Saccharomyces Boulardii And Candida
Can I take saccharomyces Boulardii while suffering from pytiriasis versicoloured? And does s. boulardii helps with candida overgrowth?
If someone is susceptible to fungal and yeast infections ... should he stay away from this specific type of probiotic called Saccharomyces Boulardii + MOS 5billions. I have a feeling it is making it worse. Please advise me thank you.
Unlikely the reason:: There have been reports of fungemia(fungus in the blood stream) from S.boulardii but In most cases, patients who developed fungemia in the setting of probiotic administration had severe comorbidities, were on immunosuppressive medication, had recent surgical intervention, or had recent prolonged hospitalization. Routine fungal infections of skin, vagina,hair or nails are not a contraindication. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Will taking Saccharomyces boulardi and a bacterial based probiotic together be a problem? Will the yeast cause the bacteria to be ineffective?
Probiotics: The intestinal flora and the interactions of various organisms is often not easy to predict and the introduction of Saccharomyces and Lactobacilli or other bacilli and which takes over will depend upon multiple poorly defined factors, and whether the patient is also receiving antibiotics for other reasons. There seems no contraindication to taking both, but simply eating Yogurt is quite effective. ...Read more
If you have anti-saccharomyces cerivisiae antibodies (asca), can u have negative reactions to foods/drinks containing this beneficial yeast?
Antibodies : Yes but be careful. High amounts of this antibody are found with celiac disease, chrone's disease and a few other disorders.

Yes: Please realize that candida is a normal part of every person's intestinal microbe community. Only when it gets out of control does it become a problem. Consider high dose (>200 billion colonies) of mixed probiotics and s boulardii 10 billion per day. At a different time of day take a yeast/candida herbal product contain oregano and pau d'arco (these do kill the probiotics as well). ...Read more
