Yes!  The probiotic Bifidobacterium bifidum MIMBb75 is normally found in the GI tract (along with several hundred other organisms).  And, this strain is found in several over the counter probiotics.  This is an inexpensive safe alternative found to decrease overall bowel symptoms in patients with irritable bowel syndrome.
