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.
