Almost all antifungal treatments come as topical creams or ointments that you will need to apply on the surface of the skin and nails. The Aztec Natural Antifungal Foot Soak on the other hand, is not applied on the skin. Rather, the whole foot is immersed in the solution. For this reason, it claims to be better than almost all other antifungal treatments as it can get rid of the most stubborn infections that others cannot solve. It claims to do this by absorbing the fungus, raising the pH of the environment aside from having other antifungal effects.
First of all, its use as a foot soak means that it can reach almost all parts of the skin – even under the nails. This makes it a good product especially for fungal infections that are hard to reach. It makes use of Zea mays, ginger and an organic ingredient that can raise the pH of water. Zea mays or corn is not a well known substance that can fight against fungal infections but it is included in the formulation of Aztec and it may have some effects against fungi. Ginger on the other hand, is a much more well known and potent antifungal. Immersing the fungi in ginger extract can reduce and prevent the growth of fungi. Lastly, increasing the pH of the environment of fungi can also inhibit their growth. This is because fungi thrive on an acidic environment. Converting their environment to an alkaline one will cause them to become weaker, thus they can be better eliminated by the body.
With the ingredients of Aztec, you are sure that it has great antifungal effects especially with ginger and its ability to increase the skin’s pH. Aside from this, as a foot soak, it can also effectively reach other areas of the skin where normal topical antifungals cannot reach. One problem with Aztec is that being a foot soak, it is also much harder to prepare and use every day, unlike topical treatments which will only take a few minutes. With regards to comparing its price to other toenail fungus treatments, it also costs a lot more than the usual antifungal ointment. Overall, the Aztec Natural Antifungal Foot Soak is a good treatment to use for stubborn and hard to reach fungi. However, for infections that are only superficial and mild, the regular antifungal ointment may be a better option.
