Candida Force
Detox Essentials
Vital Flora
Candida Force: Extra virgin olive oil, gelatin from fish (tilapia), glycerin, water.
Detox Essentials: Vegetable capsule (Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose), silicon dioxide.
Vital Flora: Inulin (derived from chicory root), Vcaps vegetarian capsule, and L-leucine.
Note: Nystatin – doesn’t work systemically against Candida. Has known side-effects and drug interactions. Causes development of resistant strains.
Contains sugar.
Antiquated diet based on an attempt to “starve” the Candida of sugars and complex carbs. When Candida is deprived of food sources, it goes systemic.
Notes: Like many herbs, these contain tannins that have fungistatic properties. This can inhibit fungus, but not eliminate it. Additionally, the greasewood (chapparal) has to be used cautiously in people with kidney dysfunction, gout, rheaumatoid arthritis, and liver problems.
Prescription strength antifungals can promote development of resistant strains, severe side-effects, and drug interactions, Can promote further long-term imbalances.
Contains sugar.Sucrose, mannitol, glacial acetic acid, and sodium hydroxide.
Enzymes designed to affect the Candida cell wall membrane. Not known to work systemically. Intestinal affect is questionable. Can affect other microbes in the GI Tract causing other imbalances.
Contains enzymes which have not shown to be effective against Candida albicans fungus: Cellulase, Hemicellulase, Amylase, Glucoamylase , Invertase (All Vegetarian)
Black Walnut, Garlic, Pau d’Arco, Grapefruit seed extract, Oregon Grape root, Horsetail, Stinging Nettle, Bladderwrack, Marshmallow root, Spirulina. Like many herbs, these contain tannins that have fungistatic properties. This can inhibit fungus, but not eliminate it.
Echinacea purpurea, Astragalus, Ginger, Cinnamon, Gentian, Fennel
1 strain: Lactobacillus Sporogenes 120,000 CFU
Vitamin A, Biotin, Prostease, Lipase, Cellulase
Caprylic Acid (from Magnesium Caprylate) 500 mg, Pau D’Arco 300 mg, Black Walnut 300 mg, Oregano Oil
Biotin, Cellulose, Rice Flour, Gum Arabic, Garlic, Olive Leaf, Cat’s Claw Root, Wormwood Herb, Silica and Magnesium Stearate
Lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus), Pot marigold (Calendula officinalis), Pau d’arco bark (Tabebuia impetiginosa)
Black Walnut Hull 200 mg
Slippery Elm Bark 200 mg, Goldenseal Root 180 mg
Grapefruit Seed 400 mg, Bearberry Leaf 150 mg, HPMC (vegetable capsule),Rice flour
CandiGone I: Uva Ursi, Garlic , Magnesium Caprylate (Caprylic Acid) 75 mg , Citricidal Extract, Pau D’Arco Root Bark, Undecylenate (Undecylenic Acid) 75 mg, Barberry Root, Neem Leaf, Olive Leaf, Berberine Sulphate. CandiGone II: Oregano Leaf, Orange Peel, Oregon Grape Root, Pau D’Arco Root Bark, Cinnamon Bark, Clove Bud, Peppermint LeafUndecylenic acidsalts are much less effective in the intestinal tract and systemically, and only slightly more effective in the stomach due to pH considerations. Not recommended for intestinal or systemic infections. Caprylic acid can have toxicity associated with it. The other herbs used are excellent for inhibiting, but not eliminating fungal candida. Systemic effects may be very minimal.
Vegetable capsules (vegetable fiber and water) and vegetable cellulose
Caprylic acid is a natural antifungal that does help with Candida. It does not appear to provide long-term relief and has only 1/6 the effectiveness of undecenoic acid (found in Candida Force). Caprylic acid can cause liver and kidney toxicity.
Various other ingredients depending on the manufacturer. Caprystatin contains: Cellulose,Magnesium Stearate and Silicon Dioxide. Now Foods contains: gelatin, glycerin, water. The Vitamin Shoppe: Gelatin, rice flour, magnesium stearate, purified water.
Prescription strength antifungals can promote development of resistant strains. Severe liver toxicity, side-effects, and drug interactions. Can promote further long-term imbalances.
Contains sugar.Sucrose, sodium citrate dihydrate, citric acid anhydrous, sodium benzoate,titanium dioxide, colloidal silicon dioxide, xanthan gum,FD&C Red No.40, aluminum lake dye, povidone, phosphate anhydrous, croscarmellose sodium, and magnesium stearate.
Relies on the antifungal effect of Bacilis subtilis. B subtilis can also kill beneficial bacteria leading to more intestinal and systemic imbalances. B. subtilis is not a normal part of human flora and is the basis for several antibiotics. E. faecalis can infect other organs and tissues of the body.
4 strains: Bacilus coagulans (500 Million CFU), Enterococcus faecalis (500 Million CFU), Bifidobacterium longum (500 Million CFU), Lactobacillus acidophilus (50 Million CFU). Daily dosage (not including B subtilis): 1.55 billion CFU’s
Refined Yeast Powder, Dietary Fiber as Galactomannan, Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), Beta Cyclodextrin, Erythritol, Lactose, Lemon Juice Powder, Silica, Canola Oil.Canola oil can turn rancid. Yeast powders may cause cross-reactivity.
Is a natural antifungal, but not strong enough to eliminate fungal Candida. May provide symptomatic relief.
Mild antifungal effectiveness. Better as an antiparasitic. May affect beneficial bacterial flora of the intestinal tract.
Grapefruit seed extract (GSE) is a liquid derived from the seeds, pulp, and white membranes of grapefruit.
Prescription strength antifungals can promote resistance in the body.
Contains sugar. Alcohol, sucrose, purified water, glycerin, sodium citrate, magnesium aluminum silicate, flavors, saccharin sodium, xanthan gum, benzaldehyde, edetate calcium disodium, methylparaben, and propylparaben.
Natural antifungal that can provide symptomatic relief, but does not eliminate systemic fungal Candida.
No known antifungals. Primarily a colon cleanser.
Natural antifungal that can provide symptomatic relief, but does not eliminate systemic fungal Candida.
Relies on the antifungal effect of Bacilis subtilis. B. subtilis can also kill beneficial bacteria. B. subtilis is not a normal part of the human flora and is the basis for several antibiotics. B. subtilis has been associated with food poisoning.
Ascorbyl palmitate as a filler and probable flow agent.
Relies on the antifungal effect of Bacilis subtilis. B. subtilis can also kill beneficial bacteria. B. subtilis is not a normal part of the human flora and is the basis for several antibiotics. B. subtilis has been associated with food poisoning.
2 strains: Lactobacillus Coagulans (200 million CFU), Bacillus Subtilis (25 million CFU) Enterococcus Faecalis (25 million CFU). Daily dosage (not including B subtilis): 225 million CFU’s
