Kills bad bacteria in a week

I have severe chlamydial and salmonella and other bacteria from food poisoning ... this product cleared it all fast!!!!

Terra madre in Northcote VIC have this available! I highly recommend it for vaginal abdominal and bowel bacteria issues!

Purchased in March 2019 at Terra Madre .

Effective Within One day

Fab for IBS-D

My chronic medically diagnosed IBS -D (diarrhoea prominent) benefits highly from this probiotic blend which for a change is not put together for the more generic IBS -X. Saccharomyces cerevisiae (boulardii) strain is proven to work on travellers diarrhoea, LGG on inflammation and the more common probiotic
Lactobacillus acidophilus balances the gut health. It is not cheap by any means but while the individual strains can be found in other cheaper blends, the blend of help for diarrhoea as well as inflammation ... well I haven't found another one on the market.
This product is highly sensitive to heat so avoid buying except from a refrigerator at a chemist near you. Get it home and in the fridge as soon as you can. The live probiotics may not survive survive posting as they must be kept under 8 deg so this highly limits searching for a cheaper wsy to purchase. For me this probiotic is fantastic!

Can you please update the picture of this product to the currently sold product. This picture doesn't look like the one on Aust shelves now. I can't find anywhere to attach new pic.

I cant live without it

I have suffered for years with systemic candida have have spent thouusands of dollars on 'cures' of natural and pharmaceutical treatments with only some short lived relief but nothing beats inner healths candex .the die offs on the 3rd day were scary i wont lie so i stopped for 2days then stared back on again as one captuale per day and it was fine all of my symptoms disappeared i took it regularly for 4 mths just to make sure the overgrowth was out of my syste m.i had candida albicans and candida galbrata(not sure if spelling is correct) positive on a viginal swab i also had through my mouth and digesrive tract i felt like i was so close to death .thank God for inner health plus creating this special bottle i wouldnt be alive today if it wasnt for this

False / misleading advertising

The Chemist told me this product is used for vaginaly thrush, but it had no affect on vagina.

As acidophilus is not able to affect the vagina if taken orally, only when used topically.

The only strains of probiotics that can affect the vagina taken orally are lactobacillus rhamnosus
lactobacillus reuteri

Which I have not been able to find in Australia. I guess this product may have some benefit if you inserted it. But I'm guessing the manufacturer would state that is not its purpose & im sure it has some benefit for gut health but not vagina health, which is what I was false told when I purchased it.

A strange active ingredient

I bought Candex (not to be mistaken for the more popular version under same name from US that has completely different ingredients) to treat leaky gut. Now, I'm a home brewer and am strongly considering the fact that brewers yeast was what bought on the condition in the first place so am suprised to see it listed as an ingredient within the product. I don't think there's sufficient enough evidence to warrant Sach yeast as a cure because it's linked to aceldehyde production which may contribute to leaky gut.

I don't know enough about yeast infection to comment but gut candida, I'm not convinced. Other two ingredients are simply the two most popular probiotics found in yoghurts and other probiotics on the market such as 'inner health plus'. So you could in reality take a probiotic while chasing it down with a nice hand crafted, unfiltered, non-pasteurised home brew for the same effect. Although I do hear food grade brewers yeast, while same strain are somewhat different somehow so maybe don't try that. It is, after all the entire reason I'm here in the first place

EDIT* I just had a thought. Maybe the brewers yeast is there to starve out candida by consuming sugars candida normally eat to reproduce(?) I've since found that it is not home brew that sets off my pompholyx, but alcohol in general (I know, how sad!) So mine is a reaction and probably not candida related at all. My bad. Most people talking about the candidiasis diet to kill of the fungi are starving it as well but the use of brewers yeast would help to iliminate dieting at all due to it's ability to digest simpler sugars down to 90% efficiency in a good environment. This would be less within the gut

EDIT* Well it's been a few weeks and I must say, the fingers have cleared up! It took a little while to 'grow' out but now there's no inkling of pompholyx whatsoever.. I did, however just a few days ago have really bad indigestion/heartburn that lasted for almost 24hrs (which I've never had for more that 1hr before) and a few off itches around different parts of the body but read that can be a byproduct of bacteria being killed off or over taken. I got scared and stopped for 2 days and only just now thinking about continuing on with the 1x pill per day. so far, so good. I'm still somewhat uncertain if it's alcahol related but have had a few drinks since with no reaction. Will update

UPDATE. Well I'm glad to say all's still well. Great product!

Thrush in my ears

I want to say how beneficial this product is. I had itchy ears and doctors gave me so many ear drops and for 3 years I had this but once I started taking a Candex tablet every day I no longer have sore itchy ears and no more ear infections.

Did not help at all

I wish this worked for me as I cannot get rid of vaginal thrush. I've taken it everyday for two months and no sign of improvement. Very expensive too. $34 a bottle. Maybe thing to try is eating a low sugar diet plus seeing a Chinese herbalist


I used this product to treat candida in the gut over 30 days as suggested on the directions i.e. 1 per day. After taking the entire 30 capsules over 30 days the symptoms returned after 2 days so problem not eradicated.

Why use yeast if you want to get rid of it.

I used Candex in the believe it was a good mix of lactobacilli. However, I struggle with yeast infections and I am a strong believer that the additional dose of saccharomyces was not at help and causes additional irritation. Soreness and blood.

reoccuring vaginal infections

I have been suffering with reoccurring vaginal infections for months couldn't get rid of them. Tried everything i believe this product has really helped would highly recommend specially if your always on antibiotics like myself.

Can't live without it

Been suffering thrush for many many years. I have tryed all the remedies out there. Even hormonal pesseries with NO LUCK. A chemist advised me to take this product and i have not looked back. The relief is amazing.

Life Saver. I need a life time supply please!

It is like magic. I have tried multiple methods to try to get rid of my yeast infection ( tea tree oil, vinegar, over the counter medications, yoghurt application etc..) and eventually a health shop owner recommended me this little gem. It really works and you need to have it consistently everyday. After a few months I stopped taking it and tried a cheaper probiotic option but it came back.I am going to stick to this product until the day they stop manufacturing it.
Good results
Expensive, small bottle,

Worked perfectly for my condition. After many months of searching, I found the best probiotic produc

I've been searching for the best probiotic product to work for my health issue. I've tried many brands and wasted a lot of money in the process to learn eventually about Candex. It is specifically indicated to promote women's genetourinary health. I didn't have much confidence in it at first as I've tired some other products of the same brand in the past which did not work. This was completely different. If you are like me and looking for a good probiotic, try this one.
Easy to take vegecaps. Completely tasteless, can sprinkle on food
Price. It is quite expensive

If in doubt, don't be!

There's a few rules to this. You must take it EVERY day and it takes 2-3 weeks to kick in if you've been suffering for awhile with yeast imbalance, but it definitely works! There's been a couple of times where I've figured I could go off it, but within about a week, all the symptoms are back. Definitely glad I found this!
It works wonders!
Needs to be kept in fridge, expensive.

I'd just like to give an update on this. After deliberating for awhile I decided to go off the contraceptive pill. About a month after that I felt a "change". So I decided to try going off this tablet as well to see how I go. I was very pleased to find out that I no longer needed to take this at all! I do find that when I have a lot of sugar every now and then I feel a tingle, but it never gets to a full blown yeast infection. So for anyone looking for a long term solution, I definitely recommend ridding yourself of the pill for a few months to see how you go! :)

Couldn't live without it!!

Works wonders for me and has relieved a few different issues I have been having! I was spending a fortune every month on thrush medication and since using this product I haven't had any further issues or the need for other medication! I would highly recommend it to anyone with the same problem!
Reliable! It works!
A little costly but well worth it!

Great product!

I never used that before and I decided to try it because I get vaginal thrush frequently! After few weeks I felt the difference!! No more ichy no more white discharges!!I did also the treatment with canesten 6 days plus I took 1 fluconazole tablet but often happen to me that it didn't work and I have to repeat it! This time with Candex I feel much better!Sorry guys for my English!!!I'm an italian pharmacist and we don't have such a good product in Italy so please start to sell it in Europe!!I will be the firsts who will reccomend it to my patients!!

inner health candex

an excellent product - just wish it was available in the UK....Used it while on holiday in Oz and was very impressed with it. - please market it in the UK.....we need more products like this over here. Would have brought some back with me - only it has to be refrigerated...so it was a no go on the plane.
Just a very good product
disadvantage was that it had to be refrigerated.

Candex Magic

Living in the northern tropics of Australia I'd been having awful trouble with vaginal thrush for months and was at my wits end with every other chemical thrush treatment under the sun, when a new pharmacist pointed out the Inner Health Candex in the little fridge. Within only a few days of starting them, the difference was great! On particularly hot and sticky days I may get a minor breakout, but thanks to Candex, no more week after week of expensive creams and tablets, and my relationship with my partner is back to normal :)
Helped when nothing else would!
A little expensive, but worth it

Questions & Answers

My partner had jock itch (which is now sorted, but during that time i had been having inner health plus candex, does candex also help prevent from getting a fungus infection? (i never had problems during the course of having those tablets)
1 answer
Yes it does

Is Inner Health Candex SB - recommended for daily use on a permanent basis ?
1 answer
Candex can certainly be used as a preventative measure on a long term basis. However if thrush is persistent there may be disruptions to the immune system or dietary factors that are sustaining it’s presence. I would recommend speaking with a health professional to address these underlying issues.

today I bought a bottle of Candex sb but didnt manage to get it into the fridge until About 2.5 hours later. It was a hot day 29 celcius. Kept it in the car under the seat in its silver foil package, any thoughts please
1 answer
Open a capsule & stir it into a cup of milk or coconut water & place a cloth over in a dark cupboard overnight, if it is still good it will ferment, turn like kefir or yoghurt in 24hrs if not the milk will go off
