New Roots Hospital Bacteria Defense
Hospital Bacteria Defense is composed of Saccharomyces boulardii, considered a non-pathogenic, non-colonizing baker 's yeast species, which is very closely related to brewer 's yeast also known as S. cervesiae. We refer to it as a specific beneficial yeast probiotic. S. boulardii is recognized as a yeast and is not related to the Candida species (Candida albicans, tropicalis, etc .), which can cause pathogenic infections in the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts.
Hospital Bacteria Defense is used to prevent diarrhea associated with antibiotic use or protect from when coming in contact with C. difficile bacterium. Clostridium difficile, or C. difficile, is a gram-positive anaerobic bacterium that is now recognized as the major causative agent of colitis (inflammation of the colon) and diarrhea that may occur following antibiotic intake. C. difficile infection represents one of the most common hospital (nosocomial) infections around the world.
