  • Florastor is a potent probiotic that is made of live freeze-dried yeast cells of the species Saccharomyces boulardii lyo. Once the cells are freeze-dried‚ they are put into capsules and sealed. Since freeze-drying keeps the yeast alive‚ each 250 mg capsule of Florastor is filled with active Saccharomyces boulardii lyo.

    Florastor probiotics have been shown to:

    Maintain the balance of ‘good’ microorganisms in the gut and crowd out ‘bad’ microorganisms Keep the gut functioning as it should Protect the supply of good microorganisms you already have in your gut. Improve quality and consistency of bowel movements

    What is a probiotic?

    Probiotics are often referred to as ‘friendly’ yeast or bacteria. They are taken to help the good organisms (yeast and bacteria) flourish and crowd out the bad organisms. Florastor probiotics can help maintain an optimal balance of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ microorganisms in your intestinal tract.

    What is Saccharomyces boulardii?

    Saccharomyces boulardii is a strain of yeast that is often cultured from tropical fruits such as lychee and mangosteen. It is commonly used to treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)‚ inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and cases of diarrhea that were caused by various things (antibiotics‚ drinking water while traveling‚ etc.). It works by binding to toxic microbes such as E. coli and Salmonella typhimurium. This friendly yeast also aids in digestion and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects.

    When you see Saccharomyces boulardii with the word ‘lyo’ at the end‚ this simply means that the yeast has been freeze-dried. Freeze-drying is a type of dehydration that causes the yeast to become more stable over longer periods of time. This means that if you store the bottle at room temperature until its expiration date‚ you can expect the same potency throughout that time. This is possible because the reduced water content inhibits the action of damaging microorganisms.

    Why Florastor?

    The Florastor brand has been trusted and recommended by doctors since 1953. In more than 100 countries around the world‚ people use Florastor probiotics to balance their gut flora and keep their digestive systems running on track. Before it is even packaged‚ each batch of their probiotics undergoes multiple check points with at least 16 doctors testing to ensure the cells are not only ‘good’ but present in the amount labeled on the bottle.

    Florastor is one of the few probiotics that are effective even while taking a course of antibiotics. Since it is made up of friendly yeast instead of bacteria‚ antibiotics will not have the effect of flushing it out of your system.

    Unlike drugs used to control diarrhea‚ Florastor helps to heal your gut without doing any damage to your intestines. It can also be taken for longer periods of time.
