Saccharomyces boulardii: The Probiotic Yeast

Saccharomyces boulardii is a beneficial yeast used as a probiotic agent to support gastrointestinal health and can be effective in response to several types of diarrhea including acute diarrhea, antibiotic-associated diarrhea, some parasitic forms of diarrhea (co-treatment with antibiotics) and more. Irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis may also benefit from supplementing with saccharomyces boulardii.
