BIFIDUS, the guardian angel of digestive health
As residents within the human gut, bifidobacteria
- Relieve constipation by producing acids that stimulate peristalsis and promote normal bowel movements.
- Provide enzymes to breakdown certain polysaccharides including lactose, thus improving lactose intolerance.
- Ferment oligosaccharide to produce various B vitamins including B1, B6, B9, B12, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), biotin, and riboflavin as digestive by-products, which in turn improve amino acid metabolism. In infants, bifidobacteria play a significant role in preventing the loss of nutrients, by suppressing the growth of competing bacteria in the intestinal tract.
- Prevent harmful bacteria species from colonizing the gut by occupying the intestinal wall. They produce acetic and lactic acids as digestive by-products which help to maintain a desirable pH level in the digestive tract. This aids digestion and discourage the growth of many harmful bacteria which cannot thrive in high acid environment. By attaching onto the lining of the intestine, Bifidus bacteria prevent toxin from seeping through the mucous membrane into the bloodstream.
- Inhibit growth of harmful bacteria such as
- E. coli (大肠杆菌),
- Staphylococcus aureus (金黄色葡萄球菌),
- Shigella dysenteriae (志贺氏痢疾杆菌),
- Salmonella typhi (沙门氏菌),
- Proteus ssp. (变形杆菌属), and
- Candida albicans (白色念珠菌).
- Lower the risk of colon cancer by reducing the level of various colonic enzymes, which are used to convert pro-carcinogenic molecules into carcinogens (such as nitrosamines and secondary bile salts).
- Lower the risk of tumor growth and angiogenesis by metabolizing toxin and stimulating immune response.
|PROMOTE GOOD METABOLISM||LOWER RISK OF INFECTION & DISEASE|
|1.Promote regular bowel movement. Less accumulation of toxic waste in the colon. Reduce smelly gas. Promote gastrointestinal hygiene.||6.Fight allergies.|
|2.Provide enzymes to break down certain polysaccharides including lactose. Improve lactose intolerance.||7.Support immune function & increase resistance to infection. Prevent inflammatory bowel disease.|
|3.Produce vitamin K2, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, folic acid and pantothenic acid. Enhance the absorption of minerals and nutrients, including calcium.||8.By attaching to the mucosal lining of the colon, they prevent growth of harmful bacteria and also toxin from seeping through the wall into the blood stream.|
|4.Protect liver. Fewer toxins, less burden on liver.||9.Produce lactic acid and different fatty acids, which lower the pH in the colon, inhibiting the proliferation of harmful bacteria.|
|5.Improve your skin appearance and reduce acne.||10.Metabolize toxin, decrease the formation of carcinogens, thereby reducing risk of tumor.|
