  • What on earth is Candida?
  • Candida is a fungus, which is a form of yeast, a very small amount of which lives in your mouth and intestines.
  • Its job is to aid with digestion and nutrient absorption, but when it is overproduced it breaks down the wall of the intestine and penetrates the bloodstream, releasing toxic byproducts into your body and causing leaky gut.
  • This can lead to many different health problems ranging from digestive issues to depression.
