How Does Saccharomyces Boulardii Probiotic Benefit Your Health?

How Does Saccharomyces Boulardii Probiotic Benefit Your Health?

Did you know there are different types of yeast that your body can benefit from?

Saccharomyces boulardii or S. boulardii is a kind of yeast that helps the human body in multiple ways.

S. boulardii has a very interesting story behind its discovery. In 1920, the French microbiologist Henry Boulard visited Indochina in search of a yeast strain to use in the fermenting process. In the meantime, he found the native people preparing a kind of liquid or tea with the skin of lychee and mangosteen. At that time, there was an outbreak of Cholera. 

Henry observed that the people who used to drink that liquid were not affected by the pandemic. He researched and succeeded in identifying the agent responsible for it. And that was the strain of saccharomyces boulardii.

Besides treating Cholera effectively, this non-pathogenic yeast has several treatment potentials for the human body. Let's read them.

Why Should You Take Saccharomyces Boulardii Probiotics?

S. boulardii probiotics are purely yeast-based and not bacteria-based. A few benefits of consuming these probiotics are mentioned below.

Help to Maintain Gut Health

Microscopic creatures, like bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc., affect your gut health. Sometimes, medications or high-dose drugs can interrupt the proportion of these microbes in your body. S. boulardii increases the production of short-chain fatty acids, which is good for your gut health.

Sometimes, antibiotics also have a negative impact on your health. Consuming excessive amounts of antibiotics can cause gastrointestinal issues by damaging the gut bacteria. S. boulardii probiotics survive the effectiveness of antibiotics and nurture bacteria and other organisms inside the intestine. Hence, health experts prescribe S. boulardii probiotics to protect and restore your digestive balance in the body.

Help in Digestion

Good bacteria in your body help you in digestion. Saccharomyces boulardii probiotics support good bacteria to fight against the bad ones in your body.

This typical non-pathogenic yeast is effective in protecting the intestinal lining from harmful bacteria. S. boulardii probiotics boost the production of digestive enzymes, which breaks down dietary sugar. This process helps you get more nutrition and hydration from your food by improving the absorption of nutrients and water in the small intestine.

Support Immune System

Did you know that 70-80% of your immune cells are present in your gut? 

So, there is a strong connection between your digestive tract and your immune health. In the earlier point, you have seen how S. boulardii can help maintain a healthy gut in the human body. So, it is obvious that this yeast can help support your immune system.

As per a study , S. bourlardii can increase red blood cells which transport immune complex antigen-antibodies. It also increases white blood cells, which protect your body against invading microorganisms. The study shows that S. bourlardii can also enhance immunity in children with acute gastroenteritis.

Survive in Low PH Area in the Stomach

The human stomach contains a low pH level which is highly acidic. Most bacteria-based probiotics cannot survive in this acidic environment. Saccharomyces boulardii probiotics can combat stomach acid, pancreas juice, and bile and reach the colon unaffected. Thus, these probiotics help balance intestinal bacteria and develop healthy intestinal flora all over the digestive system.

Diseases That Can Be Treated with Saccharomyces Boulardii

When you have a healthy digestive system, it relieves you from developing several health issues. S. boulardii probiotics can treat many diseases in the human body. For example:

  • Consuming toxic food and water can cause Diarrhea. Different forms of Diarrhea can be treated with S. boulardii probiotics. They also help travelers avoid Diarrhea during or after a journey.
  • Crohn’s disease, a kind of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which mainly affects the small and large intestines in the human body. It triggers inflamed tissue in the digestive system. S. boulardii is considered a helpful probiotic to treat Crohn’s disease.
  • Helicobacter pylori bacteria can trigger ulcers in the stomach. Several studies have shown that S. boulardii can help treat damages caused by this bacteria.
  • Helicobacter pylori bacteria can cause Ulceritive Colitis, which causes inflammation and swelling in the colon and rectum. Ulceritive Colitis patients who avoid taking steroid medication can benefit from S. boulardii probiotics.
  • S. boulardii probiotics also help treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), an intestinal disorder.
  • These probiotics can reduce the severity of Clostridium Difficile Disease (CDD) by promoting IgA and IgG antibodies in the human body.

The Conclusion

With its anti-toxin properties, Saccharomyces boulardii can prevent harmful bacteria from producing toxins in your body. It minimizes inflammation and strengthens the immune system. In this way, S. boulardii helps treat a wide range of diseases in the human body.

This medicinal yeast can be isolated from dairy products, like milk, cheese, kefir, etc. However, getting the required amount of S. boulardii from probiotics is easier than getting it from food sources. This article has expressed the major health benefits of consuming S. boulardii probiotics. This yeast may have the power of treating many more health issues that will be discovered in the coming times.
