Saccharomyces boulardii is a tropical strain of yeast, first isolated from lychee and mangosteen fruit from Indochina in 1934 by a French scientist by the name of Henri Boulard. Saccharomyces boulardii although similar to Saccharomyces cerevisiae, differs in its non-pathogenic and biotherapeutic features. It has been found to be an effective probiotic that combats a wide range of gastrointestinal disorders and is commercially available in 90 countries around the world. S. boulardii have been found to be non-systemic, surviving only in the gastrointestinal tract at low pH levels, and capable of growth at temperatures up to 37°C (3). S. boulardii has sparked interest around the world, specifically due to its wide variety of interactions with other microbes and ability to disable gastrointestinal disorder and diarrheal symptoms. Current research has examined the science of taxonomy, particularly examining the relationship between S. boulardii and its close relative, S. cerevisiae. Although its genomic structure is nearly 100% similar and most argue that they should be of the same species, S. boulardii possesses unique abilities which allow it to survive in the most extreme conditions.
