  • 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.

    Best probiotic!

    My family has benefited tremendously from Florastor. We were given a sample from the paediatrician and I was amazed at how effective it was. I was even more amazed to find that Florastor is made from a yeast and not a bacteria placing it in a class by itself. I wouldn't take antibiotics without Florastor as the name says it restores the flora (which is typically destroyed by antibiotics).


    Pros

      Its very effective no bloating no aftertaste tastes OK if you need open capsule and sprinkle it on food.

    Cons

      Nothing.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Better and cheaper than VSL#3

    Had total colectomy and J pouch 5 years ago. Have had pouchitis since then. VSL#3 was helpful but Florastor has done a much better job and I don't have to deal with refrigeration yogurt etc. I was using VSL#3-DS which requires an RX and is more expensive even with insurance. The PureFormulas price was the best I found and the service was very quick.


    Pros

      No refrigeration and no mixing with yogurt etc. No RX. No insurance hassles.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great Stuff!

    My 82 year old father was in the hospital for months with a c-diff infection. His gastroenterologist put him on Florastor while in the hospital. Previous to this my father has had bouts of diarhea and constipation. It was chronic. Ever since hes been on florastor hes been regular. It has been a God send! I have IBS. I will start taking this product as well.


    Pros

      Capsules are easy to open and mix with food/liquid.

    Cons

      Its a bit expensive but its worth it!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Florastor does the job!

    Ive been using Florastor for a number of years but recently discovered that I could buy it online through PureFormulas. My gynecologist a female doctor recommended it to address my intestinal difficulties the result of antibiotics killing off the good bacteria along with the bad bacteria. Florastor compensates for the loss of the good bacteria and restores normalcy in my digestive tract. Thank you PureFormulas!


    Pros

      Doesnt need refrigeration. Has been used for many years in Europe.

    Cons


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Best ever!

    I have been using assorted acidophilus products for over 22 years and Florastor beats them all! No need to refrigerate which is a bonus. One in the am and one in the pm is all you need! This price beats any I have seen in the stores.
