Major brands are, as a group, offering trusted products. Many differ with the form of the vitamin or mineral in addition to the fillers, if used, that may cause a reaction. ConsumerLab offers product testing in addition to indepth information you can utilize to increase your nutritional knowledge.
jgalello, I want to return to finish answering your question as I had an interruption. I like Bestvite's Benfotiamine because of minimal fillers and I favor liposomal vitamin C because it lasts longer, offers better absorption and protects against vitamin C irritation. Liposomal delivery increases absorption levels that otherwise would be ineffective. Curcumin is a good example. I also like olive leaf extract by East Park. Dosage is an individual matter depending if it's for maintenance or a health issue in addition to other factors such as weight and age. You would benefit consulting a health care professional for the best levels to use as a Herxheimer or Die-Off symptoms could result from using high levels too soon.
I have been struggling with candida for over 8 years now. At first I thought it was just chronic yeast infections but after going to multiple gyn's and getting no relief i started going to functional doctors. I've been to 4 functional doctors where I have found out I have celiac disease, allergy to casein, adrenal fatigue, and borderline thyroid issues. I've taken nystatin, and tried the candida diet for 3 weeks with antifungal herbs but it just keeps coming back. I am constantly itchy all over by body (vaginal, eyes, ears, scalp, all over). I get red dots on my skin when it flares up usually on my stomach and armpits. I've also been struggling with chronic fatigue, depression and anxiety, I used to work in a sick building where I was exposed to mold and other toxins that showed up on tests. I'm not sure if I have been able to clear the mold and toxins from my body yet and if that is also fueling the candida. I am so discouraged and upset that its so hard to find a doctor who cares to get to the bottom of this. I feel like I'm at the end of the line and don't know where else to go and what type of doctor can help me next. I am starting to wonder if IV therapy for candida is effective and if i should look into that. Does anyone know of any doctors around Baltimore Maryland who specialize in candida? At this point i am willing to travel any where if it means I can find relief from this.
I’m currently seeing Silvia Hazel, nurse practitioner. She’s getting her functional medicine license soon. She seems to really care to get to the bottom of things.
