Did You Know?

What is Candida albicans?

  • Candida albicans is a microscopic fungus that naturally lives on your body.

  • It is typically found in small amounts on your mouth, skin and in your intestines.

  • Healthy bacteria in your body regulate Candida count (microbiome).

  • When Candida is off-balance, it overgrows and causes infection (candidiasis).

Candida Overgrowth: A Silent but Serious Threat to Your Health


When a person's good bacteria are suppressed or their immune system is weakened, they may develop candida overgrowth. Candida overgrowth can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Taking antibiotics. 

  • Having a weakened immune system, either from a health condition (like diabetes1 or HIV) or taking immunosuppressive medications like steroids or chemotherapy.

  • Taking high estrogen birth control pill. 

  • Eating high refined carbs or sugar diet.

  • Excessive alcohol intake.

  • High levels of stress.

Any one of these factors may not be enough to cause candida overgrowth on its own, but if you have more than one, the combination may create a perfect storm for candida.
