Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic yeast that survives stomach acid and colonizes the intestinal tract. It promotes the health of the intestinal tract, helps to encourage a healthy gut flora balance, and supports a balanced intestinal response to normal internal and environmental stressors. Saccharomyces boulardii has also been shown to support proper gastrointestinal function during temporary disruptions to the normal balance of gut flora.

Gr8-Dophilus alone couldn't take down my activated Ulcerative Colitis. After learning that Boulardii works as a "growing ground" of that good bacteria, I started to use this again. Again? Yes, two years ago Boulardii, glutein-free diet and some other products together saved my colon from being cut out. For some reason my colon got bad again and then there's no room for the good bacteria to grow enough. Boulardii did the trick again.
My husband & I both suffer from IBS; so far the probiotics we've taken have only helped so much, and so we decided to be a bit more adventurous - WCGW? Well, he was bloated for hours after taking this, while I had really painful intestinal cramps the whole day to the point of it affecting my work. Not saying it's a bad product, but certainly didn't work wonders for us.
BEST FOR UPSET GUT ISSUES

This probiotic is excellent for upset stomach. I need to take high dose antibiotics which sometimes cause diarrhea, Saccharomyces Boulardii is the best natural thing to settle it down. I don't go anywhere without it.

Valuble lesson learned!

I have been taking care of my father for over 16 years; he turned 94 this past July and spends way too much time analyzing the deficiency of his body as he ages. I tell him he is obsessed with his "gut" and has forgotten lessons learned earlier in life. All of a sudden, he wants to stock up on laxatives, enemas and fiber supplements. No amount of reasoning from me, his doctor and even internet research could convince him that he simply didn't need these items to maintain his 'regularity'. He pays way too much attention to television commercials and stated asking about probiotics; what they do and why are they so important. I was only too happy to explain and also tell him that I had taken them for years to maintain a healthy gut and not fall victim to colds, flu and other community shared germs. After a lengthy discussion, he agreed to try my 'wonder pill' and was so surprised that he was functioning normally, without stress. As I have stated, he is 94, and his memory isn't the best sometimes. So, he occasionally questions me about why he needs friendly bacteria in his gut. The Saccharomyces Boulardii has been a boon to us both; as his daughter and caregiver, this is one area I am happy not to worry about.
Does help with C. difficile

Did help me fight antibiotics induced C. diffile and watery diarrhea that I had for weeks. Stool became better. I am keeping using it to fight SIBO and fructose malabsorbance, don't know yet.
Great for candida and stomach upset

It's amazing for keeping candida in control in your intimate area. I have no more burning and itching sensation, and discharge got reduced for over 50% and also no nasty smell. Bloating is also not the case anymore. I have been taking it along with digestive enzymes and hcl betaine, so the combo is great for me.
