What is Saccharomyces boulardii good for?
Saccharomyces boulardii, the active ingredient in Viridian Travel Biotic, can be used to treat and prevent travellers diarrhoea and diarrhoea caused by the gastrointestinal take-over of 'bad' bacteria. Saccharomyces boulardii also encourages a healthy Immune System and aids Digestion by assisting the digestive enzymes to absorb nutrients.
What is Saccharomyces boulardii?
The non-pathogenic yeast Saccharomyces boulardii was first discovered in the skin of Lychee and mangosteen fruit by French microbiologist, Henri Boulard in the early 1920's. Modern research now suggests that Saccharomyces boulardii is a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae but differs from the other strains in the family, such as Baker's Yeast & Brewer's Yeast and baker's yeast.
How ever you wish to identify Saccharomyces boulardii, there is no doubt that this active ingredient is one of the great success stories in probiotic therapy, which is now considered to be an ideal supplement to take alongside antibiotics or when travelling overseas.
What do bacteria do in a healthy gut microbiome?
The human gut is home to some 400 species of bacteria in the gut including Bacteroides, Lactobacillus, Clostridium, Fusobacterium, Bifobacterium, Eubacterium and Peptostreptococcus. Some 100 trillion bacteria populate the human gut, a number that is 10 times greater than the number of cells in the human Body.
The aforementioned 'good' bacteria in the microbiome protects against other (bad) bacteria that cause disease. They also help to regulate the immune system, help digest Food, and produce vital B Vitamins that are required for blood coagulation. Because of the sheer size and importance of the gut bacteria, this microbial population can be viewed as a bacterial organ, about the size of your liver and just as important.
