Saccharomyces Boulardii Yeast
Saccharomyces boulardii is a unique and non-pathogenic tropical yeast (fungus). This is a hardy, acid-resistant and temperature-tolerant micro-organism. It differs greatly from other better-known species, such as Bifidobacterium and acidophilus bacteria strains for example. It is in the same genus as Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s, brewer’s or dietary yeast), Saccharomyces boulardii, however it is not linked to the Candida species (Candida albicans, tropicalas, etc.) Saccharomyces boulardii yeast was first isolated from lychee and mangosteen fruit in the 1920s by a French scientist called Henri Boulard.
Unlike most other probiotics which are bacteria based, Saccharomyces boulardii is a yeast, yet it is still classified as a probiotic supplement because its beneficial organisms are able to survive stomach acid and colonise the intestinal tract. There, they support the growth of friendly bacteria and a healthy balance of gut microflora, digestive health and a strong immune system. Ideal for travel!
Saccharomyces Boulardii is thought to act in 3 key ways:
- Inhibiting certain bacterial toxins and their effects
- Helps support the body's immune response, helping to improve the resistance to bacteria
- Supports the health and integrity of intestinal mucosa.
- Hardy, acid-resistant, temperature-tolerant micro-organism.
