Consumers are more aware than ever that having a powerful immune system is key to stay healthy. In this immunity market, probiotics are among the main ingredients. The probiotic yeast Saccharomyces boulardii, Lynside® PRO SCB, is well known to support gut heath. But did you know that it may play a role on microbiota where 70% to 80% of immune cells are located?
The probiotic Saccharomyces boulardii, Lynside® PRO SCB is well known to support gut heath. But did you know that it plays a role on microbiota? As microbiota may help to maintain a healthy immune system or fight against pathogens, it’s important to understand several mechanisms of action within the gut which are involved in the immune response.
With 70% to 80% of immune cells localized in the gut, the intricate interplay between the gut microbiota and the local mucosal immune system is increasingly recognized to also affect systemic immunity; for years, microbiota-directed interventions have been investigated for their potential beneficial effect on the immune system.
Saccharomyces boulardii, one of the most documented probiotics, interacts within the gut microbiota; S. boulardii is studied for its different roles through direct or indirect interactions in the immune response; according to clinical studies or in-vitro studies, it has been shown that the probiotic yeast may play an important role in the induction of IgA and cytokines, immune cells maturation, anti-inflammatory effects or binding pathogens.
