What is Candida Albicans?
Candida albicans is a yeast like fungus that lives in the mucous membranes of the digestive system, normally in a healthy balance with other bacteria. However poor diet and lifestyle habits can disrupt the balance causing an overgrowth of candida a condition called Candidiasis. Candidiasis often occurs when the body is under greater stress than usual including using antibiotics, painkillers, pregnancy or the contraceptive pill. Candida flourishes with sugar and yeast containing foods and symptoms can become worse with a diet high in refined carbohydrates (bread, lollies, sweets, cakes). A high amount of candida can lead to other health problems in the body often with very subtle symptoms to begin with.
