Dear Marti,

First, for anyone not familiar, Candida Albicans is a fungus that occurs naturally inside the human body, especially in your intestines, but when your immune system isn't working well it can overgrow and cause you a lot of physical problems, even emotional ones. But let me tell you a little bit about Candida to start with.

In the 1970's, every patient that came to me said they had parasites. A few of them did, but at that time all the doctors were telling people they had parasites. In the 1980's, the fad disease was hypoglycemia. And although I saw a few patients with hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, it certainly wasn't every patient who walked in my door. But doctors told everybody, with all the problems and symptoms that they had; it was because they were hypoglycemic. And they really weren't.

Well, if there was a fad disease of the '90's, it certainly was Candida Albicans overgrowth within the body. I can tell you that I saw thousands of patients that were wrongly diagnosed by their doctors, whether it was a medical doctor or a natural doctor, and told that all their problems were because they had Candida. And let me tell you, I found very few actual patients that really had a Candida overgrowth. So I just wanted to say that up front.

But the question is, if you have Candida can you take SuperFood Plus, and the answer is ABSOLUTELY YES! The yeast that is in SuperFood Plus is not alive or active. The yeast is in there because yeast (especially the Saccharomyces cervisiae that I use) is the highest natural source of B vitamins that you can find. It's the highest natural source of B vitamins that you can digest and get into your bloodstream without even digesting them in your intestines. Right from your mouth you will get a B vitamin blast, and everybody needs more energy, and therefore, needs more B vitamins. But the yeast is heated up high enough after it grows the B vitamins, to kill off any activity, but not high enough to destroy any of the B vitamin content.

So the answer is YES, for anybody that happens to actually have a Candida overgrowth in their body, it is absolutely safe for them to take the SuperFood Plus, because the yeast in SuperFood Plus, the Saccharomyces Cervisiae B vitamin blast in SuperFood Plus, has been heated just enough to make it totally, 100% inactive.
