I have liver disease and fibromyalgia: is saccharomyces cerevisiai a danger to my health?

I have liver disease and fibromyalgia: is saccharomyces cerevisiai a danger to my health?

Probably not: S. C. Is a species of yeast, likely the most widely studied, and has been used in winemaking, brewing, and baking for thousands years. It is present within the body, most commonly the cuticles of fingernails. I am unaware of it being dangerous to humans, even in presence of liver disease. There exists some intriguing research associating anibodies to this yeast with crohn's diseaase. Refer to id. ...Read more

If you have anti-saccharomyces cerivisiae antibodies (asca), can u have negative reactions to foods/drinks containing this beneficial yeast?

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. It is not an allergic antibody but rather indicates antibody against mannan in the outer coating of this form of yeast. Cross reactions with other yeasts including candida can occur. ...Read more

Will taking Saccharomyces boulardi and a bacterial based probiotic together be a problem? Will the yeast cause the bacteria to be ineffective?

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

Some vaccines contain saccharomyces cerivisiae. Could they cause u 2 form anti-saccharomyces cerivisiae antibodies, thus inducing Crohn's disease?

Probably not.: First of all, most vaccines don't go anywhere near the yeast, only recombinant vaccines use it. Secondly, the vaccines are purified, and the amounts of actual saccharomyces in the vaccine are very small, compared to the relatively huge amounts of the yeast in the bowel. So the likelihood of this being a problem is tiny. ...Read more

Was surprised to read saccharomyces boulardii can cause fatal infections in some people. Am I safe using it to help my c diff? I take prednis at times

Was surprised to read saccharomyces boulardii can cause fatal infections in some people. Am I safe using it to help my c diff? I take prednis at times

Good advice: Saccharomyces is a yeast that is considered relatively nonpathogenic in immunocompetent adults. Yes there are case reports of it proving fatal in rare instances. Keep in mind however that NOTHING is 100% guaranteed safe, so examine your personal risks before using ANYTHING, & stick with recommended dose & frequency of all medication & supplements (prescribed or otherwise). ...Read more

Since fungi can infect the central nervous system due to injections, why do some vaccines contain gmo saccharomyces cerevisiae?

Since fungi can infect the central nervous system due to injections, why do some vaccines contain gmo saccharomyces cerevisiae?

Yeasts: The explanation is a little complicated for the space we have here but the species you mentioned is a common yeast used in wine and bread making. The same way not all bacteria are bad (some of them necessary for gastrointestinal health) other organisms are not bad and can be used for medical purposes. We eat this organism all the time without consequences. ...Read more

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.

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 more

Why cardiac muscles do not exhibit lactic fermentation?

Why cardiac muscles do not exhibit lactic fermentation?

They would die...: Unlike skeletal muscle, which is generally used for short bursts of contraction, cardiac myocytes are specialized muscle cells that do not get "fatigued". That is because they are needed to continually be contracting, if they stopped, you would die. Lactic acidosis leads to muscle fatigue. In cardiac myocytes, hypoxia or low oxygen will, in fact, lead to cardiac lactic acidosis, e.g. Heart attack. ...Read more
