Antibiotics, travel illness, stress, alcohol, and poor eating habits, especially sugar can lead to dysbiosis, a condition of having an overgrowth of bad gut bacteria, e.g. Clostridium, Candida, E. coli. Dysbiosis, also called dysbacteriosis, is associated with many diseases such as digestive illness and chronic fatigue.
Discovered in the skin of lychee fruit, Saccharomyces boulardii, a tropical strain of yeast, was first isolated from lychee and mangosteen fruit in 1923 by French scientist Henri Boulard.
Saccharomyces boulardii is clinically studied and is mainly used for:
- Preventing antibiotic side effects
- Diarrhoea and loose stools
- Bacterial overgrowth
- Bad bacteria
Saccharomyces boulardii provides a natural and traditional treatment.
USES Immune stimulant, Colds, Flu, Infections.
The Echinacea herb is one of the most popular herbs used in Europe. It is considered to be the prime remedy for the Immune system and this view has been supported by extensive research.
HOW IT WORKS Echinacea works principally by stimulating a group of cells in the Immune system known as the macrophages. These cells have the unique ability to ‘eat’ matter foreign to the body, such as viruses, bacteria and other particles entering the body.
Stimulating the Immune system in this way improves the way the body handles infections, when viruses and bacteria do damage to invade the body. Clinical trials have shown that Echinacea can improve the symptoms of cold and flu, shortening the course of the illness in over 80% of people.
