From WikiMD's free health, diet & wellness encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A probiotic containing the anaerobic, butyric acid-forming Gram-positive bacterium Clostridium butyricum (C. butyricum), with potential immunomodulatory activity. Upon oral administration of C. butyricum-containing probiotic, C. butyricum modulates the composition of the normal gastrointestinal (GI) microflora and help maintain adequate colonization of the GI tract, thereby improving digestion and preventing GI disturbances. This bacterium creates an environment unfavorable to pathogens by adhering to human epithelial cells, thereby forming a protective mucosal barrier. This prevents attachment of pathogens and reduces the risk of infection. Dietary supplementation with this bacterium may restore or enhance intestinal immunity.
