Candidemia, or the presence of candida in the bloodstream, has become more prevalent over the past 20 years, according to the CDC.
Candidiasis, caused by candida, is a fungal or yeast infection. Candida infections can occur in the mouth and intestines and can negatively affect the body from the belly to brain.
Candida overgrowths in the intestines can damage the gut lining, enter the bloodstream and cause toxic by-products to enter the body which then leads to many health problems such as digestive issues and depression.
Getting candida under control is important to avoid chronic health issues, and antifungals can be helpful in this process. Antifungal plants and antifungal medication are two ways to get candida under control.
