Q. What Probiotic is best used to treat Candida (yeast condition)?
A. I am glad to see you thinking of a long term resolution to treating candida instead of just killing it.
I cannot tell you how many patients, and doctors, think that simply killing candida will make it go away for good.
Absolutely wrong thinking.
The best probiotic to help treat candida is one that contains multiple species of beneficial bacteria and in very high amounts.
This way, the multi-species beneficial bacteria have a better chance to take hold and implant themselves into the small and large intestine thereby altering the pH and killing the candida. In order to alter the pH and have the beneficial bacteria crowd out and kill the candida, very high amounts are required. When I say high amounts I mean in the 100's of billions.
There is one probiotic that contains 12 species of beneficial bacteria in high amounts. One half teaspoon of ProBiota 12 Powder contains 200 billion beneficial bacteria in twelve strains.
