While researching effective natural cures for yeast infections, we came across a supplement called Yeast Away by Peak. We conducted a thorough analysis of the product to gain a better understanding of its benefits and effects. Our findings are outlined below.
What is Yeast Away?
Yeast Away consists of cellulose enzymes that the manufacturer says are beneficial for the intestinal tract. These enzymes rupture the walls of overabundant Candida cells in the intestinal tract, allowing smooth yeast digestion without releasing any toxins. An overgrowth of candida in the body can lead to yeast infections, which cause symptoms like heartburn, swollen and painful joints, intestinal gas, rashes or whiteness in the mouth, and vaginal discomfort and discharge.
The supplement consists mainly of three probiotics, which help in building strong, healthy gut flora.
- Lactobacillus acidophillus
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus
- Lactobacillus casei
- Cellulase Enzymes
The manufacturer recommends taking 2 capsules before breakfast and 2 capsules before bedtime for a period of 30-60 days. Children under the age of 4 can take one or two capsules twice a day.
Subsequently, for maintenance, take 2 capsules before bedtime only.
As with any other health supplement, it’s best to consult a doctor before starting a course of treatment.
Yeast Away is available in two bottle sizes. A bottle with 48 capsules is available at $23.95; a bottle with 120 capsules and costs $52.95.
Possible Side Effects
This supplement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). You are therefore recommended to seek medical advice before taking the capsules. In particular, pregnant and nursing women are advised not to use the supplement without consulting their doctors.
We were unable to find any money-back guarantee offered by the manufacturer. The lack of a guarantee suggests that the product might be unreliable and it is thus best to consult with a physician before buying these capsules.
The Bottom Line
Yeast Away contains ingredients that purportedly help to break down the cellular structure of candida organisms and thereby aid the body in combating the effects of yeast infections. This is a point in favour of the supplement. However, the lack of a money-back guarantee is cause for concern.
