S. boulardii probiotic
Having a bout of diarrhoea? Bizarre as it may sound, research suggests that a natural yeast called Saccharomyces boulardii may be able to come to your rescue. This particular probiotic may help reduce the runs. S. boulardii has a sticky outer membrane which attaches itself to bacteria which can be harmful to us, such as E. Coli and Salmonella, and removes them from the system – naturally. One particular study showed it to be as fast and effective as some anti-diarrhoeal medications, but yet it is a completely natural supplement. S. boulardii is one of the most researched probiotics in the world.
