Saccharomyces Boulardii (3 billion) x 50 Capsules
- Vegetarian product
A probiotic, non-colonizing yeast species closely related to Brewer's yeast and not related to the yeast group to which Candida belongs. Saccharomyces boulardii taken orally produces lactic acid and some B vitamins as it becomes established. During use, friendly probiotic bacteria are allowed to colonize in the GI tract making Saccharomyces boulardii particularly beneficial in balancing intestinal microbiology. It is then eliminated after supplementation is stopped. It also has been shown to support production of secretory IgA.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-pathogenic yeast strain, which has been used for treatment and prevention of diarrhoea resulting from multiple etiologies. Saccharomyces boulardii has been isolated from the skins of tropical fruits found in Indochina. Saccharomyces boulardii is classified as a "probiotic," or a microorganism that when ingested may have a positive influence on the host's health. Probiotics may exert their effects on the gastrointestinal system directly, or may modulate the immune system in a larger scope.
Why support the digestive tract with supplements?
Approximately 70% of the body’s immune cells can be found within the digestive tract. The digestive system and the innate immune system needs to deal with all of the food that we consume. Antibiotics, other drugs and stress and some foods and drinks we consume have a negative impact on our mucosal health and require restorative help. S. Boulardii supports a number of functions within the digestive tract including the support and increased production of Secretory Immunoglobulin A, the most abundant immunoglobulin within the human body.
Consume whole, fresh foods, and minimise all forms of refined sugar and carbohydrates. Drink plenty of fresh water. Chew food well, and relax when eating.
