- Pau d'arco (Tabebuia impetiginosa) contains the detoxification constituents Lapachol and Beta-lapachone, which are also known as naphthaquinones. This herb has been studied for its potential to support antioxidant activation and maintain healthy levels of flora in the body. Laboratory tests have demonstrated that both Lapachol and beta-lapachone have anti-fungal properties as potent as ketoconazole, a common antifungal drug, used in the treatment of Candidiasis and yeast infections.
- Marigold (Calendula officinalis) was used in ancient Greek, Roman, Arabic, and Indian cultures as an herb to support healthy detoxification. It has strong anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties and is also an effective liver tonic, thereby improving overall systemic functioning and aiding in the removal of toxins from the body.
- Lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus) The freshly cut and partially dried leaves are used and are the source of the essential oil. Clinical studies have supported the positive effects of lemon grass in maintaining systemic health and the promotion of healthy, balanced levels of flora in the body. Lemon grass is known to stimulate cell regeneration and to soothe and treat intestinal infections, as well as pathogenic intestinal flora such as Candida albicans. It has known anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and can help to repair intestinal walls that have been damaged by Candida overgrowth ('leaky gut' syndrome).
I can definitely recommend Candidate to anyone who has these symptoms of Candida …My life is different, I’m not tired all the time, no more thrush (terrible!) and going to the doctor.—Carla
What is Candidate?

Formulated by our team of experts in natural medicine, Candidate has been used for many years to safely eradicate fungal overgrowth at its source, preventing topical Candida infections, such as thrush or yeast infections, and promoting the growth of healthy probiotic flora in the digestive tract to achieve lasting control of Candidiasis.
Candidate contains a selection of herbs known for their supportive ability to soothe the digestive tract, repair cell damage caused by Candida overgrowth and strengthen liver and immune functioning, thereby also improving overall systemic health.

The natural way
Many different types of anti-fungal medicines are prescribed to treat Candidiasis, including Amphotericin B, fluconazole, nystatin and ketoconazole. Like many other prescription drugs, these often come with unwanted side effects, but may be necessary in the case of severe Candidiasis or where all other treatment options have failed.
There are many natural ways to support the immune system such as diet, adequate sleep, moderate exercise, and relaxation. pH and digestive flora can also be kept at appropriate levels, thus controlling Candidiasis, by avoiding excess grains, dairy, sugar, dietary yeast and most processed foods in the diet. Raw vegetables should also be included in a healthy eating plan.
However, today’s modern lifestyle is filled with fast food, pollution, and stress. Over time, these factors can sometimes affect the body, particularly the body’s natural ability to keep digestive flora in check.
Acidophilus is a probiotic culture that is present in most yogurts (especially organic sugar free yogurt). This probiotic culture contains plenty of probiotics and can help to boost the immune system and maintain normal flora in the system, limiting excessive Candida overgrowth in the digestive tract.
Natural remedies have been used for thousands of years to support the immune system, healthy balance of pH and balanced probiotics in the body, thereby treating Candidiasis. In more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom.

How has Candidate helped others?
Candidate has been used to reduce Candida overgrowth in many people. Here is what some of them have to say:
"Candidate has helped me a lot with a whole range of symptoms that I did not know were related to Candida infection. I had the whole lot - depression, joint pain, gas, heartburn, itches in all the wrong places! When I read the symptoms I knew I had it bad so I took Candidate, Immunity Plus and also went on the Candida Diet for a month. I am eating normally now except for sugar and junk food and I feel like a young man again. I have started gardening again and I can walk upright when I wake up in the morning which is a real miracle for me!"
"I have been up and down to so many doctors for recurring thrush infections. Each time I was successfully treated but each time it came back again. I also had a lot of wind and burping after my food which was very embarrassing and I used to become anxious whenever I had to eat in public. Only when I read your information did I realize that Candida was the problem. Since I have taken a course of Candidate I have not been to the doctor once with thrush and I no longer burp the way I did. I can truly say that this product has changed my life!"
"I can definitely recommend Candidate to anyone who has these symptoms of Candida infection as I had for years and did not know it. Please excuse my English I am Italian but I really had to let you know how well it worked for me. My life is different, I’m not tired all the time, no more thrush (terrible!) and going to the doctor. My asthma is also better and I can breathe for a change again!"
“I was very impressed with results by using your product combined with proper diet. I've never felt as good as I do now.”
"I had all the symptoms you list but the main thing was overweight and I could NEVER stick to a diet. All I thought of all day was food and I could NOT resist anything with sugar in it! I used to feel guilty and worthless and weak, but now I know it was the Candida craving the sugar as you explained. I have been taking Candidate for four weeks and I can stay away from the sugar for the first time in my life!! I can't say THANK YOU enough! PS - why don't more doctors know about this!?"
