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.
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.

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.
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:
