Thoughts on Saccharomyces boulardii?

In researching some different probiotics, I came across Saccharomyces boulardii and this article in particular.

Would it be beneficial to increase the yeast in my water kefir grain culture?

On second thought, in reading about yeast infections and people who stay away from Kombucha, perhaps my culture is just fine.

I kind of want to add them. I don't think it would harm anything (they might not even survive), and it would make my batch somewhat more diverse / unique. Although on the other hand, I don't want an accidental culture of potentially parasitic fungi. 1st world paleo problems, haha. (Same guys go in Kombucha, so, it should be fine, right?)

Don't know about kefir, but I have been prescribed boulardii for my leaky gut syndrome by my functional medicine practitioner. He said he noticed a very good recovery of the gut lining in his patients using this particular probiotic.
