Friendly bacteria grow and other microorganisms are naturally found in the gastrointestinal tract and are a vital part of the healthy microbiota of the gut. Unfortunately, an overgrowth of the naturally occurring candida fungi can release toxins into the body. Fatigue, thrush, skin infections and headaches are common symptoms of candida overgrowth. Otherwise known as a yeast infection, candida colonies can be controlled through diet.

Candida is fed by sugar, starch and alcohol. A candida diet starves the yeast fungus, restoring the body back to its normal balance. Some people choose to follow a so-called Candida diet to inhibit the growth of this common fungus.

Omega-3 fatty acids have both anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. These essential fatty acids, which are found naturally in wild salmon, may help limit the growth of yeast. A daily dose of 0.4 to 2 grams of these essential fatty acids is typically recommended to help fight against candida overgrowth.1ND, Eric Bakker. ‘Is Fish Oil Good for Yeast Infections’, 22 June 2020. Yeastinfection.org, www.yeastinfection.org/is-fish-oil-good-for-yeast-infections. This equates to just one small serving size of salmon, which contains roughly 1.8 grams of omega-3 goodness.

Adding salmon to a candida diet is an excellent way to reduce an overgrowth, and wild or freshly caught salmon are healthier choices than farmed salmon.
