Candida Diet: The Foods & Supplements to Eat (and Avoid) to Treat Candida - Dr. Axe


Top Candida Diet Foods

Here are some of the foods you should eat on the candida diet.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar
The acid and enzymes in apple cider vinegar help to kill and get rid of excess yeast in the body. (1)

2. Sauerkraut & Fermented Foods
Fermented foods like sauerkraut and kimchi contain microflora that help protect the intestines. Regular consumption can help improve the immune system, making the body less hospitable for candida. (2)

3. Green Veggies & Green Drinks
Leafy green vegetables help alkalize the body, which fights against the acidic nature of yeast overgrowth. Greens contain no sugars but high amounts of magnesium that naturally detox the body, vitamin C to build the immune system, chlorophyll to cleanse the body, B vitamins to energize the body and iron to give the body full support. (3)

4. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has antimicrobial properties and the combination of lauric acid and caprylic acid found in coconut oil kills off harmful candida through ingestion and topical application. (4)

5. Stevia
We know that sugar feeds candida. That’s why it’s important to use different sweeteners, and stevia is the perfect choice for those on a candida diet. Not only is stevia an antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic agent, but also helps balance the pancreas, which is often comprised when someone has candida. (5)

6. Garlic
Garlic contains a large number of sulphur-containing compounds that have extremely potent, broad-spectrum antifungal properties. Raw garlic benefits the fight against candida specifically. (6)

7. Ground Flaxseeds & Chia Seeds
Polyphenols found in flaxseeds and chia seeds support the growth of probiotics in the gut and may also help eliminate yeast and candida in the body. (7)

8. Unsweetened Cranberry Juice
Cranberry juice without added sugar helps to correct the pH levels of urine, helping to prevent the overgrowth of fungi like candida. (8)

9. Cultured Dairy
Having cultured dairy, preferably goat milk kefir, for healthy probiotic foods can effectively kill the candida in your system and increase your healthy flora. (9)

10. Spices like Turmeric & Cinnamon
Turmeric contains an active component called curcumin that has been shown to completely inhibit the growth of Candida Albicans (as well as lots of other fungal strains). (10) Cinnamon can heal oral thrush because studies have shown that people who supplement with cinnamon generally suffer from less candida overgrowth than those who don’t.
