Saccharomyces boulardii, unlike other probiotics, is a non-pathogenic, transient yeast. It is used to promote healthy bowel function. S. boulardii has a range of actions: it boosts intestinal secretions, increases crypt cell immunoglobulin receptors and increases stool concentrations of fatty acids that nourish colon mucosal cells. It increases activities of intestinal brush border enzymes.
Functionally distinct from brewer’s yeast and pathogenic Candida species, S. boulardii is a hardy, acid-resistant, temperature tolerant microorganism that is not affected by antibacterial agents. Research has found that S. boulardii supports healthy intestinal function in an array of clinical settings, supporting healthy bowel transit time.
