You’ve probably heard a great deal lately about probiotics and how beneficial they are for pretty much every part of your body. But not all probiotics are created equal. Let’s take a look at one we use here in our Probulin digestive probiotics, and why it’s so effective.
Bifidobacterium bifidum (B. bifidum) is a probiotic that occurs naturally in the gut flora, residing in the colon. Supplementing your diet with B. bifidum is associated with a range of health benefits—some localized to the digestive system, and others systemic.
So how does B. Bifidum probiotic bacteria help you?
1. Facilitates Synthesis Of Essential Vitamins
Bifidum assists in the synthesis of B-complex vitamins (niacin, thiamin, and riboflavin), which help grow new cells, fight free radicals, blunt the effects of aging, and boost production of high-density lipoproteins (“good cholesterol”). B. bifidum also assists the body in the manufacture of vitamin K, which is essential in blood clotting and in the prevention of excessive bleeding.
2. Boosts Immunity And Aids Digestion
A naturally occurring form of gut flora, B. bifidum helps maintain a healthy bacterial balance in the intestine and assists in proper digestion and processing of nutrients. By doing so, it discourages histamine production (histamines are the chemicals that cause the physical symptoms experienced during an allergic reaction). It also boosts the body’s natural immune response, helping combat intestinal pathogens.
3. Helps With Diarrhea
Diarrhea is often the results of an imbalance in intestinal flora. It can be caused by an invading pathogen or by use of antibiotics that kill the good bacteria along with the bad. Supplementation with B. bifidum may support bacterial balance and thus reduces stool frequency and intestinal cramping.
B.bfidum has been shown to have a positive supporting effects on skin health among many other amazing ways it can support your health. In other words, you really can’t beat it. It’s truly one of the most effective probiotics available!
