The Enzyme Connection:Candida research favorably supports the indespensible role of specific enzymes and their ability to literally digest Candida cell walls. The Fungal Defense formula utilizes potent amounts of both cellulase and protease. Cellulase breaks down fibrous carbohydrates while protease hydrolyzes (digests) protein. These two enzymes help to dissolve the cell wall of yeast and other fungi.
Wild Oregano and Olive Leaf Extracts:Fungal Defense contains the most powerful anti-fungal substances found in nature. Wild Oregano and Olive Leaf Extracts are recognized for their potent anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-parasitic properties. Their primary fungicidal components work synergistically to help eliminate yeast and fungus on contact.
Garlic and Yucca Juice Extracts:Known as Russian penicillin, Garlic is considered to be nature's premier antibiotic and anti-fungal. It is effective against bacteria and yeast that may be resistant to antimicrobial medications yet does not destroy the body's normal, friendly flora.
A potent blood purifier, the juice from the Yucca root found predominantly in the desert Southwest aids in digestion and produces surfactants which help to breakdown the lipid envelope that coats certain viruses and fungi including Candida.
Ancient Wisdom - Fermentation:The ancient Greeks understood that important chemical changes took place during fermentation. Their name for this change was "alchemy".
The whole food ingredients in Fungal Defense, are lacto-fermented and enzymatically pre-digested, utilizing a proprietary natural process called Poten-Zyme (Potentiation by Enzymatic activation). This ancient method of bio- fermentation incorporates 14 strains of beneficial micro-organisms and their enzymes into the foods, gently breaking them down into their most basic elements.
Fermentation creates and liberates valuable medicinal compounds within the foods including enzymes, antioxidants, beta glucans, phytosterols, and other phytonutrients - greatly enhancing the nutritional value while making it easier to digest. This assures more complete absorption and delivery of nutrients at the cellular level.
