Protexin Bio-Kult Candea
Biokult Candea is a probiotic supplement with added garlic and grapefruit seed extract. Taken daily it can help strengthen the body’s natural defenses against candida overgrowth.
What is Candida? It is known that at least one third of healthy people carry the Candida fungus in the mouth, intestine or the vagina in its commensal, unicellular, yeast-like form. This form of candida is normally harmless, especially in low numbers, and is therefore considered a normal inhabitant in these locations. In certain circumstances, such as where an overgrowth occurs, it can change to an invasive, multicellular, filamentous fungus form. This can cause a condition called candidiasis, where the filaments can attach to the intestinal wall and break down the boundary with the circulatory system. This can then allow partially digested dietary proteins into the bloodstream and trigger immune responses throughout the body. Biokult Candea contains seven strains of probiotic bacteria to reinforce the gut microflora helping to prevent candida from finding sites in the gut to grow. They also lower the gut pH so that candida, which prefers a more alkaline environment, cannot thrive.
Two capsules provide 250 mg Grapefruit seed extract, 120 mg Garlic, and 2 billion Probiotic Cultures including: Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus delbruecki ssp Bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophilus, Bifidobacterium breve, and Bifodobacterium longum.
