PRAANAMRIT® Saccharomyces boulardii contains S.boulardii which is a non-pathogenic probiotic yeast that has broad, versatile gastrointestinal effects. For over 50 years, S. boulardii has been utilized to support normal gastrointestinal function during episodes of dietary and environmental stress. Antibiotics, medications, disease, improper nutrition, and toxins can upset the delicate balance of microflora in the gastrointestinal tract and set the stage for digestive disorders, impaired immune function, increased allergic sensitivity, infection, and inflammation. S. boulardii is a temperature tolerant microorganism that is unaffected by gastric acid and bile. This unique probiotic does not normally inhabit the intestines and thus does not colonize the intestinal tract. Rather S. boulardii exerts its beneficial effects as it moves through the gastrointestinal tract. Supplementation with PRAANAMRIT® Saccharomyces boulardii can help support the maintenance and restoration of normal gastrointestinal function in numerous ways. This is a lactose-free, stomach acid–resistant, stable, European patent-pending formula containing DNA-verified Saccharomyces boulardii. This probiotic yeast supports other probiotic organisms in addition to intestinal barrier function and integrity. Research also suggests that Saccharomyces boulardii supports normal immune responses.*
