6 Natural Ways to Deal with Fungal Infections

Fungal infections are something we all dread to think about. Because they can creep into your body and chew away your health.

So, today I want to share with you the six most important ingredients that help flush the fungal infection out of your body.

Quercetin 

This one is a natural bioflavonoid found in high concentrations in red wine, onions, and green tea.

It possesses strong antioxidant properties that delay the aging process. And, like other bioflavonoids, it has the potential to fortify your immune system.

In addition, it successfully inhibits the growth of cancer cells by:

  • Blocking the blood vessels that feed them
  • Stopping the production of hormones that “feed” the tumor
  • Stimulating the immune system
  • Destroying the free radicals that cause mutations in your body

But quercetin also has a strong anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties. This means that it kills viruses and stops them from wreaking havoc inside your body.

And now, moving on to the second ingredient, which has some truly amazing benefits:

Pine Bark Extract

We are all aware of the power that antioxidants have in improving our health.

But did you know that pine bark extract is one of the nature’s main sources of super antioxidants

Pine bark extract is loaded with oligomeric proanthocyanidin compounds (OPCs). These ingredients can also be found in grape seeds, peanuts, and witch hazel bark.

But the special thing about these OPCs is that they have some strong properties:

  • Antibacterial
  • Antiviral
  • Anti-carcinogenic
  • Anti-aging
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-allergic

One particular study analyzed the antibacterial properties of the pine bark extract essential oil on staph infections, E. coli, and Pseudomonas infections. The results showed that the OPCs in the essential oil of pine bark were highly effective in stopping these dangerous fungal infections dead in their tracks. 

So you can definitely use the pine bark extract as a natural remedy and as a preventive measure against any most types of infections.

And now, going for the third ingredient I want to introduce to you…

Grape Seeds

These are rich in vitamin E, linoleic acid, polyphenols, and other antioxidants. These substances are also found both inside the pulp, and shell, but in much smaller quantities.

Grape seeds are rich in flavonoids and have an antioxidant capacity that is 20 times higher than that of Vitamin E and 50 times higher than that of Vitamin C. In addition, it seems that grape seeds can amplify the power of other antioxidants in your body.

You can also use them to treat or alleviate the symptoms of free radical-related diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and fungal infections. 

The list continues with…

Pomegranates

They are a great source of ellagic acid, as well as antioxidants. The juice is an exceptional source of

  • vitamin A, C, and E
  • Calcium
  • Phosphorus
  • Potassium
  • Iron
  • Folic Acid
  • Niacin
  • Thiamine
  • Folates
  • and Riboflavin

Pomegranate juice has strong anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties that help fight viruses and bacteria. And stimulate your immune system into growing stronger by the day.

Pomegranate significantly reduces microbes and viruses in your body. So they have a positive impact in eliminating these fungal infections. Plus, its anti-microbial properties make it one of the most reliable HIV-transmitting inhibitors out there. Because it has the greatest potential to stop the transmission of HIV.

Moving on to the next ingredient, I must tell you that I found interesting discoveries about the…

Olive Leaf Extract

Certainly, olive oil has earned its well-deserved place at the forefront of health-conscious foods. But did you know that olive leaves also have important benefits for your body? The leaves contain many

  • Bioactive
  • Antioxidant
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Tension-regulating
  • Hypocholesterolemic
  • and hypoglycemic compounds

More and more studies prove that olive leaves are a powerful natural medicine. In addition to the aforementioned ones, the benefits of olive oil include cardiovascular and immune system support, as well as energy growth.

Oleuropein, one of the primary compounds in olive leaf extract, has attracted the attention of specialists for a century now, due to its antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Studies have found that oleuropein, a polyphenol, is a powerful antioxidant.

The olive leaves have antiviral properties, being useful in the prevention of common colds and in the treatment of dangerous viruses. Research shows that this natural extract fights against a large number of disease-causing microbes, including viruses that cause flu and other respiratory infections. Strong compounds found in olive leaves destroy the invaders and prevent the replication of viruses and triggering of the infection.


Arabinogalactans (AG)

And last but, not least is Larix laricina bark that contains tannins, flavonoids, catechins, gum, and organic acids. Its larch includes many essential oils.

AG has long been used as a dietary fiber and has been shown to have significant properties that boost the immune system. But what exactly is AG and where does it come from?

Well, it belongs to a group of carbohydrates known under the name of polysaccharides, which offer numerous health benefits. They are most commonly sourced from the Larix species.

Larch AG acts as a prebiotic, or as a food supply to friendly intestinal bacteria. So, it has a positive effect on the microflora in your gut, protecting the intestinal lining from disease and cancer-promoting agents.

This compound also enhances the immune system through macrophage and natural killer cell activation. By simply stimulating these two immune system components, larch AG can directly influence the body’s ability to kill external invaders such as viruses and bacteria. As well as precancerous or cancerous cells. Not to mention their ability to kill fungal infections.

Now that we’ve covered these six natural ingredients on my list, I have one question for you:

Have you spotted the common benefit?

I’m sure you did! They are all capable of charging up your immune system.

So begin using them and let me know how that went.
