QUESTIONS & ANSWERS ON DIDA
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our gut is populated with millions of microorganisms, creating our unique gut flora. Those microorganisms (including good bacteria and Candida albicans) help us digest food and stay healthy. When Candida albicans overgrows, however, for example after taking antibiotics, when living a high stress lifestyle or when eating an excess of sugar and starches, this small fungus (yeast) can cause unpleasant symptoms including bloating, constipation or diarrhea. It can also cause difficulties to concentrate, focus and memorize and can negatively affect mood, which can make you more irritable, feeling tired and worn out. Similar to baker’s yeast used for making bread rise, Candida albicans feeds on simple sugars and produces gas as a byproduct. When Candida overgrows in the intestine, gas continuously accumulates leading to a bloated-looking belly and flatulence. dida contains oregano and cinnamon extract and a variety of other plant extracts, which provide a range of antifungal, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties designed to inhibit candida overgrowth and reduce associated symptoms of bloating and gassiness.
DOES IT RELIEVE BLOATING AND FLATULENCE?
Yes, dida is composed of highly effective plant extracts that have anti-fungal and antiseptic properties, which help relieve bloating and flatulence.
HOW DO I GET THE MOST OUT OF USING DIDA?
Avoid eating simple sugars, yeast, dairy (lactose) and alcohol, while taking dida. Because dida may inhibit the growth of some “good” gut bacteria that help us digest food, it is recommended to take a probiotic culture during and at the end of your treatment with dida to rebuild your intestinal flora.
HOW LONG SHOULD I TAKE IT FOR?
We recommend taking dida for a minimum of 4-6 weeks, as this is the time it takes to see results. If, however, symptoms worsen or if after 6 weeks of treatment there is no improvement, consult a health care practitioner to rule out any other cause of your symptoms. Otherwise, if your overall health and digestive symptoms improve, you can continue to take dida.
WHEN/WHY SHOULD I TAKE DIDA?
If you feel easily bloated, gassy and full after eating just a little and these symptoms get worse throughout the day, and you have little energy and feel tired and crave sweets, then you may suffer from intestinal Candida albicans overgrowth. In this case, dida, with its anti-fungal and carminative properties, could help you relieve those symptoms.
CAN DIDA BE TAKEN FOR A VAGINAL YEAST INFECTION?
dida is not designed to cure a yeast infection. However, if you are a person who is more prone to getting yeast infections, dida will help balance Candida growth in the digestive flora.
