* Malassezia ~ Probiotic Warning (2) *
While Conducting another Acidophilus Experiment
the results of which i will post when completed
i have come across additional Information
regarding different types of Probiotics
and since i have been touting from the Rooftop
the Acidophilus Benefits i have experienced
derived from its use wherever possible
i thought it prudent and rather important
to share my recent findings
as it appears the case of Probiotic Use
is not ‘universally’ safe for many individuals
or not so under certain conditions.
I Cannot Vouch for the Accuracy of all this Information
but it is collectively and by all means an Expansion and Confirmation
of what i have already Posted in the First ‘Probiotics Warning’ Entry
that was included by a Company as a caution of use of their Probiotic.
( I have included below their Possible Source of this Info – Photo1)
Since i cannot copy/paste and post the entirety of contents of other sites
i will attempt to present a Summary and Provide a Link
with sufficient info covering most of the topic in one place.
A ‘Summary of Gathered and Collated Info’
* Saccharomyces are Yeasts belonging in the Category of Fungi
Their Name means ‘Sugar Fungi’
* ‘Saccharomyces cerevisiae’, are used in making wine, bread, and beer
‘Saccharomyces bayanus’, also used in making wine, and
‘Saccharomyces boulardii’, used in medicine
* Some Saccharomyces are considered as Friendly Probiotics
with reported Beneficial effects under Normal conditions
~ ~ ~
* Fungemia is the Presence and Colonisation
of Yeasts/Fungi in the Bloodstream
* Internal Contamination of the Blood can cause Fungemia
* Saccharomyces are a Common Cause of Fangemia
in Immunosupresed Individuals
* Saccharomyces and Saccharomyces Boulardii,
are often included in many Probiotic Supplements

There are Many Risk Factors Listed as possible causes
but i shall name only a few closer related to Malassezia that i know of
though some people may have developed Malassezia proliferation
due to some of the other Risk Factors included in the Info Lists
– (Not all listed below)
Most Common Infection Risk Factors
* Frequency of Infection Increasing
possibly due to Increase of Antibiotic use
* Use of Broad-Spectrum Antibiotics
* Use of Steroids
* Use of Yeast Probiotics
* Lowered Intestinal Flora
(Due to Antibiotics and X-Rays) *1
* Serious Illness
* Suppressed Immune System
* Fungal Colonisation (varying Yeast species)
(Content In Parenthesis*1 is my addition)
Pretty much what i have been saying all along
about Proliferation Causes of Malassezia!
I must Clarify here that My Purpose of Presenting this Info
is Not to Enlighten the Reader about the Saccharomyces
as i know very little of them myself and learning as researching about them
but Due to having lavishly Presented my Findings of the Incredible Benefits
i have been Deriving from the Use of 2 Different Successfully Effective
Probiotic Combinations of Acidophilus Bifido-Bacteria Products
and to Sound a Warning Bell about the Variations of Combinations
of some Probiotic Products that include Probiotic Yeasts
This does Not mean avoiding Probiotics use altogether
but making sure
the Probiotic Products containing Acidophilus Bifidobacteria
Do Not Include Any Saccharomyces Yeasts.
An additional Problem with All Probiotic Products
is the ‘Encapsulating Agents, ‘i.e any Preservatives
and/or Type of Sugars included for Feeding the Bacteria.
They can cause headaches and other assorted funny symptoms
as Both my man and I discovered
only being in better condition than i am it took him much longer
to register and mention anything about them.
When he started complaining and considering seeing a doctor
i suspected they might be the cause and took him off them to verify.
Soon after discontinuing all symptoms disappeared.
This occurred and was verified a couple of times.
So now i give him some for a few days and stop for another few
but then his Malassezia seldom creates debilitating
or torturing problems for him except in rare occasions
when he gets Flair-ups due to Colds, Stress, etc
One particular Australian brand i tried just half a capsule in the breakfast
had me with a Blinding, extremely nauseating Migraine and blurred Vision
for Three full days … I threw the rest of them out and decided to stick with
the ones i can use -the way i have been using them- with only minimal
and brief symptoms and not risk any painful repeat unnecessarily.
* Other Probiotic Ingredients:
Inulin – Polydextrose, maltodextrin, sugar, phytates,
preservatives, artificial flavours or colours, wheat, gluten.
( Some of them likely to cause some problems to some people
and of course … Yeasts Love Sugars!…
So our Pharmaceutical Manufacturers – hopefully unintentionally
give us the Antidote bound with the Poison!
and No listing of it so we might have a choice.
Considering of course that Acidophilus Bacteria are Live creatures
Needing Food to Survive for months in an airtight capsule or container
i am not sure if there is a better solution to this bind
so as things stand it comes down to the Individual
to trial different Brands and weigh the Positives
against (IF) any Negative results
until finding the optimal for their needs.)
