Saccharomyces boulardii is an acid-resistant microorganism that is not affected by antibiotics or higher temperatures. It is known to support a healthy gut barrier, intestinal microbiota and immune system.
Seeking Health Saccharomyces Boulardii contains 5 billion CFU (Colony Forming Units) to support bowel regularity and a healthy digestive system. It provides relief from occasional diarrhea, particularly during times of increased stress.
Saccharomyces boulardii is known as a ‘probiotic yeast’ and can play a role in supporting healthy intestinal absorption of D-glucose and sodium. This helps to rehydrate the body with healthy uptake of water and electrolytes during occasional diarrhea. It can also increase stool concentrations of short-chain fatty acids that help nourish the mucosal cells of the colon.
Saccharomyces boulardii can assist with maintaining normal colonic populations of beneficial Bifidobacteria probiotics and support the body’s defenses against potential pathogens.
This probiotic is ideal for traveling as Saccharomyces boulardii is resistant to temperature and pH changes. The contents of the capsules can be combined with food or beverages for those who have trouble swallowing pills.
