Within a few hours after oral intake this probiotic is able to colonise the gastrointestinal tract and to inhibit the growth of unfavourable microorganisms or to eliminate them. That´s why S. boulardii can be of importance for a healthy intestinal flora. The probiotic yeast has the ability to reliably counteract liquid stool without impairing the natural action of the bowels.
Additionally, the receptors of the harmful bacteria stick well to the cell surface of S. boulardii, so the microorganisms are not able to remain in the digestive tract. Along with the yeast they will be excreted with the stool. (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10424093)
Although the human digestive tract provides ideal conditions, such as body temperature, for the probiotic Saccharomyces boulardii and allows it to grow well, it´s only a temporary component of the intestinal flora. As long as S. boulardii is ingested with the food, it can be detected in the bowel. Once the consumption stops, the yeast will be excreted quickly.
Unlike other probiotics, Saccharomyces boulardii can be used in combination with antibiotics.

- S. boulardii has soothing effects and supports the regeneration of the intestines – counteracts excessive loss of fluids
- Can activate the immune system – stabilises the intestinal flora und its natural protective function- after antibiotic therapy or when travelling to tropical countries
- Numerous scientists examined the probiotic effects of S. boulardii. It was possible to show that the yeast forms a protease which segregates certain toxins of bacteria. This way toxic substances of the dreaded hospital pathogen Clostridium difficile can be rendered harmless. (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9864230)
