Normagut is a medication that contains the probiotic yeast, Saccharomyces boulardii. As a probiotic, it is intended to support the health of the gastrointestinal system. S. boulardii is a nonpathogenic or “good” germ that helps restore and support the normal flora of the gut.
Probiotics are not meant to be used as monotherapy for any disease, however, human trials have shown that probiotic supplementation can prevent and buffer some of the undesirable side effects that antibiotic therapy can cause.
