Bifidobacterium Infantis


This strain of bacteria helps reduce symptoms associated with psoriasis and IBS, aids in the metabolism of human milk in infants and supports the immune system.

Bifidobacterium Infantis is normally found in the guts of adults and infants.

Research links this bacteria with helping the inflammatory processes in psoriasis[1]†, aids in relieving many symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome[2]†, promotes a stronger immune system not only in the gut, but extending to systemic immune system[3]†, and can increase treatment outcomes of Helicobacter Pylori[4]†. In addition, this bacteria has been shown to protect the gut through gene expression, aids in preventing necrotizing enterocolitis[5]†, and has digestive enzymes to aid in the metabolism of human milk in infants[6]†.
