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.
