CranVerry+ vs. Candida

Along with friendly and unfriendly bacteria, one of the microorganisms that lives in the body’s microbiome is fungi. One is a species of yeast known as Candida, a pathogenic, parasitic, single-celled fungus. But it’s only as bad as it sounds when there is an overgrowth, just like the bad bacteria that serve a purpose when kept in balance but can make you sick when overpopulated in your body.

Three of the most common causes of Candida overgrowth are:

  1. Over-consuming refined carbohy­drates and sugars—Candida thrives on sugar
  2. Drinking too much alcohol—more sugar
  3. Taking antibiotics—kills the bad and good bacteria that keep Candida levels in balance

An unhealthy excess of Can­dida albicans—the most common species—causes candidiasis, a variety of yeast infections that can affect the mouth, skin, stomach, urinary tract, penis or vagina. Fortunately, AIM has a natural solution that can help alleviate and prevent Candida overgrowth.

Candida-Combating Ingredients in CranVerry+

In addition to proanthocyanidin-rich cranberry extract providing an anti-adhesive effect on urinary bacteria, there are three additional ingredients in CranVerry+ with properties that combat Candida yeast: resveratrol, beta-glucanase and mangosteen.

Candida Death by Resveratrol and Mangosteen

Sourced from giant knotweed root for the CranVerry+ formula, resveratrol is a phytonutrient that occurs naturally in plants and acts like an antioxidant, protecting the body from damage. In the March 2015 issue of Current Microbiology, research shows that resveratrol’s anti­fungal activity brings about the death of Candida albicans.1

One of many unique tropical fruits, mangosteen has a thick, deep purple peel that protects its delectable white sections of fruit. CranVerry+ contains a concentration of mangosteen fruit and its protective rind that provides a wide variety of natural antioxidants called xanthones. A 2009 study published in the Journal of Oral Science reveals that a mangosteen xanthone called alpha-mangostin kills Candida albicans within 20 minutes of exposure.2

Biofilm Destruction by Beta-Glucanase

The slimy shield that encloses and protects Candida albicans is called biofilm, which allows this yeast to multiply and cause infections. Research published in the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules 2018 issue shows that an enzyme called beta-glucanase eats away at beta-glucan, the main structural component of biofilm.3 Weakening this shielding slime with the beta-glucanase in CranVerry+ can make it even easier for antifungal resveratrol and mangosteen to go for the Candida kill.

Oh My … Candida!

Back in the early 1970s, when Lisa was told she had Candida, she asked her doctor, “What does Tony Orlando have to do with my privates?”

“I don’t understand,” the doctor replied.

Lisa rolled her eyes and sang the chorus of the hit song: “Oh my Candida . . .  we could make it together.”

With a quizzical look indicating he was not aware of Tony Orlando or Dawn, her physician answered “Is this some kind of a joke?”

Lisa gave him a puzzled look of her own and shook her head in disbelief as he handed her a prescription.

Back then, drugs were frequently prescribed (and still are) to treat the symptoms of candidiasis: itching, swelling and irritation caused by an overgrowth of Candida albicans, one of the most common fungal pathogens of humans. Even after taking antifungal medicine, women like Lisa continue to have recurring infections.

In all seriousness, Candida yeast infections are no joke to people who are affected by them . . . or named after them. In fact, the popularity of the song “Candida” actually caused a spike in baby name usage after it was released. Like many tunes of the time, the song eventually faded away as did the popularity of the baby name.

Unfortunately, Candida infections live on in unpopularity to this day and will very likely continue to do so in the future. Fortunately, a natural health product called CranVerry+ can help put an end to Candida.

The Growth of Candida

In the human microbiome comprised of bacteria, fungi, such as Candida yeast, and other microorganisms, there needs to be balance to prevent harmful overgrowth of the potentially harmful kind. Candida cells multiply when there are fewer good bacteria to keep them under control. And this out-of-control yeast needs to be killed off. CranVerry+ contains three ingredients that are very effective in Candida destruction.

Candida-Killing CranVerry+

The key ingredient in CranVerry+ is cranberry extract, which is natural remedy for urinary tract infections caused by bad bacteria. The proanthocyanidins in cranberries help to stop bacteria from adhering to the lining of the urinary tract, so the bacteria end up slip slidin’ away and out of the body.

And the plus in CranVerry+ is three additional ingredients that have unique Candida-killing properties:

  1. Resveratrol

This natural antioxidant from Japanese knotweed is an apoptosis inducer: brings about the death of Candida cells.

  1. Mangosteen

The presence of natural antioxidants called xanthone gives this tropical fruit the ability to kill Candida within twenty minutes of exposure.

  1. Beta-glucanase

This enzyme breaks down beta-glucan, helping to destroy the biofilm that protects Candida cells and allows them to multiply.

With a plus 3 on your side in the form of CranVerry+, saying you have Candida doesn’t stand much chance of becoming a broken record.

A New Reason to Use Cranverry+

Cranverry+-300x233

Cranverry+ is very good at what it does. It promotes urinary tract health and protects the body against the candidiasis, more commonly known as a yeast infection. Most of us don’t deal with these problems on a daily basis, knock on wood. So you might then say, “Hey, now that my UTI problems are all gone, what will I do with the rest of my Cranverry+?”

Well, folks, some new research indicates that resveratrol is good for more than just keeping the bladder blues at bay. It also has been directly linked to heart health. Resveratrol–a compound commonly found in wine but also in Cranverry+–has long been associated with cardiovascular wellness, but the mechanisms, the hows and whys, were unknown. A collaboration of researchers from all across Europe finally figured out the process by which resveratrol protects against cardiovascular problems.

From Medical News Today

“The researchers discovered that the natural substance binds to the regulator protein KSRP and activates it. KSRP reduces the stability of messenger RNA (mRNA) in connection with a number of inflammatory mediators and thus inhibits their synthesis. We now know more precisely how resveratrol inhibits the formation of the inflammatory factors that trigger cardiovascular diseases.”

“This is an important finding in view of the fact that more recent research has shown that cardiovascular diseases are significantly promoted by inflammatory processes in the body,” said Pautz. Cardiovascular disorders, such as myocardial infarction and strokes, frequently occur in association with chronic inflammatory diseases, such as arthritis. The natural substance resveratrol thus has major therapeutic potential, particularly when it comes to the treatment of inflammatory diseases that can cause serious damage to the cardiovascular system.”
