saccharomyces boulardii

Okay kiddo, today we're going to learn about something called saccharomyces boulardii. It's a type of yeast that lives in your tummy!

Now, sometimes bad bacteria can get into your tummy and make you feel sick. Saccharomyces boulardii helps to fight those bad bacteria and keep your tummy feeling healthy.

It's kind of like having a superhero in your tummy! This yeast can also help you to digest food better and keep things running smoothly.

But wait, there's more! Saccharomyces boulardii can also help if you have diarrhea (which is when your tummy feels a little too runny), by making your poo more solid.

So, to sum it up, saccharomyces boulardii is a helpful little yeast that lives in your tummy and fights bad bacteria, helps digest food, and keeps things from getting too runny down there. Pretty cool, huh?
