These bacteria produce high doses of lactic acid and contribute to the fermentation of milk during the manufacture of cheese and yogurt.
Bifidobacteria, naturally present in the digestive tract, are essential for the development of the immune system, which originates in the intestine.
Therefore, it is essential to have and maintain sufficient intestinal flora to protect the body against external infections.
Microorganisms called probiotics contain large amounts of bifidobacteria.
They are grown in laboratories, are in capsule form and can be used in cures.
Certain poorly tolerated foods, such as dairy products or gluten, as well as the prolonged use of antibiotics can partially destroy the intestinal flora.
It is important to help you regenerate, whether you are eating yogurt or taking probiotics.
Properties of Bifidobacterium Lactis
Far from causing lactose intolerance, bifidobacteria tend to promote digestion in adults who do not produce intestinal lactase.
Bifidobacterium lactis is believed to have a positive effect on newborns by stimulating their growth, reducing atopic eczema and rotavirus diarrhea.
In cosmetics, bifidobacteria is used to combat damage caused by UV rays.
