s. boulardii is magic for your gut

IMG_3467

A couple years ago my husband was bedridden with a horrible stomach flu, no matter of rice, charcoal, probiotics, yogurt, bacteria zapping pills would fix it. He was stuck in bed for 7 days.  Finally, I stumbled upon something online, “s. boulardii is the only probiotic yeast that can survive stomach acid and bile”…  Say that again…. “s. boulardii is the ONLY probiotic yeast that can survive stomach acid and bile”.

So I ran to the local health food store and stocked up on some of this amazing magical gut inflammation healing “s. boulardii”.  What I didn’t know was it’s benefits to the gut in general.  It fixed his torn up bowels in 24 hours.  I have since used this on myself and my kids at any onset of stomach flu and it stops it from continuing.

Here is a great scientific article from UCLA Medical Department of Medicine

Another article on the benefits of s. boulardii

The amazing things that s. boulardii has been proven to help improve:

  • Can be taken in combination with antibiotics to reduce the gut disruption and diarrhea.
  • Has shown to improve SIBO in cases it’s been used on.
  • Has shown to alleviate chron’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome.
  • Can kill or aide a stomach bug/flu in your child and adult in its track when taken at first onset.
  • Can help stop diarrhea once it’s started
  • Can aid in any type of gut inflammation that you or your child has (constipation, heart burn, stomach aches, etc).

About Britt's Health Tips

Started running at age 9 and always loved learning about nutrition and health. When I was 17 years old, 30lbs over weight and diagnosed with hypo-thyroidism I decided to heal myself through diet and exercise. Having fully recovered from that and having three children I have learned how to effectively heal my children through diet. I decided through pressure from friends to document my success on a blog and here I am. 2018 will be a big year for me. I hope to be well on my way to finishing my degree in Pediatric Nutrition.
