Product Overview

  • Vegetarian Enzymes to Support Intestinal Health
  • Dietary 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, vegetable capsule.

Guarantee: Candex does not contain artificial colorings or flavorings, GMO's, sugar, soy, yeast, dairy, corn, gluten or wheat. It is suitable for vegetarians.


Storage: Keep tightly closed at room temperature.

Caution: Please keep all supplements out of children's reach.

In order to thrive, yeast must be fed!

Posted by Reviewer2649896 on Nov 01, 2009

I was a hardcore sugar addict, and when I got the craving, it was fun-sized candy, bread with honey, 2:00 a.m.-- didn't matter. My diet was mostly poor-quality starches. I got the small bottle to try Candex out and let me tell you, THIS STUFF WORKS. I took ONE CAP to start on an empty stomach at night and my guts were rumbling all night (not painful, just noisy). When I got up the next a.m., my stomach was flatter and I had a dizzy headache. (I removed one star from my review because I did get die off symptoms for 2-3 days and it SUCKED!) I omitted dairy and overt sugar foods for the next three days and took Candex as the bottle stated. My sugar cravings DISAPPEARED in two days. No exaggeration. No candy in the house. Nothing. Sweetened my coffee with coconut milk and xylitol, but that was pretty much it for me. It's been three weeks and still no cravings. I had a small square of chocolate last night and didn't freak. Just had it after dinner and kept moving. Oh, and I lost 5 pounds just from getting rid of the sugar (no exercise, meal changes, etc.). I'm going to reorder just to have it around for any 'sugar flareups.' Try the small bottle first, and good luck.

Posted by Reviewer1310871 on Jan 02, 2007

I posted the review above and I just wanted to leave an update...I took Candex for 6 months and I don't have to take it anymore.Yay! I have been off for about 2 or more months and I haven't had any infections or flar-ups since. And Dr's say that candidiasis and vaginitis are incurables, Hah !!!

Pure Essence, Candex, Yeast Management Finally a Product that Works!

Posted by Reviewer1613721 on Aug 28, 2010

I have a medicine cabinet full of products and this is the first product that actually does what it is supposed to do. And the best part is, you do not suffer from die off and feel horrible after taking this product. I only took one a day for three days and I felt cured. It's a miracle! Now I just take one every couple of days for maintenance. Worth every penny. I will continue to take this product.

I Just Love This

Posted by Reviewer1867644 on Oct 13, 2007

This is just fantastic. No die off syndrome. But I rotate the yeast fighters that I take. Of the other yeast fighters, this is the best because as my yeasts are being killed and I can still have peak energy to do and finish my work!

Easy on your system

Posted by Reviewer1852133 on Jun 11, 2008

As a female cyclist, I had trouble with recurrent yeast infections due to the necessity of wearing close-fitting, non-breathable clothing. Thinking that this may be an indicator of a larger problem, I tried Candex in conjunction with a multi-probiotic. Past experiences with probiotics have not been pleasant, but there were no discernable digestive upsets. So far I have not had any trouble with yeast infection. With Summer temperatures well under way, I will be able to test its effectiveness over several months.
