Each capsule contains pure S. boulardii, which is well-known for balancing candida issues. (Some supplement manufacturers substitute brewer's or baker's yeast for S. boulardii. Not Smidge®!)
You can take this saccharomyces boulardii probiotic supplement with your antibiotics (as guided by your healthcare provider), as it may not compromise the potency or effectiveness of the antibiotics.* So both can do their crucial jobs while you're on the mend.*
And even if you're not on antibiotics, Smidge® Yeastbiotic can nourish your digestive system.*
What does Yeastbiotic do?
Antibiotics will only attack bacteria, not yeast. People often have issues when on antibiotics, as they wipe out "good bacteria." And candida that has been lying dormant will take over along with an array of other unpleasant side effects.
S. boulardii, the friendly yeast strain found in Smidge® Yeastbiotic, may prevent and treat diarrhea caused by antibiotics. It does this by gently crowding out troublesome microbes in the gut and augmenting the intestinal absorption of D-glucose and sodium, which may enhance the uptake of water and electrolytes during occasional diarrhea.*
S. boulardii may help with the fatigue and brain fog often caused by antibiotics, too.
But that's just the beginning. S. boulardii can do an enormous amount of work to keep you feeling good.*
Studies show S. boulardii:
- Supports intestinal health and the microbiome*
- Preserves intestinal barrier function*
- Supports the immune system*
- May inhibit pathogenic yeast related to candida issues*
- May have broad antimicrobial activities against Clostridium difficile (C. diff), E. coli and other gastrointestinal pathogens*
That's why many doctors and practitioners turn to this helpful yeast when antibiotics have thrown everything out of whack.*
S. boulardii is a non-pathogenic, transient yeast long used to support normal bowel transit time.* Originally found on the skins of lychee and mangosteen fruits, S. boulardii has been used to help people balance their digestive systems for decades. Many randomized clinical studies show S. boulardii to be a useful probiotic, including in the treatment of mild antibiotic-associated diarrhea, C. diff, systemic candida overgrowth, traveler's diarrhea, and other inflammatory bowel conditions.*
