What is a Candida Test?
This test analyzes Candida antigen and IgG, IgA, and IgM antibodies specific to Candida to help identify an overgrowth of the fungus, suspected to be the underlying cause of a number of symptoms. While joining one of our coaching plans, we will guide you to effectively modify your diet to reduce candida overgrowth.
- Easy to use: At home test
- Collection Method: Dried Blood Spot
- Measures: Candida antigen, IgG, IgA, IgM antibodies
Candida is a fungus, a form of yeast that lives in your mouth and intestines in small amounts. Its job is to aid with digestion and nutrient absorption. However, when it is overproduced it breaks down the wall of the intestine and penetrates the bloodstream and suspected to be the underlying cause of a number of symptoms.
Our Candida Antibodies and Antigen panel analyzes Candida antigen and IgG, IgA, and IgM antibodies specific to Candida to help identify an overgrowth of the fungus.
*High levels of specific IgG antibodies against Candida may be indicative of past or ongoing infections.
*High levels of specific IgA antibodies against Candida are thought to be associated with mucosal epithelial, tracheobronchial, and genito-urinary candida infections.
*IgM antibodies are generally regarded as the predominant immunoglobulins involved in early infections.
The detection of Candida antigen in serum may suggest that mucosal and immunological barriers have been overwhelmed

How It Works?
After ordering the testing kit, we will provide you with all the information you need about the process. In addition, we will send you a short questionnaire to understand your preferences, history and goals. After receiving your test (3-5 business days) your coach will guide you with the instructions in order to perform it correctly. You will get a pre-paid label to ship the specimen back to the lab. Results are between 10-14 business days from the day that shipping has arrived back to the lab. We also send each result to a third-party lab interpretation company for accurate understanding of the results.
