S. Boulardii ( Saccharomyces Boulardii )


What is S. Boulardii ( Saccharomyces Boulardii )

S. Boulardii ( Saccharomyces Boulardii ) is a tropical strain of yeast first isolated from lychee and mangosteen fruit in 1923 by French scientist Henri Boulard. It is related to, but distinct from, Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Brewers Yeast)

S. Boulardii ( Saccharomyces Boulardii )  has been shown to maintain and restore the natural flora in the large and small intestine; it is classified as a probiotic. Boulard first isolated the yeast after he observed natives of Southeast Asia chewing on the skin of lychee and mangosteen in an attempt to control the symptoms of cholera. S. Boullardii ( S. Boulardii ( Saccharomyces Boulardii ) ) has been shown to be non-pathogenic, non-systemic (remains in the gastrointestinal tract), and grows at the unusually high temperature of 37°C.

S. Boulardii ( Saccharomyces Boulardii ), is a non-colonizing yeast species closely related to Brewer's yeast and not related to the yeast group to which Candida belongs. S. Boulardii ( 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 S. Boulardii ( 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.
