Trying to get rid of candida or other pathogenic microorganisms? Allergic to prescription antibiotics or just trying to balance your intestinal microflora naturally? Microbiral Defense uses extracts of plants that have proven antibacterial and antifungal properties to inhibit the growth of pathogens gently. Microbiral Defense is formulated with wormwood, green tea, and berberine extracts to provide natural support for reducing:
Microbiral Defense by Seeking Heatlh is formulated with three plants that are prized for their antimicrobial and antifungal properties. Berberine sulfate provides broad-spectrum support against numerous potential pathogens. Artemisia absinthium, also known as wormwood, has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb for internal parasites. Artemisia annua, commonly known as sweet wormwood, is rich in a sesquiterpene lactone that serves as a natural defense agent for the plant. Green tea provides polyphenols that hinder microbial growth and activity. May be useful in a broad GI detoxification program or separately to support microbial balance.

Excellent for candida/fungal/bacterial infection as it contains concentrates of Green Tea, Berberine Sulfate, and Wormwood with both annua and absynthium types. I have used it for 3 days now and my gas and bloating seems reduced. I hope given enough time, I would definitely fight off this nasty infection!
Thank you Dr. Ben for recommending this and other combinations to me! -- Yen -- Order #100014762 (Posted on 10/17/12)
How I recommend it is to do the following:
I highly recommend adding in some Optimal Vitamin C Powder - 1 scoop in a liter of water - and drinking throughout the day. This will support your immune system and also support glutathione levels which are useful in detoxing yeast toxins.
