Alflorex® is a food supplement, with the unique and well documented Bifidobacterium longum 35624® strain. It is used to increase the amount of bifidobacteria in the gut, for example during a low FODMAP diet.
Alflorex, with the bacterial strain B. longum 35624® (formerly known as B. infantis 35624®) was discovered and developed by Precision Biotics in collaboration with researchers and clinicians from one of the world’s leading centers for microbiome research. There are many different Bifidobacterium longum strains, but 35624® is a completely unique strain with unique properties. The live bacterial strain in Alflorex is transported through the digestive system and reaches the intestine as live bacteria. This naturally occurring “good” bacteria is part of the Bifidobacteria family, which lives naturally in the human gut and is passed from mother to child at birth.
Alflorex is practical and easy to use:
- Just one capsule per day, at any time, with or without food.
- Does not require cold storage.
- Also suitable for people following a vegetarian, halal, kosher or FODMAP diet.
