S. boulardii is sometimes used as a probiotic with the purpose of introducing beneficial active cultures into the large and small intestine, as well as conferring protection against pathogenic microorganisms in the host.
Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii) is a viable yeast, and therefore does not contain any milk products. S. boulardii is a true “biotic” or living organism which has been shown to have multiple beneficial affects via improvement of intestinal microbalance when orally administered. S. boulardii is not part of the naturally occurring gut flora, and is not significantly impacted by antibiotics. In fact, S. boulardii has been shown to be supportive of antibiotic therapy.
