Do you have candida overgrowth?
We often hear the word yeast infection which mostly refers to the Candida albicans fungus, it is the most common yeast in our gastrointestinal system.
Candida is a (commensal) fungus that aids with nutrient absorption and digestion when in optimal levels in the body. There are certain conditions that are ripe for Candida albicans to grow out of control, and it breaks down the wall of the intestine and penetrates the bloodstream – releasing toxic by-products into the body and causing leaky gut and candidiasis. Also, it can be triggered by a decrease in beneficial bacteria in the gut, overuse of broad-spectrum antibiotics, oral corticosteroids, oral contraceptives, diabetes, weakened immune system, and poor dietary habits that shoot up the candida.
