What is Candida?

“Candida” commonly is referring to the Candida Albicans fungus, which is the most common yeast in the human gastrointestinal system. In normal days, as long as the candida is balanced with healthy bacteria, then Candida is in a controlled state and causes no health issues. It even helps digest food, increases nutrient absorption, and is part of the protective layer of bacteria and yeast in the body.

What caused Candida Overgrowth?

Unfortunately, sometimes conditions are ripe for Candida Albicans to grow out of control – often when there is a decrease in beneficial microbes, such as:

  • taking a course of antibiotics

  • a poor diet

  • having chronic stress,

  • having chronic illness

  • taking medication such as oral contraceptive pills.

This is where the Candida secures the opportunity to reproduce rapidly, and it experiences little or no threat from friendly microbes or immune responses.

What Problems can Candida Overgrowth cause?

Candida overgrowth can cause a multitude of problems, including oral thrush, bad breath, vaginal yeast infections, nail fungus, jock itch, intestinal disorders (IBS), fatigue, foggy brain, and more.

Why Women tend to have Candida Overgrowth?

Due to the biological & hormonal difference, women have a higher risk to get Candida overgrowth comparing to men. This has been shown that around 75% of women develop vaginal candida infection in their lifetime. Besides that, women are also prone to have higher cases of having IBS related symptoms, a condition that may be caused by Candida overgrowth. The study also showing female tend to intake more antibiotic compare to the male counterpart. This increase the risk of having oral candida infection.

​​How can ProGIGuard Help?

ProGIGuard contains the good yeast probiotic - S.cerevisiae CNCM I-3856 500mg. It has been proven to relieve symptoms of Candida overgrowth conditions such as white discharge, IBS and oral thrush.

It helps to control Candida count, by:

  • inducing coaggregation with Candida, lead to clearance from the body.

  • forming a barrier on the organ's epithelium, prevent C.albican adherence on it.

  • affecting Candida virulence factors makes it less invasive to the organ's epithelium.

  • improving the body's immune defence system. Strong immunity helps control the body's pathogens count.

What makes ProGIGuard so Unique?

Most probiotics in the market are from bacteria strain. ProGIGuard is a unique patented strain of baker's yeast probiotic strain S.Cerevisiae CNCM I-3856, produced by one of the biggest yeast production company Lesaffre from France.

The benefit of a yeast probiotic:​

  • Bigger cell - ProGIGuard yeast probiotic has bigger surface area compare to bacteria probiotic, this translates a smaller quantity count is needed to perform its beneficial effect.

  • Resistance to antibiotic - ProGIGuard doesn't get kill nor weaken by antibiotic treatment.

  • Acid resistance (Gastric acid, bile acid) - due to its robust cell wall, ProGIGuard able to survive through the stomach and bile acid environment.

  • Immune modulation - ProGIGuard has been proven to stimulate the body's own immune defences which is vital control and manage pathogens growth & improve immunity.

ProGIGuard for Candida Overgrowth

ProGIGuard helps to aid clearance of Candida Albicans and helps to reduce the Candida Overgrowth related condition. ProGIGuard is suitable to take especially:

  • ​​During antibiotics treatment - antibiotics disrupt endogeneous balanced gut microbiota, allowing antibiotic-resistant pathogens such as Candida Albicans to flourish.

  • During stressful and fatigue time - Chronic stress and tiredness will lead to lower immune defences to fight against bad pathogens such as Candida.

  • During an acute crisis of Candida infection - ProGIGuard aid faster recovery by working as an adjuvant therapy with conventional drug treatment for a condition such as Vaginal Candidiasis, Irritable bowel symptoms caused by candida overgrowth.

  • During contraceptive treatment - The use of an intrauterine device (IUD) and some contraceptive pills may accelerate Candida growth.

How to know whether I have Candida Overgrowth?

The below test is reviewing the signs and symptoms to determine if you have Candida Albicans Overgrowth.

Review the 80 likely symptoms listed below to see if any apply to you. Give yourself ONE POINT for each of those which you have had persistently (for a month or longer, either currently or at any time in the past).

ADDED UP YOUR SCORE _____ (one point per symptom)

0-4 points – Indicates variations of normal living (unless persistent and severe).

5-9 Points – Indicates a Clear Pattern shows likely development of Candida Overgrowth Dysbiosis.

10 or more – Indicates Strong Pattern and almost certain Candida Overgrowth Dysbiosis.

Yeast infections that return may be a sign of more serious conditions.

High Uric Acid Ups Kidney Failure Risk

Many links uric acid to gout. But do you know that consistent high uric acid may cause other medical conditions as well, especially kidney failure.

In fact, 60% of those who already has gout attack symptoms eventually will develop kidney dysfunction if the high uric acid level is not manage properly.(1)

Why High Uric Acid is Dangerous?

High Serum Uric Acid or technically known as Hyperuricemia, is a medical condition caused by excessive levels of uric acid in the body. Generally, it is consider high uric acid when blood uric acid >7mg/dL (0.42mmol/L).

Uric acid is formed when the body breaks down purines, which is a substance in the human tissue and certain foods that we eat. In a normal circumstances, uric acid will dissolves in the blood and moves through the kidneys where it is then passing out of the body via urine.

But when a person in stress condition or intake too much high-purine foods, and the body’s failed to excrete uric acid fast enough, it leads to high uric acid concentration in the body.

Consistent high uric acid in the body, will have uric acid crystallization and end up causing havoc in various organs, especially kidneys damage, or in the joints where it causes gout.

What contributes to High Uric Acid?

Essential Management for High Uric Acid Patients

But it is essential for the person to maintain healthy uric acid level even though they do not have any gout attack. These group of patients need to prevent organs damage from the long term high uric acid concentration in their blood level, especially the kidney.

Testosterone and Low T

Testosterone is the main hormone in men produced by the testicles. Testosterone influences a man’s physical appearance; builds muscles, bone mass and contributes to his sexual development and sex drive. Testosterone production decreases with age, with a more significant decline after 40 years old. When Testosterone levels decline too rapidly, men can experience a range of disturbing and uncomfortable symptoms. The medical fraternity commonly labels these symptoms as Andropause symptoms. Low testosterone or often called low T happens when Testosterone levels fall below 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL).

More Men are affected by Low T nowadays

Several studies have confirmed that testosterone levels in men are lower in recent years as compared to a few decades ago. The cause of this declining trend isn't entirely clear, but evidence suggests that it could be the result of multifaceted factors, contributed by modernization and industrialization – increased in food intake, the decline in food quality, lack of physical exercise, exposure to pollutions and contaminants, increased in

stress level & etc.

Low T is not just about Sexual Performance

Although many could have automatically linked testosterone to sexuality, clinical findings showed that the most common Low T symptom is, in fact, loss of energy. Next is the sign of low motivation, then only follow with libido declines and other symptoms like moodiness and irritability. The feeling of extremely tired and sleepy after lunch is, in fact, a common symptom affecting as high as 40% of men with low testosterone levels.

Men with Type 2 diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome are at higher risks of Low T!

Obesity (overweight), diabetes, and hypertension increase the risk of Low T to DOUBLE!

Research shows that Low T is closely associated with diabetes. National Health Service Diabetes UK reports that 16% of male with type 2 diabetes have lower than normal level of testosterone and an additional of 24% have Testosterones level very close to the bottom level, which totals up to 40% of diabetics have Low T problem.

Studies also show that men who have low T tend to be

• overweight with BMI over 30 kg/m2,

• Have waist circumferences greater than 37 inches

• Have a higher incidence of HbA1C level greater than 6.5%.
