One of the best probiotics available today is Saccharomyces Boulardii. Intestinal health is one of the major concerns in these times of binge eating disorders and these probiotics are a trusted remedy for the symptoms of compulsive overeating.

Most digestion takes place in our intestine, and that is why it needs to be in proper health, so that all the important nutrients can be efficiently absorbed by our body. This supplement with acidophilus prove to be beneficial in aiding digestion.

Probiotics not only enhance digestibility by introducing healthy flora in our intestines, but they are also effective against a number of problems related to the intestinal tract. Some of these problems are diarrhea, lactose intolerance and even colon cancer. S.B. is one such probiotic microorganism, specifically yeast, which is found to be a natural cure for a number of intestinal disorders.

Usual Saccharomyces Boulardii dosage for diarrhea associated with antibiotics is 200 – 500 mg, take it 3-4 times per day.


Saccharomyces Boulardii Benefits

S. Boulardii probiotic supplement can be used as an effective treatment for acute diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, traveler’s diarrhea, inflammatory bowel disease, recurrent Clostridium difficile infection, HIV/AIDS associated diarrhea and antibiotic-associated diarrhea.

Many believe that the discovery of this supplement Henri Boulard, who happens to be a microbiologist, discovered these beneficial effects accidentally, but it’s not so. This scientist who gave the probiotic his last name went to south-east Asia specifically to discover newer strains of probiotic microorganisms.

He had the chance to witness this cure in action, in a village in South-East Asia (Thailand), when he saw the natives preparing and drinking tea from the skins of lychee and mangosteen fruits, in order to fight cholera symptoms.

Rather than simply be amused by the practice, he made up his mind to get to the root of this unique method of treatment.

He found that, apart from being good sources of potassium and pure vitamin C, these lychee and mangosteen fruits also have S.B. yeasts on most of the parts of their skins. This unique strain of yeast was unknown to the scientific world as well to the natives at that time, and Henri Boulard did not waste a second to isolate it, name it and sell the strain to one of the biggest pharmacist companies.


Major S. Boulardii probiotic uses

As far the usage is concerned, this probiotic is fairly stable at room temperature. At high temperatures, that is in the range to 37 degree Celsius, it grows rapidly. However, this non systemic and non pathogenic probiotic is safe.

This simply means that it will remain in the intestinal tract and abstain from spreading to the other parts of the body.

These supplements normally come in capsule form and before buying you have to make sure that the capsules are lyophilized and not heat dried. The lyophilized capsules are also sometimes referred to as the lyophilized form of S. Boulardii.

The popularity of the lyophilized capsules may be attributed to the fact that these capsules do not need to be refrigerated, and they can remain stable at room temperature for as long as one year.

However, the heat dried capsules are also not a bad option, as long as you have a refrigerator to store them. Another healthy alternative is a probiotic yogurt.

By looking at the sheer number of health benefits that this dietary supplements provide and in a natural way, without causing any Saccharomyces Boulardii side effects; there’s nothing to stop you from including these in your diet plans.
