19,75 lei

Composition

One sachet of Levurin® oral powder contains 250 mg of lyophilized powder of Saccharomyces boulardii and 1000 mg of inulin.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a yeast resistant to the action of gastric and intestinal juices, antibiotics and sulfamides, but sensitive to the action of systemic and oral antifungals and quinoline derivatives (strain Saccharomyces boulardii Lessafre CNCM I – 3799 from the product Levurin® is genetically identical to Hansen strain CBS 5926).
Inulin is a polysaccharide of fructose and belongs to the class of carbohydrates known as fructans (inulin from Levurin® is a standardized extract with controlled therapeutic potential).

Mechanism of action

Saccharomyces boulardii can interfere with pathogenesis in the intestinal lumen through several mechanisms: the effect of pathogenic anti-toxins, the effect of inhibiting the development of pathogens, the effect of improving the integrity of the intercellular junction and the trophic effect on the intestinal mucosa.
Saccharomyces boulardii, when administered orally, reaches steady state within 3 days (in the small intestine and colon) and is eliminated within 3-5 days after discontinuation.
Levurin inulin is a substrate for yeast metabolismSaccharomyces boulardii and thus has the potential to support the mechanism of actionSaccharomyces boulardii.
