OptiBac Saccharomyces boulardii

Saccharomyces boulardii is a natural and safe microorganism with vast scientific research and documentation.

This strain has been internationally acclaimed as a well-researched and unique microorganism, and has been safely used for the last 50 years. Saccharomyces boulardii is a natural food supplement, and not a medicine.

Saccharomyces boulardii is a unique microorganism which is sold widely in the US, Scandinavia, Germany & France. This friendly yeast is more robust to environmental stressors than more common bacterial live cultures, and shows strong resistance to heat, humidity and stomach acidity levels. These live cultures of S. boulardii have been tested and shown to be especially stable and resistant.

Live cultures: Saccharomyces boulardii (250mg); vegetarian capsule: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose; titanium dioxide; stabiliser: potato starch; anti-caking agents: vegetable magnesium stearate; silicon dioxide.

Each capsule guarantees 5 billion live cultures.

Suitable for vegans & vegetarians.

Saccharomyces boulardii can be given to adults and children (from 1 year and over) with the following recommendations, or as professionally directed.

  • Take one to four capsules depending on severity of symptoms and up to six capsules daily, or as professionally directed
  • If taking anti-fungals, take separately (at least 2 hours apart).
  • For infants and children the dose should be lowered
  • Drink plenty of water with your course of live cultures.
  • For anyone unable to swallow capsules, capsule can be opened and contents mixed with a cold meal or beverage.

Storage

Like the rest of the OptiBac range, Saccharomyces boulardii does not require refrigeration.

Store out of direct sunlight.

Live cultures are not recommended for those with serious medical conditions eg. those who are severely immunosuppressed, have pancreatitis, are in the ICU, have melaena, have a central venous catheter, infants with short bowel syndrome, or to patients with open wounds following major surgery; unless under a doctor's care. Furthermore, pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking Saccharomyces boulardii, 'For travelling abroad', or natural plant extracts as in 'For daily immunity'.
