Fungalite Phase 1 is a unique combination of Olive leaf extract with 20% oleuropeins, Garlic powder, Grapefruit seed extract, and the calcium salt of the fatty acid undecyclenic acid, calcium undecyclenate, all of which have been shown to have antifungal or antimicrobial activities.
Fungalite Phase 1 contains:
- Olive leaf extract
Olive leaf extract contains Oleuropeins, which have been shown to be effective against candida albicans within 24 hours. It appears to work by interfering with the production of important amino acids within the fungal cells that are essential for their survival. Oleuropeins have also been demonstrated to stimulate phagocytosis (the engulfing and gobbling up of microbes by your own immune cells)
- Garlic Powder
Garlic powder contains many antifungal compounds including allicin, allin, allinase and S allycysteine. Some studies have shown garlic to be more effective than Nystatin at killing candida.
- Grapefruit seed extract
Grapefruit seed extract has strong antimicrobial properties against a wide range of gram negative and gram-positive organisms. It disrupts the bacterial membrane and liberates the cytoplasmic contents within about 15 minutes, according to the paper “The effectiveness of processed grapefruit-seed extract as an antibacterial agent: II. Mechanism of action and in vitro toxicity”.
Studies performed in 1990 found grapefruit seed extract to be more effective than 30 antibiotics and 18 fungicides in its antifungal capacity.
- Calcium Undecyclenate
Calcium Unecylenate is the calcium salt of an 11 carbon mono-unsaturated fatty acid, called Undecyclenic acid. It appears to work in an antifungal capacity by interfering with the fatty acid biosynthesis of the fungal hyphae or germ tubes. The salt form of Calcium undecyclenate appears to be, according to this monograph on Undecylenic acid, 4x more effective than undecylenic acid alone in its antifungal capacity.
Medium chain fatty acids such as undecyclenic acid have been shown to disrupt the pH of the fungal cell cytoplasm by being proton carriers.
This formula contains natural antifungal and antibacterial ingredients that you can supplement your diet with, to strengthen the immune system and contribute to the body’s defences against external agents.
Those looking for a more natural antifungal approach (typically against yeast and candida), through nutritional support. Along with a low sugar diet and probiotic supplement or food, antifungals are crucial in any anti-candida plan.
Fungalite Phase 1 should be taken with Combocillus, a combination formula of 7 important probiotics. Probiotics are best taken at night before bed. After any fungal infestation of the gut it is important to normalise the flora and fauna of the gut. Use of this broad-spectrum probiotic enables restoration of the normal gut bacteria.
This is a very important part of any anti-candida program and recovery in addition to minimising intake of refined sugars that will feed a fungus.
We have recently improved the formulation of Metabolics Fungalite Phase 1. We removed the Cloves as the Eugenol oil in combination with the other ingredients causes some issues involving the capsule to split. By removing this we then were able to increase the strength of the other ingredients based on their anti-fungal/anti-microbial properties. The new formula continues to offer a unique combination for supporting your anti-fungal/anti-microbial nutritional requirements.
We continue to sell Metabolics Cloves as a single fill supplement which can be taken alongside Fungalite phase 1 should you require additional support.
