Long term antibiotic use kills most of the prebiotic bacteria in the gut and because it is a yeast, Saccharomyces Boulardii can keep candida albicans from overwhelming the gut that can cause an infection.
  • Saccharomyces Boulardii may help in managing the digestive discomforts associated with traveller’s diarrhea.

This fungi is a very special, it does not penetrate the tissues (unlike candida albicans) and doesn’t form spores, so the risk of relocating to other body parts are lower. Saccharomyces Boulardii’s growth temperature is at 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, similar to the body’s average temperature, making it able to thrive in the body longer. When taken orally, this probiotic supplement will be able to survive the acidity in the stomach and make its way to the intestines. When in gut, Saccharomyces Boulardii prevents overgrowth of the harmful bacteria and fungi.
