I will be waiting with anticipation on Shroom's answer here, too.
The bio tech firms produce ethanol by feeding a certain strain of the Candida organism none other than Xylose. The test they use to "Gauge the success of this transfer" is none other than the Protein Electrophoresis method.
The human body might not be a plant, but history has proven that we can learn a lot about our ownselves by studying the chemistry of other living things. That said, plant or human, I find a great deal of interest in this common practice by the bio tech firms.
Why is this relevant? The Protein Electrophoresis blood test in humans remains to be a key area of focus for several of the autoimmune disorders, even Multiple Myeloma.
That said, based on what we know w/ ag science, on the surface, at least, xylitol (Xylose) would seem to be the absolute last thing that you'd ever want to take in the presence of a Candida infection. Others, however, believe that this glyconutrient does exactly what you mentioned above-the complete opposite.
I will be watching for Shroom's answer with the greatest of anticipation, indeed.
