Containing 5 billion colony-forming units per capsule, Sisu S. boulardii is a non-bacterial, high-potency probiotic used in the prevention and treatment of traveller’s diarrhea and diarrhea associated with C. difficile infection. Equally safe and effective for children and adults, S. boulardii is stable at room temperature and is recommended for all trips abroad.
For optimal health, we need a healthy balance of bacteria in our gastrointestinal (GI) system. The balance of bacterial flora in the GI system is easily upset by contaminated food, stress, illness, travelling or a course of antibiotic treatment. This can quickly lead to stomach upset including diarrhea, and begin a cycle of poor digestion and reduced immune function. A probiotic supplement delivers a consistent, guaranteed amount of active cells and is a simple and effective way to help prevent GI problems, repair damage, and restore and maintain healthy gut flora.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a type of probiotic that is a therapeutic yeast, and is specifically studied for prevention and treatment of diarrhea, including C. difficile infection. S. boulardii works by rapidly multiplying and blocking the implantation and growth of disease causing bacteria such as those that bring about traveller’s diarrhea and antibiotic-induced diarrhea. S. boulardii is not a bacterium, therefore it will not be affected by antibiotics.
