| | glucose and candida question.
i don't actually have candida but i'm very interested in alternative medicine, exercise science, nutrition, etc., and so am always looking to educate myself. i also work in a health food store and so the more i know, the better i can advise.
i know that on the candida diet all refined sugars should be avoided as the bad yeasts can feed off the sugar. my question i this though: if someone was to take an isotonic sports drink shortly before working out, and during, would the sugar be simply used as a fuel for the exercise (as glucose passes through the stomach lining and bypasses digestion, so it would in theory bypass the intestinal tract where the candida primarliy breeds) straight in to the blood stream and then to the muscles, rather than lingering in the body longer as a potential food source for the candida yeast. dig? basically, if it was utilised straight away and no excess of glucose was ingested beyond what was needed for the exercise, would it just be okay to take in glucose powder at this time only??
any ideas. i thought i'd throw this open for discussion as the idea interested me.
