Product Overview


  • Non-GMO
  • 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.

Suggested Use

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, pullulan (vegetable capsule).

Guarantee: Candex does not contain artificial colorings or flavorings, GMOs, sugar, soy, yeast, dairy, gluten, wheat, or shellfish and is suitable for vegetarians.


Storage: Keep tightly closed at room temperature.

Caution: This product contains enzymes. If you experience abdominal discomfort including bloating, gas, indigestion, cramps, and irregularity, discontinue use immediately. Please keep all supplements out of children's reach.

iHerb Customer Reviews
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.

Great for sugar cravings and candida support!

Posted by 5721920982083837472 on Sep 30, 2016

WOW, this product has definitely been the first thing that has cured my sugar cravings and helped combat intestinal candida with ZERO die off symptoms . When you first start taking it you might notice some serious tummy rumbling and mild "clenching" type feeling in the abdomen, but after a few days even this seems to subside. The biggest plus for this product is that it reduces, if not completely irradiates sugar cravings which makes sticking to your anti-candida diet so much easier. This from a person who pretty much couldn't live without chocolate bars and ice cream everyday, now they sit in my fridge for weeks without me even caring. However, it's not a magic pill, if you are suffering from sugar binges and/or systematic candida, you will need to treat both of these problems in addition. You might want to use this on a rotation with your anti-fungals, but using on an empty stomach is key, otherwise the enzymes are just breaking down the food in your stomach, not the nasties in your gut.

Excellent For My Candida

Posted by 5420154838587617848 on Sep 08, 2016

Before buying this product I did some research on various products that help with Candida problems. I decided this one was the best since there were no side effects of dead Candida residue. I started with 4 pills/day (2 in the morning and 2 in the evening. Now I combine these pills with the product that can also be bought at I-Herb, named Symbiotics (Candida Balance, with Colostrum Plus and Probiotics) and which also has an anti-Candida effect. I take 2 pills of Symbiotics in the morning and 2 pills of Candex in the evening. For now it works fine, as long as I avoid Candida friendly food as often as I can.

Basic Enzymes

Posted by 5099277455072314917 on Aug 30, 2016

Wasn't overly satisfied with the product. I realize I have some major yeast issues, but after a full bottle I noticed very little change. I have switched brands and feel much better on them.
