Bifidobacterium Bifidum: Top Health Benefits for a Healthy Lifestyle

What Is Bifidobacterium Bifidum?

As you may already know, your large intestine is an ecosystem. It’s densely populated with various bacteria and a multitude of microbes. In fact, within the colon’s lumen (or tunnels), it is said that hundreds of species of bacteria exist. It’s estimated that there are several hundred grams of intestinal microbiota in your large intestine — some can be good, and some can be harmful.1

Bifidobacterium bifidum is just one strain of the good-for-you bacteria that are naturally present in your colon. In fact, they can represent up to 25% of your fecal bacteria.2 It’s important to feed and replenish the good bacteria to outnumber the bad bacteria.

History of Bifidobacterium Bifidum

French scientist Henry Tissier was among the first to administer probiotic bacteria to children and adults in an effort to help them support their gastrointestinal health. In the 1940s, Tissier discovered bifidobacteria in the fecal matter of infants. He isolated a specific type of bacterium with a strange Y shape and called it Bacillus bifidum.

Then, in 1957, scientists realized there were other bifidobacteria, so they suggested a differentiation scheme based on the bacteria’s carbohydrate fermentation patterns. In 1963, researchers recognized and named seven other species of Bifidobacterium, in addition to Bifidobacterium bifidum.

Potential Health Benefits Of Bifidobacterium Bifidum

Now, regular uses of bifidobacterium bifidum are generally recognized as safe. Bifidobacteria may help support more comfortable digestion and a healthier gut.5,6,7,8†
