Bifidus Balance + FOS from Jarrow Formulas is a dietary supplement containing in its composition the complex of bacterial strains from the group of bifidobacterium, enriched in prebiotics. In one capsule there are 5 billion live organisms.
The supplement will work well as a means universally supporting general state of health. It strengthens defense functions of the organism, supports digestive processes and alleviates the symptoms of the digestive system. The product is also recommended to rebuild physiological intestinal microflora after antibiotic therapy. Moreover, it was enriched in an additive of prebiotics, which constitute feedstuff for probiotic bacteria, thanks to which they may develop and grow in the digestive system.
Bifidum Balance + FOS from Jarrow Formulas contains in its composition the following probiotic strains:
Bifidobacterium breve – a probiotic strain recommended especially in recurring constipations and diarrheas in children and adults. It alleviates the symptoms of irritable bowel system (IBS) and ulcerative colitis, i.e. abdominal discomfort, bloated stomach, constipation. It mitigates the symptoms and shortens the time of diarrheas, especially among infants.
The most recent research proves that b.breve is helpful in the treatment of asthma, acne among adolescents and adults as well as obesity.
Bifidobacterium bifidum – anaerobic bacteria occurring in the largest amounts in the large intestine, small intestine and vagina. It demonstrates strong antibacterial and antifungal properties – it decreases the development of pathogens, i.e. E.coli or Salmonella and supports the therapy against Candida albicans.
Thanks to its presence in the vagina, it restores its proper pH, preventing recurring bacterial and viral infections. It increases the absorption of nutrients from food, therefore it is recommended to people after antibiotic therapy and those who follow restrictive reducing diets. It also takes part in the production of B-group vitamins and vitamin K.
Due to the considerable improvement of intestinal microbiota, it influences strengthening the functions of the immune system. It strengthens natural defense mechanisms, increasing the level of lymphocytes T and NK cells, which protect the organism from various infections.
Bifidobacterium longum – a gram-positive bacterium colonizing the digestive system. It demonstrates strong effect inhibiting the development of harmful pathogens. This strain, especially helpful for people suffering from IBS – irritable bowel syndrome, considerably alleviates the symptoms of diarrhea and bloating and improves the quality of life of patients. It belongs to the group of psychobiotics – the bacteria influencing gut-brain axis and demonstrating positive influence on well-being and mood. B.longum decreases the level of cortisol and other hormones the level of which is increased during stress reactions.
Bifidobacterium lactis – probiotic bacteria in the large intestine. Thanks to strong properties restoring physiological intestinal microflora, it takes care of the proper functioning of the immune system. Thanks to increased immunity, the organism deals better with the protection from bacteria, parasites and viruses and the risk of developing autoimmune diseases.
Additionally, it decreases typical symptoms of food intolerance and allergies in the digestive system. It alleviates and shortens the time of diarrheas and participates in the production of B-group vitamins.
It demonstrates the activity regulating glycemic balance – it increases sensitivity of tissues to the effect of insulin, decreasing at the same time the concentration of glucose, glycated hemoglobin, insulin and CRP – C-reactive protein, being indicative of the inflammation in the organism.
Inulin – belongs to the group of prebiotics, i.e. a substance stimulating the development and growth of positive bacteria in the digestive system. Prebiotics are not digested, therefore they are great feedstuff for existing probiotics and they may develop thanks to them.
To sum up, Bifidum Balance + FOS from Jarrow Formulas is a dietary supplement supporting digestive processes in the organism and positively influencing proper functioning of the immune system. It works well in case of antibiotic therapy, as it restores proper microbiota.
In case of multi-strain probiotics in the first days of application typical ailments of the digestive system may occur, related to nesting of new intestinal microflora, i.e. bloating, diarrhea, stomachache. These symptoms should subside after a few days.

Maltodextrin, tapioca starch, magnesium stearate (vegetable source), calcium phosphate and vitamin C (antioxidant). Capsule consists of hydroxypropylmethylcellulose.
Inulin (dietary fibre soluble in water) belonging to the polysaccharides, present in the natural state in plant tissues storing energy relationship, which affect on the development of intestinal microflora (I.e. Probiotic) and the condition of the gastrointestinal tract and digestive organs (intestines). It has a high bioavailability of minerals (including calcium and magnesium), reduces the growth rate of glucose after meals. Inulin, is not digested by the human body, but it is degraded into short chain fatty acids by lactic acid bacteria growing in the intestines. In the dietary supplementation it is used as insoluble dietary fibre supporting high-protein diets, for example, during weight loss.
FOS (fructooligosaccharides) refers to the plant (fibre) branched glucose polymers, insensitive to digestion, resulting in the stimulation of activity and development of the intestinal microflora, the proper functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, studies have shown anti-tumor potential. They are used in medicine and for the prophylaxis of digestive tact diseases, effect on the reduction of body fat mass by a sense of fullness (in combination with probiotics form synbiotics) and improve glucose metabolism. They are a component of protein, carbohydrate and protein and carbohydrate and slimming supplements.
Dosage: varied from a few hundred mg to several grams per day.
