Designed by Nature, Confirmed by Science
We have teamed up with a 25-year-old New Zealand Research Company to bring to our customers a product that is unique to New Zealand and proven to be, as or more effective, than pharmaceuticals in combating Candida and supporting intestinal health1.
In addition to the clinical trials, efficacy is also supported through the success of thousands of people using this product worldwide over the last 20 years.
The key to its efficacy is an ancient New Zealand plant called HOROPITO and its main active ingredient polygoidal, which is a powerful anti-fungal proven more effective than other natural products at fighting Candida, and is stronger and faster acting than commonly used pharmaceutical antifungals2. Horopito also contains additional flavonoids, and has been used as an anti-bacterial remedy by Maori, the indigenous people of New Zealand for centuries with an unblemished safety record. It has also shown to be more effective than other natural antifungals like garlic and oregano oil.
More about candida overgrowth and its unknown symptoms
- Unlike vaginal thrush which can give an obvious discharge, you could be unaware if you have a candida overgrowth problem as the symptoms may not be apparent.
- Those other symptoms may include bloating, abdominal discomfort, mood swings, fatigue, low energy, headache or brain fog.
- Men can also have an excessive overgrowth of candida as this can be a factor in abdominal bloating, so, this product is not just limited to women.
- Candida can also be a factor in the inability to lose weight, food cravings and even athlete's foot and fungal toenail infections.
Intestinal health is crucial for general health
Without a healthy ‘gut’ it is simply impossible for you to have vibrant good health. That is why we introduced our Kiwi-Klenz some years ago as part of a daily health regime which is helping thousands of our customers in achieving their health objectives. Kiwi-Klenz works different to our Advanced Candida Support and is a natural prebiotic that supports healthy microflora in the digestive tract.
What is Candida Die-Off?
Candida die-off occurs when your candida cells are killed off too quickly, resulting in an overload of toxins in the body.
Support against candida die-off
We recommend combining with Kiwi-Klenz not only to get better results, but to also ensure optimal support for waste and toxin cleansing to reduce the likelihood of candida die-off. Symptoms of candida die-off are unpleasant and can include brain fog, fever, joint or muscle pain, headaches, bloating and fatigue. Having a healthy well-functioning digestive tract ensures the quick elimination of dying candida and its toxins, minimizing buildup and these unpleasant symptoms.
Advanced Candida Support only needs to be taken at the rate of one soft gel a day for 30 days. Thereafter, if you want to maintain ongoing long term support you can continue to take it for a period of one week every month. This is a very economical and effective way to keep your microflora balanced and healthy.
If you would like to learn more about this product and/or the effects that Candida can have on your overall health please refer to the FAQ section. We are preparing a comprehensive report on this subject along with the data from the various clinical trials conducted over the years and will publish this on the site as soon as it is ready.

What is Candida?
Candida is a microscopic fungus that lives harmlessly in the body of the majority of people. However, certain circumstances such as a weakened immunity, poor diet or stressful lifestyle can cause the body's inner ecosystem to become unbalanced. This is when bacteria such as Candida may flourish into a full-blown fungal infection, also called a yeast infection. This may produce symptoms such as vaginal thrush, athlete's foot or abdominal bloating. Antibacterial and antifungal medications are often prescribed and a number of dietary and lifestyle changes can also be very helpful in encouraging the Candida to 'die-off'. Various natural treatments and plant extracts are also valuable in helping the body regain its equilibrium and support a healthy inner ecosystem. This is where our product Advanced Candida Support is very helpful.
How do I know if I have an overgrowth of the Candida Albicans bacteria?
For the most part, conventional Western medicine does not support that an overgrowth of Candida bacteria may be responsible for a host of symptoms in the body. Therefore, your doctor is unlikely to test you for this. Furthermore, the is no standardised, accepted test to diagnose an overgrowth of Candida.
If you suspect that you may be suffering from this concern we advise seeking the guidance of an alternative medical practitioner such as a naturopath or holistic nutritionist. They may suggest a urine test to help measure the level of Candida in the body, which checks the acidity of the urine. This is thought to be the most accurate testing method, or in some cases a stool sample may be used as well.
Will I experience die-off symptoms when I use Advanced Candida Support?
Advanced Candida Support is a potent and very effective product. If you have a long standing overgrowth of Candida bacteria you may well experience a variety of effects as the product helps to remove the bacteria from the body. Candida may have become quite comfortable, and feel at home in your body and when it 'dies' it begins to circulate throughout the body before it is excreted and a variety of effects may be experienced. Some of the most common are:
- Headache, fatigue, dizziness
- Swollen glands
- Bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea
- Increased joint or muscle pain
- Elevated heart rate
- Chills, cold feeling in your extremities
- Body itchiness, hives or rashes
- Skin breakouts
Not every person will experience all, or even some of these symptoms and the severity at which these are noted will be dependant on the degree of bacterial overgrowth, as well as other dietary, lifestyle and health factors. In most cases the symptoms should be mild and short lived, no longer than two to three days. During this time we advise that you aim to eat a diet high in fresh vegetables and pure water, whilst avoiding sugary and processed foods.
If your symptoms are particularly bothersome or prolonged we advise reducing the dose to one capsule every second day, to allow the body to remove the Candida in a more gradual manner.
What are the symptoms I might experience if I have an overgrowth of Candida in the body?
There are many wide ranging symptoms that may be attributed to an overgrowth of Candida bacteria in the body, but the following list are some of the most prominent:
- Chronic fatigue
- Brain fog
- Digestive issues
- Recurring vaginal yeast infections
- Oral thrush
- Sinus infections
- Food allergies/intolerances
- Fungal infections on the skin and nails
- A weak immune system
- Joint pain
- Low mood
If you are suffering from a combination of these, our Advanced Candida Support may be an ideal product for you to try. The best results will come from using this product along with dietary and lifestyle changes to help remove the factors that 'feed' the bacteria, such as a diet high in sugar and frequent alcohol consumption, coupled with a stressful lifestyle.
What are the benefits of Advanced Candida Support?
Advanced Candida Support is an expertly formulated, bioavailable supplement designed to combat an overgrowth of Candida bacteria and to support overall intestinal health. It contains Horopito a New Zealand native plant used as a traditional antifungal, antibacterial remedy by Maori, the indigenous people of New Zealand. It is well researched and proven to be more effective than other natural antifungals like garlic and oregano oil.
Systemic overgrowth of Candida Albicans bacteria in the intestines may present with a range of symptoms, such as bloating, abdominal discomfort, mood swings, fatigue, low energy and headache. Some people may also experience a difficulty in losing weight, cravings for sugary foods and even athlete's foot and fungal toenail infections.
The antifungal properties of Advanced Candida Support start to function as soon as the product is begun to encourage the 'die-off' of Candida in the intestines. This helps to address the myriad of symptoms experienced in cases of Candida overgrowth. Fostering a healthier intestinal environment is beneficial to support not only the digestive system, but the health of the body overall.
How soon does Advanced Candida Support start working?
Advanced Candida Support may start to address an overgrowth of Candida from the moment it is begun and noticeable symptoms should start to dissipate within the first week of use. However, for the very best benefits we recommend using the entire bottle, for one month, to encourage the most effective long-term results.
How long can I take Advanced Candida Support?
Advanced Candida Support is safe to take on a long term basis. However, the recommended protocol and duration of use will depend on the severity of your symptoms, your daily diet and overall health. As a general guideline, we recommend taking a full dose of one capsule per day, for one month, before evaluating your symptoms and the effects obtained thus far. Most individuals should notice positive results by the end of the first month. However, some cases may require longer. It is perfectly safe to continue taking this product for up to 6 months or more, if your Candida bacterial overgrowth is particularly severe.
Is it safe to double the daily dosage of Advanced Candida Support?
Yes, it is safe to double the dosage from one capsule to two capsules a day. This is a particularly effective way of targeting severe Candida symptoms quickly and effectively. We would advise splitting the dosage up and please ensure you take it on a full stomach with a large glass of water.
Can I take Kiwi-Klenz at the same time as Advanced Candida Support?
Yes, it is fine to take these two products at the same time. Kiwi-Klenz is a fantastic product to help support overall digestive health. Advanced Candida Support may also be used to provide specific support for the bacterial balance of the digestive system. This is not to mention the valuable additional benefits offered by this product such as supporting recurrent vaginal thrush and fungal nail infections and cravings for sweet foods, all of which can indicate an overgrowth of Candida Albicans bacteria.
What is the difference between Advanced Cranberry and Advanced Candida Support?
Advanced Cranberry is designed to specifically to support UTI's and contains Pacran, an ingredient sourced from whole cranberries that is proven to address the bacteria which may contribute to UTI's. It also contains Horopito leaf, to provide added antifungal support, by addressing the Candida bacteria in particular.
Advanced Candida Support does not contain any cranberry fruit extract and includes pure Horopito oil alone, to specifically address the Candida Albicans bacteria and the wider impact that this may have upon overall health, not only on the health of the urinary system.
The Horopito in Advanced Cranberry is in leaf form, whereas Advanced Candida Support it is used in the more potent oil form to provide increased therapeutic benefits.
