About the ingredients...
Saccharomyces boulardii yeast
Saccharomyces boulardii is a unique, non-pathogenic and tropical yeast (fungus) - a hardy, acid-resistant, temperature-tolerant micro-organism. It differs greatly from other better-known species, such as acidophilus and bifidobacterium bacteria strains for example. Although it is in the same genus as Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s, brewer’s or dietary yeast), Saccharomyces boulardii is not linked to the Candida species (Candida albicans, tropicalas, etc.). Saccharomyces boulardii yeast was first isolated from lychee and mangosteen fruit in the 1920s by a French scientist called Henri Boulard.
Biotin is a water-soluble B-vitamin, also called vitamin B7 and formerly known as vitamin H or coenzyme R. It contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, normal macronutrient metabolism, normal psychological function, normal hair and skin and the maintenance of normal mucous membranes.

Vitamin D refers to a group of fat-soluble secosteroids. In humans, the most important compounds in this group are vitamin D3 (also known as cholecalciferol) and vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol). Vitamin D3 is included in the ProBio bowel Care formula.
Vitamin D contributes to the normal function of the immune system and healthy inflammatory response, normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus, normal blood calcium levels, the maintenance of normal bones, the maintenance of normal muscle function, the maintenance of normal teeth, it has a role in the process of cell division and is needed for normal growth and development of bone in children.

Olive leaf extract
The olive tree has long been held in great esteem, not least for producing both the fruit and the oil. In fact, it is one of the oldest cultivated trees. But the leaf is also noteworthy, not least because it contains oleuropein (a type of phenolic compound) and elenolic acid.
