Candida releases ammonia--so THAT'S why it stinks so bad!!

I was wondering why, after doing enemas, the slimy candida-related stuff that comes out at the very end has such a DISGUSTING smell to it, I mean just indescribable. It is like some sort of chemical sewage smell that makes me gag; far worse than normal fecal odor.

Well, here's the answer. Candida produces and releases AMMONIA to adjust the pH of its environment (our bodies) to its liking.

"We report here that C. albicans can actively alter the pH of its environment and induce its switch to the hyphal form. The change in pH is caused by the release of ammonia from the cells produced during the breakdown of amino acids. This phenomenon is unprecedented in a human pathogen and may substantially impact host physiology by linking morphogenesis, pH adaptation, carbon metabolism, and interactions with host cells, all of which are critical for the ability of C. albicans to cause disease."
