Viridian Synbiotic Saccharomyces Boulardii is an expert formulation comprising `good` gut bacteria and added prebiotics.
The non-pathogenic yeast saccharomyces boulardii was first discovered by French microbiologist, Henri Boulard in 1920 in the skin of Lychee fruit.
Synbiotic saccharomyces boulardii includes five strains of Lactobacili and Bifidobacteria, plus prebiotics. The unique Prebiotic FS2-60 offers full-spectrum prebiotic oligosaccharide and plant-derived inulin. FS2-60 is not digested but is utilised by the friendly flora to increase colonisation of Lactobacilli and the Bifidobacteria whilst reducing the foothold of unfriendly species.
There are some 400 species of bacteria in the gut including Bacteroides, Lactobacillus, Clostridium, Fusobacterium, Bifidobacterium, Eubacterium, and Peptostreptococcus. Gut bacteria that have been identified as suitable ingredients in food supplements include Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus species. It is critical to the maintenance of human health that a balance is preserved between these species.
