Bifidobacterium is a well-studied genus of beneficial bacteria that naturally inhabits the human gut. There are many species of bifidobacteria, and, like all probiotics, their health benefits are strain-specific. Bifidobacterium longum is a species of bacteria commonly found in the human intestine.
Morinaga BB536 is a proprietary room-temperature stable strain of Bifidobacterium longum. It is one of the world’s most researched and effective probiotic strains, supported by over 40 published human clinical studies, and Japan’s top-selling probiotic. Levels of Bifidobacterium decline with age, making supplementation wise.
Morinaga BB536 owes its efficacy to the fact that it increases levels of bifidobacteria in the human gut — and that it is stable enough to reach the intestines alive. It has been shown to support a healthy immune system and provide a natural defense against digestive problems such as:
- Occasional constipation*
- Occasional loose stool*
- Abdominal discomfort*
- Gas and bloating*
Mechanism of Action
Numerous studies, including double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trials, have shown that Morinaga BB536 supports digestive health and comfort by significantly:
- Supporting a healthy balance of bacteria in the gastro-intestinal tract*
- Increasing short chain fatty acids*
