  • 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.

    great

    I use Florastor Capsule  when I take a med. to help with uti's because it will totally kill good bacteria too inside me. I learned that after severe stomach cramps every 20 mins or so. So these definitely help me from that ever happening again.


    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Stopped diarrhea frm collagenous colitis

    I was previously taking Uceris, a $1,500 a month prescription to stop diarrhea caused by collagenous colitis. While it normalized my bowels, it made me feel chronically exhausted and dramatically rose my blood sugars and HbA1C (I'm type-1 diabetic). After reading several reviews here and elsewhere, I decided to give it (and psyllium husk capsules) a try. I took 6-7 caps a day of Florastor (2 just before meals), and within a few days felt better (the diarrhea stopped). I also have Hashimoto's, but haven't noticed much of a difference with my thyroid health (as stated in articles elsewhere). I cannot recommend this product highly enough. HIGHLY effective.


    Pros

      It worked - quickly. No more diarrhea and severe dehydration. Dramatically reduced gas, bloating, irregularity.

    Cons

      That I can't use it all the time because of cost. I'd rather use this than Jarrow Saccharomyces boulardii+MOS, but the Jarrow seems to be doing ok at the same dose, with Jarrow's Allergen Free probiotic (with meals) and 1000 mg of psyllium husk caps (before each meal, as well).

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Florastor

    Florastor has been very helpful in keeping my intestines in check.


    Pros

      I like Florastor because I have had a lot of GI issues from being on antibiotics for a long time. The florastor is a friendly yeast that is good for my intestines, and is easy to take.

    Cons

      There is nothing I dislike about Florastor.

    Florastor

    It was easy to order and arrived very quickly.


    Pros

      Florastor was prescribed by my gastroenterologist and in the recent past it was available from PureFormulas at a cost about $10.00 lower than at my local pharmacy. It was a value. It seems to be always available at PureFormulas. The little bottles are useful for carrying liquids in a lunch box.

    Cons

      Now this same item is $10.00 more that what I used to pay at pure formulas and it is not a savings over my local pharmacy. It is never on sale. The company that makes it has no provision for recycling the glass bottles.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
