Bifidobacterium, Bifidobacterium

Bifidobacterium is a genre of anaerobic bacteria that work as probiotic and are widely present in stomach and intestines. They form the main group that build up the organism’s microbiome in the colon and promote a lot of health benefits, Bifidobacterium are consumed via some foods such as yogurt and kombucha.

What are Bifidobacterium benefits?

One of the largest bacterial groups in the intestinal microbiota (or flora) is the bifidobacterium. They have this scientific name and aggregate hundreds of different species in the human body, some of which have beneficial functions to health, and are therefore considered probiotics. They have benefits for immunity, combat tumor growth, and also act to control digestion. The intestinal microbiota of every human being is a complex ecosystem formed by bacteria, fungi, and other substances; because of its importance, it is necessary to monitor the nutrients required for the proper functioning of this area of the body.

Gut Health Bifidobacterium and Gut Health

Gut health is directly linked to our habits, such as unregulated sleep, poor diet, and little physical activity. Keeping our digestive system in order is taking care of our entire organism, because scientists have discovered that there is a connection between the peripheral nervous system (categorized by nerves and neurons outside the central nervous system) and the enteric nervous system (which controls digestion). Our gut has 100 million neurons, and 70-80% of the body's immune cells live there. In addition, gut health is linked to our mood through its conversion of tryptophan into serotonin.
  • Intestinal Flora

    The intestinal flora or intestinal microbiota is a group of bacteria that live in the intestine. Even though they are bacteria, these microorganisms are beneficial to the body in a mutual relationship, as the bacteria consume the nutrients in the area to reproduce while helping in the digestion of food. Although this is a natural community in the body, it is not always that this relationship is in balance, so some interventions may be necessary for the intestinal flora to function properly. This rebalancing can come through food supplementation, as a way to optimize the intake of ingredients that can help the development of this system.

Immunity Bifidobacterium and Immunity

The immune system is made up of cells, tissues and organs that act in the organism's defense against the harmful effects of external microorganisms. The supplements indicated for immunity act as strengthening agents of this system, increasing the antibodies production and, consequently, its defense activity.
  • Immune Booster

    The immune system is responsible for defense against infectious agents, and is composed of leukocytes, macrophages, and lymphocytes. When immunity levels are low, the body is more likely to become infected with viruses, bacteria, and others. People who are easily infected can have low immunity for various reasons, such as family history diseases, poor diet, or absorption difficulties in some body function. Maintaining the intake of substances that strengthen immunity is to prevent diseases and prepare the body for any possible infection. To do this, it is important to turn your attention to what is ingested, exercise habits, and supplementation.
