What is Bifidobacterium longum?
Bifidobacterium longum is one of the most understood strains of probiotic bacteria naturally populating the human body. Like other bacteria of this kind, it promotes the digestion of lactose and other nutrients. Consequently, it helps absorb properly vitamins and nutrients in specific parts of the digestive tract.
Bifidobacterium longum supports the functioning of the immune system and inhibits the development of pathogens, in particular residing in the female vagina, by synthesising lactic acid, lysozyme and other acidic substances. It contributes to reducing inflammations and lowers cortisol levels. It has also the ability to produce B vitamins.
It is used in medicine in treating disorders of gastrointestinal disorders, such as nausea, constipation and diarrhoea. Due to the presence of this health-promoting strain in breast milk, the supplementation is recommended for gaining the best advantages to child development and health.
This bacteria strain is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
