Bifidobacterium longum 30 capsules (3 billion CFU/capsule)


The use of Bifidobacterium longum probiotics in the treatment of chronic constipation, has shown favourable effects when combined with fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) in weight loss interventions1, enhancing stool frequency, and reducing abdominal pain in patients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) 2. Studies have shown that B. longum assists in repopulating the intestinal microbiota3, especially after a course of medication4 that eradicates the bacterial overgrowth. Combining B. longum with FOS has shown positive biochemical and neuropsychological results5  have also been seen with patients suffering from Minimal Hepatic Encephalopathy (MHE), and increases the Bifidobacteria population6 in permanent vegetative status (PVS) patients.
