Brain Fog and Mental Issues

Not only does the fungus physically invade our different organs, but there are problems unique to the Central Nervous System, because it is difficult for the blood to clear the brain of toxins through of the blood/brain barrier. When Candida cells die, they can release as many as 80 different toxins, including ethanol and acetaldehyde.

As Candida fungal cells naturally die off, they can release acetaldehyde, in particular, which has a whole host of detrimental effects on your health and well-being. It can impair your brain function and even kill brain cells. Your endocrine, immune and respiratory systems can all be affected and it also damages the membranes of your red blood cells, reducing their ability to carry oxygen around the body. Again, this lowered oxygen level directly affects your brain, so you can see how acetaldehyde is linked to Candida symptoms like brain fog and fatigue. These by-products also cause allergic reactions and inflammation that lead to an array of undesirable symptoms.

Having Candida in the Central Nervous System is a major health issue and should be dealt with as early as diagnosed.
