What Is Symbion?
Symbion™ contains three strains of highly effective beneficial spore-forming lactic acid bacteria that have been proven to not only get the aggressive candida strains back under control and in balance with our body's natural ecosystems, but to prevent the overgrowth of the aggressive strains of candida in the future. Symbion™ bacteria cause the body to become a more balanced alkaline and pH levels normalize, a condition the candida yeast simply cannot thrive in (candida thrives in an acidic environment). As these friendly bacteria crowd out the overgrowth of candida yeast and toxic bacteria in the intestines, symptoms eventually disappear altogether. These strains are highly antifungal (candida is a type of fungus), as well as being beneficial strains. As the bacteria kill off the candida in the gut, they also stimulate the growth of healthy gut bacteria. Probiotic strains that you find at the health food store and elsewhere may be beneficial for people without an overgrowth of candida, but they will do nothing to get control of the candida fungus.

The Scientific Definition:
Candida albicans is a commensal, normal, human mucosal inhabitant, and can cause disease when antibiotics, corticosteroids, birth control pills, immune suppression or surgery occurs.
Candida albicans is only one of a few species of yeasts found in and on humans. It prefers sugar or glycogen-rich, moist environments. Candida thrives on human mucosal tissues, like the mouth and gastrointestinal tract, where it competes with the more numerous and simpler bacteria. Candida is a fermenter, as are most yeasts. Fermentation enzymes inside the Candida yeast cells generate energy and molecules for growth and survival of the yeasts. Sugar and hydrolyzed glycogen are the raw materials for fermentation. Read More
