A powerful, unique yeast probiotic.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a yeast, which is a type of fungus. Saccharomyces boulardii was previously identified as a unique species of yeast, but is now believed to be a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast). Saccharomyces boulardii is used as medicine.
Saccharomyces boulardii is used for treating and preventing diarrhea, including infectious types such as rotaviral diarrhea in children, diarrhea caused by gastrointestinal (GI) take-over (overgrowth) by “bad” bacteria in adults, traveler’s diarrhea, and diarrhea associated with tube feedings. It is also used to prevent and treat diarrhea caused by the use of antibiotics.
Saccharomyces boulardii is also used for general digestion problems, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBD, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis), Lyme disease, a bowel disorder called relapsing Clostridium difficilecolitis, and bacterial overgrowth in short bowel syndrome.
Some people use Saccharomyces boulardii for lactose intolerance, urinary tract infections (UTIs), vaginal yeast infections, high cholesterol levels, hives, fever blisters, canker sores, and teen-age acne.
This product was made in a GMP and ISO 9001:2008 registered facility.
How does it work?
Saccharomyces boulardii is called a “probiotic,” a friendly organism that helps to fight off disease-causing organisms in the gut such as bacteria and yeast.
An appealing aspect of our nutrients is the convenience offered by the unique packaging:
- Packets contain a formula of supplements—amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals required to re-balance the deficiency.
- You don’t have to keep track of how many tablets/capsules you are taking or how many milligrams you are getting with each nutrient.
- Take one packet, twice a day. Simple as that.
- The packaging also allows you to carry the packets with you in your pocket or purse, making them convenient to take wherever you are.
