Candida Cleanse Tonic Recipe
In our modern world, maintaining optimal gut health has become increasingly vital. An imbalance in gut flora can lead to various health issues, one of which is candida overgrowth. Candida is a type of yeast that naturally exists in our bodies, but when it grows it turns into a fungus and can cause a range of symptoms and compromise our well-being.
Adding a tonic to your candida diet can be a great way to give your body lots of anti fungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties all in 1 glass!
What is Candida Overgrowth?
Candida overgrowth occurs when the delicate balance of microorganisms in the gut is disrupted. Factors such as poor diet, stress, antibiotics, and weakened immune function can contribute to excess of candida. As it becomes overgrown it turns into a fungus and forms an exoskeleton called chitin, (the same stuff that lobsters and cockroaches have!) it’s essentially a fortress wall for candida and diet alone can not get to the root of an overgrowth.
For that you need the CCWS Candida Cleanser, its active ingredient is called Lufenuron, and its role is to attack and break down chitin so your body has a fighting chance at healing.
Common symptoms of candida overgrowth include:
- digestive issues
- brain fog
- recurring yeast infections
- skin problems
- muscle/joint pain

Key Ingredients for a Candida Cleanse Tonic:
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV): ACV is a potent ingredient with natural antifungal and antimicrobial properties. It helps restore the acidic environment in the gut, which is unfavorable for candida growth. ACV also aids in digestion and detoxification.
Ginger: Ginger possesses powerful anti-inflammatory properties and supports digestion. It can soothe gastrointestinal discomfort and enhance the body’s natural detoxification processes, contributing to a healthy gut.
Lemon: Rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, lemon promotes detoxification and supports the immune system. Its acidic nature aids in balancing the gut’s pH level, creating an environment less favorable for candida.
Turmeric: This vibrant spice is well-known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Turmeric supports liver function, which is crucial for detoxification and maintaining a healthy gut.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon offers both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory benefits. It helps regulate blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation, and combat candida growth.
