Thrush is a condition in which Candida Albicans, a yeast-like fungus, grows in the throat and mouth. There are many causes, such as dentures, smoking, medications, pregnancy, or illness. It is more prevalent in infants and newborn babies, but typically not harmful. Typical signs include mouth pain, soreness, and white patches in different body parts, such as tongue, palate, throat, inner cheeks, and mouth.

Vitamin C

Ascorbic acid, commonly known as vitamin C, plays a key role in the function of the immune system. It encourages the production of white blood cells, thus helping the body prevent an infection. People with thrush can take vitamin C supplements or eat foods rich in this nutrient to speed up healing. Also, it can protect against harmful molecules and allow for normal cell functions. [1]
