Organism Overview

Bifidobacterium animalis ssp. animalis is an anaerobic member of the LAB (lactic acid bacteria) family and is classified commercially as a probiotic.

This organism is found in the digestive tract of many mammals including humans, dogs, and calves – and

is plentifully found in newborn mammals when various Bifidobacteria are acquired by the newborn from its mother.

In various laboratory studies, B. animalis has been shown to exhibit clinically relevant traits including immune modulation, epithelial adherence (the membrane-like substance made of cells that surrounds internal organs), and enhancement of gut barrier function.
