Aside from making our products taste and stay good, the bacteria are great for your health too. Most bacteria are good for the gut, but some are very good – these are called probiotic bacteria. We use a number of different strains, but one in particular is very special – Bifidobacterium anim. s. lactis BB-12® (BB-12®).
We use a probiotic called BB-12®. With more than 400 scientific publications, this probiotic strain is the world’s most documented probiotic Bifidobacterium. BB-12® has demonstrated various scientific mechanisms that have linked this specific strain to a number of health benefits related to gastrointestinal health and immune function.
BB-12® has been scientifically studied for its effects on the immune system. In terms of immune function, BB-12® has been shown to increase the body’s resistance to common respiratory infections and reduce the incidence of acute respiratory tract infections.
