Apollo's Hegemony Bifido Forte is a probiotic dietary supplement containing a composition of four precisely defined bacterial strains of the Bifidobacterium genus: B. breve BR03, B. bifidum BB01, B. longum BB536 and B. lactis BI-04. One capsule provides as much as 20 billion CFU of active bacteria, enabling effective replenishment of the natural intestinal bacterial microflora. The use of several bacterial strains provides the desired synergistic effect.
Intestinal balance and protection against infections
Bacteria that naturally inhabit the intestines form a unique and diversified ecosystem that performs a number of important functions in the body. One of the basic functions of the microbiome is the protective function – it prevents excessive multiplication of pathogenic bacteria due to the production of specific substances and competing for binding sites and access to nutrients. Abuse of antibiotics, an inadequate diet based on high-processed foods, stimulants, and stress are some of the main factors affecting the intestinal microflora. They lead to the depletion of the composition and disturbance of the microbiota balance. The effect of this may be excessive growth of pathogenic microorganisms (e.g. Clostridium difficile – a common cause of antibiotic diarrhea), the development of infections and numerous digestive ailments.
Probiotic bacteria, complementing the natural intestinal bacterial flora, positively affect its quantitative and qualitative composition. According to the WHO, probiotics are living microorganisms that, when supplied in appropriate amounts, have a positive effect on health. Probiotic bacteria, like the beneficial bacteria of a natural microbiome, compete with pathogens, modulate the body's immune response, produce pro-health metabolites, and improve the integrity of the intestinal epithelium, thus restoring microbiome balance and protecting against the development of infection.
Strengthening of the immune system
Probiotic bacteria have a modulating effect on the response of the immune system. This is due to their contribution to the proper functioning of the main cell populations of this system, modification of some inflammatory signal pathways and the effect on gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT), which accounts for as much as 75% of the lymphatic cells of the entire immune system. The main function of GALT is to neutralize potentially harmful components that enter the gastrointestinal tract from the outside. One of the main parts of this system are intestinal epithelial cells, which are a mechanical barrier against pathogens. Probiotic bacteria support and stimulate its protective effects, thus contributing to a correct immune response.
The benefits of the lactic fermentation process
Probiotic bacteria of the Bifidobacterium genus belong to lactic bacteria (Lactic Acid Bacteria, LAB), carrying out the process of lactic fermentation. Fermentation of carbohydrates (glucose, lactose) to lactic acid leads to a decrease in the pH of the intestinal content, increasing the absorption of magnesium and calcium salts, which is of great importance, e.g. in the prevention of osteoporosis. Thanks to the ability to break down lactose, probiotic bacteria are helpful in reducing the symptoms of lactose intolerance. Simultaneous consumption of products containing lactose may result in adaptation of the intestinal microflora and restoration of tolerance of the organism to this disaccharide.
The use of probiotics
Thanks to their multidirectional action, probiotics have been used in the prevention and treatment of numerous diseases and disorders. Favorable modulation of the composition of the intestinal microflora positively affects not only the condition of the gastrointestinal tract but also the general health. The main applications of probiotic strains are the control of diarrhea of various origins (including antibiotic-associated and travelers’ diarrhea), alleviation of symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and treatment of inflammatory bowel disease.
Due to the influence on the inflammatory response, probiotics are helpful in the prevention and treatment of food allergies and atopic dermatitis, as an adjuvant in the treatment of common acne and in order to generally increase the body's resistance. In addition, some probiotic strains have an effect on lowering blood cholesterol levels and blood pressure, which is why they are important for maintaining cardiovascular health.
In conclusion, Apollo's Hegemony Bifido Forte is a comprehensive dietary supplement, showing a multidirectional, positive impact on the body's health, favoring the restoration of the normal intestinal microflora and minimizing the negative impact of environmental factors on the condition of the bowel.
Store at room temperature.
It is also worth enriching your diet with prebiotic products, such as dietary fiber – to support the growth and development of beneficial intestinal bacteria and normalize the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract. To improve the condition of intestinal epithelial cells, preparations containing sodium butyrate will be helpful.

What is Bifidobacterium breve?
Bifidobacterium breve is a bacterium naturally residing in the large intestine whose presence and functions have a positive effect on digestion, nutrient absorption and the overall human health. It belongs to nonspore-forming gram-positive bacteria. It is extremely resistant to gastric juices present in different parts of the digestive tract and reach the adhesion site in an adequate amount. It has been demonstrated to have a particular affinity to HT-29 cell line in the intestines.
By producing organic acids and lactic acid, it reduces the alkalinity of the intestines, hereby inducing adverse effects for the development of such pathogens as Clostridium difficile, Helicobacter pylori, E.coli and Candida. Owing to that, it reduces digestive ailments associated with bacterial infection and caused by antibiotherapy. In addition, it has a positive impact in the treatment of candidiasis.
The strains of the genus Bifidobacterium have been detected in breast milk. Owing to that, after passing through the infant’s digestive tract, it shows many benefits to its healthy development. It has an indirect impact on individuals with depression, boosts focus and concentration.
Bifidobacterium breve is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Bifidobacterium bifidum – what is it?
Bifidobacterium bifidum is a Gram-positive bacteria strain of the Bifidobacterium genus. It is non-motile, anaerobic and rod-shaped. In the human body system, it is present mainly in the large intestine, but also in the final parts of the small intestine, vagina and mother’s milk. It is one of the most commonly used strains in probiotic preparations.
The benefits of the use of probiotics containing this bacterium include smaller risk of diarrhoea, induced both by infections and antibiotics, as well as lower risk of infections caused by Escherichia Coli bacteria. It can be also helpful in restoring bacterial homeostasis in vagina. Bifidobacterium bifidum can contribute to better nutrition of the whole organism, because of its ability to produce particular vitamins from B and K groups. It can be also helpful in regulation of respiratory system functions, thanks to the reduction in histamine production and improvement in antibodies response.
Bifidobacterium bifidum contained in many complex probiotic preparations which can be found in the offer of muscle-zone.pl
What is Bifidobacterium longum?
Bifidobacterium longum is one of the most understood strains of probiotic bacteria naturally populating the human body. Like other bacteria of this kind, it promotes the digestion of lactose and other nutrients. Consequently, it helps absorb properly vitamins and nutrients in specific parts of the digestive tract.
Bifidobacterium longum supports the functioning of the immune system and inhibits the development of pathogens, in particular residing in the female vagina, by synthesising lactic acid, lysozyme and other acidic substances. It contributes to reducing inflammations and lowers cortisol levels. It has also the ability to produce B vitamins.
It is used in medicine in treating disorders of gastrointestinal disorders, such as nausea, constipation and diarrhoea. Due to the presence of this health-promoting strain in breast milk, the supplementation is recommended for gaining the best advantages to child development and health.
This bacteria strain is found mainly in complex probiotic or symbiotic formulas available at www.muscle-zone.pl
What is Bifidobacterium lactis?
Bifidobacterium lactis is a strain of probiotic bacteria capable of producing lactic acid which are classifed as gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria. They populate naturally the end part of the ileum and large intestine. Their main function is to compete for nutrients and adhesion sites with pathogenic bacteria. Their properties can be thus desribed as antidiarrhoeal, regenerating the intestinal mucosa, helping the body take in more micronutrients and regulating intestinal peristalsis.
This bacteria strain has also the ability to produce lactic acid from lactose or other substances which will hinder indirectly (by acidifying the environment) or directly (by killing bacteria) the growth and survival of such pathogenic bacteria as Salmonella or Helicobacter pylori.
The supplementation with probiotic strains helps restore healthy intestinal microflora which is nowadays disrupted by many negative environmental factors.
