MEET THE SUPERFOOD INGREDIENTS THAT CAN NATURALLY PROTECT AGAINST CAND
Candida can exist harmlessly in the human body. In fact, at any one time it can be present in up to 60% of healthy individuals. But when the environment is right, Candida can quickly multiply, grow out of control and cause candidiasis – a condition that can cause a whole load of unpleasant symptoms.
So what can we do to fight this opportunistic yeast and keep it at harmless levels? Well, you might be surprised to learn that many very familiar foods and ingredients also contain powerful antifungal compounds that are super effective in fighting Candida and preventing candidiasis.
Compounds containing sulphur can have broad spectrum antifungal properties. Garlic is one of these sulphur-containing ingredients, and has been shown to effectively attack the candida in your body and also help maintain good digestive health. One of garlic’s most important antifungal agents is ajoene, an organosulfur compound that’s been shown to kill off a variety of fungal infections.
Although the antifungal properties of ajoene are well-established, its exact mechanisms are not. Scientists think that ajoene works like many other antifungals, by disrupting the cell walls of the Candida yeast cells which prevents them from functioning. One thing is sure though – when it comes to keeping Candida at bay, garlic really works.
Oregano is another kitchen cupboard staple that has powerful effects on Candida, with one study showing that it can completely inhibit its growth. Daily supplementation has been shown to be an incredibly effective preventative measure against candidiasis. Much of this effectiveness is thanks to two antimicrobial agents found in oregano named carvacrol and thymol. These agents react with the water in your bloodstream, dehydrating and killing Candida yeast cells.
Other studies have found that compounds present in oregano, such as terpenoid phenols carvacrol, thymol, and eugenol, are effective in dealing with Candida albicans that are resistant to many pharmaceutical antifungal drugs.
Thyme might just be the most powerful Candicidal plant out there. It contains the same two impressive compounds that are found in oregano, carvacrol and thymol, both of which have strong yeast and bacteria fighting properties. Studies have not only confirmed the positive effect of these magic compounds in thyme, but also suggest that when thyme and oregano are taken together, their effectiveness increases even further.
Cinnamon doesn’t just make your deserts tastier, several studies have confirmed the efficacy of this tasty spice in fighting Candida. One study in particular shows that Cinnamon may be able to completely rid the body of Candida altogether.
