Saccharomyces Boulardii

Product Name: Saccharomyces Boulardii 90 Capsules

Saccharomyces Boulardii is a probiotic yeast that is able to survive stomach acid and colonises the intestinal tract. It can be used to support optimum digestive health and immune function by promoting the growth of friendly bacteria.
Saccharomyces Boulardii probiotic supplement supports a healthy and balanced intestinal tract, helps to encourage a healthy balance of gut flora (bowel bacteria) and supports a balanced inflammatory response.
Saccharomyces boulardii has also been shown to support normal gastrointestinal function during a disruption to gut flora balance, such as when travelling abroad where sanitation, food and water supply may not be ideal.

Pharmacology:

Several clinical trials and experimental studies strongly suggest a place for Saccharomyces boulardii as a biotherapeutic agent for the prevention and treatment of several gastrointestinal diseases. S. boulardiimediates responses resembling the protective effects of the normal healthy gut flora. The multiple mechanisms of action of S. boulardii and its properties may explain its efficacy and beneficial effects in acute and chronic gastrointestinal diseases that have been confirmed by clinical trials. Caution should be taken in patients with risk factors for adverse events.1
In this pilot study, 8 weeks of daily supplementation with S. boulardii lowered remnant lipoprotein, a predictive biomarker and potential therapeutic target in the treatment and prevention of coronary artery disease.2
This review and meta-analysis show that S. boulardii is safe and has clear beneficial effects in children who have acute diarrhea. However, additional studies using head-to-head comparisons are needed to define the best dosage of S. boulardii for diarrhea with different causes.3
