Bifidobacterium longum, a probiotic strain

Our supplement, Bifidobacterium longum, is a concentrate of probiotics. These are living microorganisms which are beneficial for the body when consumed in sufficient quantities. Our dietary supplement is formulated from a specific probiotic strain: Bifidobacterium longum BB536. Identified in 1977, it is one of the best-known and most widely-studied probiotic strains in the world. Many studies have confirmed its health benefits for both the immune and digestive systems.

The importance of probiotics for gut flora

Probiotics are primarily associated with maintaining the balance of gut flora. Also known as intestinal microbiota, gut flora comprises more than a hundred species of bacteria which can either be beneficial, neutral or harmful. Though maintaining a good balance between these different bacteria is vital in order to prevent health issues such as digestive problems, this can be a challenge. Gut flora can be subject to multiple attacks, primarily when we take medicines, drink alcohol or find ourselves in situations of stress. As these various factors disrupt our intestinal microbiota, our bodies’ general well-being is gradually compromised. Probiotics maintain or restore equilibrium in gut flora, reducing or counteracting these harmful effects. By providing an optimal intake of probiotics, the strain Bifidobacterium longum BB536 thus helps prevent disorders such as gastrointestinal infections including diarrhoea and colitis.

Positive effects on the immune system

As well as helping to maintain balanced gut flora, this bifidobacterium strain acts as as an effective microbial barrier against infections. A number of studies have shown that Bifidobacterium longum BB536:

  • increases general resistance to infection;
  • has an immune-stimulant effect which manifests as production of specific and non-specific antibodies;
  • leads to increased production of IgA antibodies, helping to increase resistance to infection by Escherichia coli ;
  • significantly reduces symptoms of certain pollen allergies.

Provides 2 billion microorganisms per capsule

The many benefits of the strain Bifidobacterium longum BB536 can be obtained by taking our supplement which is formulated in DR Caps™ for optimal absorption and bioavailability. Each capsule provides almost 2 billion microorganisms, with the recommended dose of three capsules a day delivering an exceptional 6 billion microorganisms. This dose can be adapted according to your needs and the advice of your therapist. These probiotics should be refrigerated in order to preserve their quality. Their efficacy can be enhanced by also taking prebiotics such as fructo-oligosaccharides which promote probiotic growth.
