Is ClenZyme from Natural Factors a good enzyme formula for Candida yeast?

It was recommended to me at the health food store.

I have been following a Candida diet for 3 months eating meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, yogurt with a little stevia, blueberries and strawberries. It has made a big difference, but I know I need more help to get rid of it.

Thank you for any advice.

I did a search for ClenZyme from Natural Factors and came up with this ingredient list.

Each vegetarian capsule contains:

Bacterial protease as Bacillus subtilis 18.5 mg (18,500 FCC PC)

Alpha-amylase 15.3 mg (2,300 FCC DU)

Triacylglycerol lipase 7.5 mg (525 FCC LU)

Fungal protease 9.2 mg (9,200 FCC HUT)

Glucoamylase 8.7 mg (10.5 FCC AGU)

Cellulase 8.6 mg (1,550 FCC CU)

Bromelain 7 mg (230,000 FCC PU)

Papain 5.5 mg (230,000 FCC PU)

Hemicellulase 2.9 mg (2,300 FCC HCU)

Pectinase 1 mg (9 Endo-PG)

Total mgs 84.2

Non-Medicinal Ingredients

Microcrystalline cellulose, vegetarian capsule (carbohydrate gum [cellulose], purified water), vegetable grade magnesium stearate (lubricant).

Mannoproteins make up 55% of the yeast cell wall and biofilm structure. Typically, these mannoproteins will be 20% protein and 80% mannose polysaccharides.

Protease, bromelain, and papain break down the proteins and this formula contains these enzymes in ample amounts.

25% of the biofilm is a carbohydrate rich matrix composed of polysaccharide carbohydrate glucans and chitins. The cell wall also contains these components.

Alpha-amylase, glucoamylase, cellulase, and hemicellulase break down these components. This formula is seriously lacking here. Adding the activity levels of the enzymes together you come up with 12,320 units per two capsules. Looking at Candifense, Candex, Candidase and although the exact activity of Biofase is not listed, I can tell you the activity levels for cellulase alone for these four formulas ranges from 60,000 to 76,000 units per two caps. Hemicellulase units for all these formulas are 40,000 units. You see the same thing with amylase and glucoamylase as well, the levels are much higher compared to ClenZyme.

15% of the biofilm and cell wall structure is composed of lipids or fats.

Lipase digests fats and the only other formula that contains this enzyme is Biofase. The activity levels of the two are very close to the same.

Pectinase does work on the polysaccharides but so does amylase, glucoamylase, cellulase, and hemicellulase.

The biofilm and therefore the entire colony will be anchored to your gut with fibrin and/or fibrinogen.

Serrapepetase works for this and this formula contains none... big mistake. If you digest the fibrin anchors to your intestinal wall, you can literally flush out chunks of the colony. Freeing up this space allows good bacteria to attach, which prevents re-attachment by the Candida yeast colony.

There is really no reason to add microcrystalline cellulose or magnesium stearate to any enzyme formula. But they do have Bacterial protease listed as Bacillus subtilis, which is a bacteria. Probiotic bacteria are sticky so some sort of material is needed to offset the stickiness to get the bacteria to flow into the capsule when they are manufactured.

The price of a 90 capsule bottle of ClenZyme from Natural Factors is pretty cheap. But would I spend my hard earned money on it? No I would not.

Any other questions let me know.
