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