Prophylaxis and therapy of diarrhea with Yomogi®

Travellers’ diarrhea

In areas with poor hygiene, foreign travellers are exposed to a higher risk of infection. The most common pathogens which are responsible for enteritis include the enteropathogens E. coli and Salmonella. They exert their diarrhea-causing effect by the secretion of toxins which attack the intestinal wall ­directly. The main source of infection with pathogens which cause enteritis are the bacterial contamination of water and food.
For this reason, hygienic measures are therefore at the top of the list when it comes to preventing traveller´s diarrhea, such as the advice to eat only peeled or cooked food and to drink only boiled water (“peel it, cook it or leave it.”). But even following this advice is usually not sufficient. The efficacy of S. ­boulardii in the prevention of traveller's diarrhea has been substantiated in clinical trials.20
The efficacy of S. boulardii is based, for example, on the fact that the medicinal yeast inactivates toxins from pathogens which cause diarrhea.
Furthermore, S. boulardii can bind the infectious agent on its surface and thus eliminate it by natural means.

Prophylaxis with S. ­boulardii reduces the risk of travellers' diarrhea 20
