For bowel calm, Saccharomyces boulardii

S. boulardii has been internationally acclaimed as the number one probiotic for diarrhoea - to reduce discomfort and urgency and to restore control and regular bowel movements. For bowel calm Saccharomyces boulardii is a natural probiotic food supplement and not a medicine. It is a completely natural probiotic offering support for fast acting bowel calm, comfort and control when you need it most.

Background Information

Diarrhoea can be defined as an increase in the frequency and amount of loose stools. It can be caused by a virus or bacteria - usually due to the ingestion of contaminated drinking water, undercooked meat and eggs or poor standards of hygiene.

If these situations occur, the body's reaction to the pathogens is twofold - it introduces large amounts of fluid into the large intestines, and makes the intestines more active by contracting frequently in order to flush out irritable micro-organisms, resulting in diarrhoea.

Drugs such as Loperamide work by preventing muscle contractions in order to stop diarrhoea, but these medicines do not remove the harmful bacteria from the body.

How does For bowel calm work?

Saccharomyces boulardii - a unique probiotic yeast which is sold widely in the US, Scandinavia, Germany & France. S. boulardii has undergone extensive clinical research demonstrating its ability to flush out pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella, in order to work against diarrhoea.

Directions

For bowel calm can be given to adults and children (from 3 years old upwards) with the following recommendations:

  • For diarrhoea, take 1 or 2 capsules depending on severity of symptoms, and up to 4 capsules per day, or as professionally directed.
  • For Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), take 1 capsule twice a day.
  • For Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) eg. Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis, Crohn's Disease, take 3 capsules a day.
  • For recurrent >Clostridium difficile infection, take 2 capsules twice a day.
  • For Candida Overgrowth, take 3 capsules twice a day.

FAQ: Can I take 2 probiotic supplements at the same time?

Yes! If you want to, and they will have a cumulative effect.
