What is Candida? Essentially, it’s a yeast overgrowth that thrives off of sugars in our body; and it’s very common in women. Symptoms can often look like exhaustion, acne, sweet cravings, urinary tract or yeast infections, and general sluggishness. It’s important to note that everyone’s bodies are different and react to ingredients in various ways, but the following foods are known to help candida thrive:
- Processed sugars
- Alcohol – especially beer
- Bread (& simple carbohydrates)
- High-fructose fruit
- Vinegars (except apple cider vinegar!)
If you have any of the above symptoms, please consult with your doctor. We highly recommend experimenting with an elimination diet of the above food groups to see if that helps your symptoms in the meantime!
