- Vegetarian Enzymes to Support Intestinal Health
- Enzyme Supplement
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.
Microcrystalline cellulose, l-leucine, pullulan (vegetable capsule).

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.
I had severe, chronic Candida overgrowth. I took Candex twice daily as recommended and followed the diet rigorously. It took me about 6 weeks to have noticeable improvement. Many supplements also contain cellulose as part of the capsule or tablet. It's important that you don't take those with Candex (just like food, take Candex 2 hours before or 1 hour afterwards) because Candex will digest that cellulose instead of the Candida cells

This stuff gives me hot flashes and does not seem to do anything.

This is my 2nd purchase. I use this product off and on to control fungus. Seems to work.

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

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*
