Candida & Diet/Carbs


#1

I don’t know if this is the right place to ask to ask this question, but it sort of pertains to the using the Plazma super stack. I think I might have a candida overgrowth in my body. Every article I found recommends a low carb approach to kill the candida. In order for the Indigo-3G to work you need to eat carbs.

Would it be better to follow an anti candida diet for a few months before I start the Plazma stack or is it safe to eat functional carbs while doing a candida cleanse?

We’re not experts in candidiasis, and we understand it’s a much-debated issue, with many experts saying that too many people assume they have it when it’s actually quite rare. However, based on what we do know, the main culprits are sugar (think average sugar, like table sugar in sweets and the obvious bad stuff like HFCS) and often glutenous foods such as wheat.

The elimination of these two foods alone could help you a great deal. The carb guide I often give new Indigo-3G users happens to be free of those two foods: <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/strength-training-topics/1617"target=“new”>Indigo-3G Carb Guide

The carbohydrates in <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma are very different than standard sugars. Plazma contains nutrient-partitioning functional carbohydrates such as highly branched cyclic dextrin, which your body treats much differently than run-of-the-mill, whole-food carbs.

So, you may want to give the protocol a shot and see how it works in your situation. If it works, great! If not, you may need to follow the anti-candida diet first as you suggested. Sorry we can’t be more precise, but yours in a pretty unique situation.
