Candicid Forte supports optimal GI microflora balance through a blend of nutrients, natural botanical extracts and fatty acids.
Promotes Healthy Microbial Balance
Helps Maintain Gastro-Intestinal Comfort
Provides Nutrients that Increase Antioxidant Protection
Enhances Immune Function
Gastrointestinal health is directly affected by factors like poor diet and a stressful lifestyle. The prevalence of refined sugars and carbohydrates and lack of fiber in Western diets have been directly linked to changes in the intestinal and colonic environments. Since more than 70% of the body’s immune system resides in the gut, establishing a healthy microbial balance is critical in reducing immune challenges and maintaining inflammatory balance.Candicid Forte provides a blend of nutrients, potent botanicals and essential oils to promote healthy microbial balance and immune support. Formulated with the goal of building a healthy gastrointestinal (GI) flora, Candicid Forte includes biotin, a nutrient that inhibits yeast from converting into the more aggressive fungal form. In addition, sodium caprylate is included to disrupt the metabolism of Candida and create a hostile environment for colonization. It also includes potent botanicals, such as berberine HCl, Pau d’Arco, oregano, rosemary, cinnamon and ginger, to sooth the GI tract, provide potent antioxidant support, and ensure microbial balance.
2 capsules three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
Severe vitamin C deficiency has been known for many centuries as scurvy. While scurvy is rare in the majority of today's population, current lifestyle factors raise the requirement for vitamin C. Adequate intake and retention is necessary to maintain healthy vitamin C status in the body.
Research has shown vitamin C to have a strong relationship with cardiovascular health. Overall, vitamin C supplementation has a significant impact on maintaining healthy blood fats. In addition, cross-sectional studies have indicated that plasma vitamin C concentration helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels in both men and women.
Immune Function & Antioxidant Support
Vitamin C supplementation has been studied for more than six decades for its role in supporting the body during immune challenges. It has been shown to stimulate both the production and function of white blood cells, especially neutrophils, lymphocytes and phagocytes. These immune guardians have been shown to accumulate high concentrations of vitamin C, which can protect these cell types from oxidative damage. Through its potent antioxidant functions, vitamin C has been shown to protect white blood cells from self-inflicted oxidative damage.
Connective Tissue Health
Vitamin C’s role in collagen formation makes it vital to maintaining skin, capillary, gum, joint and skeletal health. The antioxidant properties of vitamin C and its role in collagen synthesis make vitamin C vital to skin health. Keratinocytes have a high capacity for vitamin C transport, to compensate for limited blood flow to the epidermis. Vitamin C’s role in normal tissue repair and recovery may include promoting keratinocyte differentiation, stimulating the formation of the epidermal barrier and re-establishing the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis. Higher intakes of dietary vitamin C have been correlated with a decreased risk of dry skin.
