Saccharomyces boulardii is a health-promoting, probiotic yeast. It was first identified in the 1920s by French microbiologist Henri Boulard. Since its discovery, there have been 250 peer-reviewed articles examining S. boulardii, making this one of the most studied probiotics available. S. boulardii is a non-pathogenic yeast and is distinctly different from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, or "brewer's yeast."
Saccharomyces boulardii has been shown to support gastrointestinal health by boosting secretory IgA (sIgA) levels. sIgA is an immunoglobulin (protective antibody) that is found in the digestive tract and in mucosal secretions throughout the body. Maintaining healthy sIgA levels is crucial for supporting immune health, particularly in the gastrointestinal system, which is exposed to pathogenic organisms and viruses. sIgA acts as the first line of defense against foreign invaders in the gut by attaching and neutralizing proteins that are unrecognized by the body. Depleted levels of sIgA are often found in people with low immune response, food intolerance and dysbiosis. Dysbiosis occurs when fewer than normal probiotic organisms and an overabundance of potentially harmful bacteria, yeast or parasitic organisms prevail. In addition to boosting sIgA levels, S. boulardii promotes gastrointestinal health by competing for space and nutrients against pathogens.
To be an effective probiotic, microorganisms must have certain qualities to withstand the natural defense factors of the host. This includes resistance to gastrointestinal transit (enzymes, bile salts, organic acids and pH fluxes) and the ability to thrive at human core temperatures. This formulation of Saccharomyces boulardii is a stomach acid-resistant probiotic, proven to survive high temperatures and transit into the intestines. Each capsule includes 5 billion colony forming units of the probiotic yeast. The formula is freeze-dried, lactose-free and strain-verified through genetic typing to ensure maximum efficacy.
- Balances Gastrointestinal Flora
- Boosts Immune Function
- Supports Gastrointestinal Barrier Function and Integrity
As a probiotic yeast, S. boulardii actively promotes healthy gastrointestinal flora, strengthens intestinal barrier function, and enhances immune function. S. boullardii has been shown to ensure that foods and nutrients from the diet are properly absorbed, while blocking the entrance of potentially harmful substances. It has been shown to promote healthy microbial balance by competing against harmful bacteria.

Every product on this website was formulated with the mindset that my family and I would be using each nutritional supplement.
When you go into a product formulation knowing that your own family and children will use these products it ensures there will never be any compromise…
Plus, I want only the best for my online community and private practice clients. And, since people come to me for results after failing many times in the past, I have to know that every one of these products are truly the best of the best and will help people on their healing journey…
Functional Medicine Formulations
It’s important to understand that not all nutritional supplements are created equal.
For example, in a Functional Medicine practice only methylated or highly bio-available vitamins and minerals will be used in order to make it easy for the body to utilize.
Not only do these formula get better results, but they do not build up as toxins in the body or simply get excreted in the urine like most cheaper forms…
Zero Compromise Policy
I made a promise to myself when I first started formulating the Equilibrium Nutrition line that I would not compromise on quality…
Even if a product cost me a few more dollars, I would take any shortcuts in order to make a product for less.
This has enabled Equilibrium to set itself apart even in the Functional Medicine community as a leader in the best ingredients used.
Besides never compromising on using the highest quality ingredients available when formulating our nutritional supplements, I make sure that each batch is 3rd Party tested for contaminants like:
- Heavy metals
- Standard dosages
This then allows me to be confident when consuming these products myself and knowing that the dosages are what is stated on the bottle.
Again, this leads to better user results and happier customers and wellness clients!
Consistency & Freshness
Another way in which the Equilibrium Nutrition supplement line sets itself apart as the leader in the industry is by always producing fresh orders every couple of months.
Our products do not sit in warehouses for over a year…
Instead we maintain freshness with smaller continuous batch orders along with climate controlled fulfillment centers.
This guarantees purity, freshness, and taste.
This is a difference you can both see and taste with every bottle!
At Equilibrium Nutrition we strive to provide the fastest and most convenient shipping available!
