Product Overview

Each capsule contains 10 billion live cells of Saccharomyces boulardii, a beneficial species of yeast that provides protection from potentially pathogenic C. difficile bacterial infection. 

Hospital Bacteria Defense is composed of Saccharomyces boulardii, considered a nonpathogenic, noncolonizing 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 albicanstropicalis, 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 to protect when coming into contact with Clostridium difficilebacteria.

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 nosocomial (hospital-related) infections around the world.


Each vegetable capsule contains:
Saccharomyces boulardii 10 billion CFU
Vitamin C 5 mg
Other ingredients: Vegetable magnesium stearate and maltodextrin in a non√ɬ¢√¢‚Äö¬¨√¢‚ǨÀúGMO vegetable capsule composed of vegetable carbohydrate gum and purified water.


Children 6–12 years old, adolescents 13–17 years old, and adults: Take 1–3 capsules daily or as directed by your health-care practitioner.
