Human-Residential Bifidobacteria: From human to human wellbeing – podcast

Found within the a range of ecological niches, bifidobacteria represents a genus within the phylum Actinobacteria, which is one of the major phyla in the healthy intestinal tract of humans. Bifidobacteria are among the first microbes to colonise the gut and are being purported as beneficial for human health. Several research studies have reported that lower abundance of bifidobacteria in the gut precedes disease development, including gut disorders, allergy, obesity and mental disorders.

Charlotte Bastiaanse, associate editor at Vitafoods Insights, talks to Dr Chyn Boon Wong, research associate at Morinaga Milk Industry Co., about Human Residential Bifidobacteria (HRB) and its role in driving wellbeing. We delve into the concept of achieving human health from the inside out and explore the commercially available HRB probiotic strains.
