Candex, Yeast Management System, 120 caps, Pure Essence Labs
Candex helps balance our natural gut flora.
The body is a miraculous system that does a great job keeping the naturally co-existing bacteria, fungus and viruses working in harmony most of the time, but sometimes that balance is upset. Maintaining a healthy balance in the body through digestive support has been a practice used by health practitioners throughout the world for several thousand years. Today we know a lot more about using enzymes to rebalance the different organisms throughout the body. Good bacteria can get overwhelmed when the body doesn’t process sugars and other carbohydrates well enough. Probiotics can help, but sometimes they are not enough. Candex™ can support a healthy balance of flora in the body.*
Candex, the leader in fiber digesting enzymes.
For over 10 years, Candex™ has provided the most potent blend of plant-based, fiber-digesting enzymes available. It’s so popular that other companies have tried to copy the Candex™ formula. In attempts to appear unique some companies have added protease (protein-digesting) enzymes to the fiber-digesting enzyme formula of Candex™. We believe this is counterproductive because protease enzymes may compromise the health of probiotics, which are the friendly flora that are essential for good intestinal health.*

The importance of healthy gut flora, also known as the gut microbiota, cannot be overstated. Gut flora refers to the trillions of microorganisms, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other microbes, that reside in the gastrointestinal tract.
Here are some key reasons why a healthy gut flora is important:
Digestion and Nutrient Absorption: Gut flora plays a crucial role in breaking down and digesting certain types of carbohydrates, fibers, and complex molecules that our own digestive enzymes cannot process. This process helps extract nutrients, vitamins, and minerals from the food we consume, making them available for absorption into our bloodstream.
Immune System Support: A significant portion of our immune system is located in the gut. The gut flora helps regulate and balance the immune response, preventing overreactions and promoting appropriate immune reactions when necessary. A healthy gut flora acts as a protective barrier against harmful bacteria and pathogens, reducing the risk of infections and supporting overall immune function.
Mental Health and Brain Function: There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that the gut-brain axis plays a critical role in mental health and brain function. The gut flora produces various neurotransmitters and compounds that influence mood, behavior, and cognitive function. An imbalance in gut flora has been associated with conditions like depression, anxiety, and neurodegenerative diseases.
Maintenance of Intestinal Barrier Function: The gut flora contributes to the integrity and function of the intestinal barrier, which prevents the entry of harmful substances, toxins, and pathogens into the bloodstream. A healthy gut flora helps maintain the tight junctions between intestinal cells.
