Maintain the Balance of the Intestinal Flora and Promote Intestinal Health Florastor, the #1 probiotic worldwide, provides the unique benefits of a yeast-based probiotic. According to the World Health Organization, probiotics are "live microorganisms which, when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host." Florastor contains the active ingredient, Saccharomyces boulardii lyo, a non-pathogenic-pathogenic yeast found naturally on the skin of lychees and mangosteens. This friendly yeast-based probiotic helps maintain intestinal health. Yeast Probiotic Versus Bacterial Probiotic Florastor provides benefits of a friendly yeast-based probiotic. Florastor differs from bacterial probiotics for the following reasons: Yeast cells are bigger than bacterial cells, so yeast can provide increased gut coverage and further protect the intestinal tract†. Yeast can withstand the harsh environment of the stomach, while many bacteria are destroyed by acids in the stomach before they even reach the intestines. The body naturally eliminates the yeast in Florastor within 5 to 7 days after stopping use. Yeast probiotics, unlike bacterial probiotics, are not compromised by antibiotic use. Side Effects Since 1984 when worldwide tracking began, more than 13 billion doses of Saccharomyces boulardii lyo from Biocodex have been administered. With only rare instances of side effects, (less than 1%) patients reported constipation or thirst.
