Bifidobacteria

Live organisms present in the digestive tract which are responsible for the breakdown of foodstuffs. These organisms are a blessing in disguise. We cannot physically tell they are there, but they are greatly responsible for the amount of nutrients we can absorb from the food we eat. These organisms contribute to overall digestive health which is also responsible for approximately 70% of our immune system function.
