The Candida albicans yeast is present in 80% of the population. Usually, it lies dormant; however, it is a very opportunistic organism. C. albicans can grow out of control if you become immune-compromised or help create an environment that is more favourable to its growth (consuming too much sugar for example). The use of antibiotics also reduces friendly probiotic populations that help keep Candida under control.
For women, Candida overgrowth can cause vaginal burning, erratic periods, inconsistent flow and more. In men, libido can be affected. For children, frequent infections can occur.
