What is Saccharomyces Boulardii?
Saccharomyces Bourlardii is a probiotic yeast that was first isolated from lychee and mangosteen fruit in the early 1920s. The natural purpose of s.boulardii may have been to product these fruits from disease and decay from other invading pathogens and bacteria. A scientist by the name of Henri Boulard was the first to isolated saccharomyces boulardii so it later became named after him. After many years of studies and clinical evidence of s.boulardii, the probiotic has become what it known today as a well researched, highly effective, minimal side effect medication used to restore natural flora. Saccharomyces Boulardii is lyophilized in a laboratory which means it`s freezed dried. This allows the product to remain at room temperature and still be viable for the proper dosage when ingested. After freeze drying, S.boulardii is then referred to as saccharomyces boulardii lyo.
There are a few generic brands of s.boulardii on the market today. However, it is important to note that there really is no such thing as true generics when it comes to probiotics. Unlike drugs, which are heavily regulated where generics must legally be equivalent to their brand name counter parts, dietary supplements do not have a regulatory body ensuring equivalency. This means the only way you can know for sure you are getting the original s.boulardii is by purchasing saccharomyces boulardii lyo manufactured from Biocodex and named Florastor. It is also important to note that all clinical studies and evidence performed was using the specific s.boulardii from Biocodex. Other brand names are not required to perform the same clinical studies using their own s.bouarldii probiotic strain to show evidence that their version works the same way.
