My guess is 'no'...

Triphala is made from fruits, but three fruits specifically chosen to help strengthen, balance, and cleanse the digestive tract. The bloating doesn't necessarily mean it's 'feeding' the candida. It could be 'fighting' it...it could be helping to get rid of it, and/or other possibly nasty bugs in one's gut.

Also...looking at it a different way, if one eats some meat and potatoes (or similar) for dinner, and halfway through decides to have a bowl of fruit...that often causes bloating, gas, etc., -- due soley to the strange combination of foods eaten at one time. Fruit is usually best to eat before a meal, or an hour or so after a meal.

You might try using half as much tonight, and make sure to take it a couple hours away from meals. Some of the bloating may also be due to it interacting with other foods...

???

Just my two cents. :Retro smile:
