Merlak is a good quality strong probiotic which quickly helps to replace the healthy bacteria in the digestive tract, particularly in the colon. This helps to build the Immune system. The modern typical Irish diet is high in yeast and sugar and on an everyday basis causes a low grade candidiasis. Low energy, mood swings, anxiety, fungal rashes, PMT, poor sleep and many other symptoms can make life miserable. The use of drugs, especially antibiotics, contraceptive pill and hormone replacement also reduces the beneficial bacteria which keeps us in good form and health. People taking regular alcohol e.g. wine and beer also benefit greatly from probiotics.


Candida is known as a modern illness. Our grand-parents ate a low yeast and sugar diet; Porridge, home made soups, wholesome dinners, soda bread and fruit and vegetables. There is no doubt that avoiding all forms of yeast and sugar relives Candida symptoms. However, most people find this type of diet difficult. In Breath of Life many patients find Merlak a God send, making life a lot easier!


Merlak may be taken, 10 drops twice daily on an empty stomach while following a normal dietor while avoiding yeast and sugar. The more severe the symptoms, the stricter the diet needs to be. Merlak helps repair damage which may be caused by antibiotics. It may be necessary to take it for 8-12 weeks following prolonged antibiotics. There are no known side effects, just good effects. A four week course (1 bottle) is a good pick me up or can be taken as part of a Detox. Some patients report no adverse effects from alcohol and take it before going out to parties, wedding and special occasions!


Merlak was developed in a laboratory by a microbiologist in University CollegeCork. It is 800 times stronger than natural yogurt.
