Non-pathogenic, transient yeast used for diarrhea or dysentery is the Saccharomyces boulardii. Saccharomyces boulardii , which is characterized by its hard form and acid-resistance nature, is a temperature tolerant microorganism that is not affected by anti-bacterial agents. It is quite different from brewer’s yeast (S. cerevisiae) and different from pathogenic Candida species both genetically and functionally.
S. boulardii increases the activities of intestinal brush border enzymes such as disaccharidases, a-glucosidases, alkaline phosphatases, and aminopeptidases. It secretes a leucine aminopeptidase that appears to support against allergies to dietary proteins following acute gastroenteritis. S. boulardii augments the intestinal absorption of D-glucose coupled with sodium that may enhance uptake of water and electrolytes during diarrhea.
It increases stool concentrations of short-chain fatty acids that nourish colon mucosal cells. It modulates immunity by boosting intestinal secretion of IgA and increasing crypt cell immuno-globulin receptors. It inhibits inflammatory cytokine pathways and secretes a factor that blocks C. difficile toxin A activities.
BoulardiiMAX is a probiotic supplement of Saccharomyces boulardii, a non-colonizing yeast species. It is a non-pathogenic yeast strain that is not related to the yeast group to which Candida belongs. Saccharomyces boulardii has been isolated from the skins of tropical fruits found in Indochina. The indigenous population of Indochina has long used these fruit skins to prevent and treat diarrhea.
Through various research and studies, it has also been indicated that Saccharomyces boulardii can be effective in preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhea, diarrhea caused by Clostridium difficile, as well as diarrhea caused by other types of bacteria. New research is also showing Saccharomyces boulardii as an effective addition to H. Pylori treatment.
