In the natural health world, the term "yeast" is typically associated in a positive way with "brewer's/nutritional" yeast, or in a negative way with Candida albicans (i.e., as in yeast infections). One association that is not commonly made is "probiotic." Nevertheless, that's exactly what Saccharomyces boulardii is, a beneficial yeast used as a probiotic agent to support gastrointestinal health.* Its most important use is when intestinal flora come under assault, such as during antibiotic use or when traveling.*

Gluten Free
Vegan

Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii) typically reaches a maximum steady state in 3 days when taken orally, but does not multiply in the gut. Less than one percent of the ingested quantity is recovered from stools, indicating that supplementation with S. boulardii should take place regularly to achieve continuing benefits.*

Occasional Diarrhea

S. boulardii is particularly effective in relation to occasional diarrhea from various causes.* The efficacy of taking S. boulardii orally has been demonstrated in helping to decrease the chances or intensity of traveler's diarrhea, antibiotic-associated diarrhea and some food spoilage related diarrhea.*

In fact, meta-analyses of the pooled results from studies suggest that S. boulardii can decrease the relative risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhea by 57 percent to 63 percent. S. boulardii produces proteases that may help to reduce the negative effects of C. difficile produced toxins A and B.* S. boulardii can also interact with undesirable intestinal microorganisms and reduce their adherence to the intestinal wall.* S. boulardii may also reduce sodium secretion and thereby guard against water-loss from intestinal cells during occasional diarrhea.*

Hypersensitive Bowel

Individuals with a hypersensitive bowel may experience more inflammatory episodes and frequent bowel movements. Taking S. boulardii regularly may help guard against such intrusions in daily life.* Other evidence shows that taking 250 mg S. boulardii three times daily can help maintain better lower intestinal health.*

Skin Health

Although secondary to its effects on gastrointestinal health, S.boulardii may benefit skin health.* In a randomized, double-blind study involving 139 human subjects with noncystic acne, the effectiveness and tolerance of S. boulardii was studied in comparison with a placebo over a maximum period of five months. The results of S. boulardii oral intake were assessed as very good/good in 74.3 percent of the patients receiving the preparation, as compared with 21.7 percent in the placebo group. More than 80 percent of the people in the S. boulardii group were judged to be considerably or completely improved, while the corresponding figure for the placebo group was only 26 percent.*

Mannanoligosaccharides

Mannans are polysaccharides consisting of long-chains of the sugar mannose. They are found abundantly on the surface of human intestinal cells and play a critical role in signaling immune cells. Microorganisms typically use these mannans as footholds in the intestines, so it makes sense that the body has evolved mechanisms to start mobilizing a response at the "point of contact." What's interesting is that mannans are also expressed on the cell walls of S. boulardii. And it's believed that these mannans that coat S. boulardii act as anchor site decoys to unfriendly bacteria, providing one mechanism of action by which S. boulardii helps to protect the digestive tract.*

Mannanoligosaccharides (MOS) are shorter versions of mannans that are similarly non-digestible, chains of mannose units. Structurally, they look like the mannans expressed on cells that line the digestive tract. So it is perhaps not surprising that they also act like mannans in some respects. In fact, microorganisms floating through the digestive tract can bind the ingested, free-flowing MOS "hoping" to get a foothold in the intestines. Instead they are "tricked" into a ride through the digestive system and eventually are flushed from the body. And although this often occurs with bacteria, other microorganisms such as Candida species of yeast are also known to be susceptible to this protective mechanism of MOS.*

Saccharomyces boulardii + MOS provides a synergistic effect in promoting intestinal defense by combining the multi-modal probiotic organism S. boulardii with the added benefits of free-flowing MOS.* S. boulardii promotes the health of the intestinal tract, helps support beneficial microbiota in the intestinal ecosystem, and enhances immune function alone, while MOS assists by helping guard against the adhesion of microorganisms to epithelial cells in the intestines.* Saccharomyces boulardii + MOS is not affected by antibiotics, and does not require refrigeration, i.e., it can be stored at room temperature. Refrigeration will, however, extend the shelf life. Avoid temperatures above 77 F (25 C).

I read that saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic that can help prevent recurrent C. Diff. infections.

This product helped me recover from an extreme case of C. difficile. While I was in the hospital over a year ago, my doctor recommended that I take it (along with the antibiotics I was on) indefinitely, and I have continued to take it. In fact, I have two bottles in my refrigerator at this very moment, because I do not want to be without any. My digestive system is more sensitive now, and this product has kept me from having to take another round of antibiotics. I highly recommend these probiotics to my family and friends whenever I hear them say that they are taking antibiotics or have gastrointestinal issues. Just look up "probiotics" to read about all of the good things they do. It is incredible!

My Dr reccomended a popular over-the-counter name brand probotic for my continuing gas problem. However I found that $17.00 for a packsge of 36 was a bit pricy for a probotic. Jarrows Product contains the same ingredient Saccraomyces Boulardii Plus Mos, similar in strength but containing 90 capsule for only $11.95.
More importently, my severe gas problem was gone within 24 hours after taking just 3 capsules. I've used Jarrow products in the past with great satisfaction.

Size Name: 90 Verified Purchase
After much research, I learned that the stomach problems I have experienced for MUCH too long were most likely due to a case of Clostridium Difficile. The condition is caused by an extreme overgrowth of Clostridium bacteria in the lower intestine. This overgrowth is generally brought on by a lack of other naturally-occurring, beneficial bacteria in the intestines, which are necessary for normal bowel function. This lack can be caused by anything from a pre-existing illness to a microbial exposure to high stress, but it is usually the result of having taken antibiotics. Simply put, antibiotics kill bacteria no matter if that bacteria is "bad" or "good". There certainly are times in our lives when we may need to take antibiotics for one reason or another, so afterward, the intestines must be replenished with their normal level of beneficial bacteria. Oftentimes the intestines do this job on their own. Sometimes they don't, and Clostridium bacteria can over-produce. That is how the problem begins.

As Clostridium Difficile flourishes, it produces toxins that are released through the digestive tract. The result is progressively worsening irregularity with any combination of abdominal cramping, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, nausea and/or vomiting. The hallmark sign of Clostridium Difficile is particularly foul-smelling gas flatulence, which reeks with the odor of sulphur, rotten eggs and ammonia. This gas is constant, virtually uncontrollable and actually feels HOT when it is expelled. It can oftentimes cause irritation by itself and is extremely embarrassing, because it is so frequent, impossible to stop, nasty-smelling and sometimes accompanied by "leakage".

Saccharomyces boulardii is a healing, beneficial yeast probiotic that actually counters the harmful yeast overgrowth of candidia. Jarrow products are first rate and this one is excellent. It is surprising to me that this particular probiotic's health benefits are not more widely known.

After 2.5 years of abdominal discomfort, major exploratory surgery, and numerous pills/treatments, this is the only product that has brought me relief. If you can't get answers and have chronic abdominal discomfort, please try this.

The other reviewers have already told you how amazing this product is. I will just add a few more imoprtant details. The recommended daily administration is one tablet a day, taken with room temperature water about 20-60 minutes after a meal. I initially took 2 tablets after my afternoon meal, as that was the heaviest meal of my day. I took two tablets because I'm overweight and often need a larger dose of some meds. I took 2 tablets for the first 2 weeks and then cut back to the one tablet a day. I found a decrease in my acid reflux, in stomache irritations, and in yeast problems. I also found a surprising increase in energy and over-all well being. It's such a small amount of money for such large rewards.

I was at my wit's end on what to do for my mother when she kept having Clostridium Difficile (C. Diff.) infections. As a hospital dietitian, I know how serious C. Diff. can be. I read that saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic that can help prevent recurrent C. Diff. infections. I immediately looked on Amazon.com for this probiotic & found the Jarrow brand & ordered it as fast as I could. I am happy to report that she has not had a single C. Diff. infection since she started taking Saccharomyces Boulardii. I did read that Saccharomyces Boulardii is contraindicated for people with a weakened immune system & people taking meds that can alter the immune system because it might increase the risk of developing Fungemia (a yeast infection that spreads to the bloodstream). Cancer patients should use caution in regards to this probiotic, especially if they are neutropenic (very low white blood cell count).

I've had C. Diff before. I was prescribed an antibiotic for an infection again and the doc was not concerned about my getting C. Diff again. I got C. Diff again. :( Well, now I know. :(
I went and got tested for C. Diff, but started taking the Jarrow Saccharromyces Boulardii +MOS (I had it on hand from the last time I had C. Diff) right after "donating" the sample and while I waited for results (about 24 hours). The result was that I had C. Diff like I thought, so the doc called in the script for Flagyl, but I was unable to pick it up until the next day. By then, my stomach felt better and everything was on the up swing. I called the doc and asked what he thought and he said that if things were getting better, I could wait to take the Flagyl and see if the probiotics took care of the C. Diff. In 5 days I was pretty much all better. This is really good since I have epilepsy and the metronidazole (Flagyl) has the potential to cause me to have a breakthrough seizure. I'm very pleased with the product and will continue to purchase it for use as a daily suppliment. My doc is a regular MD allopath, btw, not a naturopath or a DO. Anyway, I'm super happy with the product and also happy I didn't have to pay a TON for the other product at the local drugstore and that I avoided another round of a potentially dangerous antibiotic.
