Fungal Warrior Antifungal Yeast Infection PillsAs you may have read in the previous yeast infection pill article, Dr. James Duke, the renowned expert on medicinal plants, states that using multiple herbs creates healing synergy.  So, let us dive into the ingredients in Whole Body Research’s Fungal Warrior pill for Candida.  If you would like to get a complete list of ingredients in this product, you can check out this page at Whole Body Research.  Remember, this pill for yeast infections should be stronger due to healing synergy of the herbs than any single herb used alone.

Pau D’arco (Tabebuia avellanedae) for Candida

This plant, indigenous of South America, has been used for medicinal purposes since at least the 1870’s.  In addition to treating a yeast infection, pau d’arco has been used for pain relief, fever, diarrhea, arthritis, cancer, and other health maladies.

Candida albicans is responsible for perhaps at least 80% of all yeast infections; Candida glabrata for about 5%, and the other species of this genus for the remainder of infections.  Consequently, it is important to know how pau d’arco will affect various species of Candida.  One study, published in the Brazilian Journal of Biology (vol.70 no.4 São Carlos Nov. 2010), tested this herb on several different strains of Candida; these included the following:

  • Candida albicans
  • C. dubliniensis
  • C. parapsilosis
  • C. tropicalis
  • C. guilliermondii
  • C. utilis
  • C. krusei
  • C. lusitaniae
  • C. glabrata
  • C. rugosa
Pau D’arco Yeast Infection Pill

The study found that pau d’arco menthol extract was capable of stopping each strain of Candida at very small concentrations.  Thus it is logical to infer that you are probably suffering from one of these species of Candida, and that pau d’arco will be able to inhibit it.

A more personal experience using this herb to cure a yeast flare up was given by Dr. James Duke in his book The Green Pharmacy.  Dr. Duke was unfortunate enough to contract a yeast infection while he was probably away from the United States.  Dr. Duke relates his knowledge on pau d’arco as follows:

This herb contains three anti-yeast compounds--lapachol, beta-lapachone and xyloidine--that show activity against C. albicans and other common problem fungi.  I have personally used a Latin American salve containing pau-d’arco extract to clear up a yeast infection and would do so again if I had another flare-up.

Goldenseal Root (Hydrastis canadensis) for Candida Overgrowth

Goldenseal Root for Candida Infection Pills

If you have never heard of goldenseal before some of the alternative names include: Eye balm, Indian paint, and Ground raspberry.  The chemical berberine is the primary reason why goldenseal can treat a yeast infection.  This plant, as well as other plants that contain berberine (yellowroot, Oregon grape, goldthread, and barberry) can be effective natural medicine for Candida overgrowth.

Goldenseal itself does contain berberine, but other phytochemicals present in this herb also probably contribute to the herb’s anti-Candida activity.  Proving this is a dissertation done by Junio, Hiyas A., Ph.D..  The study took pure berberine and also mixtures of berberine with other chemicals.  On page 54 of the study it discusses how flavonoids present in goldenseal increased the antimicrobial power over a pure berberine solution.  Thus it was determined that the other chemicals in goldenseal had either an additive (the sum of their effectiveness is equal to both solutions effects added together) or synergistic (the sum of the mixture’s effectiveness is greater than the individual effectiveness’ added together) effect.  The conclusion of this matter therefore is that using goldenseal itself will probably be a more effective antimicrobial than simply berberine alone.

Dr. Junio also cited a study which was conducted with goldenseal that was published in Microbial Drug Resistance [2009, 15 (1), 11-17].  The study studied several different herbs, of which one was goldenseal.  The study used drug resistant Candida (azole resistant to be exact, an example of an azole antifungal would be the drug fluconazole) which is becoming more and more common.  The study found that goldenseal would effectively inhibit both drug resistant and drug sensitive Candida.

Oregano leaves from which extracts for yeast infection pills are made

If you did not know; or maybe you have learned by experiencing no relief from antifungal drugs when it comes to yeast infection; Candida can rapidly acquire resistance to azole drugs.  A study demonstrating this was published in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (February 2005 vol. 49 no. 2 p. 783-787).  The study showed Candida glabrata became drug resistant after only 4 days of exposure to these drugs.  The isolates of the yeast tested were obtained well before modern medicine introduced azole antifungal drugs.  If you’d like to learn more you may find this article interesting: Candida glabrata and fluconazole.

Oregano (Origanum) Leaf Extract and Candida

Another ingredient in Fungal Warrior is an extract from oregano leaves.  Oregano possesses very powerful antifungal capabilities and the essential oil is one of the best you can use to treat a yeast infection.  If you’d like to know a little more about the proof that this herbal extract can cure yeast overgrowth, you can check out this page: oregano oil for candida infection.

One study that shows how effective a Candida killer oregano extract is was published in the Brazilian Journal of Microbiology (vol.41 no.1 São Paulo Jan./Mar. 2010).  The study was conducted with a wide assortment of Candida species to ensure the study discovered how well this herb could be used for infections.  In all, sixteen different isolates of Candida were used; the species comprising these isolates included the following:

  • C. albicans
  • C. parapsilosis
  • C. krusei
  • C. lusitaniae
  • C. dubliniensis
Grapefruit seed extract can be used to treat yeast infections

The study found that oregano was able to inhibit and kill Candida with ease.  The researchers proposed that this medicinal herb could be utilized as an alternative treatment for yeast infections.

Of the many studies conducted on oregano oil and Candida, one also used a wide variety of Candida species with oregano.  The study was published in Phytomedicine [2008 Aug;15(8):635-8].  The study showed concretely that oregano oil was effective at stopping the following species of Candida:

  • Candida albicans
  • C. krusei
  • C. parapsilosis
  • C. tropicalis
  • C. guilliermondii
  • C glabrata

Grapefruit Seed Extract for Yeast Infections

Grapefruit seed extract is a powerful antimicrobial; killing both pathogenic bacteria and a wide variety of Candida yeasts.  One study proves this to be true; it was published in Acta Pharmaceutica, The Journal of Croatian Pharmaceutical Society [2004 Sep;54(3):243-50].  The researchers studied 10 different species of yeast; most of these strains comprised of Candida.  The yeast studied were comprised of the following species:

  • Candida albicans
  • C. krusei
  • C. tropicalis
  • C. parapsilosis
  • Saccharomyces cerevisiae
  • Kluyveromyces maxianus

The study found that at a low concentration (about 16.5% grapefruit seed extract) that all yeast and bacteria studied (20 different bacteria were used in the study) were successfully killed at this level of concentration of grapefruit seed extract.  Thus, grapefruit seed extract will make a great killer of probably any type of Candida when it comes into contact with it.  You could also probably use it well as an antibacterial agent as well.

Grapefruit seed for yeast infection


After covering just three of the ingredients in this yeast infection pill--Fungal Warrior--we see that it does contain powerful natural herbs that can safely mitigate a yeast infection.  You should take it orally as it is directed; however, you can also crush the pills up and add them to honey and insert this mixture into the vagina or apply it topically where you show symptoms.  As this site reveals, honey is a great natural remedy for yeast infections that can be used in tandem with other Candicidal herbs.  

If you have a vaginal yeast infection you may be wondering why you need to clear yeast out of your digestive system.  The digestive system is where the yeast that infected your vagina probably came from.  It is easy for yeast to move from the rectum to the vagina.  If you have suffered from recurrent yeast infections, this is probably why you can’t seem to get this problem out of your life.  Simply remove the yeast from your gut and you will stop Candida at its source: the digestive system.

In addition to causing yeast overgrowth, Candida can also release toxins into the body and even make you a little drunk when you eat sugar--if you have enough of it living inside you.  The late  Dr. William Crook wrote many books about yeast and the many related problems it causes.  He has seen men and women with terrible health improve dramatically after undergoing treatment for Candida infection.  This is important to understand in the age of antibiotic use.

If you have a compromised immune system due to HIV, cancer, or any other serious illness, you should deal with your problem right away.  Yeast can, in rare cases, infect the blood and become a serious threat to your health.  This is known as Candidemia (a.k.a. Fungemia).
