Saccharomyces boulardii is a healthy, probiotic yeast. Yeast-based probiotics are unique because they're not harmed by the drugs and chemicals that can damage other probiotics and bacteria. This makes Saccharomyces boulardii the perfect choice for dogs with guts stressed by gut-harming drugs and chemicals.
This friendly yeast delivers other gut benefits too. It helps maintain a healthy gut lining and studies show S. boulardii can influence parts of the immune system that maintain proper gut permeability.
Most probiotics are in a maltodextrin carrier, which is the highest known glycemic ingredient. All of our probiotics are made in small batches without any high glycemic ingredients.

How is Saccharomyces boulardii different from other probiotics?
Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic yeast while most probiotics are bacteria. As a probiotic yeast, S. boulardii is less susceptible to chemicals that can harm regular probiotics.
Does Saccharomyces boulardii contain maltodextrin?
None of our products or ingredients contain maltodextrin. Maltodextrin is a partially hydrolyzed sugar that is ultra-processed, provides no nutritional value and carries the highest glycemic index of any other food. We make sure all of our ingredients are free of all dextrins so we can always support a healthy immune system and gut environment.
