Florastor® is the #1 Probiotic Worldwide. (That's quite an accomplishment!)
What is a probiotic?
Probiotics contain live micro-organisms (good bugs like yeast or bacterium) that, when taken, produce health benefits. For example: Lactobacillus acidophilus is a probiotic often found in yogurt.
Florastor® has been shown to be effective through 50 years of use and many research studies:
Multiple research studies have shown that Florastor® (Saccharomyces boulardii lyo) can be taken:
To promote intestinal health†
To maintain intestinal flora†
Promotes 'good' microorganisms in the gut†

Antibiotics are necessary to treat bacterial infections like strep throat or ear infections, but they are not without side effects. One out of five people taking antibiotics will suffer from antibiotic-associated diarrhea, or AAD. One way to help protect your tummy from AAD is to try a probiotic supplement like Florastor and Florastor Kids, which have been clinically proven to help prevent and manage AAD. Florastor and Florastor Kids contain a beneficial yeast called Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii) that helps repopulate your tummy with good microorganisms that protect against AAD. Because Florastor contains a yeast probiotic, it won't be killed off by antibiotics like bacterial probiotics will be. Florastor comes in a capsule, and Florastor Kids, which is safe to use in children as young as 2 months, is a powder, so it can be mixed into formula, juice, soft foods like applesauce, etc.
One of you will win a prize pack containing the following products: Florastor (box of 20 capsule blister pack - $22 value) and Florastor Kids (box of 20 powder packets - $22 value).
