My question is: Does SF722 kill probiotics or Boulardii? If it doesn’t, this could possibly be something you can take with it.
I am interested in trying out Boulardii sometime down the road to see if it completely clears things up. I am willing to be a guinea pig. I recently watched a documentary title “how beer saved the world” (watch instantly on netflix). Back in the middle ages, they drank beer for health properties and I am wondering if beer would be anti-candida or not!? I am getting married in June, so I will have to try it out then.
Here is the answer. Raster did it for me. Yes, S. Boulardii is a yeast, and the antifungals will kill it creating a battle ground in the intestines. I have many reasons to think about S.Boulardii in the future. One of the reasons is you must stop the natural products that have bactericidal activity in order to give a chance to the bacterial flora to recover. Oregano Oil, Garlic, GSE, etc are strong bactericidal probably very aggressive to the beneficial flora. If you want to recover the flora, you need to think about stopping these kind of supplements some day. But, during that time you need something to stop the yeast, something that be only antifungal. It could be S. Boulardii and the diet. Why not ??? Could be Nystatin and the diet too. There are some research claiming S. Boulardii allow the beneficial flora to regrowth at high speed better than with any other supplement.
Here is one study mentioning anticandida activity.
