Bifidobacterium Lactis


This strain of bacteria helps reduce symptoms associated with Celiac Disease, improve gastric motility in adults, decrease the functional GI symptoms in adults and increases immune system support in the elderly.

Bifidobacterium Lactis is normal flora that is found throughout the colon, mouth and vagina. 

Research links this bacteria with aiding in the protection of gastrointestinal cells from acute inflammation due to pathogens[1], and prevents celiac-toxin gliadin and can be used as a dietary supplement for patients with Celiac disease[2]. In addition, this bacteria aids in improving gastric motility that occur in adults[3], and aids in GI protection by increasing immune system support, especially in the elderly[4]
