Under normal circumstances there is a carefully controlled balance of yeasts and bacteria in our digestive system that acts to maintain health. One of these organisms is a type of yeast termed Candida albicans and is generally no problem to us. However, under certain conditions including antibiotic use, the contraceptive pill and diets high in sugar, uncontrolled overgrowth of this yeast occurs resulting in candidiasis (often simply referred to as candida). This may affect the entire body and can result in a wide range of symptoms including bloating, food intolerance, Athlete’s food, headaches and eczema. Indeed it is a condition that many practitioners frequently see in their practice and there are now many books written on the topic.
Most practitioners generally recommend a change in diet that excludes yeast and sugar, along with a supplement programme designed to help readdress the balance in the digestive tract, and heal the gut, as well as support the immune system.
So we are delighted to introduce Lamberts Candaway to the Lamberts Healthcare® range. This unique, high potency formula, contains a natural complex of herbs and spices that may help to maintain a healthy balance in the digestive tract. It includes cinnamon bark in combination with olive leaf, fennel seed and cardamom oil.
When using herbs and spices in Lamberts® formulas, we always ensure that we use the correct species and the relevant part of the plant. This is why we have specifically used cinnamon bark since it is the bark, as opposed to the oil, that is principally documented for cinnamon’s therapeutic qualities, including its antimicrobial and antifungal activity. We think you’ll find Lamberts Candaway an invaluable supplement for your practice and one that is hard to beat.
