Los Angeles, CA, March 28, 2006 – Saccharomyces Boulardii + MOS has been Up-Formulated and now contains 5.0 billion organisms per capsule, up from 1.5 billion. The SRP remains unchanged at $20.95 for a bottle of 100 capsules.
Saccharomyces Boulardii + MOS has the following benefits:
- Helps to maintain integrity of the intestinal wall
- Inhibits bacterial attachment to gut epithelial cells
- Reduces proliferation of undesirable bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract
- Stimulates immune receptors
The combination of Saccharomyces boulardii and MOS (mannan-oligosaccharide) provides enhanced support to the intestinal tract and assists gut immune response against undesirable bacteria. MOS directly blocks bacterial attachment to the epithelial cells of the intestine and reduces their proliferation. The common yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, has surprising benefits when utilized as a source of mannan-oligosaccharide. Mannan oligosaccharides contain cell wall fragments obtained from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Yeast cells are fractured (lysed) and the resulting culture is centrifuged to isolate the cell wall components according to weight. The components then are washed and spray dried.
“Mannans have specific structures that are recognized by immune cells,” says Dallas Clouatre, Consultant for Jarrow Formulas. “They exist on the cell surfaces or membranes as the primary antigenic or immune-reactive components of whole yeast cells and cell walls. Many pathogenic bacteria attach to the intestinal wall surface (epithelium) using mannose-specific attachments. MOS provides competitive binding sites for these intestinal pathogens, which is to say that the pathogens attach to the MOS rather than to the intestinal wall surface. Inasmuch as MOS is not digested in the small intestine, bacteria bound to MOS most likely remain attached to these yeast products as they pass through the gut and leave the intestine without attaching to the epithelium.”
