Candida fungus is present in everyone’s body. It is mainly found in the oral cavity and intestines, but it can also multiply and develop into an infection that can become overgrown.
The proliferation of candida fungi is due to certain lifestyle factors, such as excessive consumption of certain foods and drinks: white sugar, alcohol and processed foods. However, probiotics can help to restore the balance of the gut flora, which in turn can help to eliminate the symptoms caused by candida fungus. We show you what other herbs can help against fungal infections!
Grapefruit seed extract is a powerful antifungal agent. Grapefruit seed is a rich source of bioflavonoids with antioxidant properties. Not only does it deal effectively with candida fungus, it is also active in strengthening the immune system.
Clove oil has antiseptic and antifungal effects. Its active ingredient is a compound called eugenol, which is very effective against fungal infections.
Cinnamon also contains eugenol, which has a strong antifungal effect. Cinnamon can also be used to make an excellent tea that can be consumed. Use it as a cure to get rid of candida fungal infection for good.
Garlic is extremely rich in phytochemicals. Allicin is also a phytochemical with a strong antifungal effect. It is effective not only against candida fungus but also against other fungal infections. This positive effect of garlic is most evident when eaten raw.
Ginger also has an antifungal effect. Again, a compound called eugenol can help us fight fungal infections. It can also be made into a tea. Boil some water, add some grated ginger root. Allow to cool slightly and then flavour with lemon juice.
Oregano oil is a rich source of compounds called carvacrol and thymol, which have a strong antifungal effect. The oregano herb can also be made into a tea, or consumed in capsule or oil form.
Apple cider vinegar may also be good against some fungi, but its main benefit is that it helps to restore the intestinal flora, which, once functioning properly, will have no chance of fungal overgrowth.
