The gut environment is established from birth through the first few years of life. It is now seen as an important step during infancy to support health right through to adulthood. ProVen Probiotics for Babies (Breast Fed) has been specifically designed for breast fed babies from newborn to around 3 years of age, and does not require refrigeration. By three years of age, the composition of the microbiome is fixed for life and founding a healthy balanced microbiome as soon after birth as possible is critical in supporting the development of a robust immune system and digestive function.
Factors that can affect the gut microbiome include pregnancy, childbirth, breast-feeding and also things like type of birth (caesarean section or vaginal), medication (particularly antibiotics) and diet. Proven Probiotics for Babies (Breast Fed) contains 10 billion of the Lab4b group of probiotics in one scoop. These bacteria were used in the Swansea Baby Trial. It consists of Lactobacillus salivarius, Lactobacillus paracasei with Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis. All four naturally form part of the microflora population of infants. This formulation works towards a more favourable balance of gut bacteria and a strong immune system, and has been shown to help symptoms of indigestion such as reflux and colic.
As a food supplement using the scoop provided, add two level scoops per day (200mg) to expressed breast milk. Shake well.
Do not add to hot milk. Heat can kill beneficial bacteria.
Alternatively, apply the powder directly into the baby’s mouth by applying to a clean finger and letting the baby suck. Continue until two level scoopfuls have been consumed.
As a food supplement (for older children), take two scoops daily with food.
