General dosage recommendation:
Titrate MegaMycoBalance up to 2 softgels 2 – 3 times a day. If you experience die-off symptoms, reduce to the previous dosage where you didn’t have this issue.
Die-off symptoms are similar to flu like symptoms with body ache, feeling tired, maybe developing gas.
You can add MegaIgG2000 or MegaMucosa to assist with die-off symptoms.
MegaIgG2000 can help to absorb those toxins that are being cast off and MegaMucosa helps with gut lining restoration.
If you are on MegaSpore, MegaMucosa, and/or MegaPrebiotic you may use those products in combination with MegaMycoBalance.
If you don’t have a health care provider and you would like to get an email consultation about the products listed above, please feel free to contact me. All supplement consultations will be free of charge.
Candida albicans is a yeast that occurs naturally in the human mouth and intestines. In small amounts, this natural fungus can aid in nutrient digestion and absorption, but an overgrowth can damage the intestinal lining and release toxic byproducts directly into the circulatory system. If not addressed quickly, Candida overgrowth can become chronic and lead to fungal skin infections, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, autoimmune disease, brain fog, mood swings, vaginal infections, and even seasonal allergies. However, the most damaging aspect of a Candida overgrowth is the fact that it can puncture holes through the intestinal lining.
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found a direct correlation between vaginal yeast infections & simultaneous overgrowth of Candida in the digestive tract. As a result, MegaMycoBalance can support a healthy balance of vaginal flora by restoring balance to the intestinal flora.** Yeast balance is a concern for both men & women.
MegaMycoBalance is formulated with undecylenic acid and bee propolis to support healthy yeast and fungal balance in the body. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found a direct correlation between vaginal yeast infections and simultaneous overgrowth of Candida in the digestive tract. As a result, MegaMycoBalance™ can support a healthy balance of vaginal flora by restoring balance to the intestinal flora.

Undecylenic acid is an organic fatty acid derived from castor bean oil that supports a healthy balance of yeast in the gut. Pathogenic and opportunistic yeasts, like Candida albicans, spread quickly through the intestines by creating tiny roots, or hyphae, that can become deeply embedded in the intestinal wall. This embedment of hyphae makes it very difficult to control yeast overgrowth in the body. MegaMycoBalance™ can help support a healthy yeast balance in the gut by targeting these roots.
Bee propolis is a waxy, resinous material that bees use to line their hives in order to protect against bacteria and fungi. Propolis has been found to have inhibitory activity against many fungal species, including Candida albicans, C. krusei, C. glabrata, C. tropicalis, and Trichosporon species. Together, these ingredients can help better balance fungal populations in the gut microbiome.
Hyphal Candida albicans Causes Mucosal Barrier Dysfunction and Leaky Gut
Candida albicans is a commensal fungus commonly found in the mouth and within the gut microbiome. When kept in a healthy balance, Candida is generally harmless and can often aid in digestion, but an overgrowth can be detrimental to the gut microbiome. When it begins to spread, Candida will form short growths known as germ tubes that eventually differentiate and grow into hyphae, which are longer outgrowths that resemble tiny roots. The hyphal form of Candida albicans is especially destructive because it can invade intestinal epithelial cells and cause significant tissue damage. Once the intestinal lining becomes porous and hyperpermeable, endotoxins from the intestinal lumen, like lipopolysaccharide (LPS) can enter directly into circulation, triggering an innate immune response that often results in sub-clinical, low-grade inflammation.
