Vitamin B12 MSE

The vitamin B12 is contained here in the form of methylcobalamin, which is the active form that doesn’t need to be processed in the body. Aside from vitamin B12, the preparation contains three other B vitamins, which aid its effectiveness: biotin, folic acid and vitamin B6 – all in heightened doses.

PROS: good for completing basic B vitamin supplementation, strength of alkalization between vitamin B complex (weak) and vitamin B6 in 50mg tablets (strong), a package lasts three months (120 tablets); easily absorbed
CONS: expensive
USE: for completing B vitamin supplementation and making sure the level of homocysteine isn’t too high, which can have negative effect on health
WHERE TO BUY: online and in some pharmacies.

Biotin

Biotin is synthesized by healthy bacterial flora in the intestines, which prevents Candida from multiplying. When you eat acidogenically, you destroy the intestinal flora and open the door for Candida. The symptoms of biotin deficiency concern hair, nails and skin – their poor appearance means that every available resource has been used up for fighting Candida.
Products such as coffee, black tea, spinach and rhubarb contain oxalates, which block biotin and aid Candida. As far as spinach and rhubarb are concerned, I don’t think anyone eats them multiple times a day, but tea and coffee can be a serious problem. You can supplement biotin additionally under one condition: it can’t be in large doses of 5 mg or small doses several times a day, because by doing so you will cause an imbalance between biotin and other B vitamins. This can result in directing the process of self-healing in one direction, while another department is neglected, because there won’t be proportionally enough of the other vitamins for it.

Biotin 300 mcg (Walmark)

PROS: a relatively small dose, no additives
NOTES: just one tablet a day, best before bed
USE: with clear signs of a biotin deficiency (severe hair, nails and skin problems)
WHERE TO BUY: online, sometimes in pharmacies or drugstores

Hair supplements with biotin (Doppel herz)

PROS: relatively small dose of biotin with other substances meant to aid it
CONS: a small amount of elements, which can accumulate and disrupt balance; lack of niacin, which is bad in the case of thyroid gland disorders
USE: with clear signs of a biotin deficiency (severe hair, nails and skin problems)
WHERE TO BUY: in pharmacies and drugstores (e.g. Rossmann)

Vitamin B6

I call it the chief B vitamin, because in the case of a Candida overgrowth, the demand for it is significantly increased; it appears to be as important as all the other B vitamins combined. This is because it is needed universally (for digestion, brain function, hormone production, for the immune system and the hematopoietic system), but mostly for the absorption of magnesium, which is needed for a hundred other biochemical reactions and is the deciding factor when it comes to the speed of the recovery.
People with a Candida overgrowth have a B vitamin deficiency, which causes issues with the absorption of magnesium. Because of this, supplementing magnesium usually does not increase the amount of it in the body, it is removed with urine; meanwhile supplementing vitamin B6 in the evening causes the magnesium delivered from food to be absorbed and nourish the body.

PROS: no additives in the preparation, low price.
CONS: a relatively large dose (50g) in a small tablet, which is hard to divide.
USE: for completing basic B complex vitamin supplementation in one dose in the evening or two doses of 25 mg separately.
WHERE TO BUY: in the pharmacy.

Enzymes

By not delivering B vitamins to your body, you allow Candida to grow. When it grows large, it produces so much toxins that neutralizing them consumes every delivered portion of B vitamins, not allowing the body to create resources (for example of magnesium) needed to fight the fungus. Despite this, the body will still fight, attempting to “save” vitamins on other processes happening in the body. One of them is digestion. B vitamins are necessary for the production of gastric juices, breaking down protein, carbohydrates and fats, absorbing other vitamins and elements. When there isn’t enough of them, food isn’t properly digested, which means that not only are the substances necessary for the consequent reactions not created, but the indigested leftovers penetrate the bloodstream, causing allergic reactions. This is why food doesn’t nourish the body, but burdens it instead. And it’s also why when treating Candida it’s very important to support digestion with the help of enzymes, which the body can’t produce enough of due to the lack of B vitamins.
They are taken before the meal with as little water as possible.
Preparations containing enzymes can be found at herbalist’s and online. You should make sure that they contain enzymes that break down proteins and fats and as well as carbohydrates, but not cleansing substances such as chlorella, or liposoluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) or elements such as calcium. The enzymes themselves can’t be overdosed, even if taken with several meals during the day, but vitamins or elements will accumulate and disrupt the body’s balance. Similarly, the cleansing properties of chlorella will accumulate, causing the opposite of the desired effect.

B compositum

PROS: a complete set of B vitamins in a relatively small dose (100% RDA), no additional alkalizing substances, low price.
CONS: the filler additives may cause irritation to the stomach; this is why you should limit supplementation to one tablet a day.
WARNING: B compositum and B complex are meant to signify a set of B vitamins, but can differ in content – sometimes a preparation will contain 4 vitamins, other times 5 or 8. The more, the better.
USE: for completing acidogenic meals, especially ones containing meat. Doesn’t contain vitamin C, so adding vegetables to the meal is required. Perfect supplement for those who react strongly to any attempts of alkalization.
WHERE TO BUY: in the pharmacy.

Flavon Kids

PROS: gel formula, which enables you to dose it accordingly; it’s natural, plant-based and contains a complete set of B vitamins.
CONS: first and foremost the price and way of distibution (you have to buy four jars at once for 137.50 zł [about 35 dollars] each).
WARNING: Flavon Kids contains additional alkalizing substances (vitamin C and antioxidants), which, if taken in excess in people with Candida overgrowth, can cause excessive stimulation of the immune system and cause or intensify inflammation. According to my calculations, the tiny spoon of gel is equivalent to 3kg [6lbs] of fruits and vegetables, so obviously people with Candida overgrowth should divide this dose over a few meals.
USE: ideal for completing acidogenic meals such as sandwiches without vegetables, pancakes with cheese, dumplings, meat with bread etc.

WHERE TO BUY: at a Flavon distributor.

Supplementation formula

Treating Candida overgrowth relies largely on providing the body with what it was deprived of by the fungus through supplementing B vitamins with each meal. This means that you need to estimate your meal and complete it with the vitamins. If it’s completely acidogenic, like a cheese or ham sandwich, it requires supporting with 1/4 of a teaspoon of Flavon Kids or a tablet of B compositum and a bit of raw vegetables. If the meal consists in half of vegetables, this kind of support isn’t needed. If the meal contains sugar and refined flour, no support could balance that out and it will be like pouring water into a leaking pot.

Besides supplementing a set of B vitamins to the meals, it’s important to additionally supply vitamin B6 in the evening to absorb the magnesium accumulated through the day. Magnesium is the key element in fighting Candida and that’s why supplementation influences the pace of the body healing itself. People who eat heavier meals and don’t experience symptoms of a B vitamin deficiency (like allergic reactions, digestive issues) can supplement a whole tablet (50mg). Those who eat lightly and have a reaction to any change – half a tablet.
