What is Saccharomyces boulardii?
Saccharomyces boulardii is a strain of non-pathogenic yeast first discovered in French Indochina by the French scientist Henry Boulard in 1920. It differs a lot compared to other well-known probiotic species such as acidophilus. The main difference is that Saccharomyces boulardii is actually a natural yeast, originally extracted from the lychee fruit.
Saccharomyces boulardii can treat and prevent a number of gastrointestinal (GI) problems, including a few different forms of diarrhoea. This probiotic strain has been shown in multiple clinical trials to benefit human health, including reducing the incidence of antibiotic associated and traveller’s diarrhoea. Antibiotics prescribed for a bacterial infection in a different part of the body can disrupt the "good bacteria" in your gut, flushing them out of your system along with the "bad" ones.
Because Saccharomyces boulardii is a yeast microbe, it cannot be killed by antibiotics and is an ideal supplement to pair with antibiotics. This specific strain has been shown to be effective at combating Candida Albicans, H. Pylori, Clostridium Difficile, and other pathogenic yeast and bacteria strains. The highest-quality Saccharomyces boulardii preparations are lyophilized (freeze-dried) and generally contain 5 billion CFU (colony forming units).
