I can tell you that digestive enzimes really help. I'm hypoglycemic, which means my blood sugars go too low and I was waking up in the middle of the night hungry, shaking and sweating and needing food. It was happening in the day time too after about 3 or 4 hours without food. Since taking digestive enzimes this no longer happens. I'm an extreme case but I've heard that candida causes us to not digest our food properly so I would definately recommend taking them.
