Suggested Use: One capsule twice daily with meals or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. S. boulardii is generally used for short-term gastrointestinal support. Daily doses ranging from 250 to 1,000 milligrams providing 2.5 billion to 10 billion CFUs taken once to four times per day have been reported in the medical literature. A common supplement regimen lasts 3 to 4 weeks or for up to two weeks after diarrhea has resolved. S. boulardii should be taken at least 1 hour before and 2 hours after any antifungal agent. S. boulardii can be taken along with anti-bacterial antibiotics.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-pathogenic, transient yeast long-used for diarrhea or dysentery. It is a hardy, acid-resistant, temperature tolerant microorganism that is not affected by anti-bacterial agents. S. boulardii increases the activities of intestinal brush border enzymes such as disaccharidases, alpha-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 immunoglobulin receptors. It inhibits inflammatory cytokine pathways and secretes a factor that blocks C. difficile toxin A activities. Klaire Labs S. boulardii is American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) certified, lactose-free, and freeze-dried to maintain maximum potency and viability.†
