Saccharomyces Boulardii is a non-pathogenic yeast widely used as a probiotic agent in many countries including the United States. S. boulardii has been well studied for its use in a wide range of gastrointestinal related disorders.
S.boulardii has been well studied for its use in the prevention of gastrointestinal disturbances often associated with the use of antibiotics.
Antibiotic therapy is widely prescribed in the United States. Antibiotics eradicate beneficial bacteria which populate the intestines and colon, making room for more harmful bacteria to flourish. Without these beneficial bacteria, the ecosystem of the gut becomes disrupted, resulting in what as known as antibiotic associated diarrhea (AAD). In studies S. boulardii has been shown to reduce the risk of developing AAD and reduce the number of days with AAD.
Many American’s enjoy vacationing outside of the country each year. Occasionally, gastrointestinal disturbances may occur during travel and put a damper on the vacation. S. boulardii has been used successfully in trials assessing its effectiveness on diarrhea during travel.
Saccharomyces boulardii has also been used alongside traditional drug therapies in a number of specific gastrointestinal related disorders with much success.
