Candidase is a high potency cellulase product, which when combined with protease was formulated to manage yeast overgrowth.
Candida albicans is a yeast-like fungus that normally lives in healthy balance in the body. It is found mostly in the intestines, genital tract, mouth, and throat. When the balance is upset, overgrowth results. This is known as Candidiasis and the fungus travels to all parts of the body through the bloodstream. It affects both women and men. In the mouth, it is called thrush; in the vagina, it is called vaginitis (yeast infection).
Enzymes may help with this overgrowth. In individuals with Candida overgrowth there is often a large amount of undigested fiber in the large intestine. It is believed that the mucus that the body naturally produces due to the difficulty of digesting this fiber (cellulose) may protect the Candida from our body's natural overgrowth prevention mechanisms. Cellulase is the enzyme that breaks down fiber. It is also the only digestive enzyme our body does not make. By adding cellulase to the diet this fiber can be removed along with inappropriate mucus and our body is able to achieve balance.
