Is Candida bad? What is Candida? Candida is a fungus, and the most common type is called Candida Albicans also most commonly known as a yeast infection or overgrowth. Normally a little candida is useful because it assists with nutrient absorption and digestion when it is balanced. However, when candida growth is too high, it can cause all kinds of health problems. Most people do not know that they have Candida and yet it is usually the start to many severe infections, symptoms and illnesses. You usually cannot see candida which makes it hard to catch, and its symptoms are related to so many other conditions that it is easily missed.
Here is a list of several symptoms that candida is usually behind:
Bloating or Belching
Chronic sinus and Allergies
Fatigue and Mood swings
Vaginal Itching, Burning or Discharge
Weak Immune System

The feeling that you can never recover from and illness easily.
