MBi Nutraceuticals Fungistatin 90 Capsules.
These products are designed to work together to kill yeast. Capsules focus on the area from the nose to the upper G.I. tract; tablets are designed to kill yeast in the lower G.I. tract.
Fungistatin is a nutritional mycostat (antifungal) that can help to control the overgrowth of Candida albicans. It inhibits its ability to form fungal rhizoids that can penetrate the intestinal mucosa spreading toxins and intestinal substances throughout the body.
Fungistatin Capsules are designed to kill yeast in the upper G.I. tract, from the throat and nasal cavity to the bile duct area. Bile emulsifies the fatty acids that make up Fungistatin, and it can no longer function as a fungus killer. Use the T.R. (timed release) tablets for the lower bowel after 1 or 2 bottles of the capsules OR use them together during the 2nd bottle of capsules.
Many fatty acids seem to inhibit mold growth. The most effective are unsaturated short chain fatty acids. These appear to block the transport of nutrients into yeast and fungus cells by disrupting the cell membrane. Sorbic acid or its salt, potassium sorbate, is an effective antimycotic agent which demonstrates broad spectrum activity against yeast and fungal molds. It has very little activity against bacteria so it can aid the normalization of gastrointestinal flora by reducing Candida and other fungal overgrowth. The body metabolizes Sorbic acid like other fatty acids and is recognized as safe by the FDA (GRAS) list. Sodium Caprylate is another mycostatic agent. This C-8 fatty acid is also a safe yeast inhibitor. Calcium propionate is a neutralized form of propionic acid (fatty acid), and is well known for its antifungal properties. Propionates inhibit pathogenic fungi and can help in the treatment of candidiasis by preventing the conversion of Candida to it pathogenic fungal form.
Is another mold inhibitor that has an astringent, healing effect against fungus infestation of the intestines and mucosa membranes. All of these fatty acid fungistatic agents are more effective when ingested with foods with an acidic pH.
