For Comprehensive Replacement of the Bifidobacterium Strains
Bifido Complex™Advanced Formula is a new, improved formulation of our Bifido Complex™ that combines five (rather than three strains in Bifido Complex™) of the most predominant strains of the Bifidobacterium family of lactic acid bacteria. These friendly flora are recognized to reside in the mucosal lining of the last part of the small intestine and are the predominant strains found to colonize the large intestine (colon). Bifido Complex™ Advanced Formula provides supplementation of these health promoting friendly flora to support intestinal health and functioning.
This product has been formulated to be inulin free and totally SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) legal. It is also hypoallergenic, specially formulated to be free of milk, casein, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, gelatin, yeast, sugar, starch, artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors, preservatives, salicylates, fish, tree nuts, peanuts and other common allergens. The product is manufactured using the safest and purest ingredients available with special emphasis on the lowest possible levels of heavy metals, pesticides, PCB’s, microbial organisms, yeasts and other environmental impurities. Formulated specially for the sensitive individual, capsule shells are made from plant cellulose (pine) rather than animal gelatin which most capsules are manufactured from.
A healthy gastrointestinal tract contains a balance of “friendly” as well as “unfriendly” strains of bacteria. To maintain good intestinal health, it is important to maintain optimal conditions in the colon. To achieve those optimal conditions, it may be necessary to replenish the good Bifido bacterial strains. There are numerous factors that contribute to and result in these friendly Bifidobacterium strains being destroyed or depleted, which include:
use of Broad-spectrum antibiotics
improper diet or nutrient deficiencies
balance of intestinal flora
exposure to numerous medications
Functions of Bifidobacterium
The Bifidobacterium family of probiotics perform several important functions in the intestinal tract including the production of lactic and acetic acids which increase the acidity of the intestines. A healthy intestinal tract can be supported when there are sufficient quantities of these health-promoting friendly flora residing in the colon.
Bifido Complex™ Advanced Formula delivers a comprehensive blend of Bifidobacterium strains including:
Bifidobacterium bifidum (BB-02) 4.0 billion CFUs
Bifidobacterium lactis (Infantis Bi-07) 4.0 billion CFU’s
Bifidobacterium lactis (BL-04) 3.0 billion CFUs
Bifidobacterium breve (BB-03) 2.0 billion CFU’s
Bifidobacterium longum (BL-05) 2.0 billion CFUs
Total 15.0 billion CFUs
BIFIDOBACTERIUM BIFIDUM (BB-02)
Bifidobacterium bifidum is the most prominent microorganism strain setting up residence and implanting itself in the lining of the large intestine. B. bifidum is known for producing acetic and lactic acids, which lowers the pH (increases the acidity), of the intestine.
BIFIDOBACTERIUM LACTIS (Bi-07)
The B. lactis Bi-07 strain (formerly known as B. infantis) of friendly florahas been referred to as the “infant” or “baby” bacteria because it is the primary resident of the intestinal tract of infants following their birth. B. lactis is known to inhabit the intestines of both infants as well as adults although it is found in smaller quantities during the aging process. It is considered a beneficial probiotic strain that can safely and effectively be supplemented with infants, children and adults.
BIFIDOBACTERIUM LACTIS (BL-04)
B. lactis (Bl-04) is well recognized as a close relative of the B. bifidum and other B. lactis strains of Bifidobacterium. This strain possesses some of the same functions as the related Bifido strains and fiercely competes for attachment sites on the mucosal membrane helping the colonization of the product.
BIFIDOBACTERIUM BREVE (BB-03)
B. breve stimulates colonization of bifido strains in the large intestine, while repressing the colonization of harmful bacteria. It also stimulates the mucosal immune response.
BIFIDOBACTERIUM LONGUM (BL-05)
B. longum is among the first strains to colonize the sterile digestive tract of newborns and predominates in breast-fed infants. Bottle-fed infants have a different micro flora, and this may be related to the higher risk of diarrhea and allergies in these bottle-fed babies. Therefore adding B. longum can help the digestive system to operate smoothly, blocking the growth of harmful bacteria and stimulating the immune system.
