L. acidophilus Rosell-52 has also been through numerous in vitro tests.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a unique yeast sold widely across Europe, especially in France and Germany.S. boulardii has undergone extensive scientific research documenting its safety, and investigating its properties when in contact with pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli and Salmonella.
