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.
For more information on the specifics of this probiotic strain, including details of what studies have shown, look for a future publication, "The B. lactis DN 173010 Guide."
Danone, the parent company of Dannon, markets this same probiotic in milk-based Activia products around the globe. At the time of this writing, some of the names Danone uses for the probiotic in Activia products are:
