Who should take the test?

Are you suffering from digestion problems? Concerned about your fatigue and sleeping disorders? Perhaps you are struggeling with skin rashes?

About a third of people have candida in their mouth, gut or vagina. Candida are yeast fungi that we usually absorb through food without noticing. As long as we have a healthy gut flora, we eliminate these yeasts without further consequences for our body. Candida is usually harmless, but can spread and cause candidosis if the immune system or the gut is weakened.

The test analyzes the values of the following analytes:

  • pH-Value
  • Candida albicans
  • Geotrichum candidum
  • Yeast

Our Candida Test gives you information about the candida concentration in your gut. In case of a detected candida overgrowth, you can work to restore the balance of your gut as a healthy gut flora is the best protection against future candida infestation.

How does it work?

You collect the samples at home, send them back to us and we will provide you with your level of each analyte and whether your level falls within the reference ranges for your age. In addition to that, the results include graphs showing whether your are in the “green” (=normal/healthy) or “red” (=too high/low) area, making it easy to understand the results.

What will my results tell me?

Your results will provide detailed information about whether your pH-Value, candida albicans, geotrichum candidum and yeast levels are normal, low, or high compared to reference ranges in your age group. You can then discuss the results with your doctor or health practitioner, who can give you further guidance and treatment recommendations.

What guidance will I get along with my results?

We always recommend the discussion of the mailed results with your doctor or practitioner. Although we do not offer therapy service ourselves, we will gladly assist you in finding a suitable therapist in your area. Besides, further information is available on our website, especially in the different test categories, under “health conditions” and the FAQs. Still have questions?

Test measures
For the Candida Test we analyse:
  • pH-Value
  • Candida albicans
  • Candida spec.
  • Geotrichum candidum
  • Yeast
pH-Value

Fecal pH is influenced by numerous factors, but is largely dependet on the fermentation of fiber by the beneficial flora of the gut. With a balanced diet the fecal pH should lie between 6,2 and 6,8. Acid fecal pH indicates disorders of intestinal ecology. An alkaline fecal pH indicated an imbalanced intestine flora. It is possible that proteolytic putrefactive germs are predominant, which raise the fecal pH through alkaline metabolites (e.g. due to a high-protein diet).

Candida albicans

The genus Candida is comprised of approximately 200 different species. Candida albicans is the most common strain of them. It is a normal part of the gut flora and most people have some level of Candida albicans in their intestines. But a combination of factors can lead to an overgrowth, which then leads to several undesirable symptoms including fatigue, weight gain, joint pain, and gas.

Candida spec.

Increased candida species indicates deficiancies in colonisation resitance, disturbances of the intestinal flora and or a defect mucosa. Candida species may burden the body with toxic metabolites. Some patients respont to even low rates of yeast overgrowth.

Geotrichum candidum

Geotrichum candidum belongs to the Endomyceteaceae family. This organism can be found in soil, dairy products and in human skin and mucosae. Symptoms of Geotrichum infection have been associated with diarrhea and enteritis.

Yeast

An infection with yeasts can have many reasons. Possible causes are things like corticosteroid therapy, stress, diabetes, malnutrition or birth control pills. All of them weaken the immune system and a weakened immune system cannot control yeast or help you get rid of it. Antibiotics are also a common cause of yeast infection because they destroy the good bacteria that keep it under control.

    Prompt delivery and got what I asked for. I should have done the more comprehensive test though, as I still don*t know what causes my symptoms (it*s not Candida).

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

Why shouldn't you eat unwashed fruit or vegetables before using the mouth swab?

There are often tiny traces of fungi on unwashed fruit and vegetables. These are completely harmless for a healthy body, since the immune system prevents the fungi from multiplying in the body. Nevertheless, the fungi are still inside your mouth for a certain time and can therefore be detected in the test. In order to assure correct results, it is advisable to wash fruit and vegetables well in the 2-3 days before the test.

How do Candida infections develop?

Candida is everywhere around us and usually also present in small numbers in our intestines. However, the immune system and our gut bacteria prevent it from spreading. If the intestine is weakened, for example when the "good" intestinal bacteria have been decimated by antibiotics, the fungus can multiply unhindered.

How can candida be treated?

Depending on how strong the infection is and where it is located, different treatment options are possible. However, it is always important to strengthen the intestinal flora at the same time so that it can prevent future infections itself. An intestinal flora analysis can be useful for clarification.
