Saccharomyces Boulardii Benefits Based on Research
Did you know?
Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic, a non-colonizing yeast species closely related to Brewer’s yeast (Saccharomyces cervisiae) and not related to the yeast group belonging to Candida.
It aggressively displaces problematic yeast species in the GI tract and has been used to prevent post-antibiotic diarrhea. Saccharomyces boulardii taken orally produces some B vitamins as it becomes established, and crowds out the unfriendly strains of yeast. It is eliminated after supplementation is discontinued. During use, it helps friendly probiotic bacteria to colonize in the GI tract, supporting micro-ecology. This product is hypoallergenic.
