Saccharomyces Boulardii Probiotic

Sacchromyces Boulardii Probiotic is a nonpathogenic, transient yeast long used to support normal bowel transit time.†

  • Increases the activities of intestinal brush border enzymes such as disaccharidases, α-glucosidases, alkaline phosphatases, and aminopeptidases.† 
  • Augments the intestinal absorption of D-glucose coupled with sodium that may enhance uptake of water and electrolytes during occasional diarrhea.† 
  • Increases stool concentrations of short-chain fatty acids that nourish colon mucosal cells.† 
  • Modulates immunity by boosting intestinal secretion of IgA and increasing crypt cell immunoglobulin receptors.† 
  • Supports healthy inflammatory response.†

    • Crohn’s disease[48]
    • Inflammatory bowel disease[49]
    • Saccharomyces boulardii helps fight the bad bugs
  • S. boulardii may support correction of dysbiosis (imbalances in your microbiota).[57]
  • S. boulardii has been shown effective in treating digestive tract parasites such as amoebas, giardia, and Blastocystis hominis.[51]  When antibiotics are co-administered with S. boulardii, it increases success compared to antibiotics alone.[52]
  • Even more exciting, S. boulardii has been shown to be as effective as the antibiotic metronidazole (Flagyl) in treating Blastocystis hominis (a potential gut pathogen/infection).[53]

Frequently Asked Questions

Which is better, probiotic supplements or probiotic foods?

Diet can be a great source of probiotics if you are eating a lot of cultured and fermented foods. A challenge with diet is that it is difficult to obtain the same dose used in the research studies. Consider adding probiotic supplementation to your diet for optimal results.  

Are probiotics safe for children?

Researchers have found that probiotics are safe and have health benefits for pregnant moms, infants and kids. 

Should I take probiotics with or without food?

Probiotics can be taken with or without food. Do what’s easiest for you.

Can probiotics improve my mood?

Clinical trials have documented improvements in depression and anxiety after probiotic supplementation.

Can probiotics help me sleep better?

Several studies show that probiotics can help with sleep quality. In one study, medical students found that probiotics helped them sleep during times of exam stress. In other studies, probiotics have helped patients with IBS and depression to sleep better.

Can probiotics help with female hormone function?

Preliminary evidence shows that when bacterial diversity in the gut increases, health conditions associated with female hormone imbalance improve. Probiotics have been shown to improve inflammatory and hormonal markers in women with PCOS.

In my clinic, patients with female hormone conditions have very good results when prescribed probiotics and an herbal blend to balance female hormones.

Can probiotics help with weight loss?

While the research connection between probiotics and weight loss is not strong, evidence suggests a connection between certain types of bacteria overgrowth in SIBO and obesity. 

Can probiotics help with brain fog?

Brain fog isn’t usually studied in isolation but we can make some inferences from other studies where probiotics have improved cognition.  This includes probiotics improving cognitive function for patients with Alzheimer’s, bi-polar disorder and fibromyalgia.

Can probiotics help with allergies?

A systematic review of 15 clinical trials found that probiotics can improve dairy tolerance. Another meta-analysis of 22 randomized control trials concluded that probiotics can improve seasonal allergy.  

There is also data, albeit mixed, suggesting that probiotics given to children may prevent or reduce formation of allergy. 

Can probiotics help with thyroid function?

One study found participants who took a probiotic required less thyroid hormone replacement medication.  

Recent research shows that gut infections like SIBO and H. Pylori are strongly associated with hypothyroidism.  Probiotics can combat both SIBO and H. Pylori.
