In the human body, the flora is a relatively important existence, especially some beneficial bacteria, which have a great role in promoting the health of the human body. Bifidobacterium lactis is one of them.Bifidobacterium lactis has many functions, such as treating chronic diarrhea, relieving constipation, inhibiting cancer, and protecting the liver. we will introduce you to the relevant knowledge of Bifidobacterium lactis!
1. Treatment of chronic diarrhea and antibiotic-associated diarrhea
Bifidobacteria have the function of regulating the intestinal flora.Clinical observation of patients with chronic diarrhea by using bifidobacteria showed that after two weeks of taking the drug, the number and shape of stools were abnormal, and the clinical symptoms disappeared. The total effective rate was 90.3%, and the recurrence rate was low.Many domestic hospitals have used bifidobacteria as the drug of choice for the treatment of chronic diarrhea. In addition, bifidobacteria can also treat antibiotic-associated diarrheal diseases caused by excessive use of antibiotics. Some people used Bifidobacterium preparation to treat 380 cases of pseudomembranous colitis. There was no significant difference in the total clinical cure rate, but the clinical side effects and recurrence rate were significantly reduced. Bifidobacteria have a good therapeutic effect on acute and chronic diarrhea in children.
2.Effectively relieve constipation
Constipation refers to the reduction in the number of bowel movements or the difficulty in drying stools (generally no defecation for more than two days). Bifidobacteria can alleviate the symptoms of constipation by regulating intestinal flora and inhibiting the growth of intestinal spoilage bacteria and the formation of toxic metabolites by producing short-chain fatty acids such as acetic acid and lactic acid, thereby stimulating intestinal peristalsis.
3.Inhibit the occurrence and development of cancer
Bifidobacterium cells are able to adsorb carcinogenic and mutagenic substances in food, thereby protecting the body cells from damage by these carcinogens. Bifidobacteria can reduce the growth of many intestinal bacteria by regulating the normal intestinal flora and inhibiting the growth of many spoilage bacteria in the intestine. In addition, studies have also found that bifidobacteria can activate the phagocytic activity of macrophages and help inhibit tumor cells; bifidobacteria can also inhibit tumor growth by inducing apoptosis of tumor cells.
Harmful bacteria in the human intestine produce and release endotoxin into the bloodstream, causing damage to the liver. The Bifidobacterium preparation can inhibit the number of harmful bacteria producing endotoxin, and thus has a good therapeutic effect on liver patients. Domestic hospitals used Bifidobacterium preparations to treat 365 patients with chronic hepatitis for 8 weeks, and found that patients with liver function improved significantly.
5.Promote the body's digestion of lactose
Milk is rich in nutrients. However, a considerable part of Chinese people lack lactase and cannot decompose lactose in milk. These people often have gastrointestinal disorders after drinking milk, leading to gastrointestinal spasm, flatulence or diarrhea, which is lactose intolerance. By fermenting cow's milk with lactic acid bacteria such as Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Streptococcus thermophilus and Bifidobacterium, fermented yogurt is prepared, which can effectively alleviate lactose intolerance.
