They are fermenting to produce Lactic acid but are not gas producing.
They are able to survive in relatively harsh environments.
There are approximately 400 varieties of bacteria in the digestive tract and take many years to build up through a healthy diet. Bifidobacteria are predominantly found in the large intestine (i.e.
The digestive tract is slowly moving the food through it via peristalsis.
The probiotic bacteria have many health-protecting functions in the GI tract including the fermentation of soluble fibre into Short Chain Fatty Acids (SCFAs), vitamin production, protein and disaccharide lactose digestion, and stimulating an increase in the number of immune system cells (with associated anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor action). The production of SCFAs in the colon helps to keep the p H of the colon slightly lower (more acidic), to discourage the proliferation of microbial pathogens such as pathogenic bacteria or yeasts etc.
Acidophilus, Bifidus and Enterococcus produce both lactic acid as well as SCFAs (e.g. Many GI tract pathogens thrive in low oxygen, alkaline environments such as the colon. are noticeable aerobic beneficial bacteria in the GI tract.
In other words, the health of your body is largely tied into the health of your gut, and it's hard to have one be healthy if the other is not.
One of the reasons why your gut has so much power has to do with the 100 trillion bacteria--about three pounds worth--that line your intestinal tract.
