Candida Diet Basics

A lot of diet programs nowadays allow people to try several options if they wish to lose weight. But not all diets have that specific aim all the time. There are also other programs aiming to achieve other results like boosting or improving certain functions of the body. The targets are usually the body’s digestive and immune systems. These types of diets may not necessarily lead you to lose weight. But rather, the weight loss becomes just part of the process, so to speak. One such diet example is the Candida Diet. 

What Is The Candida Diet?

The Candida Diet is considered as belonging to a low-carbohydrate, low sugar diet group type. The purpose of this diet is not necessarily to help people lose weight. Instead, the aim is the reduction of the amount of excess yeast in the body- more specifically, Candida Albicans- from the gut. Too much yeast in the gut is said to be the cause of a number of health issues and conditions aside from promoting infections. The main objective of this diet is to balance the gut bacteria by getting rid of the yeast population. 

Excessive Yeast 

Candida Albicans is a common type of yeast known to cause infections in humans. They normally live inside the body as well as on the skin. But they can become a problem if their population numbers inside your body grow out of control. An overgrowth can lead to a type of infection more known as candidiasis. An abnormal increase in numbers of this yeast in the body is also the reason for certain health conditions such as oral thrush and vaginal yeast infections in women. It can also lead to bowel irregularities, chronic fatigue, and even brain fog.
