Candida albicans yeast

A yeast infection is caused by the Candida Albicans strain of yeast. Every human being has this yeast living in them and is usually harmless. When something happens to the natural bacterial balance, or someone’s immune system becomes weak the Candida turns into it’s fungal form, and then people start getting symptoms.

When the Candida mutates into it’s fungal form it grows hooks ( rhizoids ) that grab hold of the service of the body, and then the Candida starts overpopulating that area.
