Saccharomyces Boulardii-anybody tried this?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Saccharomyces Boulardii is a probiotic yeast that is supposedly helpful for IBS, especially travelers diarrhea. I have a IBS with a sensitivity to gluten and casein. Being on the road a lot, there are often times when I dont pack a gluten free lunch and all I can find is a sandwich or something else with gluten. I know I will pay for it with an upset stomach and on the odd occasion  diarrhea exactly 24 hours after ingestion.  I bought some Saccharomyces Boulardii today, hoping it will help. Thanks for your thoughts!

Umm if you have celiac you paying for it alot more then with just a tummy ache....your upping your chances for secondary complications, other AI disease, chancing your immune system attacking more then just your gut (it attacks my brain and nervous system now), chances of cancer, etc.

There are gluten pills like GlidenX but those just make it less noticeable and lessen the damage...I noticed it shortened my major symptoms from accidental exposure...but I still had the longer term quirk of numbness etc that shows it does not stop antibodies from being made and attacking your insides.

Your better off investing in boxes of gluten free meal bars like Julian Bakery, Kind, etc and keeping them in the car.....PS last time I checked at gas stations I found. Wonderful Pistachios gluten-free, Rythem Kale CHips gluten-free, Some gluten-free corn chips, gluten-free hard boiled eggs, gluten-free fruit cups, EPIC gluten free pork rinds and jerky......FFS do not poison yourself with a dang sandwich like a bloody idiot.

BarryC,

Ennis_Tx has given you great advice I have used some of them (his suggestions) myself.

So as to not duplicate his response I was in CVS today (there are several locations) so this should be easy to do.

I don't know how well they travel though.  But they have "No Cow bars" which are both casein and gluten free bars.

**** I have personally have not tried them but they are readily available. Depending on if your super sensitive or not most of them use Almonds from  a shared facility or processed on equipment that also process gluten.  So be sure to read their allergy statement before trying them.

Jerky, Nuts, or Pork rinds are all great easy, natural, portable snacks.  And of course.

I am a fan of Sunflower seeds.  And pumpkin seeds are also commonly available today as well as fresh fruits often even like Apples and Banana's in gas stations even.

If you have use of a spoon apple sauce is nice or pork and beans travel well. 

Also though it is not on the menu boards Hardees (may be Carl Jr's depending on where you live) all of  their burgers can be ordered low carb and with a side salad.  And since they don't pre-make their salads because their is not high demand you can ask them to leave off the grated cheese strips put on most salads these days.

Also Wendy's has a nice Taco Salad and their Chili's never bother me and I always ask for corn chip strips to mix with my chili.  they gladly substitute when you ask for them.

I have tried your Saccharomyces Boulardii you mentioned and I think it might help IBS but I would be careful as Ennnis_Tx said to assume it might help your Celiac disease.

I hope this is helpful.

Posterboy,
