Each capsule contains 10 billion live cells of Saccharomyces boulardii, a beneficial species of yeast.
Hospital Bacteria Defense is composed of Saccharomyces boulardii, considered a nonpathogenic, noncolonizing baker’s yeast species, which is very closely related to brewer’s yeast, also known as S. cervesiae. We refer to it as a specific beneficial yeast probiotic. S. boulardii is recognized as a yeast and is not related to the Candida species (Candida albicans, tropicalis, etc.), which can cause pathogenic infections in the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts. Hospital Bacteria Defense is used to prevent diarrhea associated with antibiotic use.
