Candida Cell Wall Suppressor and Fats
Candida Cell Wall Suppressor is currently the only product clinically proven to remove candida fungus from the body. However, it is important to assist the product in doing its job by taking the correct dosage and following the recommended protocol. Therefore, pH health would like to give you some vital information about the role of fats in this treatment program.
It is equally important to understand the function of coconut oil, so that your cleanse is not adversely affected by it. Fats are a controversial topic in the field of nutrition, and for those who do not know much about fats it can be a confusing issue. The below information will help you to understand the importance of following the protocol.
Fats are important
It is recommended that when beginning our candida cleanse program, you consume some fat with each tablet taken. There is of course good reason for this - it ensures that the cleanse works to optimum potential.
Simply put, dietary fat assists the absorption of Candida Cell Wall Suppressor into your body's cells. When taken half way through the meal containing the fat, the capsule is able to dissolve and the product mixes with the fat-rich foods in the stomach. Fat is rapidly absorbed by the body, enabling the Candida Cell Wall Suppressor to enter the cells; at this point, it is gradually released over the following days when the body breaks down the fat for energy.
Now we will address the issue of which fats you need to take with your Candida Cell Wall Suppressor and how much of them to consume. The truth is that only coconut oil is a poor choice. This is not because it is unhealthy - on the contrary - it is an excellent health product with a variety of benefits and has historically been used as part of a combination of products in the treatment of candida overgrowth through diet.
pH health recommend that if you wish to use this oil, you do so during the rest phases of your cleanse and not while taking the capsules. Coconut oil is what is known as a longtail fatty acid, so it is not broken down until it gets to the colon. Essentially, it will bind to the Candida Cell Wall Suppressor and carry it out of your body before absorption can occur. On top of this, the natural laxative effects of this oil can expedite that process.
Try to select natural fats such as avocado, nuts, vegetable and seed oils.
How much fat is equally important
The recommended amount of fat to consume with each meal is approximately 1 tablespoon, or 14 grams of fat/oil per serving. You can mix this into your food, although foods usually contain some naturally occurring fat so you might not even have to add anything at all.
Those generally considered to be ‘good’ fats are monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, and omega-3s. They are found in natural foods such as fish and whole milk products, oils, nuts/nut butters and high fat fruits. Some saturated fats have nutritional value, such as coconut oil and goats cheese, although as mentioned, we don’t recommend you use coconut oil with your capsules.
You could take monounsaturated fats such as:
- Olive oil
- Peanut oil
- Sesame oil
… and polyunsaturated fats such as:
- Sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin seeds
- Fatty fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, trout, sardines)
Another option is Omega 3s (Alpha Linoleic Acid) found in:
- Flax seed
- Hemp Seed
- Chia seeds
If you are unsure about fat content, there is plenty of information online, or you can check the nutrition labels on food packaging which will list the fat content per 100 grams. You don’t have to drastically alter your diet, but pH health recommend that you monitor the fat content in your meals when taking the capsules to ensure that that you check that every meal has a fat content of at least 14 grams.
Candida Cell Wall Suppressor protocol
The Candida Cell Wall Suppressor cleanse consists of 60 capsules, each containing a 600mg dose. Over a five day period you will take one Candida Cell Wall Suppressor capsule 4 times in a day (with food containing fat, and half way through the meal, as mentioned above) so the total amount consumed each day would be 2400mg.
A suggestion for your intake would be one capsule at breakfast, one at lunch, one late afternoon and the last with an evening meal - whichever plan works for you is fine, as long as they are taken at fairly regular intervals. Don’t forget the capsule should be taken half way through the meal for best absorption. After the initial 5 days, you will have a 10 day resting period, after which you will repeat this process twice more.
Please see the treatment calendar for guidance on when to take your cleanse capsules.
