Bifidus Regularis: Probiotic for Regularity?

Bifidus Regularis sounds like a very official scientific microbe. Actually, it's Dannon's creative trademarked name for a probiotic bacteria in its Activia yogurts scientifically known as B. animalis subsp. lactis strain DN-173010, or as some people call it, B. lactis DN-173010. The origin of the bacteria is from food (as the "lactis" name suggests).

Dannon used to market the Activia line of yogurts for constipation help, but after several lawsuits, they dropped the specific health claims. Thus, the name "Regularis" was adopted in the past and still is used in some parts of the world today.
