Probiotic, Non-Colonizing Yeast Supplement
Usage of Thorne Research Sacro-B (250 mg Sacco boulardii):
Saccharomyces boulardii is a natural, beneficial yeast species. Sacro B contains at least 5 billion beneficial yeast organisms per capsule. Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-pathogenic yeast that is recognized to have probiotic effectiveness used alone and/or in combination with other probiotics to support digestion.
Saccharomyces boulardii is considered a non-pathogenic, non-colonizing baker's yeast species, which is very closely related to brewer's yeast also known as S. cervesiae. The Saccharomyces boulardii, although it is recognized as a yeast, is not related to the Candida species (Candida albicans, tropicalas, etc.), which can cause pathogenic infections in the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a unique probiotic in that it is known to survive gastric acidity, it is not adversely affected or inhibited by antibiotics and does not alter or adversely affect the normal flora in the bowel. For this reason, good friendly probiotic organisms (including Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium) can be taken at the same time as Saccharomyces boulardii.
Two (2) capsules twice a day. For best results, it is recommended that the capsule be taken between meals, on an empty stomach, with un-chilled water. Keep the bottle in a cool dry area (may be refrigerated).
Precautions / Interactions for Thorne Research Sacro-B (250 mg Sacco boulardii):
WARNING: If pregnant, consult your health care practitioner before using this, or any other product. Avoid if allergic to yeast.
Saccharomyces boulardii should only be taken under the guidance and direction of a health care practitioner. This supplement is generally well tolerated; however, if any of the following symptoms occur, then stop and contact your physician: hives, rash, or itchy swollen skin, breathing problems or tightness in throat or chest. These symptoms are typical of allergic reaction which may require medical attention or require that the product be discontinued. Other possible side effects may include gastrointestinal symptoms such as flatulence (gas) and constipation.
Do not take the Saccharomyces boulardii supplementation at the same time as any prescription antifungals (Nystatin, Diflucan, Sporonox, etc). Prescription antifungals are recognized to kill Saccharomyces boulardii and thus should be taken at a different time of the day (separated by 2 to 3 hours) as is recommended your physician.
