Candida Albicans - Fungal Form

Candida albicans is normally found on humans as a single-celled yeast-organism. This yeast and related species inhabit the intestinal tract and other moist tissues of the human body. Candida growth and numbers are normally kept in check by competing bacterias.

In persons with antibiotic sterilization of resident bacterias, and/or improper sugar regulation and metabolism, candida albicans can take on a multi-celled fungal form that can overgrow in relation to other microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract also called dysbiosis.

There are natural products that can help maintain healthy levels of candida by curbing candida overgrowth and some by reinnoculating symbiotic organisms: oregano, tea tree oil, cinnamon, cranberry juice powder, capryllic acid, grapefruit seed extract (GSE), and various probiotic formulas of symbiotic bacterias, to name just some.

When fungal-form candida pierces the body's protective linings causing inflammation, a disease condition called "candida infection" occurs.

When fungal-form candida pierces the body's protective linings and releases cell buds into the blood stream a disease condition called "systemic candida infection" occurs.

There are both topical and systemic prescription drugs that are used to treat candida infections: nystatin, nizoral, and diflucan being three commonly prescribed.

Yeast Avenger™ supplies naturally occurring food supplement ingredients with the following structure and function attributes to help the body maintain healthy levels of candida. Pursuant to the US "Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act" (DSHEA), this dietary supplement is not offered or intended for the treatment of fungal disease.

1. Yeast Avenger incorporates a transient bacteria "Bacillus Laterosporus " that has been demonstrated "in-vitro" to curb candida albicans growth when the two organisms are cultured together.

2. High dose biotin (1 mg/capsule) has been added to provide a nutritional supplement supporting the body's method of forming enzymes and hormones that properly regulate glucose/sugar.

3. Strains of symbiotic bifidobacterium and lactobacillus are introduced in a culture medium of chicory FOS that preferentially encourages their fermentation.

Bacillus Laterosporus BOD is a non-toxic, non-pathogenic, human-friendly strain of spore forming bacteria believed by some to utilize candida organisms for food.1

The naturally occurring spores of Bacillus Laterosporus survive the stomach, bloom in the intestines, and have been demonstrated "in-vitro" to have a curbing effect on candida growth. Introduction of Bacillus Laterosporus to an established "in-vitro" candida albicans culture has been shown to have 96%+ less candida at the end of seven days than in controls without the bacteria .1

Biotin is a B vitamin-like nutrient that is normally produced within the human intestinal tract in adequate quantities when bifidobacterium and other symbiotic bacterias are the dominate cultures in the intestines2.

Eating habits, use of broad spectrum antibiotics, and even drinking chlorinated water may have a detrimental effect on the health and dominance of friendly bacteria cultures in the intestinal tract.

Biotin is essential to the formation process of several enzymes and hormones produced in the pancreas, including insulin3. If a person is suffering long term candida overgrowth and intestinal dysbiosis, it is possible they may also be short of biotin due to a lacking in symbiotic bacteria fermentation producing the nutrient.

It has been postulated by some that biotin directly controls whether or not candida is in single-cell or overgrowing fungal form. The published science clearly shows biotin does not have a direct effect on form of at least one candida albicans strain4.

What the experiments designed to test the biotin-yeast hypothesis have demonstrated in the referenced study is that the concentration of simple sugars in the culture medium is the only input variable to directly determine the form candida cells will take4. Below a certain sugar concentration the yeast remain single-celled. When sugar concentration rises above a certain threshold, the organism becomes multi-celled.

We trust the many anecdotes reporting that high dose biotin supplementation (1-5 mg per day) has had a positive impact on a person's ability to control candida overgrowth.

However, we believe biotin's effect on yeast form and growth must be indirect, resulting at least in part from an improvement in the human's ability to regulate sugar levels. For those successful controlling candida with biotin, the nutrient might ultimately be being utilized by the body in reducing sugar concentrations in the locations where candida tend to naturally grow.

Chicory FOS (fructooligosaccharides) have been demonstrated in vitro and in human test subjects to preferentially encourage the growth of bifidobacterium species5.

The goal of inoculating bifidobacterium and lactobacillus strains along with chicory FOS culture medium is to help return these highly symbiotic bacteria strains back to dominate fermentation status in the intestines.

Suggested use of Yeast Avenger ™ is to take 1-3 capsules per day, upon awakening, 20 minutes before eating.

First time users of Yeast Avenger™ with candida dysbiosis can sometimes experience a yeast "die-off" reaction from a sudden increase in candida organism mortality. This die-off has been significantly reduced in the current formulation of Yeast Avenger that includes Lactobacillus acidophiillus DDS-1 (a product of Nebraska Cultures) as this bacteria is able to metabolize the yeast toxin acetaldehyde to non-toxic acetate.

Typically the symptomatic die-off period, if it is going to occur, completes in the first four days when taking 2-3 capsules of Yeast Avenger per day. People benefiting from the product generally feel better after a week.

We recommend taking Yeast Avenger for a minimum of 30 days as a dietary supplement. One bottle will supply one person with a 30 day supply when taken three capsules per day.

Yeast Avenger™ capsules can be opened and the contents allowed to slowly dissolve on the tongue before swallowing - the taste is mildly sweet and pleasant, reminiscent of melted cotton candy.

Capsule contents can also be dissolved in a small amount of lukewarm, chlorine free water, and the water used as an external soak, wash, or douche.
