3. What exactly does Candidate treat?

Candidate is a 100% safe, non-addictive, natural herbal remedy specifically formulated to reduce Candida overgrowth and promote the growth of healthy probiotic flora in the digestive tract. Formulated by our team of experts in natural medicine, Candidate has been used for many years to safely eradicate fungal overgrowth at its source, preventing topical Candida infections, such as thrush or yeast infections, and promoting the growth of healthy probiotic flora in the digestive tract to achieve lasting control of Candidiasis.

Candidate contains a selection of herbs known for their supportive ability to soothe the digestive tract, repair cell damage caused by Candida overgrowth and strengthen liver and immune functioning, thereby also improving overall systemic health.

4. What does Candidate contain?

Candidate is an herbal remedy containing:

Pau d'arco (Tabebuia impetiginosa) contains the active constituents Lapachol and beta-lapachone, which are also known as naphthaquinones. Laboratory tests have demonstrated that both Lapachol and beta-lapachone have anti-fungal properties as potent as ketoconazole, a common antifungal drug, used in the treatment of Candidiasis and yeast infections. Pau D'arco is not soluble in water and is best taken in tincture form where the active ingredients have been extracted medicinally in pharmaceutical ethanol. To prevent side effects, it is also important that the whole bark is used in the extraction process. This process has been followed at Native Remedies to bring you the strongest and most effective formula possible.

Marigold (Calendula officinalis) was used in ancient Greek, Roman, Arabic, and Indian cultures as an herb to support healthy detoxification. It has strong anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties and is also an effective liver tonic and improves overall systemic functioning and aiding in the removal of toxins from the body.

Lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus) Clinical studies have supported the positive effects of lemon grass in maintaining systemic health and the promotion of healthy, balanced levels of flora in the body. Lemon grass is known to stimulate cell regeneration and to soothe and treat intestinal infections, as well as pathogenic intestinal flora such as Candida albicans. It has known anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and can help to repair intestinal walls that have been damaged by Candida overgrowth ('leaky gut' syndrome).

5. Is Candidate approved by the FDA?

The FDA oversees all food and drug products. Since Candidate is an herbal dietary supplement, they fall under the ambit of the FDA. In 1994, the FDA set up guidelines for dietary supplements, including labeling requirements, and created the Dietary Supplement Health Education Act (DSHEA). Candidate follows all of DSHEA's guidelines. In addition, Native Remedies is a FDA-registered Food Facility, and all of our products are manufactured in a Pharmaceutical Graded, GMP-certified facility to guarantee the highest degree of consistency, reliability and potency.

9. When will improvement be seen?

Candidate gets to work immediately to eliminate Candida from the intestinal tract and to promote intestinal health, while eliminating toxins from the body. However, Candida is a very persistent organism and it may take some time, even months, before your system comes back into balance, depending on the severity of the problem. You can help Candidate to work faster by eliminating sugars, alcohol and refined carbohydrates from your diet and avoiding the use of oral antibiotics if possible.

14. What exactly is the Candida Diet and how does it help?

The Candida Diet is not intended for weight loss, but is specifically designed to combat Candida, Candidiasis and yeast infections. Overgrowth of Candida causes intense cravings for sugar and starch, which is why many people cannot follow a weight loss diet. Controlling levels of Candida in your digestive tract will help you to stick to your weight loss plan, while eliminating sugar and refined carbohydrates will help you lose weight. Read the entire Candida Diet for important tips and the diet suggestions.
