B. Bifidum is by far the most common probiotic bacteria in your body. The probiotic is found in the colon, the lower small intestine and in breast milk. Bifidobacterium Bifidum is often found in healthy vaginas.
B. Bifidum directly competes with Candida & yeast overgrowths in our bodies. Candida infections are commonly associated with low concentrations of B. Bifidum.
Research has shown that Bifidobacterium Bifidum produces natural antibiotic substances that kill bad bacteria. B. bifidum is also extremely susceptible to being killed by pharmaceutical antibiotics.
