There are some misconceptions or misunderstandings regarding yeast and yeast infections, and one of the most commonly asked questions we hear is this: Is yeast for baking the same as candida yeast?" The answer is a resounding no. They are completely different things. However, they are not unrelated, and if you avoid baked goods made with bakers yeast, it will probably be beneficial to your candida yeast infection. Here is why…
First of all, the scientific name of the substance that causes a yeast infection is Candida albicans while that of bakers yeast, which is also brewers yeast is Saccharomyces cerevisiae. It is interesting to see in the root of those words, references to sugar and the Spanish word for beer. More importantly, though, you can see that they are two utterly different, even though they are both single celled fungi. That is right. Candida is actually a fungus, and at least externally, it can successfully be treated with the proper fungicidal remedy.
But let’s get back to what was mentioned earlier about why if you avoid eating baked goods, you will probably help your yeast infection clear up faster. That is because baked foods usually contain a lot of white flour and many of them have lots of sugar. Both sugar and white flour products are rated very high on the glycemic index, and that means they raise your blood sugar level very quickly, an environment in which the Candida overgrowth flourishes. So, by eating foods that are lower on the G.I. scale, you can make life tougher for your yeast infection.
Now there is a safe, homeopathic remedy for treating yeast infections in women and men. Yeastrol is different from other Candida treatments, because it comes in a convenient spray form that is not as messy as creams and works faster than pills.
