ProbioBalance by Aliness® Bifidobacterium Balance is a dietary supplement with 5 selected bacterial strains of the Bifidobacterium genus, prebiotic (Fibregum™ Bio LAW Polysaccharide) and English plantain extract. One capsule contains 10 billion of microencapsulated bacteria. The packaging comprises 30 vegan capsules in a bottle made of violet glass, which protects them from sunlight, thereby extending the supplement’s shelf-life.
Patented manufacturing technology
The formulation has been developed using an innovative, patented microencapsulation technology in which each bacterial cell is enveloped by a lipid bilayer. This enables almost 100% bacteria to survive in an acidic environment of the stomach and reach its destination – the intestines – intact and maximises their colonisation rate.
Health benefits of Lactobacillus bacteria
Rod-shaped lactic acid bacteria of the genus Bifidobacterium reside naturally in the human digestive tract. They predominate in the microbiota of a healthy body (along with Lactobacillus bacteria). The presence of these bacteria in the intestines protects against excessive proliferation of pathogens (e.g. E.coli and Salmonella) by preventing their adhesion to the surface of intestinal epithelium, producing compounds which inhibit their growth, namely lantibiotics, and strengthening the intestinal barrier. It is believed that supplementing with Bifidobacterium bacteria may be an important element in the prevention and treatment of many digestive diseases.
Probiotic bacteria make up only 8 of 29 species of the genus Bifidobacterium. They have far-reaching, scientifically proven effects on human health. Colonising the intestinal mucosa with these beneficial bacteria helps maintain intestinal balance. This has such health benefits as immunostimulation, a decrease in cholesterol levels, relief from symptoms of lactose intolerance and allergies, improved digestive processes and intestinal motility and even protection against xenobiotics from food!
Probiotic bacteria of the genus Bifidobacterium has a vital role in the treatment and prophylaxis of diarrhoea (including traveller’s diarrhoea), irritable bowel syndrome and atopic dermatitis. What is more, there are studies on the role of these bacteria in preventing depression. Species of this genus show also the ability to synthesise some B vitamins – vitamin B1, B6, B12, folic acid and nicotinic acid.
Natural sources of dietary fibre
Fibregum™ Polysaccharide is soluble acacia fibre, functioning as a prebiotic. Fibre is not digested and absorbed in the digestive tract, but it is fermented by bacteria in the large colon. Fermentation leads to the formation of essential compounds which function as an energy source for the intestinal microbiota, regulate intestinal function and stimulate the immune system. In terms of structure, Fibregum™ is a large polysaccharide and that is why it is fermented quite slowly. Because of that, unlike the popular inulin, it does not cause digestive discomfort.
English plantain (Plantago lanceolata) is a perennial plant whose raw material is a leaf, containing iridoid glycosides, water-soluble mucilaginous polysaccharides, flavonoids and silicon compounds. The English plantain leaf extract exerts anti-inflammatory effects on the digestive tract and immunostimulant and antibacterial effects on pathogenic microorganisms. It reduces irritation and congestion of muscous membranes, thereby promoting their regeneration.
To sum up, ProbioBalance by Aliness® Bifidobacterium Balance is a high-quality formulation which helps normalise the intestinal microbiota, improves gastrointestinal motility and stimulates metabolism. The supplement is recommended to prevent and treat diarrhoea, relieve symptoms of allergies and food intolerances, boost immunity and for digestive problems (constipation and bloating) and a diet deficient in fermented milk products.
The supplement should not be taken with hot meals.
After using the product, you can keep the packaging and use it to store seeds or herbs. A bottle made of violet glass protects its contents from sunlight and thus extends their shelf-life.

Plantain (Plantago lanceolata), a plant of temperate climate in the northern hemisphere, common in Poland. Its raw medical materials are the leaves of plantain (Folium Plantaginis}, including: enzymes (invert sugar, emulsin), flavonoids, tannins, iridoid glycosides, pectin, minerals (soluble silica, zinc), saponin triterpenes, mucus and vitamins (C, K) . It has a wide medicinal use because it has a protecting and coating effect, it is expectorant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, diuretic, stimulates gastric juices, antidiarrhoeal, in addition applied externally it accelerates wound healing (e.g. by applying a fresh plantain leaves directly on the wound) and regeneration of the epidermis, used also in conjunctivitis inflammation.
What is Bifidobacterium breve?
Bifidobacterium breve is a bacterium naturally residing in the large intestine whose presence and functions have a positive effect on digestion, nutrient absorption and the overall human health. It belongs to nonspore-forming gram-positive bacteria. It is extremely resistant to gastric juices present in different parts of the digestive tract and reach the adhesion site in an adequate amount. It has been demonstrated to have a particular affinity to HT-29 cell line in the intestines.
By producing organic acids and lactic acid, it reduces the alkalinity of the intestines, hereby inducing adverse effects for the development of such pathogens as Clostridium difficile, Helicobacter pylori, E.coli and Candida. Owing to that, it reduces digestive ailments associated with bacterial infection and caused by antibiotherapy. In addition, it has a positive impact in the treatment of candidiasis.
The strains of the genus Bifidobacterium have been detected in breast milk. Owing to that, after passing through the infant’s digestive tract, it shows many benefits to its healthy development. It has an indirect impact on individuals with depression, boosts focus and concentration.
Bifidobacterium breve is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Bifidobacterium bifidum – what is it?
Bifidobacterium bifidum is a Gram-positive bacteria strain of the Bifidobacterium genus. It is non-motile, anaerobic and rod-shaped. In the human body system, it is present mainly in the large intestine, but also in the final parts of the small intestine, vagina and mother’s milk. It is one of the most commonly used strains in probiotic preparations.
The benefits of the use of probiotics containing this bacterium include smaller risk of diarrhoea, induced both by infections and antibiotics, as well as lower risk of infections caused by Escherichia Coli bacteria. It can be also helpful in restoring bacterial homeostasis in vagina. Bifidobacterium bifidum can contribute to better nutrition of the whole organism, because of its ability to produce particular vitamins from B and K groups. It can be also helpful in regulation of respiratory system functions, thanks to the reduction in histamine production and improvement in antibodies response.
Bifidobacterium bifidum contained in many complex probiotic preparations which can be found in the offer of muscle-zone.pl
Bifidobacterium infantis – what is it?
Bifidobacterium infantis is a lactic acid bacterium present in the digestive system. It is an anaerobic bacterium, which can convert carbohydrates into lactic acid.
Bacterium is beneficial for people struggling with irritable bowel syndrome, as it reduces bloating and gas, the risk of diarrhoea and abdominal pain. B. infantis can reduce inflammations associated with particular diseases, such as psoriasis, colitis ulcerosa or chronic fatigue syndrome. What is interesting, it can quickly strengthen the intestinal barrier. Thanks to that, it contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system. It will be also helpful in case of intestinal dysbiosis, as it can fight harmful bacteria, by producing factors which will cause their death and competing over receptors in the intestinal lining to which it could attach.
What is Bifidobacterium longum?
Bifidobacterium longum is one of the most understood strains of probiotic bacteria naturally populating the human body. Like other bacteria of this kind, it promotes the digestion of lactose and other nutrients. Consequently, it helps absorb properly vitamins and nutrients in specific parts of the digestive tract.
Bifidobacterium longum supports the functioning of the immune system and inhibits the development of pathogens, in particular residing in the female vagina, by synthesising lactic acid, lysozyme and other acidic substances. It contributes to reducing inflammations and lowers cortisol levels. It has also the ability to produce B vitamins.
It is used in medicine in treating disorders of gastrointestinal disorders, such as nausea, constipation and diarrhoea. Due to the presence of this health-promoting strain in breast milk, the supplementation is recommended for gaining the best advantages to child development and health.
This bacteria strain is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
