Candida albicans is a yeast that forms part of the natural flora in the gut. If the gut flora is imbalanced, an overgrowth of yeast can occur and may cause an array of unpleasant symptoms. A Candida overgrowth will increase the likelihood of leaky gut. Candida may be caused by a diet high in sugar or refined foods, imbalanced gut bacteria, stress, antibiotic or steroid treatment, childbirth or long-term use of hormone therapy.
