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
