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.

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.

I have horrific insomnia and although I bought this as a Candida treatment, I have the absolute BEST SLEEP with this. At first I thought it was a one-off thing, but I've been on these now for over a month and I have stopped all sleep medicines! The only thing I add is a sub-lingual spray of Melatonin 1.5mg per spray. If I wake up, I just take a little spray. I take 2 at night on an empty stomach (2 hours after eating) along with my probiotics, the melatonin spray and I'm off to a peaceful sleep!

Big tummy pain

Posted by Reviewer1437851 on Jun 03, 2011

So, this may be a great product for most, but I thought it was important to mention that I had very bad stomach pain with the first dose. I checked online and there are others that have this reaction to Candex. So, start slowly just in case!

It works

Posted by Reviewer3154240 on Sep 06, 2011

Surprisingly, this product actually works. So far I have been taking it for the last three weeks steady and have seen a marked improvement. I noticed a difference in as little as 3 days of taking it as directed (2 caps twice a day). I have tried femdophilus , probiotics, diflucan (did not work at all), and other creams. Those things did not work as completely as this product does. I would not have believed it if I had not taken a chance and I'm glad I did. I take it on an empty stomach in the morning and right before bed. I'm going to decrease how much I take in the upcoming weeks, but will still be taking it at least once a day indefinitely.

Seems helpful.

Posted by Reviewer1852674 on Jun 03, 2010

Seemed to re-balance my digestive system and enhance assimilation. I settled on only one at night after a week of one morning and night. As always excellent iHerb service and a competitive price.

I have been using this product for about 2 months. I have had a chronic yeast infections for the past year and have tried everything traditional medicine has to offer and nothing has worked at all!!!! However, I see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel!!! Since using this product the frequency has diminished greatly! Not totally gone yet, however the intensity and frequency is in no way comparable to what it was! I plan to use this product until I am completely free of the yeast overgrowth!!
