What You Should Know
Solaray Yeast Cleanse is listed on the official Solaray website, the manufacturer website and third-party vitamin websites and none of these sites offer any description of the product. We assume from the supplement name that the ingredients are supposed to cleanse the digestive system. The word yeast leads us to believe this supplement has something to do with candida, a yeast that sometimes grows in the intestine and causes negative side effects, but this is just a guess. Even if there were long product descriptions with clinical research supporting the ingredients in the formula we would throw the red flag due to a potential interaction between two ingredients in the formula.
List of Ingredients
Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Caprylic Acid, Pau D’Arco, Grapefruit Seed Extract, Garlic Extract, Licorice and Tea Tree Oil.
We have reviewed quite a few Solaray supplements and this is the first supplement that leaves us bewildered. There is no information on the supplement available from the official website or any other website listing the supplement for sale. We believe the ingredients are meant to reduce yeast in the digestive system, but dieters should not have to guess about the health benefits of a supplement. The manufacturer should list the potential health benefits in the product description and offer support for those claims.
Candida is a yeast that grows in the intestines. Some people are sensitive to certain foods that may promote yeast growth and thus these foods should be avoided. If dieters with yeast problems are afraid of candida growth, products like Solaray Yeast Cleanse may help fight candida and restore overall health. This product is not your typical cleanse. It does not contain ingredients to loosen bowels or increase the number of bowel movements, but it does contain one ingredient commonly found in supplements aimed at fighting candidiasis – pau d’arco.
In high doses, pau d’arco may cause excessive bleeding and profuse vomiting. Other side effects include dizziness and diarrhea. This supplement is not considered safe for all dieters and should never be given to children. Before taking a supplement containing pau d’arco, dieters should take with an herbalist about potential interaction with prescription medications or other supplements.

After finally learning our assumptions about this product were correct, we found an ingredient that could cause death. There is no supplement on the market worth taking if one of the potential side effects is life-threatening. We suggest dieters, even those suffering with a candida infection, skip pau d’arco and any supplement containing this ingredient.
