C. Silver drives candida from the intestines into other parts of the body where the silver can't be concentrated enough to kill it. (well it could be but you'd have to take enough to be a blue man). C. silver also accumulates in some tissues to toxic amounts so I advise against long term use of it. So I don't consider it a good candida killer. Yes it can kill skin infections of it but if you have it on your skin then you have much more deep inside you. What I use with success is the candida Zapper by Bioelectric. With it you can zap your whole body and the candida has no where to go to that is safe.
