Well, funny you should ask, LOL! I MEANT to order SF722, but ordered SF742 by mistake.
FORMULA SF722 is a safe and effective supplement for the normalization of the microbial ecology of the intestines in mild to moderate cases of candida infection. We find it particularly useful because of its gentle action which in most cases does not provoke strong yeast die-off reactions. The active principle in this product, 10 Undecenoic acid, derived from castor bean oil is non-toxic and markedly more potent as a yeast fighter than caprylic acid and many of the other commonly available plant derived anti-candida agents.

Signs and Symptoms
Candidiasis is an extremely common and serious health threat these days and unfortunately, many individuals have no idea that this is the cause of their health problems. It is characterized by a host of signs and symptoms such as: fatigue, diminished libido, chronic sinus congestion or infection, abdominal distention, gas, joint and or muscle pain, thick tongue fur, lack of mental clarity, fatigue, inability to concentrate, loss of memory and diminished reading comprehension, strong cravings for sweets and starches, lowered immunity, skin rashes and itches, thrush, itching of the auditory canal and scalp, vaginal yeast infections (recurrent in most cases), anal itching, jock itch, athelete's foot, fungal infections anywhere on the skin as well as recurrent itching without signs of rash.
The primary cause of this condition is a severe disruption in the normal microbial ecology of the digestive tract known as intestinal dysbiosis which may be brought about by several factors, either individually or in combination, the most common being: The overuse of pharmaceutical antibiotics as well as antibiotics from food sources (beef and chicken), overconsumption of sugars and refined grain products, underconsumption of protein rich foods and foods containing live active cultures of lactic acid bacteria (such as high quality plain yogurt).
Any immune compromising influences such as chronic viral infection or radiation exposure, intestinal parasites (more common than most people realize), dental Amalgam (mercury containing) fillings, long term steroid therapy, exposure to toxic chemicals and chemo-therapy are likely to make the body more susceptible. The condition may also be sexually transmitted and contracted by persons with diminished immune capacity.

TO ENHANCE THIS PRODUCT'S HEALING POTENTIAL: It is essential to make dietary changes that will starve the yeast organisms in the gut. Since the large numbers of friendly and unfriendly micro-organism that reside in our intestines compete for space, it behooves us to feed the friendly and starve the harmful micro-organisms. This is accomplished by avoiding all Sugar containing foods (this includes fruit and fruit juices, honey, corn sweeteners, etc.) all refined carbohydrates (white flour products such as most breads, bagels and pastas), avoiding most fermented and yeast containing foods (best to avoid bread all together), and focusing on eating non starchy vegetables, animal protein such as fish and organically raised beef, chicken and lamb and only small amounts of brown rice as a source of starch. Be sure to consume as much raw garlic (preferably with purple skin) organically grown parsley and uncooked high quality olive oil as you can tolerate.
We strongly recommend the use of the following supplements along with FORMULA SF722 to optimize the body's capacity to neutralize toxins produced by candida organisms as well as maximizing your immune system's potential for combating candida. Molybdenum, Pantethine, Wow Drops and Complete Thymic Formula. If fatigue is a major concern, also consider Iso Cort. In chronic and recurrent conditions be sure to get tested for intestinal parasites by your health care professional. An effective, broad-spectrum herbal antiparasitic that also exhibits strong antifungal action is Tricycline.
Companion Diet For Our Candida Clearance Rotation Protocol
Use of Friendly Bacteria
We strongly advise the use of a high grade and resiliant strain of lactobacillus supplement such as Lactobacillus Sporogenes which unlike other strains of lactic acid bacteria is resistant to stomach acid and does not require refrigeration. Should you choose a supplement containing different strains such as acidophilus of bifidus, be sure to take it on an empty stomach and at least one hour before eating to ensure its viability while passing through the stomach.
