Candida only occurs whenever the saliva pH is below 6.5. The average being around 5.8-6.0. A NORMAL human saliva has a pH about 7.3. A candida obviously will grow at optimum pH between 5.5 to 6.0. Therefore a raising the saliva pH to a normal 7.3 or at least above 7, plus adding some sea salt 1/4 teaspoon per drinking water one liter, should usually do the trick. This will discourage their growth by simply normalizing the acidic pH of the saliva away from the pH at which the candida can grow. The best ones I found in alkalizing the saliva pH is the potassium citrate, 1/4 teaspoon taken twice a day, but in more serious condition it may need 1/2 teaspoon twice a day in a 1/2 to 1 glass of water taken slowly. Sodium ascorbate will alter the ORP (oxidation reduction potential) thus discouraging their growth that way, but it's always the potassium citrate or potassium bicarbonate in about the same dose should get some grip to the candida issue. Vitamin D may worsen the condition my raising the calcium level, and therefore magnesium is required supplement if vitamin D should be taken as most yeast require calcium for their unneeded growth. Magnesium is antagonistic to the calcium.
