About the benefits seen for Saccharomyces Boulardii

Saccharomyces boulardii is a yeast, which is a type of fungus. Saccharomyces boulardii was previously identified as a unique species of yeast. But now it is believed to be a strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast). Saccharomyces boulardii is used as medicine.

Saccharomyces boulardii is most commonly used for treating and preventing diarrhea, including infectious types such as rotaviral diarrhea in children, diarrhea caused by gastrointestinal (GI) take-over (overgrowth) by “bad” bacteria in adults, traveler’s diarrhea, and diarrhea associated with tube feedings. It is also used to prevent and treat diarrhea caused by the use of antibiotics.
How does it work?
Saccharomyces boulardii is called a “probiotic,” a friendly organism that helps to fight off disease-causing organisms in the gut such as bacteria and yeast.

Uses & Effectiveness?

Likely Effective for

  • Diarrhea in people taking antibiotics. Research shows that Saccharomyces boulardii can help prevent diarrhea in adults and children being treated with antibiotics. For every 9-13 patients treated with Saccharomyces boulardii during treatment with antibiotics, one fewer will develop antibiotic-related diarrhea.
  • Diarrhea. Research shows that Saccharomyces boulardii can prevent diarrhea in people with feeding tubes. It also helps reduce the length of time that acute diarrhea persists in infants and children by about 12 hours to 1 day. Saccharomyces boulardii also seems to shorten the duration of diarrhea in children with persistent diarrhea.
  • Rotaviral diarrhea. Research shows that giving Saccharomyces boulardii to infants and children can shorten the duration of diarrhea caused by a rotavirus by about 1 day.

Possibly Effective for

  • Acne. Research shows that taking Saccharomyces boulardii by mouth helps improve the appearance of acne.
  • Diarrhea caused by the bacteria Clostridium difficile. Taking Saccharomyces boulardii along with antibiotics seems to help prevent Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea from re-occurring in people with a history of recurrence. Taking Saccharomyces boulardii along with antibiotics also seems to help prevent first episodes of Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea. But experts don’t recommend using Saccharomyces for preventing first episodes.
  • Helicobacter pylori. Taking Saccharomyces boulardii by mouth along with standard H. pylori treatment helps treat this infection. About 12 people need to be treated with Saccharomyces boulardii for one patient who would otherwise remain infected to be cured. Taking Saccharomyces boulardii also helps prevent side effects such as diarrhea and nausea that occur with standard H. pylori treatment.
  • Diarrhea related to HIV. Taking Saccharomyces boulardii by mouth appears to reduce diarrhea related to HIV.
  • Traveler’s diarrhea. Taking Saccharomyces boulardii by mouth appears to prevent traveler’s diarrhea.

Possibly Ineffective for

  • Damage to the intestinal tract in preterm infants (Necrotizing enterocolitis; NEC). Research shows that giving Saccharomyces boulardii to preterm infants does not prevent NEC or death from any cause.

Insufficient Evidence for ( But some benefits shown )

  • Amoeba infections (amebiasis). Early research shows that taking Saccharomyces boulardii by mouth along with antibiotics reduces diarrhea and stomach pain in people with amoeba infections.
  • Crohn’s disease. Taking Saccharomyces boulardii seems to reduce the number of bowel movements in people with Crohn’s disease. Early research also shows that taking Saccharomyces boulardii along with mesalamine can help people with Crohn’s disease stay in remission longer. But taking Saccharomyces boulardii alone does not seem to help people with Crohn’s disease stay in remission longer.
  • Cystic fibrosis. Early research shows that taking Saccharomyces boulardii by mouth does not reduce yeast infections in the digestive tract of people with cystic fibrosis.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Research shows that taking Saccharomyces boulardii improves quality of life in people with diarrhea-predominant or mixed-type IBS. But Saccharomyces boulardii doesn’t seem to improve most IBS symptoms such as stomach pain, urgency, or bloating.
  • Jaundice in infants. Some infants develop jaundice after birth due to high bilirubin levels. Giving Saccharomyces boulardii to term infants might prevent jaundice and reduce the need for phototherapy in a small number of these infants. But it’s not known if Saccharomyces boulardii reduces the risk of jaundice in at-risk infants. Giving Saccharomyces boulardii to infants along with phototherapy doesn’t lower bilirubin levels better than phototherapy alone.
  • Ulcerative colitis. Early research shows that adding Saccharomyces boulardii to standard mesalamine therapy can reduce symptoms in people with mild-to-moderate ulcerative colitis.
  • Canker sores.
  • Fever blisters.
