Saccharomyces boulardii is a type of yeast sourced from the skin of such plants as lychee and mangosteen. It supports the protection of the intestinal lining from harmful bacteria and promotes a healthy immune system and the continued function of the gastrointestinal barrier, as well as aids digestive enzymes for nutrient absorption and digestion.
Saccharomyces boulardii is considered to be a friendly strain of bacteria, a class of beneficial bacteria that stimulates the immune system and protects digestive health.
Saccharomyces boulardii is most commonly used for treating and preventing diarrhea, including infectious types such as rotaviral diarrhea in children. It has some evidence of use for other types of diarrhea, acne, and a digestive tract infection that can lead to ulcers.
When initially discovered, S. boulardii was found to be in the fruits mangosteen and lychee. Outside of these foods, S. boulardii is hard to find in natural substances and is therefore most commonly consumed through food supplements.
It’ is recommended to actively include other friendly strains of bacteria in your diet alongside S. boulardii. You can get friendly strains of bacteria from kefir, sauerkraut and yogurt.

O serie de factori pot compromite echilibrul optim al bacteriilor benefice, inclusiv tratamentul cu antibiotice, infecția, stresul, călătoria sau o perioadă de alimentare sau stil de viață nesănătos. O soluție eficientă este suplimentarea microflorei prin administrarea unui supliment de bacterii vii cu mai multe tulpini pentru a restabili echilibrul.
O viață mai sănătoasă și mai fericită începe cu microbiomul tău unic.
