Saccharomyces boulardii is a viable yeast that is genetically different from Bakerís yeast, and does not contain milk products. S. boulardii is a true biotic or living organism which has been shown to have beneficial affects by improving intestinal microbalance when administered in adequate amounts. 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. Oral administration achieves steady state concentrations in the colon within three days, but does not colonize in the intestinal tract. The organism is typically cleared from the intestinal tract within 2 to 5 days after discontinuation.
Usage of Biotics Research Saccharomyces boulardii:
Specifically, S. boulardii has proven particularly beneficial for balancing the intestinal microbiology. It functions in the modulation of both innate immunity by activating the complement system, and adaptive immunity by boosting the intestinal secretion of IgA (sIgA). S. boulardii has been shown to inactivate bacterial toxins, stimulate intestinal immune response, and release polyamines, which are essential for normal cell growth and differentiation (a depletion of which is associated with a dramatic alteration in the arrangement of the cytoskeleton).
Additionally, S. boulardii secretes soluble factors demonstrated to reduce inflammation via a reduction in the production of NF-KappaB and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), and to block the expression of inflammatory cytokines, particularly IL-8 which is secreted during E. coliinfection. It also enhances the secretion of mucosal immune factors which protect against enteric pathogens, improves tight junction structure, and in dendritic immune cells it increases IL-10, which limits unspecific immune response by down regulating Th-1 response.
Each capsule of Saccharomyces boulardii contains 235 mg of S. boulardii, providing a minimum of 4 billion organisms at the time of manufacture.
One (1) capsule one (1) to three (3) times each day as a dietary supplement or as otherwise directed by a healthcare professional.
