Hey please suggest me best probiotic brand for yeast overgrowth ( candida ) and best brand multivitamin for fast recovery i'm on candida free diet thx?

No single best: There's no one best probiotic or multivitamin for everyone.I advise a heat-stable probiotic with multiple strains and at least 20 billion per capsule-good brands include Renew Life, Advanced Naturals,PB8 and Prescript Assist. See http://www.yeastinfectionadvisor.com/probioticsforyeast.html Also many good multi's including UltraNutrient by Pure Encapsulations and Garden of Life Mykind Men's Multi. ...Read more

Wrong question: No probiotic will help this. Seborrheic dermatitis in not cured, but responds to a variety of treatments. Candida is a yeast NORMALLY present which may proliferate with certain conditions, notably exposure to antibiotics.Some treatments help seborrheic dermatitis and also inhibit yeasts such as candida.These include azoles orally or topically, selenium sulfide, zinc pyrethione.Cortisones are also ...Read more

Best multivitamin or vitamin to get rid of candida overgroqth and scalp fungus i'm taking gnc probiotic 10 billion conplex ?

Best multivitamin or vitamin to get rid of candida overgroqth and scalp fungus i'm taking gnc probiotic 10 billion conplex ?

Scalp problems: Vitamins in this setting have only limited use. Best to see a doctor for proper evaluation. In this modern age, vitamin deficiencies are rare as long as you eat a balanced diet (and are not vegetarian). I advocate getting vitamins, minerals and micronutrients from food rather than wasting money on supplements. It's a big marketing scam. Try selenium sulphide shampoo while you wait for an apt. ...Read more

Antifungal: Next step would be taking an antifungal medication. Nystatin is effective and is by far the safest. If that doesn't work i'd have to ask you what do you mean by "candida problem"? If you truly have a chronic mucosal fungal infection and are not taking oral antibiotics i'd order tests for diabetes mellitus and immunodeficiency. Mucosal means the lining of the digestive tract &, in women, the vagina. ...Read more

Is it possible to have candida die off reaction from starting new probiotics? Have had drunk feeling several weeks. Started when I began probiotic.

Is it possible to have candida die off reaction from starting new probiotics? Have had drunk feeling several weeks. Started when I began probiotic.

Yes: Yes, certain probiotics may help to kill candida resulting in a Jarisch-Herxheimer or die-off reaction. This is caused by toxins from the dead yeast which can trigger inflammatory cytokines. Drinking more water, taking chlorella and/or charcoal, a good multivitamin, liposomal glutathione, milk thistle and natural anti-inflammatory agents like curcumin should help.Die-off symptoms lessen over time. ...Read more

Hey i'm taking gnc 10 bilion probiotic complex becoz yeast overgrowth.is taking gnc 25 bilion or 50 bilion is for fast recovery from candida overgrowt?

Hey i'm taking gnc 10 bilion probiotic complex becoz yeast overgrowth.is taking gnc 25 bilion or 50 bilion is for fast recovery from candida overgrowt?

No: That cannot be assumed to be true, because almost NONE of the probiotic supplements have scientific studies proving a particular supplement at particular doses can lead to "fast" recovery from a particular disease. "Yeast overgrowth" is very vague, because it does not say HOW MUCH overgrowth, nor even WHERE in the body the overgrowth is, or which TYPE of yeast. Usually, supplements are "untested". ...Read more

What amount million cfu in probiotics should I take for candida?

It depends: ...mostly on where your candida infection is. Candida is usually treated with an antifungal agent, such as ketoconazole, for example. Prrobiotics in and of themselves will not treat a Candida infection. I would speak to your primary care or GI doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

What probiotic is good for candida yeast gnc 50 ultra 50 probiotic complex or gnc multi strain probiotic conplex 10 billion cfus ? Plz suggest me thx.

Probably won't help: No probiotic is likely to be effective in treating a yeast infection. If that's what you have, you need treatment with a proper anti-yeast antibiotic. However, if you're talking about "systemic" candidasis, it's an urban myth; there is no such thing, and no treatment makes any difference. Discuss with a scientifically trained physician. Good luck! ...Read more
