BIFIDOBACTERIUM SPECIES

Bifidobacterium represents a genus within the phylum Actinobacteria which is one of the major phyla in the healthy intestinal tract of humans. Bifidobacteria are anaerobic, non-sporulating Gram-positive rods representing ubiquitous inhabitants of the human oro-gastrointestinal tract and vagina.

The genus consists of more than 50 species, with only 10 species being found in humans. Bifidobacterium is one of the most abundant genera in adults, but its predominance is even more pronounced in infants, especially during lactation, when they can constitute the majority of the total bacterial population.

They are one of the pioneering colonizers of the early gut microbiota, and they are known to play important roles in the metabolism of dietary components, otherwise indigestible in the upper parts of the intestine, and in the maturation of the immune system. Bifidobacteria have been shown to interact with human immune cells and to modulate specific pathways, involving innate and adaptive immune processes.

HEALTH BENEFITS

  • Helps reduces dental caries
  • Enhances immunity¬†
  • Maintains a healthy digestive system
  • Prevent/treat irritable bowel syndrome, gas, severe bloating and Diarrhoea
  • Inhibits pathogenic bacteria like E.coli
  • Assists in the absorption of calcium and other vitamins and minerals
  • Prevention of side-effects of oral antibiotic therapy
  • Produces important B vitamins
  • Eliminates the nitrates commonly found in foods ingested by humans
  • Helps prevents vaginal infections
  • Helps improve lactose digestion
  • Ferments indigestible fibers, thereby producing more energy
  • Synthesizes several of the B vitamins
  • Assists in mineral absorption, especially iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc
  • Helps decompose nitrosamines (cancer-causing substances) and suppress the production of nitrosamines in the intestines
  • Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels
  • Helps decreases allergic reactions
  • In babies and infants, establishes infant microflora, reduces death among very low birth weight infants and increases immunity
  • Produces lactic and acetic acids that lower the intestinal pH and further inhibit the undesirable bacteria
