If you have read up on what makes for good colon health then you have most likely heard about Candida and how it can negatively affect your health if there is an overgrowth of it in your digestive tract.
So, what is Candida?
Candida is a fungus that aids with nutrient absorption and digestion, when in proper levels in the body. When it overproduces, the typical candida symptoms may appear. In the digestive tract, left unchecked, it breaks down the walls of the intestinal lining and penetrates into the bloodstream. This releases by-product toxins and other toxins from your system, causing leaky gut syndrome.
