Vibe Probiotics have the right mix of thirteen different strains of probiotics, but how exactly does each strain benefit the human body? Vibe features three different species of probiotic strains within each bottle, Bifidobactera, Lactobacilli and Streptococci. Today, we will start looking at the Bifidobacteria genus. This species of bacteria is extremely important for infants, youth and the elderly. As we age, the number of this species of bacteria begin to decline. Bifidobacteria belong to the lactic acid group of bacteria that discourages growth of the bad types of bacteria.
Vibe’s first ingredient, is the probiotic strand Bifidobacterium bifidum, which is one of the first types of bacteria that colonizes in infants and continues to be important over one’s lifetime. It is the most common type of bacteria in your body and it is also extremely susceptible to being destroyed by pharmaceutical antibiotics. It adheres to the intestinal mucosa better than any other bacteria and is able to stop the growth of bacteria, molds, as well as yeasts. Not only is this probiotic strain great for promoting bacterial balance, but it is beneficial in overall digestion and nutrient absorption. Bifidum assists in the breakdown of complex carbohydrates, fat and proteins during digestion. It also produces enzymes that break the larger molecules down into smaller components that the body can more efficiently use. Lastly, a double blind meta-analysis of this strain found it to be helpful in treating acute diarrhea, especially when it was related to travel.
It’s crazy how beneficial just one strain of probiotics can be and Vibe Probiotics feature twelve additional strains! Be sure to check back for our next blog, where we will be continuing our journey through Bifidobacteria benefits with our next ingredient, Bifidobacterium Breve!
