Saccharomyces Boulardii by Klaire Labs is a non-pathogenic, transient yeast that has been used for diarrhea or dysentery for a long time. It is a hardy, acid-resistant, temperature tolerant microorganism that is not affected byanti-bacterial agents.
- Support for diarrhea relief
- Supports healthy intestinal function
- Support for antibiotic-associated diarrhea, C. difficile disease, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and travelers diarrhea.
- Lactose-free. Gluten-free.
- ATCC certified and freeze-dried
Klaire Labs Saccharomyces boulardii is American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) certified and freeze-dried to maintain maximum potency and viability. Many manufacturers substitute brewers or bakers yeast and use lactose in production. Klaire uses only lactose-free, gluten-free material. This hypoallergenic formula is available in vegetarian capsules containing 150mg (3+ billion CFUs).
S. boulardii is genetically and functionally distinct from brewers yeast (S. cerevisiae) and different from pathogenic Candida species. S. boulardii increases the activities of intestinal brush border enzymes such as disaccharidases, a-glucosidases, alkaline phosphatases, and aminopeptidases.
It secretes a leucine aminopeptidase that appears to support against allergies to dietary proteins following acute gastroenteritis. S. boulardii augments the intestinal absorption of D-glucose coupled with sodium that may enhance uptake of water and electrolytes during diarrhea. It increases stool concentrations of short-chain fatty acids that nourish colon mucosal cells.
Oral intake of S. boulardii increases colonic populations of healthful bifidobacteria and reduces numbers of pathogenic clostridia. It modulates immunity by boosting intestinal secretion of IgA and increasing crypt cell immuno-globulin receptors. It inhibits inflammatory cytokine pathways and secretes a factor that blocks C. difficile toxin A activities.
Research has found that S. boulardii supports healthy intestinal function in an array of clinical settings including antibiotic-associated diarrhea, C. difficile disease, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and travelers diarrhea.
