Candida Yeast Infections Inhibited by South American Medicinal Herb

Brazilian university researchers have confirmed that a common tree used traditionally as a healing agent has significant healing properties, including the ability to counteract Candida yeast infections.

The researchers, from the Federal Santa Maria University in Brazil, studied the native tree Schinus lentiscifolius - often called the Chilean Pepper Tree - for its wide range of therapeutic properties – used traditionally by South American natives for centuries for the treatment of wounds and acute injuries. This species is not related to black pepper - harvested from the Piper nigrum vine.
