “kill”
the candida yeast?
Some use the word “kill” some use
the word “control” but the fact is that some
bacteria do seem to be more aggressive towards
candida yeast than others. We know of thousands of
people that have tried to control their candida
yeast problem with an “off-the-shelf” probiotic
that one would find at a health food store or
dietary supplement retail business and have had no
luck what so ever— even after spending months and
months taking these probiotics.
So in your opinion why aren’t
most probiotics useful against candida yeast?
Well look at it from this point of
view… Remember that you have (under optimum
conditions) literally hundreds of different
strains of bacteria in your intestinal tract
numbering in the trillions. So how much help do
you think taking a capsule filled with 5 or 8 or
12 different strain of bacteria that number only a
few billion will be to you? The answer is when it
comes to a candida yeast problem not much.
But in “Candida Yeast Support”
you only have 3 strain of bacteria numbering less
than 300 million and you say that it’s more
effective than other probiotics that number in the
billions— how is that possible?
Like I said before… The lab that
originally cultured these bacteria that are found
in “Candida Yeast Support” discovered they were
very aggressive towards candida yeast— much more
so than most bacteria found in virtually any other
product on the market. It’s like this if you hired
two groups of cleaners to come in to clean your
house and the first group consisted of just 3
people while the second group consisted of 12
people. The group of 3 come in and immediately
gets to work, cleaning your house from top to
bottom. The group of 12 come in and sits around in
your living room and watch TV.
Which group would you want to
clean your house?
OK, point well made. So it’s not
how many strain of bacteria or how many total
bacteria are in a probiotic but what type of
bacteria they are that’s important when it comes
to helping control a candida yeast problem. So I
can’t assume that all probiotics are the same?
Correct. Most probiotics have not
been found to be anywhere near as effective for
literally thousands of our customers as the
bacteria found in “Candida Yeast Support”.
Other than anti-fungals and
probiotics what other method do people try when
attempting to get their candida yeast problem
Diet is quite often the first thing
people try and in some cases it seems to work
temporarily but the strictness of most “candida”
or “yeast” diets keeps people from being able to
stick to them for any length of time.
Are these diets that strict?
Yes, they ask you to not eat
virtually anything other than green vegetables,
chicken and fish. All grains are eliminated, all
dairy is eliminated, all fruits are eliminated
along with several cuts of meat. Make no mistake
candida or yeast diets are brutal. I haven’t known
a single person that has been able to stick to it
for any length of time. And in many cases it
doesn’t seem to change much of anything.
What do you mean it doesn’t
change “much of anything”?
Like I said before quite often a
candida yeast problem seems to be traced to one’s
heredity or metabolism so the diet doesn’t have
What is the term “prebiotic” and
how does that figure into all this good bacteria
and candida talk?
“Prebiotics” are a type of dietary
supplement that “feed” the good bacteria within
your intestinal tract. Prebiotics work as sort of
a “fertilizer” for the microscopic bacteria
plants. The good bacteria feed and reproduce. This
in itself is a very good thing because the growth
of good bacteria helps keep the bad bacteria in
check. It’s sorta like feeding your lawn a proper
fertilizer so that the grass continues to grow and
keep the weeds crowded out.
You sound very positive when it
comes to “Prebiotics”?
Yes I am. Quite frankly for just
maintaining intestinal health without having a
candida yeast concern I believe a prebiotic is
better for you than a regular probiotic.
And what are “Synbiotics”?
Synbiotics are combination
probiotics and prebiotics in a single capsule. In
other words you’re adding good bacteria to your
system and you’re getting the “fertilizer” to help
your existing good bacteria grow too. Sort of a
“double-edged sword”. “Candida Yeast Support” is a
“synbiotic”— it is both a probiotic and a
prebiotic in a single capsule. It’s another good
reason why this product seems to be so effective
when it comes to a candida yeast problem.
So how do the ingredients in
“Candida Yeast Support” compare to any other
product on the market?
There is only one other product on
the market that has ingredients similar to
“Candida Yeast Support” and that product does not
have as much good bacteria as this product and
this competing product costs 20% more than
“Candida Yeast Support”, which regularly sells for
Can you recap for me briefly the
different ways that someone can attempt to control
their candida yeast problem?
Again let me remind you that we
have experience in dealing with thousands of
people when it comes to candida yeast problems and
- Antifungals— Either
those prescribed by doctors or those found in an
alternative health food store. They can kill
both good & bad bacteria. They can leave
your intestinal tract “barren” so the bad
bacteria can regrow and repopulate even more
fiercely than before. Antifungals are also hard
on your other organs. Candida yeast seems to be
able to mutate rendering the antifungal
ineffective after a time.
- Regular probiotics— They
attempt to repopulate the intestinal tract but
they seem to be too few in number to make any
sort of a difference. Most bacteria that come in
probiotics don’t seem to be aggressive towards
candida yeast either. Plus most bacteria found
in probiotics aren’t protected through
enterocoating so the acids of the stomach more
easily destroy the live bacteria.
- Diet— Basically
your diet is limited to green vegetables along
with chicken and fish. This is designed to stop
the candida yeast from being “fed”. The problem
is that a diet this strict just cannot be
maintained for any length of time. It’s too
hard. Plus in many cases it has been found to be
only slightly effective or not effective period.
- A “synbiotic” like
Candida Yeast Support— Let’s look at
why this product category seems to be
- It is made up of strains of bacteria that seem
to be highly aggressive towards candida yeast.
The bacteria don’t just “sit” in your intestinal
tract and not do anything.
- A “bacteria fertilizer” known as a prebiotic
is combined with the live bacteria packed in the
capsule, with the expressed purpose of “feeding”
the good bacteria that already exists in your
intestinal tract causing it to grow and
reproduce which in turn helps crowd out the “bad
How long does it take for someone
to get their candida yeast issues under control
using something like Candida Yeast Support?
Typically it seems to take between
one and six months. Some issues like nail fungus
have been reported to take longer.
How many capsules are in Candida
Yeast Support and what is the recommended dosage?
There are 60 capsules per bottle. A
maintenance amount is one capsule per day. For
someone just starting a more aggressive program
would be two to as many as four capsules per day
for the first 30 to 60 days.
And what is the cost of Candida
