I find this IP6 information interesting, I hadn't heard about it before. Here's another web site, albiet, they're selling the stuff, but still interesting.

This statement, in their sales pitch, if true, is of extreme interest to me. "Iron is the energy used by pathogenic bacteria, viruses and fungi. It is important to note that IP 6’s function to block iron is a significant player in destroying cancer cells that need iron to proliferate
I'm still following my anti-candida diet (2 years now) because I feel a lot better on just the diet than I ever did on the Avonex. So if IP6 will help eliminate iron, the "energy" used by candida, I'm all for it. Healthy nutritional protocol is safe enough, but even nutritional supplements can be dangerous when not used correctly. But given what we are learning about the excess iron in our brains, the stenosis, etc. I’m willing to add yet another supplement to my arsenal. I like to call my supplements my “weapons of mass destruction” as related to my MS!
I do find it interesting though in all my candida reading, I’ve not come across a reference to iron as an energy source for candida. I have read that sugar is candida’s main food source though. (And I’ve eliminated sugar from my diet now for the last 8 or so months.) And I believe I read something to the effect that Zamboni mentioned in his research how the iron was located all along the veins in the brain and that it was what was having the negative effects on our myelin. So thanks for the info, I’ll do a little more research on IP6 and talk with my doctor about adding it in the mix.
