Restore Vitality – Candida Cleanse

Candida albicans bacteriaSupplementation and diet play a key role in avoiding and eliminating candida, the fungal yeast which lives in your gut and is susceptible to overgrowth.

An imbalance in the yeast can effect our health with headaches, fatigue, brain fog, digestive issues and autoimmune disorders. Certain factors literally feed the fungus, causing an overgrowth of yeast in the body.

Stress, foods rich in sugar and yeast, as well as  antibiotics can contribute to too much candida. The top 4 Foods to avoid include:

  1. Sugar + sugar alternatives
  2. Bread + Grains
  3. Dairy
  4. Alcohol

In addition to eliminating foods which feed the candida, literally allowing the fungus to grow, a cleanse may be necessary to  kill the overgrowth.  Candida may present symptoms of fatigue, headaches or sweet cravings.  Thrush, a yeast infection of the mouth,  is also a common symptom.

UF Candida EX is an effective formula to help eliminate candida. The blend of nutrients is rich in minerals, enzymes and herbs to stop feeding the overgrowth and restore your wellness.

What’s the Difference between Probiotics and Prebiotics?

Probiotic (prebiotic) foodsProbiotics are live microorganisms found in “friendly” bacteria, yeast or fungi, and help to improve vitality and  gastrointestinal tract health.  In order for the probiotics to survive in the bowel, you need to feed them prebiotics, non-digestible food fibres enabling good bacteria to stick to the bowel wall. This stimulates probiotic growth, promoting overall good health.

Prebiotics can alter the composition of organisms in the gut providing nourishment to the ascending colon. The effects have been beneficial to inflammatory bowel disease and Crohn’s disease.

Prebiotic-rich foods include bananas,  legumes, soy beans, chick peas, lentils, Jerusalem artichokes, whole oats, wheat, barley, garlic, flaxseeds,  tomatoes and green vegetables and asparagus. Supplementary fibres such as psyllium, pectin, guar gum and slippery elm are also contain prebiotics.

Universal Formula’s daily complex, Quint-Essence, is rich in prebiotics, greens, enzymes, minerals and vitamins.
