What Makes Florastor® Unique?
As the only probiotic supplement with Saccharomyces boulardii lyo CNCM I-745, Florastor® offers unique advantages you won’t find with other probiotics.
Tight junctions between the gut cells - the physical barriers that control the movement of fluids and electrolytes – are necessary to prevent access to the cells that bacteria can access and destroy, which could potentially cause diarrhea33,34. Florastor® helps preserve the integrity of tight junctions by preventing bacteria from binding to and invading gut cells. Instead, the bad bacteria binds to the Florastor cells and is flushed out through the digestive system process.* Florastor has also been shown to prevent the bad bacteria from growing28

Over 70% of your immune system is located in your digestive tract so taking care of it means also taking care of your immune system. But did you know that Florastor not only helps strengthen your digestive balance for increased immune support, but it also actively stimulates the production of Immunoglobulin A (IgA), the primary antibody in your digestive tract that defends against infections?*" Other probiotics don't have this direct effect on your immune system.
Florastor increases the production of digestive enzymes which helps break down dietary sugars. This improves the absorption of water and nutrients in your small intestine so you can get more nutrition from your foods.*
Florastor® increases levels of the short-chain fatty acid preferred by your body for energy by 60% and promotes better overall gut health.*
Unlike most probiotics that are made up of bacteria, Florastor® is a unique probiotic strain that is derived from a special yeast found on the skins of tropical fruits. The cell sizes are 10x larger than a bacteria cell, which means a single cell can cover more of the gut than a single cell from a bacterial probiotics.*
Antibiotics kill both the good and bad bacteria in your digestive tract. Florastor helps restore digestive balance that can be disrupted by antibiotics. And because Florastor is a yeast-based probiotic, NOT a bacterial probiotic, it is naturally resistant to most common antibiotics and continues to work during antibiotic use.*
Florastor® has been clinically demonstrated to destroy harmful toxins in two ways: by blocking the production of toxins or by binding directly to the toxin. Florastor produces anti-toxin proteins that prevent pathogenic bacteria from releasing the toxins.* These proteins can also bind directly to the toxin, which inhibits toxicity.
The proprietary active ingredient of Florastor®, S. boulardii CNCM I-745, was first introduced in the 1950s as a probiotic drug, backed by robust clinical evidence and the highest quality manufacturing processes. In the United States, S. boulardiiCNCM I-745 is marketed as a dietary supplement, however Biocodex, the makers of Florastor, has retained the original pharmaceutical-grade manufacturing process to produce Florastor.
Florastor is produced at a single manufacturing plant located in France. This is the only plant that produces S. boulardii CNCM I-745, and it’s only produced for Florastor. The raw materials used to grow and ferment the probiotic cells undergo strict quality control assessments which conform to Good Manufacturing Practices (NSF Certified GMP) to ensure high-quality, consistency and efficacy of the final product. The probiotic cells in Florastor are freeze-dried to ensure stability and to retain efficacy; this is in contrast to other probiotics which are heat-dried. Heat-dried probiotics may tend to lose efficacy quickly and are not stable at room temperature in comparison to a freeze-dried process. Due to this manufacturing process, Florastor does not need to be refrigerated.
