AntiFungal Activity Against Candida 

Another amazing study on Apple Cider Vinegar. It often gets a bad wrap because of the life bacteria in it. But this study tested 18 samples... I know it wasn't a lot, but really how many samples do you need to see something happening? Right?

- 13 (72%) of them were positive for fungal growth
- 6 were Aspergillus niger
- 1 was Aspergillus flavus
- 2 were Candida albicans
- 4 were Non- Candida albicans.

Apple cider vinegar(5%) inhibits growth of Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Candidaalbicans and Non- Candida albicans with average diameter of inhibition zones of 15mm, 13mm, 17.5mm, 17 mm respectively, while the average diameters noted with acetic acid 2% were 10.5mm, 11mm, 13mm, 13.5mm respectively.

Fluconazole {a medicine that is used to treat fungal infection} (5mg/ml) inhibits growth of the Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus with average diameters of 14mm,20mm respectively,while cause no inhibition of Candida albicans and Non- Candida albicans.

The Conclusion: Apple cider vinegar and acetic acid have significant antifungal activity at the tested concentrations against Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, AND fluconazole resistant Candida albicans and Non- Candida albicans!!

Clinical studies are also underway in Australia, Japan, Europe and India using esential oils against Candida. The present study indicates that clove oil and eugenol have considerable antifungal activity against clinically relevant fungi, including fluconazole-resistant strains, deserving further investigation for clinical application in the treatment of fungal infections.
