Being healthy takes guts. The gastrointestinal makeup of our bodies is a major factor in our overall health. So, how much do you know about what goes on in your gut?


Increasing evidence shows that the gastrointestinal microflora is a major regulator of the immune system, not only in the gut, but also in other organs. The metabolic activity of this flora is monitored by probiotics. Most of us refer to probiotics as the “friendly bacteria”.


But there’s one special probiotic you should know more about - Saccharomyces Boulardii.


What is Saccharomyces Boulardii?


Although it is considered a "probiotic," it is also a friendly yeast. Saccharomyces boulardii has been prescribed over the past 30 years for prophylaxis and treatment of diarrheal diseases caused by bacteria.


But more importantly, S. boulardii has demonstrated clinical and experimental effectiveness in gastrointestinal diseases with a predominant inflammatory component, indicating that this probiotic might interfere with cellular signaling pathways common in many inflammatory conditions.

Why is Saccharomyces Boulardii So Good For You?


S. boulardii, unlike other probiotics that colonize in the gut, does not normally inhabit the intestines. It is a transient yeast that passes through the intestines after ingestion. S. boulardii does not attach to the lining of the intestine lumen, but exerts its beneficial effects on your gut as it moves through your gastrointestinal tract.


It inactivates bacterial toxins, inhibits toxin binding to intestinal receptors and lessens toxin-induced inflammation. It reduces the ability of potentially harmful microorganisms to adhere to and invade intestinal cells. S. boulardii stimulates host immune defenses and intestinal enzymes that enhance nutrient digestion and absorption.It produces acids that combat potentially harmful microorganisms, assist in mineral absorption and nourish the colon.


How do You Get Saccharomyces Boulardii?


Because it doesn’t colonize, we need to replenish daily if we are treating a GI imbalance, yeast infection or as a post antibiotic treatment.


We suggest taking Saccharomyces Boulardii, by Orthomolecular. Also, Ortho Biotic probiotic formula has a healthy does of S. boulardii in it, and comes in powder or pill form.
