[Efficacy of Bowladii] Is it against Candida? 3 benefits of the yeast bouladii

What is the identity of the intestinal medicine prescribed together with antibiotics in the hospital?

Boulardii's  Efficacy
1. Improvement of acute diarrhea and various diarrheal symptoms
2. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
3. Anti-Candida
Hello. A pharmacist who reads a dissertation.
You must have experienced at least once when you were prescribed antibiotics at the hospital and you were prescribed antibiotics together. In order to prevent side effects such as indigestion, abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhea caused by the death of beneficial bacteria in the body due to the action of antibiotics, intestinal tablets are prescribed together. Today, let's take a look at Saccharomyces boulardi, a major component of intestinal tablets prescribed to alleviate the side effects of antibiotics.
Saccharomyces bouladi is a type of probiotic, and because it is a yeast, not a bacterium, it is characterized by strong viability, surviving in high temperature and acidic environments. Because of this, they survive even in a very debilitating intestinal environment, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Antibacterial activity as strong as its viability is also a characteristic of Saccharomyces boulardii.
1. Improvement of acute diarrhea and various diarrhea symptoms

Have you ever experienced diarrhea with sudden abdominal pain when you ate cold food, spicy or salty food, or while traveling  Clinical research results showing that Saccharomyces bouladi is useful for improving symptoms of acute diarrhea  have been continuously reported in academia.

This year  's Journal of Fungi published a meta-research result that comprehensively reviewed existing papers on Saccharomyces boulardii. In this study, the results of reviewing the major clinical studies of Saccharomyces boulardii are reported as follows.
" It has been observed to contribute to the improvement of several diarrheal symptoms, including pediatric diarrhea, antibiotic-related diarrhea, acute diarrhea, traveler's diarrhea caused by bacteria, viruses or parasites, and intestinal nutrition-related diarrhea. "

2. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
If you have to rush to the bathroom when you are stressed out, you must have experienced it yourself or seen it at least once in your neighborhood. Medically, it is diagnosed as 'Irritable Bowel Syndrome'. It is a phenomenon that occurs more frequently in students, especially among students, and   for those who suffer from this symptom, it can be a significant stressor.

In the same paper as the one introduced earlier, clinical studies on the improvement of Irritable Bowel Syndrome of Saccharomyces bouladi are also reviewed and the results are reported. 
" Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms, including frequent abdominal bloating, abdominal pain, and intestinal transport disturbance, also improved with the administration of Saccharomyces bouladi. "

3. Anti-Candida
Saccharomyces boulardi, characterized by strong viability and antibacterial activity,  has been reported to be helpful in eliminating intestinal diseases as well as Candida. Candida is generally known as the causative agent of vaginosis, and in addition to this,  it is a fungus designated as the cause of skin diseases, indigestion, reflux esophagitis, and chronic fatigue.
 In 2009,  FEMS Yeast Research published a study to elucidate the anti-Candida mechanism of Saccharomyces boulardii.
" This suggests that Saccharomyces boulardi may be used for the prevention and treatment of Candida-induced infections. "

Above, we briefly looked into the main functions of Saccharomyces bouladi, which have been verified in the academic world. Don't forget that Saccharomyces bouladi is not a resident bacterium that lives in the human intestine, so continuous intake is important.
We will always come back with useful content.
always be healthy :)
