NOW Candida Support Review
Candida is a naturally occurring type of yeast that lives in small amounts in the gut and when in balance, causes no harm. Once there is a change in the system, the yeast can multiply and grow out of control resulting in a yeast infection. This review is going to examine NOW Candida Support which claims to offer a blend of ingredients that will restore and maintain balance in the system. Candida Support is a combination of traditional herbal ingredients including biotin, and Caprylic Acid that may support a healthy balance of intestinal bacteria. Candida, when in balance, is healthy and Candida support promises to maintain that balance.

Magnesium helps break down the toxic metabolites of Candid Albicans. Your body won’t be able to remove the substances if there is any sort of magnesium deficiency. The Caprylic Acid acts by interfering with the cell walls of the Candida yeast. The Pau D’Arco acts as a strong antifungal agent. It contains the compound, lapachol, which is believed to prevent Candida growth. The Black Walnut contains natural tannins that are believed to kill yeast and fungus.

NOW Candida Support Review – The Bottom Line
NOW Candida Support seems to be a credible product. They have a good amount of key ingredients that are believed to offer benefits that can potentially help restore balance to the body and their money back guarantee is reasonable. The information NOW provides about what Candida Support has to offer is very limited and hard to understand. Those inquiring about a supplement that will help them prevent future yeast infections want to be well informed and have plentiful information about what the product has to offer and NOW does not provide that. We also found an abundance of complaints from customers who had tried this product claiming that they experienced continual indigestion and many said that the capsule has a ‘disgusting’ and bad smell that made it intolerable to ingest.
