Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 is a probiotic bacterium marketed in the products Align in the US, and PrecisionBiotics Alflorex supplement in the UK. The name 35624 is a registered trademark of Alimentary Health Ltd., a company based in Ireland.
The conditions for which 35624 were studied, however, remained a mystery until now.
Infantis means “of infants”. Based on the information in this ebook, "Bifidobacterium infantis 35624 - Not Just for Babies," you will see that this microbe has the attributes of a probiotic that is not just beneficial for infants, but that is also beneficial for a wide range of age groups. It is “Not Just for Babies.”
Marketing materials for Align say that it is a daily probiotic supplement for "24/7 digestive support." Because Align is a supplement, not a drug, it can only be advertised for structure-function claims. That means that only its general effects on the structure or function of the body can be made. No disease claim can be made. As a result, 35624 is marketed to help with general digestive function, not a particular digestive condition such as constipation, diarrhea, reflux, IBS, etc.
Marketing material for Alflorex say that it survives the GI tract with its beneficial properties intact. What does the research show?
The pages on Align and Alflorex show that some people have great success taking it while others do not. Although this is common with probiotic supplements due to the uniqueness of each individual’s microbiome and lifestyle habits, what I believe is happening with Align and Alflorex is that it is being taken by consumers or recommended by unknowing practitioners for conditions that are not supported by research.
You may be surprised to learn that the main effects of Bifidobacterium infantis
35624, based on the results from research studies, go beyond the
general digestive support that is claimed for Align and may be more than what is perceived for Alflorex.
