Bifido bacteria is the primary beneficial bacteria in the colon, having the most profound effect on the immune system. In infants, bifidobacteria constitutes up to 90% of all intestinal bacteria, however these amounts decline as we age to only make up 3-6% of adult fecal flora.
This Bifido-based Probiotic provides a high concentration of multispecies beneficial bacteria. This provides targeted support designed to be utilized at the appropriate colonization sites in the gut to promote healthy immune, brain and digestive function.
Provides 45 billion CFUs in 8 strains of beneficial bacteria
Multiple strains of probiotics are preferable because each strain has a purpose. Each one thrives in a different part of the digestive tract and works in a different way. The beneficial bacteria in Bifidus 45B undergo a freeze-drying process that provides two main benefits:
• These live probiotics are protected from the harsh acid environment of the stomach and are therefore able to colonize at the most appropriate absorption site in the full length of the gastrointestinal tract.
• The process allows Bifidus 45B to be stored at room temperature without the need for refrigeration.
Robust support for a healthy gut immune response
Probiotics populate the gut with beneficial bacteria, which support the body’s ability to efficiently digest food, improve nutrient absorption and promote toxin elimination.
Additionally, about 80% of the immune system resides in the gastrointestinal tract in the form of receptor cells. Because of this prime location, what happens in the gut profoundly influences immune function, making the balance between “good” and “bad” bacteria of paramount importance.
A healthy gut possesses a large, thriving population of beneficial or friendly bacteria, or probiotics, that support immune system receptor cells. They help form a protective barrier within the colon and intestines. Probiotics support immune function by preventing the build-up of harmful microorganisms, which can lead to health compromise and a weaker immune function. This protective barrier also provides defense against toxicity and plays an important role in immune responses, making the gut a significant factor in maintaining a healthy immune system.
Promotes vibrant brain function through healthy neurohormone balance
There is a definite connection between the brain and gut; studies show that physical, emotional or environmental stress can unquestionably have an effect on gastric discomfort, causing noticeable physical indicators that manifest around the digestive tract. The gut is extremely responsive to stress because it is highly sensitive and full of nerves, just like the brain.
The microbes in the gut produce neuroactive compounds that connect to the brain, affecting behavior and mood. There are more than 100 million neurons in our guts—nerve cells—which are normally perceived as brain cells. In fact, the gut is sometimes called the little brain – it’s the largest area of nerves outside the brain.
