Saccharomyces Boulardii is a probiotic non-colonizing yeast
species closely releated to Brewers yeast. It is not related to yeast
group to which Candida belongs. Soon after supplementation, S.
Boullardi "blooms" and quickly becomes established in the
gut, where it can produce lactic acid and some B vitamins.
Extensive studies and clincal use show that S. Boullardi can:
|Displace pathogenic yeast species, such as Candida, in the gut|
|Increase levesl of IgA|
|Support the establishment of friendly bacteria in the intestines|
|Supports nutrient absorption in the small intestinal mucosa|
S. Boullardi and Culturelle are the
two single most effective probiotics my family has used to reduce
yeast infections and to support the immune system.
(As an aside, a refrigerated non-dairy fermented drink containing
S. Boullardi, called Synergy Kombucha Tea has helped resolve yeast
infections and improved overall immunity to colds for all members of
my family as well. It is available from the Whole Foods chain of
health food stores as well as other health food stores. It
comes in several natural fruit flavors but is not very sweet due to
fermentation - it does have a vinegary taste and so may or may not be
palatable to children and teens.)
