Greetings. It’s Eric Bakker, naturopath from New Zealand, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of Canxida, the Candida dietary supplements of choice. Thanks for tuning in. Today, I’m going to talk about why I created a second product as part of my Canxida range.
The first product I created about 18 months ago now is called Canxida Remove. Canxida Remove took a long time to make. And, in fact, it’s proving to take a long time to reformulate and to create a new batch of this product. Mainly because of the exacting nature that I have regarding the supply of raw materials. It’s very important to me that I get the best raw materials I can, and these raw materials have to go through quite a stringent process of checking to make sure (a) their the correct herb that requested, (b) they contain no contaminants or microbial contamination, and (c) the other thing that I’m very passionate about is the product is actually manufactured properly. It’s put together in a very special proprietary way. This has made Canxida Remove the exceptional product that it is today. Thanks for the feedback. We’ve had feedback from thousands of people now. This is an amazing product. I can tell by the response that I’m getting from people. It’s been my dream to create the best products I can find when it comes to Candida yeast infections and gut problems in general.
The second product I’ve made is called Canxida Restore. Canxida Restore is an enzyme formula with the best probiotics in it or a probiotic formula with the best enzymes in it, whichever way you want to slice it. It’s important to consider a top quality probiotic made with the right raw materials. But more importantly, one that doesn’t contain any fructooligosaccharides or prebiotics and also a probiotic that contains the best enzymes to partner up with it. I’m going to explain all this in this video so you understand why I made this formula and why it’s going to be a very successful companion to Canxida Remove. Having a good antifungal/anti-bacterial/anti-parasite product is very important with yeast infections. But even more important that you partner it up with the best possible companion product, which is a probiotic enzyme.
Many people will be used to taking products like ThreeLac or Floracor or any one of a number of products on the market like that. I’ve used all of these products. I’ve used thousands of products on Candida patients. And, in fact, this is what drove me to make my own products because I got disillusioned with a lot of the feedback I got from people. It’s different for you folks out there because if you have a problem and you buy a product, and it is going to either work or it doesn’t work.
In my situation, I treat thousands of people like you, so I get feedback all the time. I know what works. I know what doesn’t work. And I’m always trying to have something in my clinic that works the best time and again. I constantly get good feedback from it, and that’s why I got sick and tired of using other peoples’ stuff and I thought it’s time to make my own. The confirmation I’m getting from Canxida Remove gave me a huge amount of confidence to be able to now think I need to create a really good range of Candida products. And not only create them, but keep making them better and better and better. As new tools come a long, I’ll make better products. I can guarantee you that. In fact, we’re reformulating the Canxida Remove to contain oregano oil, which I missed out on in the first batch because I couldn’t get the right oregano oil. I finally found the right kind of product raw material, so that product should be released hopefully very soon.
The Canxida Restore contains seven different enzymes and six different probiotics. I’ve picked the four best, lactobacillus beneficial bacteria, the four best strains, four best species, and I’ve also picked the two top bifida. So I’ve gone for lacto and bifida, mainly because the lacto support small intestine; the bifida support large intestine. I’ve put no FOS in this product, so no inulin, or artificial sugars. Even though they’re made from natural sources, I don’t think it’s a good idea to put prebiotics in any kind of a dietary supplement, particularly a Candida product, or a product for irritable bowel or inflammatory bowel. I think it’s a bad move. FOS feeds up clostridia, E.coli, and different kinds of bacteria that could be regarded as undesirable. FOS can create bloating and accelerate brain fog in a lot of people. I’ve seen this first hand when I used to use Floracor, so this is a product I used quite a while on patients. I’ve used ThreeLac as well, and it contains canola oil and all sorts of different sugars in that. I just didn’t get the results I was looking for. I think it’s a good idea to take these sugars out of the diet, out of a dietary supplement, and to get you folks eating the right kind of vegetables and fruits because you can eat some fruits with a yeast infection. So you need to read more in my book, Candida Crusher, to understand that or go to yeastinfection.org.
This is going to be an excellent companion to Canxida Remove is the Canxida Restore. Again, I’ve picked enzymes. I’ll read out the list of the enzymes. These are really high quality enzymes made by one of the top manufacturers in the U.S.: amylase, hemicellulase, protease, invertase, and glucoamylase. As you can see, a lot of these enzymes are going to work on different kinds of starches, different kinds of carbohydrates, different kinds of proteins, and also fats. We’re going to help the body break down the food, assist the digestion, just make it more easy for digestion to work. This is going to be of particular benefit for you because it’s going to allow the intestinal tract to receive food in a greatly reduced state, easier for bacteria to work on, easy for beneficial bacteria to feed on, so the enzymes work very, very well indeed with the probiotics.
I’ve also put serratiopeptidase in there. Serratiopeptidase is a systemic enzyme, so it’s not necessarily a digestive enzyme, but I put it in there anyway, and it was the most expensive component of this product. I picked a very high-grade serratiopeptidase. And it actually helps to bind to circulating immune complexes in your blood. Once it gets into the system, it will actually start to hunt down and chase up little bits of debris found in the bloodstream. It helps to mop up and clean the bloodstream. It improves digestion. It facilitates an increased immune response by clearing the highways, basically, so it’s a good clearing out product.
I’ve chosen the lactobacillus acidophilus DDS 1, so the Department of Dairy Science 1. This is the best lactobacillus for Candida by a long shot. It’s based on a human strain. It was developed by Dr. Khem Shahani. There are over 200 papers written by Dr. Shahani on probiotics. This lactobacillus is considered to be the “Cadillac” or “Rolls Royce” of the lactobacillus. It’s also extremely stable on the shelf. It’s been made with particular cryogenic particles after it was harvested that have been added to it to allow it to handle a higher temperature. And this lactobacillus acidophilus survives the stomach bypass.
Many others won’t. This one will. I’ve put in the lactobacillus casei. Casei is a really good one for mopping up immune debris, boosting various aspects of immune function, and also for stopping any potential carcinogen problem there in the large intestine. So it’s a good one for that.
The culmination of the four lactobacillus and the bifida I think is a very smart move, simple but powerful formula. Over 15 billion bacteria you’re going to get per capsule, which is enough. Dr. Shahani said that a good daily dose is between 1 and 15 billion per day, so my formula is made with about 20 to 35 percent more of the probiotic than is actually stated on the label, so there is a lot more than 15 billion per capsule. We’re looking at close to the 20 or 25 billion per capsule, but I’ve added extra ones in there in case any get affected through transport mainly. Keep this product cool, just in the pantry, in your cupboard will do well. The dosage rate for this product is two capsules per day, so you take one in the morning and you take one at night. You’re best to take them with food. There is a lot of debate whether to take them with food or away from food. Because you’re going to take the Canxida Restore a long time, it’s not really that critical if you take it with food, before food, during food, after food, between meals, whatever. I don’t really believe it makes that much difference long term with a dietary supplement. If you’re taking it short term, it’s more critical. But a product like this should be taken three to six months minimum to give you a good effect. Don’t think you can get away with taking a probiotic for just a week or two.
Look at my other videos on probiotics. I talk about implantation. How it’s important not just to eradicate Candida and bad bacteria, but it’s critical that you implant the correct bacteria in the wall of the gut to really help improve it. I hope that gives you a bit of feedback on probiotics and also on enzymes and that you learned a little bit from this video. The important things to remember are simplicity when it comes to a product, highest possible quality (very important), correct lifestyle and diet that are maintained along with a high quality product, and you’re going to get an awesome outcome. You don’t need to take tons of products. You just need to take a few very high quality products. I’ve seen too many patients waste too much money on dietary supplements. That’s why I always insist with my clients that they take just a few products, but high quality long term to get the outcome. That way they’re going to save money and not waste it and get the results they’re looking for.
