Drug indicated in the treatment of acute diarrhea and in the prevention of diarrhea associated with taking antibiotics.
As a microorganic antidiarrheal, the pharmacological activities of Saccharomyces boulardii essentially comprise:
- The synthesis of group B vitamins (vitamins B1, vitamins B2, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, nicotinic acid), which are a growth factor for vitamin-dependent germs and a trophic factor in the digestive mucosa;
- Enzymatic action with marked increase in the activity of disaccharidases (Sucrase, Lactase, Maltase) without alteration of the intestinal mucosa;
- A microbial antagonist, by vital competition and barrier effect causing inhibition of the growth "in vitro" and "in vivo", of several microorganisms, namely bacteria and Candida albicans;
- An action on the immune system, particularly evident and verified when experimental infestations were carried out on the animal, with stimulation of non-specific immune defenses.
