Many patients who come to me are taking numerous supplements, but they may not be of any particular benefit due to inefficient absorption from an inflamed and imbalanced digestive tract as a result of Candida and past antibiotic use. For many people, these expensive supplements are just passing through the digestive system but the nutrients are not being absorbed. While they aren’t harmful, they aren’t particularly helpful either. If you have felt benefit from taking certain supplements, then you may want to continue doing so. If you’re not sure, then chances are that you can do without the supplements for the time being. As you progress through the plan and restore balance to the digestive tract, you’ll be able to absorb more nutrients from your foods, as well as any supplements that you may be taking.
