Possible Benefits

    In a study published by the World Journal of Gastroenterology titled: “Bifidobacterium lactis attenuates onset of inflammation in a murine model of colitis,” the authors concluded that daily oral administration of B. lactis was able to reduce inflammatory and T cells mediators and to promote regulatory T cells specific markers in a mouse model of colitis.

    There is also another study by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health titled “Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis fermented milk product reduces inflammation by altering a niche for colitogenic microbes.”
