YEAST

Microscopic fungal organisms that thrive in warm, moist environments, including the human gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Normally harmless, intestinal yeast can overgrow as a result of antibiotic use, stress, poor diet, and other factors, triggering a wide range of health problems.

Yeast can be thought as “bad” or “mutant” bacteria that can only feed off refined, processed table sugar. Normally bacteria lives on the skin, throughout the entire intestinal tract and vaginally. Over 80% of bacteria are beneficial and important to good health. Antibiotics kill infective bacteria, but also kill good bacteria thus allowing yeast to take over. Symptoms of yeast include indigestion, gas, bloating, acne, vaginitis and sinusitis.
