Florastor Information : NO PRESCRIPTION REQUIRED FOR FLORASTOR FlorastorT is Saccharomyces boulardii lyo, a non-pathogenic yeast used for intestinal problems.

Florastor Side Effects : Your intestines contain billions of bacteria and types of yeast, called flora, which are sensitive to changes in diet and stress. During periods of disruption, Florastor™ helps maintain normal balance of the intestinal flora. The active ingredient in Florastor ™ , Saccharomyces boulardii lyo , acts as a temporary flora to protect your intestinal tract and keep your intestines functioning well. Florastor is all-natural and works with your body to re-establish the micro-flora, thereby maintaining a digestive balance. Florastor by Biocodex has been successfully researched and tested in over 90 countries worldwide for over 56 years. The SBlyoTM strain has over 56-year record of safety for all ages including infants. All the clinical studies on Saccharomyces boulardii have been conducted using the SB lyoTM strain found in Florastor. Fourteen years of studies have been done in the US. These studies have been published in leading journals such as JAMA, Gastroenterology, and American Journal of Gastroenterology. SB lyo is a non-pathogenic yeast. It is not an acidophilus or Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Our SB lyoTM strain is protected through a patented lyophilize and fermentation process. Development temperature is at 30 degrees Celsius. It remains intact as it enters the digestive tract. There is no loss of activity due to heat or cold. Our patented lyophilize process for SB lyoTM provides over one billion live cells per 50 mg capsule, and five billion live cells per 250 mg capsule both with a shelf life of three years. Does not need to be refrigerated. Studies have shown it to be resistant to all commonly used antibiotics (except anti-fungals). When taking antibiotics, Florastor can be used in conjunction with your standard antibiotic protocols. The studies have shown SB lyoTM helps restore and protect normal micro flora.

Studies Have Shown Three Key Functions: Attacks certain bacterial toxins by means of substances produced by the yeast. This includes Toxins A & B associated with Clostridium difficile. Stimulates production of s-IgA, and IgG, which in turn strengthens the digestive tract defenses to help fight infection. Releases polyamines to help repair mucous membrane. These polyamines increase the activity of short chain fatty acids and disaccharide enzymes (lactase, maltase, sucrase), which helps to prevent different types of diarrhea. Stimulates the colonic mucosa in growing, multiplying, and repairing of intestinal cells. Studies have shown it may be effective against parasites, candida albicans, cholera, salmonella, C-difficile, IBS, crohn’s disease, IBS, traveler’s diarrhea, and antibiotic associated diarrhea.
