Bifidobacterium Bifidum

Bifidobacterium bifidum is among the first bacteria to occupy the intestinal walls of infants and continues to do so throughout life. It is one of the major groups of bacteria in the entire colon and in the small intestine and helps to create balanced intestinal bacteria and prevent the growth of unwanted bacteria, fungi and yeast by attaching to the intestinal lining more effectively than strains of pathogenic bacteria. The role of the B. bifidum is also to help break down digestible carbohydrates, fats and proteins, support the whole digestive function, aiding the absorption of nutrients and helping to reduce diarrhoea.
