Product Overview

  • Vegetarian Enzymes to Support Intestinal Health

The human digestive tract enjoys ideal health when the many microorganisms that live within it exist in reasonable balance. Maintaining this balance has been a goal of health practitioners for thousands of years. The high activity enzymes in the Candex formulation help to break down both processed and natural carbohydrate fractions while also breaking down otherwise indigestible fiber and supporting the natural balance desired in the gastrointestinal tract. It has been the first choice for discriminating consumers, health stores, and natural health practitioners for over 15 years.

Day one, one capsule. Day two, one capsule, twice daily. Day three and after, two capsules, twice daily. Always use between meals with at least 8 oz. of water. For maintenance, one capsule at bedtime.

Children: One-half capsule, twice daily.

Other Ingredients

Microcrystalline cellulose, l-leucine, vegetable capsule.

Seems to help a lot!
I have been suffering with candida for years. I've been taking high quality probiotics for at least ten years and eat low-glycemic foods, went on round after round of Diflucan (only works as long as you are taking it, plus it's hard on your liver) and while that did help keep candida to a manageable level (meaning, not in full blown rip my skin off mode), it wasn't enough to return my health to a good state. Candida had gone systemic on me and allergies got unresolvable along with lung dysfunction, muscle problems, joint problems, brain fog, digestive trouble as well. I suffered daily migraines and severe neck, shoulder and upper back pain too. I've been miserable... I am finally making progress thanks to two things: taking coconut oil daily (do beware of detoxing symptoms if your candida is systemic like mine--pencil yourself off the calendar until initial detoxing is over--took a whopping two months for me) and CANDEX--two pills in the a.m., two pills at bedtime, both times on empty tummy. Wow! This Candex stuff really does seem to work. I am so impressed and notice such a difference it's remarkable. The other reviewers helped me decide that I needed to give this stuff a try, so a very big thank you to those who took the time to share your success stories. Even the white stuff on my tongue, which I have been scrubbing off with my toothbrush 3 times a day since childhood (now age 45) is gone. I can't believe how impacted my life has been by this evil creature candida has been. It's got to be public enemy number one as far as I am concerned. My sincere gratitude to Pure Essence for making Candex. It's a life changer. Thank you thank you! And Iherb, you guys always do right. We always order with Iherb.

Please Read!
I bought this product last week because I was reading all the reviews and felt real hope. I decided today to look up more on the product and how it actually works and I got really disappointed when I read this: http://www.amazon.com/review/R1P5JG92I3YMM9/ref=cm_cr_pr_viewpnt#R1P5JG92I3YMM9 This isn't some bs review by a competitor or something. My name is Anna, I'm 30 years old and been dealing with Candida for 3 years (I suspect longer). I am suffering from this as much as you are but I don't want anyone else to waste their money. I read the article by this reviewer on Amazon but I also read the responses to the article and looked up: "yeast, cellulase, cell surface"on google. I found links and links all talking about how Yeast and Cellulase (the main component of this product) work together to produce Ethanol. Here's one: http://aem.asm.org/content/68/10/5136.abstract Here's a few more: http://ip.com/patfam/en/43630078 http://aem.asm.org/content/70/2/1207.short These are articles from The American Society for MicroBiology. I don't know enough about Yeast but I know I'm vulnerable to something that feels like it's never gonna be over! Please research and read more about this. I feel jibbed and don't want to continue this product. "As for me I have no financial stake in this or any other product. I only had a friend who took Candex and had a very bad reaction to it and she asked me to investigate Candex because she knows I have a scientific background, care about her welfare, and am not intimidated by words like "enzyme," "cellulase" and "amylase". And the more I looked into Candyx the more the "science" claimed by them appeared to me to be jibberish, scientific nonsense. I don't like people who use pseudo-science to prey and then profit off of other people's misery. That is my agenda. Other reviewers have their own. One of the top ranked positive reviews of Candex comes from a person into urine therapy, another into astrology. That's fine. You decide which reviewers you trust and share your biases. Candex isn't nontraditional medicine, it sells itself in the language of science (enzyme, cellulase, cell wall,...) but as far as I can tell, little "science" supports their claims."" This is a quote from the same reviewer debating someone.

Excellent indeed

Posted by Reviewer2324849 on May 25, 2016

My Candida yeast infection was the worst. I had almost full body rash and constant itchiness from top Of My head to my lower back. When I purchased Candex it came after five days of craziness. I bought this large bottle because two weeks would not be enough. Well, I'm in my third week and I must say thirst three days use was like blah feeling, but from day 5 into day 9 things changed for the better. Now at day 12 my skin's natural body oils came back as I used plain shea butter on my skin while it did the internal job. I have 12 days of product left. I got energy. No scratching other than an occasional slight rub. I sleep without itching. Tell customers to drink plenty of water. I relied on this product because I NEVER USE ANY PHARMACUETICAL DRUGS to correct anything. Candex exed out Candida Yeast quite well for me. I will definitely order it when I need it. Thanks iHerb.

It does what it should

Posted by 5287022380763826628 on Feb 11, 2016

I see many people are concerned about the candex breaking down starch carbs into sugar, I dont know if it does, I am just a normal guy with candida i would say. The case is that candex tells you to take it on empty stomach, so there will be minimal of carbs to serve the candida. I take 2 in the morning, wait maybe 2 hours before I eat breakfast with some mugs of water (same in the evening). It seems to work for me pretty good, I can tell by the times iv had to *take a dump*. I got this product recomended from a special health clinic here in Norway, and they are the pros so I believe them more than the other once saying anything else, cuz it has worked for other people before me and then I think it will for me too! Even with my severe case of candida albicans. I would give this product a 5, but since you have to take it on empty stomach it makes changes in your plans anyway. Hope this review will help other to deside if its *worth the risk*

Not impressed

Posted by 5553322548155116204 on Dec 12, 2015

I saw very nice reviews but eating a lot of coconut oil (I make a paste with cinnamon and honey) in the Wahls diet helps much better. Also Cinnamon is a huge antifungal and when I ate a few tablespoons of this paste I was feeling very heavy for the whole day and ccould not do much more then lie down and watch TV or study! Until after almost 8 hours I could go outside and do some fitness, so heavy was the digestion! So I don't think it is bad but weak in comparision.

I took two tablets per day (because of the cost), and I saw no improvement. There are other products out there with the same ingredients for about 55% of the cost.
