Bifidobacterium Bifidum

A brilliant bacteria bringing benefits to our bodies.


It’s not easy to say Bifidobacterium Bifidum three times fast, but it is easy to see why this
beneficial strain of bacteria is so important for a healthy gut flora!
Bifidobacterium Bifidum, or B. Bifidum is one of many bacterial strains that occur
naturally in the gut flora, found primarily in the colon. It can also be present in the mouth,
vagina and in breast milk. Bifidobacteria belong to a group of bacteria called lactic acid
bacteria which are found in fermented foods like yogurt, cheese and sauerkraut.

The human body counts on its normal bacteria to perform several jobs, including breaking
down foods, helping the body take in nutrients, and preventing the take-over of “bad”
bacteria. B. Bifidum specifically provides us with a number of health benefits, including
Vitamin Synthesis. It aids in the synthesis of B-Complex vitamins and Vitamin K in the
intestines. This synthesis protects the body from deficiencies of these vitally important
nutrients. Vitamin K is important for regulating the blood clotting process, as well as
improves bone health and prevents bone fractures, while B-complex vitamins are essential
for energy production, producing red blood cells, stress reduction among many other benefits.

Additionally, B. Bifidum, when taken regularly, helps our bodies to ward off intestinal
pathogens as it boosts immunity. It is also helps with a variety of digestive issues and is
effective in treating both infectious diarrhea and diarrhea from antibiotic use.  Adding
B. Bifidum back to the diet after antibiotic therapy, can help restore bowel flora along
with other beneficial bacteria after these important bacteria have been compromised.

And just when you began to wonder, “What else can this bacteria do?”, there is more!
B. Bifidum discourages the production of histamines which trigger allergic reactions.
Over alcohol consumption can also deplete these important bacteria, and adding these
back to one’s diet can help restore damage to the liver. B. Bifidum is one of the essential
bacterial strains found in Body Biotics TM SBO Probiotic/Prebiotic ConsortiaTM. This
bacteria is just one of the players in this powerful probiotic formula.

Learn more about another strain in next week’s blog…B. Licheniformis.

Until then, healthiest wishes!
