If Candida has you down, you’ve probably tried antifungal drugs and herbs. If you have, you know they don’t work in the long run, and you know they can cause Candida die off that’s worse than the Candida itself. Candex™ is a better way. It works by “digesting” the cell wall of Candida. The Candida has no defense against this type of action, and Candex™ is the world’s most potent blend of enzymes for this purpose.†

Laboratory studies show that Candex™ inhibits the growth of Candida in vitro. A clinical study of 52 patients showed that Candex™ is safe, effective, well-tolerated, and causes no significant side effects. The physicians who conducted this study concluded “Candex™ should be the first choice for treatment of enteric Candida in our patient population.” Candex™ is recommended by physicians, nurses, natural health practitioners, health clinics, and health food retailers throughout the country.

Candex™ has been the first choice of both consumers and health practitioners for over 15 years for one simple reason. It works. But, it doesn’t just work. It works fast. You’ll begin feeling better in 10 days or less. And, you’ll have none of the Candida die off caused by other products. † Why is it so expensive? Because its enzymes cost 10 to 50 times more than the herbs found in other products.


  • CLINCALLY PROVEN SAFE, EFFECTIVE: Studies show that Candex™ is a safe, effective Candida treatment for both men and women

  • FAST RESULTS, NO DIE OFF: Feel better in 10 days with no Candida die off symptoms

  • FEW DIETARY RESTRICTIONS: You can eat all your favorite foods, within reason

  • MADE IN USA IN cGMP CERTIFIED FACILITY: Consistent quality from one of America’s premier supplement manufacturers


Cellulase Enzymes: A Better Way

Candex™ was the first product formulated which uses enzymes to control yeast overgrowth. Cellulase and hemicellulase enzymes destroy the cell wall of Candida Albicans and without a cell wall the yeast cannot function. Digestive aids do not provide enough enzymes to combat Candida. The enzymes in Candex do not tax the liver and Candida cannot become resistant to these enzymes. When you use Candex™ there is no die-off or Herxheimer reaction, therefore, you don’t have to feel worse before you feel better.†

Occasionally, the amazing job our bodies do to bring harmony among the many co-existing microorganisms essential for our health becomes imbalanced. Oftentimes that imbalance begins in the gut and can then lead to other imbalances throughout the body. Through the years health practitioners of both traditional and modern medicine have understood the importance of intestinal health in relation to whole body health.

More recently, science and other research suggests that different types of enzymes can help our bodies to bring balance back. These enzymes can support the increase of good bacteria that may have diminished as a result of excess consumption of sugars, carbohydrates and other factors.

Although supplementing with probiotics and adjusting diet may help, sometimes these changes are not enough. In these instances, Candex can help support a healthy balance of flora in the body.†

The most potent blend of plant-based, fiber-digesting enzymes available.

It’s so popular that other companies have tried to copy the Candex formula. In attempts to appear unique some companies have added protease (protein-digesting) enzymes to the fiber-digesting enzyme formula of Candex. This may be counterproductive because protease enzymes can compromise the health of probiotics, which are the friendly flora that are essential for good intestinal health.†

Enzyme Functions

Each of the enzymes in Candex is specific for breaking down and assisting the body in eliminating certain types of microorganisms, plant fibers, and carbohydrates that can contribute to an imbalance in the intestines. Supplementing with a complete enzyme formula can help to increase absorption from food among other health benefits.1

Cellulase - Not produced by the human body, this enzyme helps to break down plant fiber walls called cellulose.2

Hemicellulase - Breaks down fibers in plants, vegetables and certain grains and contributes to effective digestion, thus supporting nutrient absorption and promoting good bacteria production.†

Amylase - Primary function is to break down carbohydrates (starches) and is created by the body in limited amounts. An amylase deficiency may lead to digestive issues that come from an excess of undigested carbohydrates. Amylase may also help support a healthy inflammation response in those with certain skin irritations.3

Invertase - Breaks down sucrose (table sugar) and may supports natural digestion and immunity functions.4

Glucoamylase - Specifically assists in the digestion of dense starches such as potatoes and corn, freeing glucose as an energy source for the body.5

How Long Should I Use Candex?

The suggested dosage is two capsules of Candex in the morning, an hour before breakfast, and two at bedtime, at least two hours after eating (always use with eight ounces of water) normally produce profound improvement in 7 to 30 days.

The time needed for maximum benefit depends on individual factors such as current state of intestinal health, gut maintenance or balance goals, whether you're taking probiotics, and other factors such as stress which may also impact gut health.

When you’re feeling as well as you think you should, cut back from four capsules per day to three for a week. Then, take two per day for another week. Finally reduce to one a day. If, at any time you notice any signs of regression as you cut back, resume four per day for another month, and then try cutting back again. While many people completely stop using Candex™, others need one or two capsules per day for maintenance.

When you have attained maximum benefit, you will be able to use one capsule per day without regressing. If consumption of sugar, antibiotics, birth control pills, chlorinated water or stress increase after reducing the dose, you mind find increasing the dose of Candex for a time helps you to bring balance back sooner.

Should I Use Probiotics With Candex™?

We strongly encourage using a high quality probiotic supplement with Candex™, such as any of the Probulin brand or Probiotic 10/50 by Vitalzym. Since there are many brands of both high and low quality probiotics on the market, it's important to let your health care practitioner or retailer guide you to a brand he or she trusts.

A combination of lactobacilli acidophilus, helveticus, lactis andsalivarius, along with bifidobacterium bifidum and streptococcus thermophilus is ideal for those with candida.

Can Children Use Candex™?

Candex is safe for everyone. For children, one may be used daily for each 40 pounds of body weight. For ages 14 and up, adult recommendations may be followed.
