    Default nobody is answering but maybe someone will. why xylitol (sugar) not feeding yeast?

    i've been learning a lot reading posts here... much, much better education re sd than curezone..
    one of the things i would add in my cera ve facial cleanser is xylitol.. i would also add xylitol to acv which is what i use when i have flare..
    until i get my climbazole by mail..

    anyway, i'm just curious i know xylitol is not same as table sugar but it's also sweet.. wouldnt malasezzia feed on it?

    I just read on Tom PDF that bacteria and yeast don't metabolize zylitol. Ok not sure how accurate is thay but I'll just take his word for it

    "Xylitol has beneficial effects on both the oxidative killing of bacteria in neutrophilic leucocytes and on the survival of rats with experimental pneumococcal sepsis."

    "In conclusion, S. mutans biofilms grown in xylitol-supplemented medium with endogenous glucose for 24 h did not show a reduction in the bacterial viability or metabolic activities, as measured by culture growth, vitality, respiratory activity, EPS production and glucose consumption, compared to biofilms grown in glucose-containing control medium evaluated at the same growth stage. In contrast, the upregulation of glucosyltransferases suggests that the combined presence of xylitol and glucose was effective in influencing the gene expression of glucan- and biofilm-associated genes in a different way than either sucrose or pure glucose."

    "It is true that xylitol itself does not feed candida directly like sugar does. As a result, this artificial sweetener is even promoted as a useful part of the Candida Diet. Unfortunately, the fermentation of undigested xylitol in the gut most definitely can exacerbate yeast problems. Don’t be fooled by this argument! This is exactly why consuming xylitol can make some folks so gassy and even trigger cramping and diarrhea. Gut pathogens having a heyday in your intestines give off a lot of smelly toxins!"

    "This study suggests that xylitol has the potential to affect the metabolism of daidzein by altering the metabolic activity of the intestinal microbiota and/or gut environment."
