Quoting from optibacprobiotics website:

"Saccharomyces boulardii is unique in this database of the world's best probiotic strains, in that it is a non-pathogenic, transient (non-colonising) yeast, originally extracted from the lychee fruit, rather than a bacteria. S. boulardii is the only yeast that has been formally recognised as a probiotic, and it has multiple mechanisms by which it confers benefits to its host. It is recognised as having a broad anti-pathogenic action, due to its sticky outer surface which attaches to pathogenic bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Salmonella, and removes them from the digestive system. As a yeast itself, a much larger micro-organism than a bacterium, S. boulardii is able to effectively compete with and displace harmful yeast strains such as Candida. As part of its survival technique, it also produces anti-fungal substances such as capric, caprylic, and caproic acids, which discourage pathogenic yeasts in its environment."

"Start with 1 capsule twice a day (morning and evening) for the first week. Increase to 2 capsules twice daily for the second week. By the third week increase to 2 capsules three times daily. However you may find that sufferers don't need to reach 6 capsules a day, and that 3-4 work fine to reduce symptoms. It is advised that patients stay on this dose for a number of weeks/ months until you feel the Candida has sufficiently left the system, or until the appropriate tests have confirmed this. Just to note – it is recommended that you take S. boulardii away from other anti-fungals (2 hours gap should be enough). S. boulardii can sometimes cause constipation at high doses."

Quoting from imperfectlynatural website:

"Saccharomyces boulardii is an internationally acclaimed probiotic in the treatment of diarrhoea, IBS, IBD and Candida overgrowth. Although S. boulardii is a yeast itself, studies have shown it to reduce the levels of C. albicans in the body, by up to 90%. It does this through various methods. Firstly, being a friendly yeast it has the ability to seek out the same binding sites on the intestinal wall lining as C. albicans and effectively “crowd” it out, more effectively and directly than probiotic bacteria can. Secondly, S. boulardii produces and excretes capric, caprylic and caproic acids as well as other beneficial compounds. These compounds have been shown to actually kill C. albicans cells, as well as inhibit its ability to adhere to the intestinal lining and prevent biofilm formation. When trying to eradicate Candida overgrowth from the body, it is common to experience a side effect known as ‘die off’. This occurs when Candida albicans are destroyed and begin to breakdown in the body, releasing up to 70 different toxins into the bloodstream. This can cause existing Candida overgrowth symptoms to appear to worsen in the short term. It may be possible to experience ‘die off’ when taking S. boulardii probiotics, for this reason it’s best to build the dosage gradually."

Caution: This product may kill the beneficial bacteria. Follow up with bacteria based probiotics.

Quoting from dralexrinehart website:

"The medium chain saturated fats, caprylic and lauric acid, are found naturally in coconut oil and may inhibit growth of Candida according to research as old as 50 years. Monocaprylin and monolaurin are more biologically active monoglyceride forms than the triglyceride forms: caprylic acid and lauric acid. Monolaurin (also known as Lauricidin) has been demonstrated in the lab to reduce Candida albicans growth by 99% in as little as two minutes, and complete inhibition in five minutes. While caprylic acid and its monocaprylin form may be more potent for Candida infections, monolaurin may be more well tolerated at higher dosages. Monolaurin is also more selective, meaning that it focuses on the bad guys and leaves more good guys. Monolaurin also offers a wider spectrum of anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral activity than caprylic acid. If you have fungal overgrowth, there's higher risk that dormant viruses may become active, or bacterial overgrowth also exists. This makes monolaurin interesting because not only has it demonstrated anti-Candida properties in research, it may also offer support for any co-existing bacterial and viral infections, as well as synergy with other anti-fungal medications."

Quoting from the lifeextension website:

"Sex hormones exert significant influence over BPH development and progression. While many men are aware of a pro-growth role of a testosterone metabolite called DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in prostatic hyperplasia, few know that estrogen may also contribute to BPH"

Quoting from nicolejardim website:

"One of the most important functions of the liver is to break down and remove excess hormones from your body. There are two phases of liver detoxification. Fortunately for many of us, our phase 1 detox works really great so things get moved through pretty fast. Where we run into problems is phase 2 – it tends to be much slower. This creates a bit of a bottleneck and eventually a lot of the not-quite-broken-down toxins spill back into our system because the liver can’t accommodate them anymore because of the backlog. Glutathione is the master of all antioxidants and it is required by your body so it can properly detox every day. Basically it just mops up all the mess and helps your body get rid of it. Boost your glutathione levels with N-Acetyl Cysteine which is a precursor to glutathione."

Quoting from bulletproof website:

"the more fat cells you have, the more estrogen you will make. The more estrogen you make, the more fat you store. And then you make even more estrogen, and store more fat, and so on until you have more estrogen and fat than you know what to do with. Natural herbs and supplements like milk thistle, dandelion root tea, dandelion greens, glutathione, and calcium d-glucarate support the liver and help get rid of excess estrogen and all the other day-to-day yuck we run into."

Quoting from healthline website:

"Researchers have discovered that vitamin C may help increase glutathione levels by attacking free radicals first, thereby sparing glutathione. They also found that vitamin C helps reprocess glutathione by converting oxidized glutathione back to its active form. In fact, researchers have found that taking vitamin C supplements increased glutathione levels in white blood cells in healthy adults. In one study, adults took 500–1,000 mg of vitamin C daily for 13 weeks, leading to an 18% increase of glutathione in white blood cells. Another study showed that taking 500 mg of vitamin C supplements per day increased glutathione in red blood cells by 47%."

Quoting from gatewaynaturalmedicine website:

"glutathione is one of the most potent and powerful antioxidants in the human body. Here is the good and the bad: the good is our body has the ability to produce glutathione, the bad is due to our current lifestyle and environment most of us are deficient. Supplement NAC- this is my favorite way to increase GSH. NAC is not only the basis to glutathione production but it on its own processes powerful antioxidant properties as well. Pattern 2 (over consumers) these patients encounter or produce too many free radicals for the GSH to keep up, systemic yeast is a common denominator in these patients as yeast are both toxins and consumers of GSH."

Quoting from ncbi website:

"The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of orally administered Lactobacillus reuteri (L. reuteri) versus nystatin in prevention of fungal colonization and invasive candidiasis (intestinal yeast overgrowth). CONCLUSIONS:
Prophylactic L. reuteri supplementation is as effective as nystatin, and more effective in reducing the incidence of proven sepsis in addition to its favorable effect on feeding intolerance."

Quoting from wheatbellyblog website:

"There are about a dozen studies that demonstrate that L. reuteri probiotic supplementation may yield some dramatic age-reversing effects. Increased blood testosterone levels in males dramatically (by up to 800% over the negligible levels seen in aged mice), as well as increasing testicular size. Was associated with slenderness, in comparison to overweight/obese unsupplemented mice. Was associated with greater physical activity and increased muscle mass."

"So we start with L. reuteri ATCC PTA 6475 provided by the Swedish company, BioGaia. Their product is called Gastrus and combines the ATCC PTA 6475 strain with the DSM 17938 strain. (Just Google “BioGaia Gastrus” to find a retailer.) Problem: There are only 100 million CFUs (live organisms) per tablet. I have not observed any substantial health benefits by ingesting the tablets. So I have been amplifying bacterial counts by making yogurt. The yogurt is thick, delicious, and contains a marked increase in bacterial counts. it is likely that trillions of CFUs are present (in one quart). People who consume 1/2 cup per day of this preparation are reporting the effects listed above."

Product review: Custom Probiotics L. Reuteri Powder
"Start with one adult scoop (0.8 gram, 224 billion cfu’s) of the probiotic powder first thing in the morning on an empty stomach (30 minutes prior to eating). Dissolve the powder in a glass of de-chlorinated water and drink it. The highest dosage we recommend is four adult scoops a day."

Quoting from amazon.com website:

"For about 2 years now I been in awful pain. At times too debilitating to work but had to work because I wouldn't be earning a paycheck.
I've been diagnosed with acute chronic prostatitis by a Urologist held in very high regard. He's had me on again off again with antibiotics and other prescription medications. At first it was working only for the pain to return. ...another trip the to the Urologist. Again being placed on another antibiotic. And this event repeated time after time with no hope of healing and was told that there is no cure for prostatitis.
Now, any man who is dealing with and has been diagnosed with prostatitis knows what I'm talking about. The constant pain in and around your pelvic region, pelvic floor, unable to urinate, burning sensation, the sensation of an enlarged prostate, unable to empty your bladder, etc.
I've spent hours and hours reading medical journals and articles about this condition trying to find a nature treatment to no avail.
Then I came across this you tube audio from a holistic doctor. He start talking about non-bacterial prostatitis. And that many man were misdiagnosed with bacterial prostatitis and should be treated as a fungus infection or Candida. So I came across this product from Pure Essence labs called Candex. I figure what do I have loss.
To my amazement it worked! I've been taking it for 5 weeks now. The pain disappeared. The difficulty of urination, a thing of the past! I have my life back! I go through a whole day without thinking about the pain or the constant trips to the bathroom."

Quoting from draxe website:

"So which strains earn a spot as the best probiotic for men? Here are a few of the best probiotics specifically targeted towards certain health issues for men:

Lactobacillus fermentum: in vitro studies show that this strain of bacteria could help lower cholesterol levels to promote better heart health.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus: although more research is needed, some animal models and in vitro studies have found that this type of bacteria may help block the growth of certain types of cancer, including bladder and liver cancer.
Lactobacillus sporogens(Bacillus coagulans): in addition to aiding in the prevention of urinary tract infections, Lactobacillus sporogens (was renamed Bacillus coagulans) may also help reduce the recurrence of chronic prostatitis.
Lactobacillus gasseri: this powerful form of probiotic can help reduce belly fat to prevent abdominal obesity, one of the leading risk factors for conditions like heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
Lactobacillus reuteri: some research in animals has found that this strain may help sustain healthy testosterone levels and testicular size in aging mice."

Quoting from ncbi website:

"Broad band, short-lasting antibiotic therapy in association with a nutritional supplement (serenoa repens [saw palmetto], lactobacillus sporogens [bacillus coagulans] and arbutin) show better control and recurrence rate on patients affected by chronic bacterial prostatitits in comparison with antibiotic treatment alone."

Product review: PROBIOGEN Men’s Vitality Probiotic

Ingredients:
Vitamin K2 MK7 50 mcg
Saw Palmetto 150 mg
Boswellia 150 mg
Bacillus coagulans, bacillus clausii, bacillus subtilis 130 mg (4 billion cfu)

From GNC website: "I take this product in place of several different supplements that I used to take for prostate & gut health - it has it all in one capsule, and a great probiotic formulation that's made a big difference in my digestive comfort"

Quoting from blog.nutri-tech.com.au website:

"Benign Prostate Enlargement (BPE) is an affliction so common after age 50, that it is now virtually considered “normal”. It is now thought that some form of prostatitis is behind BPE. There are three forms of prostatitis including:

Acute bacterial prostatitis – this condition features painful, urgent, frequent urination and often fever. It is caused by bacteria that have migrated from the urinary tract.

Chronic bacterial prostatitis is a longer-term condition characterised by vague, persistent lower back and perineal pain.

Chronic non-bacterial prostatitis is more common and is based upon inflammation.

At a recent prostate conference a South American researcher stated that he had found candida infections in 13% of the patients he had checked. Candida is a yeast that is present in all of us but it is normally kept in check by beneficial gut organisms. Unfortunately, our probiotic organisms are assaulted on a daily basis with antibiotics, food stabilisers, stress, drugs and the contraceptive pill. Consequently, candida overgrowths are very common. Some researchers claim that candida is negatively affecting over 50% of the population! Candida may be a player in your prostatitis if you have had no response from antibiotics.

The starting point is to adopt an anti-candida diet for at least four weeks. It is critically important to remove sugar and carbohydrates from your diet as these creatures feed on sugar and you need to starve them out. Then you need to hit them with a combination of anti-fungal herbs, immune stimulants and probiotics.
