An effective probiotic against thrush and candida yeast infections

Specific strains of probiotics stimulate the immune system to cut down the extent and duration of a candida yeast overgrowth.

They can therefore tackle candidiasis problems in the mouth ie. oral thrush. And candidiasis in the vaginal tract.

Research shows that different probiotic strains have widely different anti-microbial effectiveness against thrush, and candida yeast infections. Particularly effective, according to university studies, are  Lactobacillus rhamnosus (L. rhamnosus), Lactobacillus plantarum (L. plantarum), Lactobacillus casei (L. casei) and Lactobacillus acidophilus (L. acidophilus) DDS-1.

These strains are all in MicroBiotic Plus – which gives you 7.5 billion live ‘good’ bacteria per capsule.

How MicroBiotic Plus works

The probiotics in MicroBiotic Plus help replace the beneficial bacteria that were reduced when the Candida overgrowth began. They additionally help inhibit its further growth through anti-fungal compounds secreted by the good bacteria.

There are other health benefits. When the bacteria in your gut become unbalanced, it can lead to IBS and digestive issues, including constipation, diarrhoea, gas, cramps and bloating. Tiredness is a common side-effect.

By helping to re-balance the ratio of good to harmful bacteria in your gut, MicroBiotic Plus can improve overall digestive health.

Use multi-strain MicroBiotic Plus daily and add to its effectiveness by cutting down on sugary foods, alcohol and blue cheeses which help feed harmful bacteria.

More about Candida

Candida albicans is a yeast fungus and whilst usually harmless, it can 'over-grow' in the mouth, throat or vagina. Infections can spread to infect other organs. Normally your gut flora have a natural resistance to Candida, but this can be reduced during or after antibiotics, which can disrupt bacterial populations - a condition called dysbiosis - or by a compromised immune system or sometimes in cases of diabetes.

Candidiasis is linked to several other conditions, including: chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome and allergies.

By reducing the pH of the vaginal tract, making it more acidic, probiotic bacteria also make it a hostile environment for yeast growth.
