Don’t use coconut sugar if you have candida! This is the most important thing you need to understand from this post, it’s the fact that coconut sugar is just simple sugar, yes, it’s a fancy name, it makes you dream, it makes you think that you are dealing with an exotic food, full of fibers, vitamins, and so-called “enzymes”!
But the reality is that coconut sugar is just simple fructose, and it’s what candida thrives on, even worse, it leaves your gut flora starving, in other words, your good bacteria are not going to have anything to eat, this way, they will not increase in number, and even worse, this will leave candida and other by funguses and germs to propagate your colon and cause other damages!
Why I say this?
Because most people nowadays think of coconut sugar as an alternative to white sugar, and because it has a distinctive taste, they think that it’s very beneficial for our health!
Well, it’s not, it’s highly refined, only has some few antioxidants, which are very little, and even worse, by consuming it and adding it to your food, you are saturating your taste buds, which will give you a feeling of satiety very quickly, even worse, this will prevent you from eating good foods, good starchy foods, like potatoes, whole wheat bread, corn, and other oral grain and whole vegetables.
In fact, you should avoid processed foods and ingredients as much as possible, including coconut sugar as they are not going to satisfy any nutrient need in your body, they are just going to contribute to high sugar levels in your blood and cause a dangerous insulin spike that can be very bad for your overall health!
Now, I don’t advise using coconut sugar if you suffer from candida, in fact, you need to avoid sweeteners as much as possible, and from now on, the best sugar you can use is date sugar, at least, you are dealing with a whole fruit.
