Bifidobacterium Bifidum


This strain of bacteria helps treat Eczemacommon cold symptoms, repairs liver damage, prevents cancer, increases vitamin K levels, and promotes energy production and development

Bifidobacterium Bifidum is normal flora of the digestive tract (mostly colon), and of the vagina.

Research links this bacteria with maintaining flora balance within the intestines by controlling detrimental bacteria[1], strengthening the immune system in individuals with allergies in which it increases antibodies IgG, IgM and IgA and discourages the production of histamine[2], and aiding in the digestive process[1] This bacteria also reduces inflammation and irritation in patients with eczema[4], aids in the synthesis of B-complex vitamins, ultimately increasing energy production, and promoting normal growth and development, and helps metabolizes protein and carbohydrates. In addition, this bacteria also maintains nervous system function, aids in the creation of red blood cells[5], aids in the synthesis of Vitamin K by regulating the blood clotting process[6], assists in the repair of alcohol induced liver injury[7], aids in the protection from activities within the body that cause the growth and transformation of healthy cells into cancer cells[8], and lowers severity of symptoms and amount of days associate with the common cold[9].
