Yeast and probiotic kefir

by blaze

Here I have a question regarding yeast, as we know we shouldn't consume yeast products on candida diet, but many people recommend (and even on this site) milk kefir. As we know milk kefir has many strains of yeast, even most common one we find in bread and beer.

That suppose to mean no milk kefir even tho' is a good probiotic food ?

Kefir contains beneficial bacteria that are helpful for controlling Candida yeast. It also contains Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which is commercially known as S. Boulardii. There are quite a few anti-candida supplements on the market that contain this yeast because it does have anti-candida effects. More information about S. boulardii can be found on this webpage.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae, S. boulardii can and does infect some people, but it is also very good for treating chronic diarrhea, IBS, Crohn's disease, C. difficule infections, H. pylori, and it seems to help with chronic inflammation of the gut.

We have had many reports over the years from people that have used kefir while treating themselves for Candida yeast. Some had very good success; others reported that it made them bloat. Because most people do not medically test themselves to see if Candida is over grown in their intestines, we suspect that those that have bad reactions actually have SIBO. In these cases, adding the extra bacteria and yeast before a person has treated themselves for too much bacteria in their small intestine, increases the bacteria levels even further, leading to severe bloating.

Bottom line, if you know for a medically proven fact, that you have Candida over growth in your intestine, kefir might help you. If the problem is over grown bacteria in the small intestine, it might make things worse.
