While traveling in Indochina in the early 1920’s, Henri Boulard, a French microbiologist, noticed the locals drinking a special tea—made from lychee and mangosteen—to help with digestion. Fascinated by the healing properties of these two tropical fruits, Boulard conducted further research and discovered the active ingredient to be what he later called Saccharomyces boulardii.
S. boulardii was first introduced to the market in 1953 by the French pharmaceutical company Biocodex. Since then, it has become available in over 100 countries making it the #1 probiotic worldwide.†9
