Saccharomyces boulardii is a yeast, and trials shows it's breaking down a bacteria called clostridium difficile. One should avoid this if there is any problem with fungemi.
Another thing: try to avoid bifidum bacteries if you are going to find good probiotics, or better; avoid all kind of bacteria that has a name with bidfidum in it to be sure- the SCD diet avoids it.
The three probiotics that are recommended when making your own yoghurt is:
if you find this, then add it: lactobacillus acidophilus - these three are working well together, again according to the SCD diet.
Other good bacteria is:
lactobacillus rhamnosus GG
Some say that to digest and let those probiotic bacterias work you also need prebiotica. Prebiotica is things like: Psyllium.
I'm not sure if the SCD diet use psyllium, anyone who knows?
...oh, and I forgot: those probioticum boosts the immunesystem......
