What is Saccharomyces boulardii?
Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-pathogenic, tropical strain of yeast that is used as a probiotic.
Is Saccharomyces boulardii related to Candida yeast infections?
Saccharomyces boulardii has no relation to Candida species that cause infection in the genitals and intestine. Candida species have the opposite effect to saccharomyces boulardii. While candida lowers the acidity of the intestine, Saccharomyces boulardii produces acids.
Can I take Saccharomyces boulardii whilst suffering from constipation?
Clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Saccharomyces boulardii treating mild diarrhoea however there is no evidence on its benefits in treating constipation that we are aware of and it may if fact slow stool transit time. Seek the advice of a qualified healthcare practitioner in relation to this query.
Do I have to store SB-500™ in the refrigerator?
Saccharomyces Boulardii is stable at room temperature so does not need to be stored in the refrigerator to remain potency to the expiration date on the label.
Refrigerating SB-500™ will not effect the quality of the product if you choose to store at 8 degrees Celsius.
Can I consume Saccharomyces boulardii while on other probiotics?
Saccharomyces Boulardii is compatible with other probiotic bacterial strains.
Can I consume SB-500™ whilst on antibiotics?
Saccharomyces boulardii is antibiotic resistant so can be taken with antibiotics without adverse effects on its potency. However always consult with your doctor regarding medications and interactions.
Can I consume SB-500™ whilst on antifungals?
Common antifungals are known to kill Saccharomyces Boulardii. If your health care practitioner prescribes antifungals with SB-500™, the SB-500™ should be consumed away from antifungal doses thereby maximising its efficiency.
Will I have an allergic reaction to SB-500™?
SB-500™ is tested for specific allergens (peanuts, almonds and walnuts) and food intolerances, specifically wheat (gluten) and dairy (casein). It also undergoes tests for heavy metals and 107 different pesticides.
If you are a highly allergic patient follow the advice of your medical practitioner and have them contact customer service on 1300 852 775 so we can supply them with the latest allergens assay for the ingredients SB-500™.
Is SB-500™ safe to use in children?
Clinical trials assessing the effect of Saccharomyces Boulardii in children from 6 months to 14 years of age have found no adverse effects to our knowledge, however 500mg is an adult dosage so consult with your healthcare practitioner on the appropriate dosages for children. Saccharomyces Boulardii may be contradicted in children with constipation.
