Ancient Nutrition fermented mushrooms are powered by fermentation—our own proprietary, patent-pending, dual-stage, live fermentation process. Fermentation is an ancient process typically used to break down food into more absorbable components.

Many probiotic strains are fragile and have to be refrigerated in order to survive. Even when you take them, they may not make it into your gut. That's why Ancient Herbals – Candida includes Bacillus subtilis, a probiotic strain that withstands harsh conditions like stomach acid and heat and is naturally in the soil. These strains are tough, and they survive without refrigeration.

What is Candida?
There are various forms of microorganisms which naturally exist in the body, and Candida albicans, or C. albicans, is a yeast typically found in your mucous membranes and skin. Usually, it’s harmless. But if it starts to grow out of control, there can be serious ramifications. It can run rampant in various parts of the body, including the mouth, esophagus, stomach, heart, skin, fingers, nails and the female genital tract. Here’s what happens: yeast crowds out normal gut flora and changes the composition of gut enzymes and diminishes the gut’s ability to properly absorb nutrients. That’s not all that happens, though. Yeast also releases certain unwanted by-products that are then absorbed through the gut or throughout the body. Yuck. Yeast imbalance can be quite uncomfortable, too. Overall, a yeast and fungal imbalance can lead to overall discomfort.
How does a yeast or fungal imbalance occur?
Normally, the healthy bacteria in your gut can help keep yeast or fungal balance in check. However, a few factors can cause a yeast or fungal imbalance: - Diets high in sugar and refined carbohydrates - Consuming too much alcohol - Using birth control pills - Being under too much stress and/or living a high-stress lifestyle - Taking antibiotics, which can diminish healthy bacteria in your gut Those are some of the factors that can lead to yeast or fungal imbalance. But these factors don't always lead to an imbalance.
How much should I take?
The suggested serving is to take two capsules once daily.
Do I need to refrigerate this product?
No, you do not need to refrigerate these. The probiotics strains included are shelf-stable and survivable.
