Yomogi® and Yomogi® 250 mg – dosage and recommendations for use

After taking Yomogi or Yomogi 250 mg, high counts of non-­pathogenic viable yeast cells (S. boulardii) reach the intestine. S. boulardii does not colonise the intestinal tract. For this reason, S. ­boulardii is no longer detectable in the stools 4 to 6 days after the medication has been discontinued.

Yomogi is generally dosed as follows:


Take 1-2 hard gelatine capsules Yomogi daily with a sufficient amount of liquid before meals.

For the prophylaxis of travellers' diarrhea:

Take 1-2 hard gelatine capsules Yomogi daily for 5 days prior to departure.
