What is Bifidobacterium Bifidum

Bifidobacterium bifidum is a normal resident of healthy infant GI tracts and usually colonizes within four days of life. It has been shown to effectively compete with harmful bacteria, such as E. coli, S. aureus and Campylobacter jejuni, which suggests B. bifidum’s lactic acid and acetic acid production provides an antagonistic action against pathogens to help maintain microflora balance. A study of 55 infants (5-24 months given either a formula with B. bifidum and S. thermophilus or non-supplemented formula for a course of 17 months) found that those receiving the probiotic formula had less occurrences of loose and watery stools (7% vs. 31%).
