FAQs

  • A. Para-Gard® and Candida Complex™ are dietary supplements designed to support healthy intestinal flora. Para-Gard contains high potency botanical concentrates and standardized extracts shown to exhibit activity against a variety of intestinal organisms in in vitro and in vivo studies.1 Candida Complex, on the other hand, provides Tyler Encapsulation's exclusive Pro-Flora blend along with acid-stable plant enzymes and traditional herbs. The probiotics present in Candida Complex aid digestion by supporting healthy intestinal balance.2 Additionally, the plant enzymes help break down all food types, further supporting healthy digestion.3-5 Because the ingredients in these formulas act in different ways, they should not interact, and may in fact, work synergistically to support healthy digestion. However, because individual responses to dietary supplements may vary, certain individuals may require additional digestive support to produce regular bowel movements. Adding our Fiber Formula is a safe and effective way to support gentle detoxification and healthy digestive.

  • A. Para-Gard® contains goldenseal, an herb with a long history of safe use, particularly in Native American cultures. Alkaloids from goldenseal, particularly berberine, support the body's immune response.† Goldenseal is widely considered safe for short-term use; however, standard references differ on its long-term safety. The ABC Clinical Guide to Herbs does not give any caution for long-term use of goldenseal, stating that it is considered non-toxic at recommended doses (.5 – 1.0 gm/day).1 On the other hand, the PDR for Herbal Medicines concludes that goldenseal should not be taken over an extended period of time. It does not state what constitutes an extended period or the dosage amount needed to provoke adverse reactions.2 Other references point out that goldenseal has not been subject to long-term study as their reason for discouraging long-term use. Many dietary supplements containing low levels of goldenseal (less than 500 mg/day) have been safely used without adverse effects. However, goldenseal is best suited to those conditions that require a temporary immune boost.† We would recommend that consumers using a goldenseal product for over eight weeks consult with their licensed healthcare practitioner.
