Candida and pH

Effect of pH and human saliva on protease production by Candida albicans.
G R Germaine and L M Tellefson
The elaboration of extracellular proteolytic activity by Candida albicans during growth in laboratory broth or in human whole salivary supernatant was investigated. Growth of the organism in broth at pH 3 to 7 followed by assay of culture supernatants at pH 4 (optimum for activity) indicated protease was only present in cultures grown at a pH of less than 5. In contrast, growth in sterile human whole salivary supernatant over the pH range of 3 to 7 uniformly failed to result in production of protease. Growth of the organism at pH 4 in broth supplemented with saliva resulted in a saliva-dependent inhibition of protease production. Although the addition of up to 16% (vol/vol) saliva had essentially no effect on growth, 4% saliva caused a 50% reduction in proteolysis of substrate protein. Due to the low pH requirement for protease production and activity and the demonstration that saliva is a potent inhibitor of protease synthesis, we conclude C. albicans most likely does not produce extracellular protease in the human oral cavity.

From another board I am banned on:
Hi Ya'll, Some supposed Experts are trying to tell folks that Candida grows because of an Alkaline environment? If this were True, then How is it possible all these folks have found Healing from Candida by learning to Alkalize?
"Testimonials" were posted below. The testimonials as usual do not prove anything. Reading through many of the testimonials I noticed one thing in common. They all mentioned making changes in their diet. Especially moving from junk foods to healthier foods. This of course would have improved immune function. Does it show any evidence of making oneself alkaline cures Candida. Not at all. If making oneself alkaline was all that one needed to get rid of Candida then hyperventilation would be a cure all for Candida. Of course we all know that this is not the case. This is one of the reasons testimonials are not evidence of effectiveness.
