Learn More About Candex

  1. Can Children Use Candex?
    Candex is safe for everyone. For children, use one-half capsule, twice daily, for each 40 pounds of body weight. For ages 14 and up, adult recommendations may be followed.
  2. When Will I Be Completely Yeast-Free?
    No one will ever be completely yeast free. Indeed, most experts believe that small amounts of yeast are beneficial. The goal is to keep populations beneath levels that cause problems.
  3. How Long Should I Use Candex?
    Two capsules of Candex in the morning, an hour before breakfast, and two at bedtime, at least two hours after eating (always use with eight ounces of water) normally produce profound improvement in 7 to 30 days. The time needed for maximum benefit, however, varies, because we each have:candex image
    • Different amounts of yeast to overcome
    • Different levels of immune support
    • Different levels of healthy probiotics
    • Different dietary habits
    • Varying levels of stress
    The longer you have had a yeast problem, the longer you will likely need to use Candex.When you’re feeling as well as you think you should, cut back from four capsules per day to three for a week; then, to two per day for another week; and finally to one a day. If you continue to feel well, continue with one capsule per day. If you begin to feel worse as you cut back, use four capsules daily for another month, and then cut back again. There is no “one size fits all” solution for candida. When you have attained maximum benefit, you will be able to use one capsule per day without regressing. Sugar, antibiotics, birth control pills, chlorinated water or stress may trigger renewed outbreaks of candida.
  4. Should I Use Probiotics With Candex?
    We strongly recommend using a high quality probiotic supplement with candex. Since there are many brands of both high and low quality probiotics on the market, it is important to let your retailer guide you to a brand he or she trusts.We believe a combination of lactobacilli acidophilus, helveticus, lactis and salivarius, along with bifidobacterium bifidum and streptococcus thermophilus is ideal for those with candida. Our own product provides this blend.
  5. Have Clinical Studies Been Done On Candex?
    Laboratory studies show that Candex inhibits the growth of candida albicans in vitro.A clinical study of 52 patients showed that Candex is safe, effective, well tolerated, and causes no significant side effects. The physicians that conducted this study concluded that “Candex should be the first choice for treatment of enteric candida in our patient population.” Candex is recommended by physicians, nurses, natural health practitioners, health clinics, and health food retailers throughout the country.
  6. When Will I Start Feeling Better?
    As with all things, individual results will vary. However, nearly everyone notes substantial improvements within one to four weeks. While die-off reactions do not occur with Candex, a few people may experience nausea, a “burning sensation” in the stomach, or abdominal cramping. This is because the enzymes may aggravate pre-existing disturbances in the gastro-intestinal tract. If this occurs, we suggest using one third of a capsule, twice daily, emptied into eight ounces of warm water, and building up from there. Using a bit of non-fiber foods (meat or dairy) may also help. To minimize any sensitivity to Candex, we suggest one capsule your first day, two your second day, and so on, until you reach the full, four capsule per day regimen.
  7. How Much Enzyme Activity Do I Need?
    During the six years we have used fiber digesting enzymes against candida, we have found about 200,000 daily units of cellulase and hemicellulase to be ideal. Candex provides 208,000 total units of daily cellulase and hemicellulase activity.
