Candida Proof Smoothie

Need a candida smoothie? Candida is a yeast that can cause major disruptions in the intestines as well as the skin surfaces (think tinea and/or dandruff) and genital areas (think thrush). When there is candida symptoms in more than one place in your body it is referred to as systemic candida infection. The diet to eliminate candida is very low in sugar, as this is the yeast’s favourite fuel source, but that tends to leave people missing important nutrients in fruit.

Enter – the Candida Proof Smoothie

The punicalagin found in the pomegranate is a potent anti-fungal against the candida infection whilst the raspberries are very lo in sugar – about the same amount as a turnip. Coconut is also known for its anti-fungal abilities, due to the presence of medium-chain fatty acids caprylic acid, capric acid and lauric acid. These 3 acids can even reduce any ‘die off’ symptoms you may experience when eradicating candida and this recipe has both coconut cream, coconut oil and coconut water
